Oxy O'Cetylene and Tinman

Between a few of the larger units I decided to paint a Dwarf Engineer for my AoS Dispossessed army. I found that the model of Oxy O'Cetylene would fit well and so I decided to give him a coat of paint. Of course I could not paint Oxy without painting his lovely Tinman too, but I am not sure I can fit him into the army list, but I guess we can use him for some fun scenario or something.

I think they both ended up pretty good. As usual the paintjob is simple and easy, but I like it.

Marauder Quarrellers

Next up I have finished a unit of Marauder Quarrellers for my Iron Hill Dwarfs. This boost my shooting a lot. Eventually I probably need to add ten more figures though. Getting a proper unit leader, banner and instrument will already add the first 3 models.

Front rank.

Second rank.

Besides painting Dwarf models I have also been building a bit of terrain on the side. Some of it can be seen in the back of some of my earlier posts. But since I just finished a Watchtower I thought I would showcase the buildings on their own too.

A Dwarf Brewery.

Scale with Dwarf.

The "Brewery" looks pretty anonymous so far, but I kind of kept it that way, so it could work out as other things too. I will eventually add a bit more small terrain stuff like wagon wheels, shovels, small clutter, to make it come more alive.

Small town house.

The tower top.

My terrain is not the best in the world, but I try to learn and improve as I go along. My houses are build out of cardboard, Popsicle sticks and other free and cheap things I can get my hands on. I really try to keep the budget as low as possible on the terrain front.

But then again I really don't mind my terrain is looking like wargaming terrain and not small scale models. It has an old-school charm of its own.

Medieval Squats Part II

A bit of a progress in my current quest to paint an Oldhammer themed Dwarf army for Age of Sigmar.

A bunch of my characters.

A unit of Pike Dwarfs.

2nd row.

Gamingwise I play the Pike Dwarfs as having 2 handed great weapons (or whatever it is called) and no shields. This is apparently a not so good choice for the Dwarf Warriors, but at least the unit looks good.

Artillery piece.

Combined forces.

I choose to play the army as Dispossessed and use their traits, even though some of my troops are considered allies, according to the rules. All the Dwarf units are just considered Dispossessed and thus benefit from the trade, while the Giant is treated as an ally and gets no bonus. 

So far, so good... Coming up next is Quarellers and some Dark Dwarf Warriors.
