Lately I have started painting again after a few weeks without swinging the brush. I finished five dwarfs – a quite mixed bag really. Three old Norse dwarfs and an Imperial dwarf. I really love the Norse dwarfs; they have so much character. The Imperial dwarf with the odd, almost fly-like helmet is a quite strange mini, but I like it. One could easily paint him up to be a chaos dwarf for instance which undoubtedly would look cool.
The last dwarfs is a really old, pre-slotta Citadel dwarf. I bought five of the on Ebay for next to nothing do to some minor damage on all of them. The face – especially the nose – on this one was for instance flattened considerably. It gives him a strange look but I kind of like him anyway.
By the way, the concept for the bases is stolen from Jackael’s wonderful dwarfs.
Two hobby related things are also coming up. Next weekend Claus and I will go to Hamburg Tactica again, which I’m really, really looking forward to. Last year was a spectacular event and I expect this year to be nothing less. I also hope to do some good bargains – especially in the stalls with secondhand stuff.
The next thing is that I will be trying Warlord Paul’s skirmish “A bridge over troubled water” on March 27 with my pal Rasmus. It seems like a lot of fun and fits neatly, with minor adjustments, into our ongoing series (I dare not call it a campaign) of 3rd ed. Wahammer battles. I need to do some preparations for this, which I will be posting about during the upcoming weeks. For instance I need to make a river and a bridge, something I’m actually looking forward to. Well, more about this shortly, where either me or Claus probably also will return with pictures from the event in Hamburg.
