Lidless Eye Hobbies: Axe and Brimstone-Possessed Dwarfs

Recommended Posts

Here's another group fresh off the paint table, a grouping of naughty nasty Dwarfs from Ganesha Games "Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes: Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter.

I've painted them in gray skin tones, that way they can double up as Duergar, or be used as Warhammer Chaos Dwarves who are a bit far into the Curse of Stone.



The whole horde:

A Screaming Face Axeman:

His buddy, the Glaiveman:

A converted Champion, using the Possessed Champion body, Chaos Marauder Shield, a Marauder Horseman head, an axe off a Chaos Cultist Champion, and a sculpted cloak to cover up a gap, and also it was the same week PETA protested Warhammer.

The Demonslayer.  This guy is actually supposed to be one of the good Dwarves aligned with the Halfling Villagers of the set, but with his demonskull hat, he seems to work as a worshiper as well.

I like them.  They are suitably dark.  I am surprised that you didn't do glowing eyes where they were available, given a few of the masks.  They look good and they probably show a scary front for the forces opposing them.

 

I think that these also show Micah's progression as a sculptor.  The Pelter "cultist" that you have shows how well he can pose things, while the main evil dwarves tend to show his earlier work (excluding the masks, which are awesome).

The unfortunate lighting I have at the house may have downplayed the intensity of their eyes a bit.  In person they stand out a bit more from the helmets...I used the Reaper Holiday "Holly Red" as a final touch and like usual, glossed them after the sealant.  I didn't do the eyes in the armor, though, I felt like having them just be embellished detail on the armor would have them blend with my other Dwarfs better.

 

I agree...the Demonslayer has a much more active, but it seemed like it was hell on casting.  It took me a while to straighten out his weapons, and you can see from the rear view that the back of his short sword seems more like a kukri.  I had the same issues with the Golden Lantern Bearer from the first "Hammer and Forge" set, which is why she only appears now rather than having been finished with the other pieces from that KS.

They would look good in an oldschool Realm of Chaos warband!

 

I like them!

I missed this KS - i like the halflings more than the dwarfs, but the Hellfire Fusilier is one seriously creepy mini!!!

 

Nice paint work - i especially like the flame hair helmet on the lady with the skull staff

Good work on the painting, and the conversions!

 

They work very nicely as Chaos Dwarves

You know, I stumbled across these minis on KS a while back but didn't back them. The Halflings (if that's what they are - the "Good" side), although very nice sculpts, didn't interest me that much and I don't need another game system running around the house, either. Rulesets everywhere, I tell you!

 

I love what you've done with the dwarves, especially the conversion work on the Champion. He has a lot of character to him. The grey skin tone makes them seem fierce, too - almost demonic.

 

For Hashut!

      More vintage minis from my childhood.  Been soaking a dozen or so in isopropyl  for about a week to get the 40 yr old enamel paint off them.  With much scrubbing some of them came out pretty clean!  Will post as they come along, here's one of my all-time favorites. I remember when I bought him in a little attic hobby shop in Ithaca, NY. Unfortunately I don't remember the packaging.  Such a stoic little dude...any ideas?

      Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown.  I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.

      So this is me trying to paint non-metallic metal for the first time. The mini is one of the dwarves from thehnolog's castlecraft line. Since it is my first, I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope I'll get better at this over time. All comments and suggestions regarding NMM are welcome. Thanks for looking!

      Ok lets talk about this mini. 

       
      I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far.
       
      So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like:

       
      And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas:

       
      This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating.
       
      The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini

       
      That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better.
       
      I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!

      Finishing up the last few, here's miniatures that didn't belong with the others.
