Here are my dwarf treasure hunters warband for Mordheim. I'm not sure why I started playing Dwarves (since my main Fantasy army was a Nurgle Chaos Warriors army), but have loved them ever since!

The unarmored lunatic!

For him, I tried to get the wood grain effect on the axes. You can kind of see it. Also gave him small tribal tattoos. I was not very happy with them but was not about to change them. I painted him for a speed painting competition against someone over on another forum (I got schooled).

The whole band

I know the picture is not that close up, but it's the best I have at the moment.

The regular warriors have brettonian shields, and when stacked up make an awesome armored phalanx similar to:


I'll try and get a picture of the unit at some point.

Criticisms and comments welcome. Have at it!

Very cool!

How do you handle the warband's low Initiative value in games? I've always found Dwarves to be at a disadvantage in Mordheim.

Even as a Goblin Guy, I love the Dwarfs...you did a SPLENDID job bringing them to life. The Roman Shields are a nice touch; Harlequin at one time made a unit of Dwarfs in Roman costumes that I painted up for a friend...I'll see if I can get a photo for you. That aside, VERY WELL DONE! What a Face

@Arachas: Honestly, shields and armor. Oh and helmets so they are rarely stunned. If I can survive the hurt, I find I can deal out even more hurt. As for the slayers... they are just too much fun. I never really care if they die I just enjoy throwing them at people.

@DeafNala: Thanks man! Your praise means a lot. I've been stalking a few of your threads so when you say they are very well done my head grows like 3x.

Cheers,

Alrighty, just played some death squads (and a buddy used my dwarves as proxy orcs... blasphemy!). So I decided to take pictures of some of them. Enjoy!

The whole army

Nice Dwarves!!! What did you proxy them as? IG? Ha! Love 'em! Excellent table top quality... maybe they are better, but I can't see the details. I'm just happy you shared them!

VERY COOL! That formation with the shields interlocked overhead is a testudo (turtle); it offers some protection from missile weapons.
The black & silver shields have a striking appearance. VERY WELL DONE! What a Face
