A New Space Dwarf Army.
« on: March 12, 2020, 04:52:06 PM »
All journeys start with the first step... and the same can be said for new ventures.

This will be the first time I will be able to build up an army using my own sculpts... so I thought I'd start with a Commissar:



This chap was once a Berserker who died in battle but, before they could bury him, the ancients decided he died too early so he was resurrected... hence his palid skin.

I have other troops ready to go but they are just primed.

The Commissar is painted so it will be a case of base-coating the other troops here :) .

Another chapter in your Squat Empire?  :D

Look forward to seeing how this develops.  :)

I reckon this army will be separate... it's not going to be quite as drab as my other stuff :) .

A small development (still very WIP):

All painted so it's back to sculpting now :) :



I decided that I'd find a place in this army for an existing unit, also made up of my own sculpts so this small unit of Ratling Snipers will be joining my command platoon :) :



I've painted the bases so they now match those of the Squats.

I reckon I'll be sculpting a couple of special weapon troopers now :) ...

You wouldn't sell your sculpts, would you?

The Squats have already been sold to Macrocosm Miniatures; who will be producing a small range :) . They recently ran a Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2076383099/the-7-dwarves-28mm-sci-fi-miniatures/description

I'm working with them to get a few more sculpts out there...

The Ratlings can be found here: https://cpmodels.co.uk/shop/ru13-halfling-snipers-full-gillie-suits/

Well, I've started work on three more miniatures; two special weapon troopers and an advancing lasgunner. I haven't got very far with them but they all have a body shape and they all have sculpted boots so it's getting there.

The special weapon troopers will have separate weapons so they can each be armed with a variety of weapons... most probably three to start with.

The lasgunner will hopefully get cast and then get another couple of head options... as will the specialists (if I can sort it).

Lots to do, during these uncertain times... and lots of time indoors, to do it.

Some new head sculpts:



The top two will be available for purchase (at some point) but the bottom three are one-offs for my army :) .

There will be more to show off soon.

Cheers :) .

Now that I've finished the head-swaps for my troopers, I have had the chance to get a bit of priming done so I can add a few new recruits to the army :) :
