Meet the Fimbuls

As promised in the last post I here bring you Borinn and Snorinn Fimbul. The father and son who lead the small band of gold fever-crazed dwarves from the second scenario in Games Workshop’s Orc’s Drift campaign from ’85. Borinn and Snorinn along with 11 other members of their race have thus settled on the plateau of Ashak Rise where they are now completely absorbed in washing gold nuggets out of the silt from the River Canis as the Severed Hand tribe come marching into the scene on their way to meet up with the rest of the orc tribes at Orc’s Drift. Combat of course ensues but the dwarves have a delightfully non-heroic objective.

I really like this pair of miniatures. They have everything I hold dear when it comes to vintage Citadel dwarves. They are very distinct personalities and practically ooze adventure and fantasy. The pair was also very well chosen for the scenario – Borinn, the father, has a stately feel to him as he calmly smokes his pipe, while Snorinn, the son, is smaller, more slender and caught in a dynamic pose. Borinn is originally part of the Dwarf Adventurer range and his son Snorinn belongs to the range of Norse Dwarves.

Along with the Fimbuls you see the three pack mules also part of the scenario.

All good stuff.

    • Thanks Phreedh! I’m glad you like them. I’m also very pleased with how they turned out. I used Iosan Green from Formula P3, which I think actually comes very close to the original Woodland Green from Citadel. I mixed this green with the old Green Ink from Citadel to darken the colour and then used it as the basecoat for the cloak. I then basically built up the highlights by mixing lighter greens and finally some bone white into the original colour.
