When I first saw these I thought they were awesome! After I painted them, I still thought they were, however, they are a bit static in their poses. But really, so much character!

My first unit of Dwarf Ironwatch from Mantic. Their rifles bristling, and among their number, a passed-out-drunk warrior getting in the way. The group leader there has red gloves! What an honour, and those goblins/humans/undead can pick him out as a target from miles away!

From the side the little rifles don't look all that imposing. But I'm happy with the painting and the way they turned out.

The figures come in two poses, one with the rifle up, the other with the rifle more or less up, but not right to the eye. The one with the rifle at the eye is a bit touch to paint, given the melding of the head into the body to facilitate the two-piece mould. Also, you can see a little of the captain's cloak pattern there.

A close up of one dwarf with an arrow in his shoulder. It takes more than an arrow in the shoulder to drop a mountain dwarf!

A close up of the left side of the unit. Over all, the uniformity really lends to the effect.

A top view, meant ot showcase the cloak pattern that was nicely covered up in the unit-basing scheme.

A top view of the passed out drunk dwarf there!

I saw someone had done a similar dwarf hero with two weapons and I liked it. So, I copied the idea! Mimicry if a form of flattery after all! I am happy with how it turned out, but it doesn't really have a place in the Kings of War lists...

My first dwarf regiment in all its glory. I really like how these guys pack together, and I appreciate the dead dwarf markers they include on the spru...

As you can see, the dwarves are pretty packed in with a little space in the front to help define the unit. In dwarfland, the chieftain leads the charge!

A small hole in the shieldwall shows pretty clearly hear. The elven bows found some chinks in the dwarven armour. The arrows, although just for fun, make up a crucial colourful element in this regiment though; given that it's all black and white, the arrows add the required accent to let them look good I think. The arrows and the blood accent the regiment perfectly!

Another side shot here, showing the arrows and blood a bit more clearly.

The back of the unit here, note the patterns on the cloaks and loin-cloths. From this angle, there is a lot of silver...

A top-ish view of the dwarf regiment shows how many - or how few - figures actually make up this regiment. In total I was only able to fit 14 of the Mantic dwarves on the base; their skeletons could have packed in 25 at least, but with the dwarves there is scant room to spare. With the white space I left at the front, I doomed myself to be stuck with fourteen, one of which is dead.

A top view of the dead dwarf. Dwarves can survive a shot to the shoulder perhaps, but not the eye... Aside from the arrows, this figure is vanilla, straight off the Mantic spru.

An unlucky dwarf will definitely experience a loss of strength in his blows... if he even makes it to the elven lines thanks to those poisoned arrow heads... But dwarves are resilient!

A view of the unit from the top. They are absolutely packed in there, and in the end I think I could only fit 15 dwarves... There's realy no room for white space in dwarven regiments.

The backs of the dwarves is a sight that precious few of their enemies ever see... Note the attention to detail on the cloaks and backs of shields.


Dwarf King from Mantic Games painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

The dwarf king that I put together using the plastic dwarves from Mantic along with a shield from some Celtic cavalry from Wargames Factory. I struggled with the shield design for this one, but in the end I took inspiration from the celtic shield designs, but added the dwarven iconography..


Dwarf army standard bearer from Mantic Games painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dwarf army standard bearer  -  Posted: June 13, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Mantic Games
These are the simplest army standard bearers I've ever done! Without a flag, it's pretty easy to do, but now I'm regretting not using a flag anyway! Oh well, it's still pretty cool, especially since it's unlike any of my other fantasy armies. The shield design was a difficult decision for me, but after a few attempts at various designs, I figured I'd go with the large jewel... It's cheesy, but I think it works!


Dwarf Shieldbreakers - shield breakers from Mantic Games painted by Neldoreth - An Hour of Wolves & Shattered Shields

Dwarf Shieldbreakers - shield breakers  -  Posted: March 28, 2011  -  Manufacturer: Mantic Games
The first unit of mountain Dwarves for my coming dwarf Kings of War army. These are shield breakers... They use giant hammers! This is a test unit, and I'm not all that sure that I like the scheme, but I'm happy with it for now!
