em4 Dwarves through the ages
« on: April 16, 2024, 01:08:26 PM »
Some time ago I decided on reorganising my fantasy forces only to discover that somehow I had very few dwarf soldier units.  Many characters and NPCs but hardly a single unit.  So I ordered a few packs of em4 plastic Dwarves.  And also I wanted the units to be different.  Some figures in the photos below are converted using bits fro other plasic figure sets and there are at least 2 metal figures amongst them.

I like those a lot! Your new units provide a great demonstration of how versatile these classic monopose figures can be. I used a lot of em-4 dwarves in my own army (and will continue to), and even mounted some on ponies to add some cavalry.

Could not agree more.

They are great for conversion and unit filling etc.

mixing in some of the metals as well helps give the units command/hero etc and they look good on the table

Well done with them. Always good to see what someone else's take on them is.
