I've had gunpowder tea in the past, so having dwarves weaponize coffee somehow makes sense. They look like an eager and alert group.

 

For the piece itself, the coffee pot is the only thing I can see that needs further decorations. I'm picturing the Starbucks logo converted to a dwarf beard.

The Vertically Challenged Caffeine Powered Lads & their cannon painted up WONDERFULLY...TERRIFIC brushwork & a FINE choice of colors.

The coffee pot makes the piece for me. VERY WELL DONE!

I thought about that, but Starbucks is more of an Elven thing. 

What about a take on Death Wish Coffee's logo instead? ^_^

 

Love these guys, especially the "normal sized" tankard of coffee!

Nice work. Love that the cannonballs aren't metal.

Especially given the color scheme (and the IRL rivalry), I think you need to go with a Dunkin' Donuts theme.

 

Dwarven Donuts?  Or Drunkin' Donuts?

 

I don't know. I just live here.

Right now I'm using GW and Reaper dwarves for Maxwell House, I plan to pick up some Chaos dwarves for the Folgers army, so a Dunkin theme would work for the Oathmark ones once I get around to acquiring some.

I know caffeine supposedly stunts your growth, but that's ridiculous! :) 

...Because they are dwarves, and dwarves are short?...  <somewhere a cricket chirps>

Hey, I tried, and I haven't had my own coffee yet...

 

Awesome stuff! I don't know how some of you folks come up with these great creative ideas.

I didn't really factor that in...although it fits in a way. Mayhap a side effect of the blessing of Agamenthar the Coffee God, or a vile slander thrown out by false doctors who serve the demon Yuban, I am not yet sure.

The myth that coffee stunts your growth was invented out of whole cloth as an advertising scare campaign by Postum coffee substitute, back in the 1930s before truth-in-advertising laws were toughtened.

 

Just thought I’d mention.

 

Anyhow, these are adorable.

      Painted this guy up to act as our dwarven barbarian for some Adventurers League gaming at an upcoming con.
      Messing around with skin tones. I may go back and add some tattoos before I finish coating him with varnish (he's got one coat of gloss right now). Am not sure what to put on him, other than maybe the rune for anger.

      Cute little dwarf from Bones 3. I painted her up to look like my priest in World of Warcraft. She is adorable! I still need to practice black hair but I like how she turned out and she is for kicking elf on the table so she's good to go. I practiced doing some plaid on her top. She also has a little bottle strapped to her waist. Is it a healing potion? Poison? Or just wine? Who will try it and find out?

      I’m happy with the progress so far, but every time I take photos I can see missed spots or places that would benefit from more attention. 


      Apologies for double post. Admins, Plz erase one of your choice.

      Most of these were painted in 2017, I believe, though I don't have track of it exactly. I organize my WIP pics in folders by date, but I gave up keeping 'count' so to speak as it interferes with actually painting and modeling! (If you want to see a particular unit you can probably just search this forum, I believe I've done individual Show Off threads for all these guys).
       
      Anyway so here's my current pride and joy :D all my boyz in their glory etc. Hope you enjoy!

      I got my brother a set of Reaper's core paints for Christmas -- he's just getting into painting.  Since I ordered them in November, I wound up with FOUR of the silver anniversary Dain Deepaxe, and offered to help him break in his paints by painting this one up.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      This one came damaged -- missing half of one horn and with a crack down the center of the mini.  You can see it on his right shoulder.  I decided to paint this one because the damage made it more interesting: clearly, he's been in desperate combat against some dread beast whose terrible claws clove straight through his horn and cracked his armor before he finally laid it low.
       
      I've also decided not to ask for a replacement.  Even after giving one to my brother, I've got two unpainted ones left.  That'll be plenty, thanks.
       
      His left arm is also different from stock -- I messed up the pin placement and it just would not fit normally, so I had to use green stuff to give him a bit more bicep than he'd usually have on that side.    Let that be a lesson, people: get your pins centered!
