Wee little dwarves and orcs (10mm)

Recommended Posts

Fantastic looking armies I've always had a soft spot for warmaster and the 10mm scale so its nice to see these being painted up how have you found it for KOW now you have a reasonable amount done.

Thanks.  Once my eyes adjusted to the scale, I had a good time painting them and I'm happy with how they turned out.

 

 

I managed to play one 1000 pt game before leaving for vacation.   As usual I completely forgot to take any photos.  Then again the way the battle went for my dwarves, did I really want to keep a record?

 

After laying out the play area both my friend and I were pretty well convinced that we had got something wrong since it looked impossibly small.  But yeah, it turns out that these guys don't take up much room.  The orcs aren't easy to distinguish from the back so we talked about perhaps labeling the back of the units.  

 

Here is a pic of both armies (a bit over 2000pts each) in one plano box:

I brought this set to the beach and you can see some mid battle shots in the Kings of War thread.  

  

The results of these beach games was that my nephew decided that "his" dwarves needed some more firepower.  Since almost immediately after the beach vacation I had to run out to my brothers house for a good 5 days of babysitting I took the opportunity to bring some gunner dwarves and slightly higher quality brushes so my nephew could paint them.

Not bad, in my unbiased opinion.  He said that it was fun but that he thought painting 28's was better.  To be fair that was pretty much my opinion after painting my first unit of 10mm dwarves.  It grows on you.

      Project: Captain Redbeard's Pirate Dwarves
       
      About this project
      Avast me hearties! Splice the mainbrace and beat to quarters, that galleon is bilged on her anchor and ripe for the picking! Bring us alongside Gibbs. Boomer, get ready on the gun! Pete my boy, are you loaded? Hefty, Sharktooth, Deadeye, follow me! Gyaaarh! 

        This project is to fund production of a pirate dwarf crew, a set of unique miniatures forming a warband of adventuring buccaneers for skirmish gaming or a unit of mercenary fighters in a larger dwarf army. 
      They are 28mm metal miniatures, sculpted by Mark Evans, who produced all the dwarf sculpts in our previous kickstarter. 

        This time we have decided to offer only one pledge level, with all stretch goals being free additions to the set. If you want multiple sets just increase your pledge amount accordingly. 
      Pledge price includes FREE SHIPPING in the UK and discounted shipping of just £2 for anywhere else worldwide.
       If successfully funded each backer will receive one each of Captain Redbeard's crew plus any applicable stretch goals- 
      1. Cap'n Redbeard   2. Bo'sun Gibbs   3. Deadeye Dan  
      4. Hefty Hawkins      5. Slick Willie         6. Sharktooth Jack
      7. Pigwash    8. Little Pete      9. Boomer Svensson and Swivel Gun
       The Captain himself. As gnarly a swashbucking, treasure-hungry dwarf as you could ever hope to meet. He'll fight anyone and anything if there's a promise of doubloons which makes his crew a useful mercenary force to bolster any dwarf army (just don't pay him in advance).
       The captain's trusted Bo'sun, often found leading boarding parties or manning the ship when the captain takes a raiding party ashore.
       His aim is as good with his axe as with his pistol, as many an enemy has found out
       Avast behind! The crew will often mutter about hefty, but not within earshot of him. If you have a door to kick down, a bear to wrestle or a sandwich to eat, he's your man.
       The general opinion among the crew is the Willie fancies himself, with his goatee, ponytail and feather in his hat, he cares a bit too much about his appearance.
       Sharktooth is just a thorough git, a complete thug with a pair of wicked short knives that earned him his nickname. 
       Rumour has it that Pigwash was once captain of his own ship, nobody knows for sure and nobody likes to ask because of that big axe he carries around.
       The smallest of the crew, some say he's overcompensating but with his blunderbuss he can clear a deck or blow a dwarf sized hole in a city gate.
       He's got you covered, the swivel gun is small enough that the crew will often take it ashore for some extra firepower.

      Text Link because picture is a bit too non-PG.
       
      This is a miniature set featuring the Goblin King being carried around by his burly orc goons, as he flaunts his girls and his gold. The set fits well into any 28mm heroic to 32mm fantasy miniature setting. This set can be easily be the center piece to any goblin army.

      About this project
       Hello all,
      You are looking for a female leader for your orc army, or just a cool miniature to paint ? 
      Well, this is my first kickstarter, so don't be afraid if the layout is pretty basic, you will not find supershinywords or coolfantasybackground, it's not my style... What you see is what you get !
      Few words about me. Miniatures sculptor for nearly 20 years, I've worked for a lot of famous companies like Rackham, PrivateerPress, Mierce, and many others...  Today I want to create my own range, to explore my favorite themes in fantasy. 
      All the minis are cast in resin by a skilled craftsman, here in France, no Chinese plastic here.

      I've finally gotten around to taking some photos, so I figured I'd share. A little info on the minis first though. All the bases are made with broken up cork board that was picked up from our local hobby shop. Then dusted with some sand and painted, then flocked. These little guys were clear coated pretty heavily for table use. Sorry about the quality of the photos. It's the best I could achieve with a cell phone. They aren't nearly as glossy in person, and their skin is quite a bit more olive colored in person also. Anyways, here are the item numbers from reaper if anyone wants to hunt them down for themselves:
       
      03400, Orc Spearman and Swordsman
      03405, Black Orc Hero
      03429, Black Orc Archer (X's 2)
      03489, Black Orc Warriors
