Suben Blackmountain stirred in his rest just before sunset


In roughly two weeks I’ll be hosting a small game of Oldhammer. In the scenario the devious robber baron Alban von Edelhahn is returning to his estates with Suben Blackmountain – a dwarf hostage he plans to sell for a nice, big ransom. However, on their way back Alban and his retinue is attacked by Nazgob – a minor, equally devious, goblin chief who is on the prowl with some of his goblin and snotling warriors.

I needed a mini to represent Suben Blackmountain and this gave me a chance to paint a resting dwarf I’ve had in my leadpile for a while. Actually I’m not entirely sure what the deal is with this dwarf. He may be a casualty but he rather looks like a resting dwarf stirred in his sleep. Hence the name for the small scenic shot here.


I’ll be back soon with snotlings galore!

  1. He may be resting… or more likely sleeping off the effects of a dozen-or-so pints of strong ale! Great scenario idea, by the way. Any special scenery planned for this one?

    • I think you’re right. A pint too much made him stagger off into the wild. This is just a quick game we are to play and I have no special things to prepare – well, almost none. I will be finishing a cart from the Perry Miniatures on which the dwarf Suben is to be transported. More about that in a later post.
