Thanks for the pics, Gandalf! I bring a photo of my Dwarf Lord/King.



For Warhammer Armies Project, I'm running him as a Lord on Oathstone. I'm running the Oathmark King as a Thane for that game.

The sword is sharp, the spear is long! The arrow swift, the gate is strong! The heart is bold that looks on gold, the Dwarfs no more shall suffer wrong!

Status update!

I've kinda been remiss about posting here. So here's what I've bought recently. You can see what I've been painting on my Insta, so here's what's going to see this thread in the future. I've kind of abandoned the Oathmark side of the general-purpose armies idea, instead going for Chaos Dwarfs as my second fantasy army. In pursuance of this, I have purchased:

1. 5x Wolf Riders from Black Tree Design. I understand these were made by a company called Harlequin back in the day. I intend to use them as Hobbos.

2. A Regiment of Abyssal Dwarf Blacksouls. Going to split it up into 10x Warriors, to be expanded later, and 10x Devastators w/ Blunderbusses.

Here's a fairly far along WIP shot of my first Blunderbuss Devastator.

So I've made a purchase of the rulebook for Dragon Rampant. Here's what I have in mind:

Lord - Elite Foot, SMU, Leader - 6 pts
Crossbow Leidang - 4x Heavy Missiles  - 4 pts
Huscarls - Elite Foot, Enchanted Weapons - 7 pts
Leidang - Elite Foot - 6 pts

Looking forward to seeing how you put the army together, and then seeing it in action on the tabletop.

To tide you over while I play our first DR game with my dad and put together the battle report, here's a WIP shot of my Kragg the Grim.

My first few turns of Dragon Rampant: a Report.

Most of the first few turns were spent on maneuvering. We don't have terrain at home, but we figured for a "kill 'em all" scenario, that didn't really matter. There was some combat, leading to the death of his Leader, but we paused after I repeatedly had to retreat from Dad's Heavy Foot/Brigands.

The lists were as follows:


Mine
Lord - Elite Foot, SMU, Leader - 6 pts
Crossbow Leidang - 4x Heavy Missiles  - 4 pts
Huscarls - Elite Foot, Enchanted Weapons - 7 pts
Leidang - Elite Foot - 6 pts

Dad's
Brigand Leader - Scout, SMU, Leader, Invisibility - 9 Pts
Brigand Rangers - Scouts - 6 Pts
Brigands - Heavy Foot, Offensive - 8 pts

Pics are below:


The Dwarfs of Mount Eremite deploy to hunt down the Brigands.


The Dwarf Brigands muster to confront the oncoming King's Men.



Impetuous, the Brigand leader charges out towards the Huscarls. He soon pays for his foolishness. Swinging their axes and hammers two-handedly, the fell-handed, blooded Huscarls lay him low in the dirt.

EDIT: I apparently made a mistake with the points costs of our respective armies, assuming Strength Points to be the same as Points Costs. Mine was 22 pts, while my dad's was...8 pts. A rookie mistake.

Great bunch of dwarves there. I could never collect them myself, much to my chagrin (right from the first days of my Warhammery, I had the Orcs & Gobs, my brother had the Dwarves and Humans) but those are exactly the sort I would have like to seek - the 'stocky but not obese' Norse types.

Thank you, Cubs. I certainly like the Dwarfs I have so far.
