Em4 Dwarves.

Recommended Posts

I got some plastic bases from em4, for my Happy Seppuku bases. They had some sirt cheap dwarves, so I threw in a bunch. Turned out to be great fun to paint! Detail is sort of soft, but that just makes speed-painting feel better. The dwarfs are not really dynamically posed, but that feels right for me. They are dwarfs, right?

I should have gotten more shots of the crossbowers. Oh well.  :upside:

 

What do you think?  :upside:

The spear guys look like they are missing their shields.

Wow! That's totally true, can't believe I didn't see that! Oh well, I can glue some shields on them some day.

The Old Plastic Dwarfs painted up BEAUTIFULLY...much better than my memory would have them appear. Your brushwork, bases, & palette are TERRIFIC. VERY WELL DONE!

When you get around to the shields, a bit of variation will give the Vertically Challenged Ones a touch of individuality.

I may have to pick up a battalion of these guys...they make really nice men-at-arms for a dwarven city. How was shipping from EM4?

 

These are solid paint jobs, too. A good group for some PCs to interact with!

I like those dwarfs.  Might look at getting some myself.  Got a big campaign going right now with lots and lots of dwarfs.

I can't remember the shipping, so I guess good? ;) 

 

Thankies!

For people getting them:

 

They are dirt cheap, have a blemish on the back that needs some GS work. Get their pack of shields (I should have!). Bases need some work (I have pics in my WIP).

They are not bad shields, just that most the detail is on the back and on the dwarves, little of that detail will even show. But 50 for 

£ 1.02 isn't bad, even if 1/3 LOOK like they were cast from flat tacks

Plus EM4 has some other really cool figs and stuff. Because I'm still looking for anywhere else to get these round edge cavalry bases other than custom cut MDF (I know litko does plastic, but they want WAAAY too much for 'pill' bases).

Very nice! I have a few of these plus a bunch of their orcs. They are a great deal for the $.

 

 

I may have to get some more of these for a Middle Earth dwarven army.

 

PS- Here is a great article online about modding the EM4 orcs: http://www.combatzonechronicles.net/em4/orcsy.htm

      I present to you the almost nuclear looking troll that utilizes FolkArt's Ultra Dye "Purple Rain" as its inspiration and base shadow and wash.  Also included in the skin triad are Reaper Blood Red and Reaper Brilliant Red for the highlights.
       
      I'll add the remaining paint list later when they are in front of me.  For now, pictures:

      Hey, all!
       
      Over the course of Bones 5, there were a few models that I was hoping for. I would say that Reaper totally exceeded my expectations and covered about 90% of my personal hopes. One of the things that wasn't in there was an Azer. For those of you who don't know, an Azer is a creature from the plane of fire, and they resemble Dwarves. They are so hot that their heads are covered in flames, and often this heat causes their weapons to be set aflame as well.
       
      Since I had an extra Dark Dwarf Pounder from my November order, I figured that I'd try my hand at a conversion. I have exactly zero experience with sculpting other than filling gaps or making a rock or two, but I have YouTube, so why not? The first thing that I did was get the model and choose a base to put it on. I went with a simple flagstone base from Secret Weapon.
       


       
      Next, I shaved off and filed down the little "3 Nail" sigil that these dudes wear. I like that Sigil just fine, but its more representative of Duergar than an Azer, so off it comes. I also clipped away the oval base and filed the feet to be flat.
       

       
      Next, I washed the model and pinned it to a cork. I also washed the base and drilled a hole for the pin, and then stuck that on a cork as well. Once the model was dry, I mixed up some Green Stuff and followed along with a step-by-step for fire that I found online. Basically, you start with a cone and stick it down. I put it on the Dwarf's head, and then used a thin tool to push down the edges of the cone into the head and shoulders. Then, I used tweezers to twist and pull the top of the cone into a sort of whirlwind. Then, dipping the tweezers in water to keep them from sticking, I took sections of the Green Stuff and pulled outward and twisted. Once I had the flames the way I wanted them, I went back in with the tool and made more indentations in the fire. I did the same thing with the flames on the weapon.
       


       
      I'm waiting for him to dry and cure right now, and then I'll get on to priming him and painting him up this weekend! Stay tuned!

      Hellborn Troll
      from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures
       
      I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).
       

       
      I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.
       

       
      It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.
       
      Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.
       

       
      Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.
       

       
      I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.
       
      I am quite happy with him so far.  
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy!

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.
