Roi's Dwarf Warband

Apologies for my poor, convoluted and self-absorbed story-telling skills in the build up to this, but I quite enjoyed fleshing out my characters as I painted them, and it gave me a bit of much needed motivation to not be distracted by other new and shiny ideas/models. When I physically had the model in my hand, the paintbrush in the other, I started to think about who this lump of lead could become, both in terms of colour choices and character. The decision to paint a beard blonde or ginger was as important as to whether he may be ragged or in uniform. Of course the decisions to paint them in any particular way was reflected in their backstory, or at least I hope that was articulated to a degree.

Well here is the warband off to fight in Mordheim or Frostgrave. A load of painted Citadel lead, with a movement tray (just in case this ever makes that leap from a single unit/warband, to an entire army. I dare say it's happened before...

    1. Cheers Phil. When I was a kid a friend of mine had an army of these that I used to play against with my O&G. I always loved looking at the different characters of his models. And now 30 years later some of them are mine!

  2. They look great as a rag-tag warband ready for the streets of Mordheim!

  4. Cheers Blue, in truth they didn't need much, they're full of character when just bare lead.

    Hope your well. I'm from Miniature Wargames magazine, a UK-based monthly publication dedicated to fantasy, sci-fi and historical wargaming. I came across your blog and wanted to feature a miniature of yours in an article I'm currently writing (specifically, your mutated Frostrgrave troll). If you'd be keen to have it shown in our magazine please do get in touch - my email is james.winspear@warnersgroup.co.uk

    Many thanks,
