Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Grimstonefire - 06-29-2007 05:51 PM

This is a bit late really, but its for the compilation sticky.

I did this model at the end of last year I think.  Its based on the 6th ed Dwarf Lord in gromil armour.  Its my best conversion to date and if I touch it up a lot I might enter in golden daemon.

yep you should!
to my birthday, i want some conversions form you, agree? Cheers!

Looks brilliant!Takes Hat off
I have already seen the painted version but its great to see the work in progress! The helm/mask looks really good and I like the trophy-like tusks/horns mounted on the back, so much they will definetly be used in my army!! have you seen the new 'Serpant guard' minis from the LotR Easterling range? if the trophies there are available as components they will be all over my army!!
That's well worth entering into Golden Demon by the way, Takes Hat off again Grimstonefire!!!


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord - Kyte - 06-30-2007 06:16 AM

Damn it's great! I'm not too keen on the mask though. IMO, it could need some more skull-ness or some tusks, but otherwise it's close to genious!

Thanks

I like it a lot.  I'm moving away from the skull-masks myself.  Plus he is a lord so he should be different anyway.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord - Kobarf - 06-30-2007 11:19 AM

Yes amazing conversion and great paintjob Takes Hat off
I actually really like the mask, it's not evil looking but more sinister, which is a great look for chaos dwarfs imo.
Definitely enter it in the GD and get us some more attention by winning Cheers!

I think if you're going to enter it in a GD, some of the things that need to be touched up are: the gauntlets, the look a little muddy, can't really make out the detail. I'd also brighten up the detail on the axe head, it also looks a little dark. Overall i love the GS work. Absolutely superb, keep up the awesome work.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord - Uzkul Werit - 07-01-2007 04:46 AM

I'm amazed that you could pick out the eyes so well on that model. Good job.
If you're going to GD then I'll see you there. I might be wearing the big hat of justice! Big Grin


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord - AGPO - 07-01-2007 11:50 AM

Both Chaosy and Dawrfy, I love it! I've always admired this conversion and have searched the forum looking for it! I too used that model as a base for a lord but its nowhere near as good. I may try again though, I really love the model its based on


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord - Xander - 07-02-2007 09:29 PM

The model is pretty sweet, for sure.  Makes me wonder how long I am going to have to wait for more Grim awesomeness.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord - AGPO - 07-03-2007 09:07 AM

Maybe he should start an army blog. Btw I say maybe in the same way that it is maybe best to comply with the man with the machete


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Xander - 08-23-2007 11:10 AM

Added a pic of Grim's Blunderbuss to his post, for reference.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Pyro Stick - 08-23-2007 11:32 AM

That lord is an awesome beast. I wish i could sculpt that good...


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - wallacer - 08-23-2007 04:55 PM

I wouldn't really call that a conversion, it's more of a scratch built miniature.

Very inspiring, I must say.  I'll have a crack at something like that when I get the time.

It started as a Thunderer.

i think he ment the lord xander, not the blunderbuuser, the lord started out as one of the older dwarf thanes

In either case, both are conversions with sculpted additions. Takes Hat off


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Rootbeer - 08-23-2007 07:28 PM

My only criticism would be that when holding an axe the cutting edge is usually in line with the forearm of the upper hand


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - minty - 08-24-2007 03:09 AM

thats GW sculpting problem though, since the arms are normal, just greenstuff coated, there is no way to not like grims lord, it is one of the greatest CD's in the world

The reason weapons are at the wrong angle on most figures (not just GW ones) is because everything on a sculpt needs to be in the same plane in order to cast it. An axe or sword at a perpendicular angle to the rest of the figure wouldn't cast very well.

It also allows any design on the weapon to be displayed more easily when painted.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Dracomancer - 08-24-2007 04:20 PM

Woah, good stuff, any chance of some close-ups on the detail, cheers! Cheers! Takes Hat off


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Xander - 08-24-2007 04:29 PM

Not for a while!  Grim is taking a break from forums for a while.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Goopdrada - 01-27-2008 05:47 AM

man thats a work of art, send it into GD


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Traitor King - 01-27-2008 06:25 AM

*ahem*

Threadomancy, no?


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Grimstonefire - 01-27-2008 06:31 AM

I'll take some close ups once I've repainted the mask & base on the Lord.

The blunderbusser update will wait until I've finished painting a few more.

@Thomson
Once my army is finished (up to 1500 pts) I will take some photos and send them to GW.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - minty - 01-27-2008 07:29 AM

I guess, it's still the most awesome chaos dwarf ever though

*Note to self: kidnap grim and force him to sculpt my army for me* - ummmm, everyone ignore this part


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - tackaberry - 01-30-2008 12:30 AM

I first saw this taking form at the German Immortals Seite 8.

Beautiful.


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Nazhur - 01-30-2008 05:54 AM

Great stuff, good work


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Hashut's Blessing - 01-30-2008 05:24 PM

(Threadomancy with a point is fine. Unnecessary or incessant threadomancy is frowned upon. You won't like it when I frown. Tongue ) It's nice to see that people still appreciate Grim's hard work. Have you finished the unit yet? That'd be an awesome sight to behold... (Re-reads the previous posts and exchanges that for: WHEN will they be finished?)


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Grimstonefire - 01-30-2008 07:12 PM

Been focusing on painting my warriors & black Orcs at the moment.  Stupid I know to do a special choice before I finish my minimum core.

Once I've converted say 10 I'll start a new thread. Happy


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Hashut's Blessing - 01-31-2008 03:19 AM

Good man, good man. At least you're painting what you've got done, eh? Big Grin


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - mrmiyagi - 09-04-2009 08:06 PM

Still love this Lord.  Did you cast it btw?


RE: Chaos Dwarf Lord + Blunderbusser - Grimstonefire - 09-04-2009 08:26 PM

A true compliment that this is your first post!

I didn't cast it, and won't.  I will get round to sculpting a suitable chaos dwarf lord at some point, probably based on the pose and size of this one.
