Ewal Dvergar

For last round of the Brush Slave League I had to go with the Ewal Dvergar from my own little range of miniatures. Theme was actually doing mounted miniatures,but with this pile of pure new lead just arrived here, I just had to do some of them.

So here is my Round 8 - and final - team for the 2012/13 season:

A mixed bag as there is 4 set #2's, 1 set#1 and then an old Citadel Chaos Dwarf Crossbowman.

The 4 form set #2 are:

Clam Minis: Ewal Dvergar Core Warriors set #2

All using bits for the new set #2 release

Also a Dvergr from set #1 sneaked aboard. Was made ready for a previous entry but never finished. Round 8 seems like the right time doing him.

The 6th guy on this team is an old Citadel Chaos Dwarf Crossbow man. Reason for doing him was that John and I are actually planning on doing a Crossbow Warrior upgrade for the Ewal Dvergar. First step, has been creating a suitable crossbow, so this one here was sculpted and mastered with the second batch of Dvergar.
Having the crossbow in hand, I really had to see how it looked in the hands of a dwarf - and for that the Citadel Chaos Dwarf was perfect - and suits him quite well, I think :-)

And before I leave you all, I'd like to congratulate Jaeckel, Brush Slave Champion 2012/13. He did an incredible job, this hole season. A deserved winner of our second season. Way to go Jaeckel - and your prizes have just been sent.

Will look forward seeing your painted version of this BSL Mad Painter.

Collecting John Pickford: Iron Mask Miniatures Dwarf Musketeers on Kickstarter

The Iron Mask Miniatures Kickstarter is now live

Gary has been working hard getting everything ready and it now good to go - and it do look rather nice.

Lots of options in there for getting your hands on the multi part Dwarf Musketeers but also the limited edition conceptual pieces and the new Ogres.

Hope that his campaign will do well and wish him best of luck. And should you have some spare cash why not spend some of them (if not all) on this great swashbuckling adventure.

Collecting John Pickford: You gotta love these Ogress

This time it's the new miniatures from Iron Mask Miniatures.

The Iron Mask Miniatures Kickstarter is very close, now. And not only will they give you the chance of getting the wonderful Musketeer Dwarfs - no, they will also try and bring out the most wonderful opponents for them - the Cardinal’s Guard Ogress.

And what beautiful sculpts they are:

Iron Mask Miniatures: Cardinal’s Guard Ogress

Awesome, awesome characters and seems sculpted with so much of love and passion. Excellent, excellent work - and these here really stands out as some of the best Pickford's ever.

Doesn't really show on the pictures, but the Ogress are another multi part project - so the complete set will give you a lot of different builds. Here you can see the parts, but I've been told that there will also be some daggers to go with them:

So keep an eye on Iron Mask Miniatures - certainly "One to Watch" :)
