The Coffee Dwarves of Confefe Mountain

7 posts in this topic

Around Easter I was working on some WizKids Dwarves for Elven Coworker, and the idea of Dwarves that venerated coffee instead of beer came about. The pose of one of them looked as if someone had committed the crime of substituting his regular for decaf. And since I've tormented many a coworker with the dictates of Our Coffee God Agamenthar, this all came together. I think it was on the first Acquisitions thread that someone mentioned Confefe Mountain and hence an idea was born that the Dwarves would inhabit a mountain made from a Mr. Coffee.

I'm waiting until after I move to start that project, but here is the throng thus far.CoffeeDwarves.JPG.9957523b69699f2bdb718d2e0f875d1e.JPG

For the time being I'm working on the followers of Maxwell House. I'm thinking that Chaos Dwarves would work for the Tribe of Folgers as it would provide stylistic differences that would set them apart more than just different color schemes, while keeping to the idea of overcaffinated grudge bearing axe wielders.

They hold a grudge against those who drink beer instead of coffee!

Instead of getting alert and worked up those "not proper Dwarfs" are getting intoxicated.

 

Very cool group!

On special occasions they add Bailey's to it. (The Third Law of Agamenthar states that only three things may be added to the brew, sugar, booze, and the blood of worthy foes.),so not so much the grudge against the beer drinkers, they save their ire for those who willingly drink decaf. But as far as rival factions go I'm thinking lizard folk who worship the giant Chameleon of Cold Brew.

I can respect these dedicated dwarves. The dwarves of House Axwell.

      I've been working on these since last year, a couple figures at a time. I hope to eventually put together an entire army of them but redneck sculpts aren't that easy to find. The chronoscope zombie hunters/survivors and the new hillbilly are next on the list of acquirements. 

      The car is a 1/32 scale 1970 Plymouth Road Runner from Jada Toys Fast and Furious line. Somewhat over scale, but it looks close enough and is easy to take apart.

      I resisted the urge to Mad Max it as I wanted it to be more along the lines of a car left in the barn for some years before TSHTF.

      I chose to use warmer colors to match popular 70s shades and to give it a hint of the General Lee.

      These two are the first ones I painted and the freehand flannel isn't the best but it give him the look of a regular farmer. The one on the right is a combination of Darryl from the Walking Dead and Rambo. Both are from Wargames Factory Apocalypse Survivors:The Men.

      Next are Westwind's Redneck Militia. They were fun to paint, especially the cans of Hamms.
      Berkeley was done as a homage to Ash from Army of Darkness.

      I freehanded more flannel on Billy Joe and it came out much better than my first attempt and the flag on his hat came out better than I expected.
      The flock on his overalls was an accident but I'm leaving it as it suggests the white lightning in his jug caused him to stumble a bit. I also am happy with the freehand on his rag.
      Bobby Jo is the one that I think came out the best.
      Eventually I'll get them another vehicle and some plasticville mobile homes.

      Eventually I'll make a full unit of these guys.

      The beginning of what will be another unit of PumpkinGuard. The shape of the shields made the freehand a bit more difficult.

      When I got back into painting in October of 2015, these were among the first minis I bought. Since I'd been painting undead mostly when life got in the way years ago, I thought it appropriate to begin again with the same.(I also got a couple boxes of Zombicide VIPs undead are the easiest things to paint and after an 11 year gap I needed something forgiving at first) However I didn't actually get them done until Halloween of 2016. It was also my first attempt at freehand in years.

      These guys are the combined Grey Alien Scientist, Warriors, and Leaders. They were fun to paint and will be used as opponents for my redneck warband.
      We come for Earth beer and stolen auto parts!
