Good Day Everyone Takes Hat off
I've been collecting Dwarfs for a good 8 years now, and have always had the urge to start up a Chaos Dwarf army. I came across this site and it finally pushed me to attempt a conversion. Usually, i would use GS to convert with, but considering i'm broke and had some spare bluetac around, I salvaged what I could. Unsure

Couple of unpainted pictures.




After painted. (I got the urge to take the hammer off and add a BIG sword Tongue)




I'm not the best of painters, but these pictures make it look worse than it is.. Honestly! Shock
I NEED advice and criticism, Cheers! Cheers!

Good work for your first conversion, the huge sword works well for the model, you said that you used blue tac to do the beard, is it still soft or has the paint hardened it ?
Cheers for the comments everyone, starting to plan my first 500pts of CD Tongue

On some parts it has dried. The beard and the shield have completely set, but the fur on the cape is still a bit soft, and the guard on the sword is terrible. I know blue tac isnt the greatest tool to use but if anyone has some tips i'd gladly listen Happy

A good coat of matt varnish might help to make it solid and protect the other bits, the best bet is to save some money and get some good old gs
