It took longer than I expected to get these guys done, but I'm happy with how they came out. They're part of the Warhammer Battle for Skull Pass set that I bought in 2007. The base is a bit uneven as when I glued down the back of a blister pack for the stonework it split open and I covered it in with gravel. In the future I'm going to have to use something else as it really didn't register as "stone" to my eye, but the cannon covers most of it at least. The powder barrel is a small Reaper bones barrel I've had for awhile, the cannon balls are 25mm airsoft ammo and the coffee pot is from an old Marx toy factory dollhouse set. Vastly overscale until one thinks about the thirst of the average dwarf! I had the idea of adding some thing for each dwarf, ammo for the hauler, gun powder for the engineer, and coffee for the swabber with the mug. The aforementioned gap filling. Base of craft paint Pavement with Stormy Gray and Rainy Gray drybrushed over it. The crew in Maxwell House colors. The swabber looks to be well on his way to caffinated bliss!
Continuing on with painting things from the shelf of shame this guy has been primed and the base partially done for at least 16 months. The cannon is from Mantic (it's part of a Dwarf cannon) and the figure is Privateer Press. The water was done by painting two sea greens in the base (one for darker and one for lighter areas which were only around the cannon) then I poured in several layers of woodland scenic realistic water that were slightly tinted blue. After that I used Woodland Scenic Water effect to do waves and then dry brushed on a light sea green then straight white.
