Square based and unfazed: my Dwarven army will stomp through The Old World again

My Dwarven army is finished and ready to stomp through The Old World again. To be fully honest I took them out for a spin already (most of them bare-based and some unpainted (heresy, I know)). But having them all lined up and fully painted is just a wonderful sight I wanted to share (and brag about, I'll be honest here ;). Without further ado, here's the lot:

Owning a fully painted army is a Warhammer dream well worth chasing.

Dwarf Gyrocopters join the throng

I believe that the odds of arriving late increase with your proximity to work or school. In the same vein: the less you have to paint to finish an army, the greater the chance it'll never get done (yes there's a Catch 22 there ;). With that in mind, I forced myself to finish the final two Gyrocopters I needed to complete my Dwarven throng. Well okay, I painted three, because for some odd reason I printed three of the things.

Hojotoho! Hojotoho!

Khazukan Kazakit-ha! (Old World Dwarves on the warpath!)

Wow! 2024 seems to fly by with no time to spare for blogging. Luckily I have found time to paint and - as is the prerogative of  wargamers - switch projects :). My Bretonnians have been (temporarily I'm sure) pushed aside in favor of quickly finishing a Dwarven army. I used (a few days from) a week of vacation to finish a bunch of Stunties. Here's the result.

The heart is bold that looks on gold. The Dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

Is it hip to be square? These Bretonnian Peasant Archers seem to think so!

I used to be a renegade. I used to fool around. But I couldn't take the constant rule updates, and had to settle down. Now I'm fighting in The Old World again, and yes, I must be fair. Because even though I prefer rounds, the bases must be square. 

Having given that bit of eighties nostalgia quite enough abuse, let's skip on to the main course: my first square based unit in (at least) a decade.

"Sire the people are revolting!"
"You said it, they stink on ice."

She walks, my 3D-Printed Legio Ignatum Warlord Titan!

The miniature painting hobby has many faces. There are projects that get stuck in the 'I'll do it one day'-phase, others end up on the pile of shame and - once in a blue moon - plans actually come to fruition. Then there are the projects you finish that make you wonder: should I have started this one? I think this 3D-printed Warlord Titan firmly falls in the last category. But to be honest I already know the answer: Yes I should have! Because it is one hell of a sight to behold (and 'miniature' to hold).

My full (32mm) scale Warlord Titan walks, in proud Legio Ignatum colors of course.

A (no doubt hijacked) Colossus Heavy Transporter roars onto the tarmac

 Ah the joys of 3D-printing, it masks as a way to feed your hobby and turns out to be a hobby in and of itself. I should really update my attempt at a 3D-printing for wargamers faq soon. With that said, here's another painted 3D-print: the Colossus Heavy Transport with Container by Print Minis.

You have to wonder: are those future delivery people or high-tech porch pirates?

Red Sonja a painting experiment in 1:12 scale

Life seems to have found a way to get in the way of blogging. Fortunately I do still find time for my hobby (a lot of it is taken up by 3D-printing to be honest). Despite having a lot of half-finished projects on the table, I couldn't resist taking on another one. So this week I attempted to paint on a new scale. Here's a  1:12 scale Red Sonja 'miniature' (it's about 7 inches to the top of the stone throne).
