[10/29/2007] Cotters Chaos DwarfsCotter 09-14-2007

Hi there,

I finally got some conversions to show around. As you will see, I am not that much into hats, rather helmets and chainmail-scarves. (Or whatever these things are called.)


I would be happy if some of you could give me some feedback on those.

Comments, anyone?

Look promising, however might I reccomend that rather than GSing the ends of the blunderbusses, you use the bucklers from the thunderer sprue instead, look forward to seeing more Happy.

Or if your feeling really ambitious, Xander has a video guide on making molds from green stuff.Just find a piece you really like as a blunderbuss end and mass produce!(though I'm not suggesting any kind of copyright infringements Shock)

Great looking models though, I like the chainmail masks.

Chainmail looks awesome, nice to something a bit different. I thought it would be good to carry the chainmail around to the back, like they put a hood of it on before their helms if you know what I mean? mind you it's prob' just because I don't like the little flaps at the back of the helms! just personal preference though (I don't have many good things to say about the new dwarf sprues Happy). I think the bucklers make it easier to do the blunderbuss nosle but yours look fine as they are so don't worry too much about that.
You've had a great idea here Cotter, will the other warriors be the same? looking forward to the rest of army! Cheers!

RE: [09/14/2007] Cotters Chaos DwarfsCotter 09-14-2007

Thanks for the tip with the bucklers. Ill be looking around if I find someone who is not using his. But for know, I have run out of musketeers to convert anyway.

So, next on this blog will be Cotters Chaos Dwarf Warriors. And yes, I am planning to carry on with the chainmail-mask on those, too. I hope with a bit of practice, I will be able to get the boundaries of the chainmail looking a bit better, as I am not yet really satisfied with them. Especially the transition from mask to beard is a bit critical.

I will try the "chain-hood-on-the-back" idea with some of the little buggers and post some pics here,


Thanks so far, always open for more ideas,

I agree with all above that the chainmail is a cool idea, and actually I think you've done a fantastic job with the gs blunderbuss barrels.  However, as Xander is fond of saying, you may want to try using a little bit less green stuff, that may help with delineating boundaries too (especially if you do one section at a time, and wait for it to dry before adding another).  I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Hi everyone,

I managed to get some more evil stunties done. Have a look, and feel free to comment!

I have tried to pay attention to some of your comments, and I guess these guys are quite a bit better than the first lot.

And here some pics of mydynamic duo:

The firemage/slayer. Looks a bit more like some weird prophet of the wilderness, but anyhow:

   
   


and the hero. Just a quite basic conversion to have the model matched with the warriors' style. Any suggestions for a little more chaos-dwarf-ish details?

You have some very cool conversions!
There is a big improvment in the scale mail armour, I'm really liking the chainmail face guards!
More good work Cotter Cheers!

Thanks a lot, guys.

Im quite buisy working at the moment, but Ill try to do a bit of painting this coming weekend. So, expect some pictures on sunday or monday!


Also, I am thinking of including some Ogre Ironguts into the army. Basically as substitutes for bull-centaurs, because I somehow dont like them. Cant really pin down why though....
I was thinking about chainmail-hoods and dreadlock-beards for the big guys, too. Not to much armour, because I really like their "Im a big fat greasy ogre"-style.

Looking good man!  I'd try to round out the beards a bit more with a horizontal indent:
