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. 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.
The Saga of Frothumbar and his fall can be found in the Coffee Dwarves of Confefe Mountain WIP thread.
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!
