Back to working on dwarves. Test scheme for my box of Oathmark infantry.
My Entry for the Chaos Dwarf Online Artisan's Contest:
**Hammy and Eggz**
Something, Something... when pigs fly.
Starting from the Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer on Lammassu, or the named character Zhatan the Black on Lammassu. I noticed the Ewal Dvergar had a boar theme instead of a bull theme. Also the Ewal Dvergar Patriarch looks to me like Metaknight from Kirby cut off most of a Dwarf's head and is resting on what's left of the jaw. Not important, just my first thoughts.
So now to name the thing. Eggzerrach the Dark on Mantiboar (Manticore+Boar)? Evil Squat Mage on Flying Pig? Draganon (Dragon+Ganon)? Mutated Boar? Hammassu? Too far? Not too far enough? Either way, if I was better at this, I would absolutely have this third drawing fixed, coloured properly, and painted on the side of a van. Which is the benchmark for this comp in my mind. Is it Van worthy?
Now to mock up a quick model with stuff on hand. Here is the Ewal Dvergar Patriarch on Hammassu, or Eggzerrach on Hammassu arguing over which direction they should be going:
Obviously it should be a bigger boar, and I should have changed up the Dwarf a bit, but it works as a visual. Pretty cool, but not epic. Definitely not Van worthy. Hammy needs bigger wings, the Sorcerer's helmet is cool, but it needs the addition of a bigger wizardish hat, and a billowing cloak.
Not quite Van Worthy yet, so let's turn his battle axe into a Scepter. Also maybe change his title from the dark to Eggzerrach the Lost, as he and Hammy still argue over the correct direction.
Because I used a bit of wire and cloth for the cloak, it can be reshaped, so pointing it a bit downwards now. Still billowy, just not plummeting now.
Hammy and Eggz are forever lost, but that last picture I would say is van worthy.
Amazing, love the creativity
Very nice painted dwarfs!
Yes! YES! Bow down to the Father of Darkness!
I believe this is the best dwarf army
Simply because they are rocking the big hats.
"Who said dwarfs are small and tiny?!"
That's an awesome model.
Is that Prince's monogram I see on his axe?
