    Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!

    Today I proudly present my non-lizardmen thread, but I hope you'll still enjoy some of my painted dwarf, elf, undead, orc, goblin, etc. miniatures and stories that I have for you. :)

    I hope you enjoyed that part! ;)

    P.S.
    Should I post everything I have to show(off) about my dwarfs in the upcoming parts, or should I perhaps switch between different armies and races in each new addition? What would you, guys, like to see? :penguin:

    Fantastic army and fluff to go with it! You got a big group shot too?

    I would say posting each army one at a time would be easier, but no real preference. Looking forward to the rest!

    It's a kind of extreme request (especially when it's from a guy who takes his pictures with a phone and didn't even managed to have a light box or a suitable background for his models...) but it would be really cool if you'd kind of create a kind of storytelling... introducing each army and later merging them in little comics like the one in the terrain challenge... that would be really cool...

    Thank you very much. I am flattered, really. ) :angelic:
    Yep, I do have several group shots of the entire army. My plan was to show them once I present all the units separately. )

    That is indeed most likely easier that way than switching between different stories. After all the viewer/reader might lose interest or line of a particular story. :bookworm:

    I guess that can be done. ) Thanks for the idea! I never really thought of merging different armies together. :)
    And yes, I should get myself a proper camera with macro lens and perhaps print some background pictures. Alas no free cash for camera now..... Until I finally stop sharking eBay for deals for WFB miniatures..... :confused:

    Dwarven phalanxes are indeed sensible. Striking colour scheme and neat paintjob over a whole army! It's a skill to mass-paint miniatures, one which I've never come close to mastering despite numerous attempts.

    Thank you. ) :) Mantic Bulwarkers are a strange set: hard to assemple, relatively expensive, but the final result is very impressive. I think GW had some speardwarfs in earlier editions?

    Come to think of it, the new AoS KO aboninations do have spears as well..... Hm, perhaps I should convert some of them into proper dwarfs. :writing:

    Thanks, Admiral! :) I thought you might be interested in seafaring dwarfs. Mass painting is a must for me, though I would have wanted each of them to have more individuality for sure. However my appetite for new and bigger armies is insatiable, so more..... MORE! :woot:

    I might even eventually get to abyssal dwarfs army. I do not really like Mantic one, so I shall have to look for alternatives..... Scibor, perhaps? :)

    @The Penguin I see your point with the spears. I also am a big fan of those dwarf ranger models, I have always liked those. And the brock riders are cool, they remind me of the giant badger-warriors from the Redwall series (though those weren't mounts of course).
