Norse Dwarf Painting Blog Complete
After a productive week I have finished the team.



Since I already had 2 dwarf cheerleaders I added Queen Helga’s helmet to the existing model along with plated hair and fur sculpted on her boots. I’d have liked to do a Zara themed Valkyrie with that helmet but couldn't find a suitable model. She was a pretty simple paint job, I wanted her to be mostly in blue with some off-white to break it up so painted her sleeves, belt and the D on her top that colour. I'm especially happy with how the shading of her face and the “D” on her top turned out. I even went so far as to give her blue eyes, which is normally very tricky on such small models.




The chainsaw is actually my most involved conversion, though it may not at 1st be that obvious. The original model had heavy chainmail armour which did not look appropriate for the team. So I took my dremel to him and cut out his torso and forearms. This was replaced with legs and hands from a slayer with the forearms coming from some plastic Catachans. His saw is the chainblade from the plastic sentinel with pipes from Ork killer kans and a sword hilt to make the handles.




I must admit to being a little disappointed with how Grim / Wilhelm has turned out. I gave him the nose of a beastman, added a shoulder pad and sculpted fangs, toe claws and lots of fur on him plus he has hands from the Wulfen. But his pose doesn’t quite work, the hands are a bit big and so I like him less than the 2 normal slayer / ulfwereners. The photo of him from the front doesn’t help things as that could have been better too. Maybe I should have modelled him more wolf like, with a more feral looking face.




I’ve kept the best till last as this is my favourite model. It was hard to think up a concept that would be suitable for a hard to control frenzied monster with claws but would also suit a slow, lumbering but immovable machine with mighty blow.



My initial plan for the Deathroller / Snow Troll had been to use this model, possibly with a helmet, shoulder pad and some added pistons and gears. I’d even gone as far as buying the model. But after giving it much thought I didn’t think I could make it look suitable as a Deathroller, nothing about the model really matched a slow, clunky machine with ST7 and stand firm.




This was actually a pretty simple conversion, I removed most of the warpfire cannon arm (leaving the powerpack) and stuck it to his back as an exhaust. I then replaced his right arm with a claw from a Necromunda Pit Slave and gave him the head of a daemon prince with the slayer champion Mohawk. After that it was just a case of adding greenstuff sideburns to fit in with the other were’s and some extra fur on his body.

For painting I kept with the orange fur since he is a sort of robot were-slayer and gave him a darker skin tone too. I didn’t want him to look undead as snow trolls don’t have regen so all the bones were painted silver to represent the metallic exoskeleton. In keeping with the team colours of blue, silver and off white I painted his bandages bone and armour as well as a few other parts blue.




The final pic shows the full team on their display base. They have now been varnished so are all done.

I usually love your themes, but this one looks horrible to me. Still, congratulations for your paint art, it's awesome! :)
Posted by Jeffro on 2013-05-21 01:45:02
Not my favorite either... but that stems from a hatred of dorfs and a love of Norse, so the unholy union - while impressively done - is not my favorite.

Still in awe of your work, though. I would love to pick your brain about a theme team I want to do.

Nice work. If I was going to nitpick, it would be with the size of the the heads on those 2 old Marauder minis, which is a touch out of place with the rest of the team. But there's enough of them that you could just not field those two. Still, as I say, very nice.

And even in my wildest dreams id still roll a triple skull if i tried anything like this. Fantastic work.

Great team with some nice thoughts put into it, the snow troll is really funny, and cool at the same time...

the chainsaw dude is fantastic!

Possibly the creepiest cheerleader ever.

I approve! :D
Posted by Dhaktokh on 2013-05-21 12:00:26
Can I have that cheerleader for my Crossdressers?!
Posted by Rabe on 2013-05-21 16:21:04
Eh, I just wanted to ask if I can have her for the Monsters! ;-D

Nice work! I wish I had the skills to do a thing like that... Well, I'll try some day. :-)
