Norse Dwarf Painting Blog part 2
I’ve made more progress since my last blog but the deadline is rapidly approaching with just 3 weeks to go.




Both throwers have been finished now, these use torsos from GW models, a cannon crewman and champion.
I don’t know why but for some reason a winged helm seems appropriate for throwers, maybe it’s because of the High Elf Phoenix warriors. The mask on the other gives him a targeting eye to help with the much feared Dwarf passing game.



The 2 runners are very simple conversions using some old marauder giant slayers. The only tricky part was routing their hair to fit in the shoulder pads.
I thought they would be useful to as slayers on a dwarf team if someone didn’t want to use the were-slayers. I procrastinated a lot with these guys as I wanted one of them to be in a more dynamic catching pose but so few dwarf models have interesting poses with them being a bit stumpy. The guy on the right/left looks more like a baseball player with that glove sadly. I am not as happy with these 4 as the linemen and blitzers.

I’m a little worried that the positionals might not be that easy for opposing players to tell apart. As I was painting the runners I hit upon the idea of giving all the players colour coded hair. So both runners are blonde since they have agility access, this would mean redoing some of the other player’s beards to make the throwers have white/light grey hair, the blitzers reddish brown and the linemen brown (it should really be grey going by the old colour codes but brown allows more variety and suits Norse better). I will probably only do this if I finish ahead of schedule, I’d much rather spend that time on the stars or a display base.



My sculpting abilities are pretty mediocre and I find it difficult to add fine greenstuff detail to existing models. So I hit upon the idea of using beastmen heads for the 2 were-slayers. The guy on the right is a mordheim slayer that I’ve had in my bits box for ages. I routed out his mouth and back Mohawk to fit the shoulder pad in and replace it with a beastman gor mouth. The other slayer uses the standard from the AoW berserkers with the head of an ungor and arms chopped off. Both models use hands from ghouls, but since they are a bit skinny I added a lot of fur to the back of their hands and fingers. I sculpted a lot of fur onto their back, arms and legs as well. I went for a darker skin tone on them, starting with brown and working up to dwarf flesh.
The guy on the left is supposed to be howling at the moon but he does look a little like Slayer Jesus.



This is a mock up of the deathroller/snow troll, he stills needs more mechanical bits added along with some more fur on his arms and tail. I’m thinking of painting the bones brass or silver to make him look mechanical rather than undead, and possibly give him a buzz or claw saw arm to represent claw/MB, the claw is blu tac'd on where it would be.
This will be the next model I complete as he’s the only model I have to get done to make a normal team of 16. Anything after that will be a bonus.



Both Flint and Grim are being greenstuffed so not much to show pic wise for them. But I have done some work on a cheerleader, I’d bought a couple of them to add to my 2nd edition dwarf collection so thought I’d put her to good use. I had the horned helm left over from converting queen Helga into a chav slayer (complete with a half elf, a half goblin and a half chaos dwarf baby) and combined that with some of the platted hair you get with the AoW berserkers, I added some fur to the top of her boots too. Cheerleaders are kind of useless but she will be pretty easy to paint so she’ll be done if I can get the stars completed on time.

I’ve bought a white picture frame to make a display base, but will have to look at how easy it will be to do the ice on such a large scale considering there will need to be huge holes in the foam to accommodate the bases.

The Snow Troll / Death roller is goddamn genius. I hate dorfs. Period. You make me not hate looking at them... in this instance anyway ;)

I like both Dwarves and Norse. These are incredible. Deserves to be rated 6 twice!
