New evil dwarf kickstarter by Ganesha Games.Darkmeer 09-12-2016

Ganesha Games is trying to fund their possessed evil dwarven kickstarter.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/974...-brimstone

I am on mobile and I cannot make the link, but they look cool.  They are a bit smaller than most modern Chaos Dwarves, but fit the Mm90 Sorcerer I have size wise but not in girth.

I wish them luck!  I just did a kickstarter so I'm not in a position to do another (and the minis aren't really to my taste) but I hope they find lots of backers!!

I understand entirely.  The evil dwarves are almost East Asian (almost a kabuki/japanese feel), but the Hellfire caster has some serious potential in a proper CD army.

These are some nice evil little dudes. I like them and their 2nd and 3rd edition style look.

I'm glad you like them Bloodbeard!  They are not the same as what we see now, and, being more narrow than the dwarves we have become accustomed to seeing.  The sculpts and castings are really well done, given their previous kickstarters (I backed both previous ones).

I've already jumped on this one. The caster looks pretty cool, so do the axemen and the fusilier. Maybe if possible, I'll buy additional figs to add to my burgeoning CD army.

Wonderful to hear, gsteelwraith!  I'm a backer as well.  I love the Ganesha projects and I love their little world they are making.  I have all of the minis from the other two Fantasy kicstarters.

Not sure of interest in gaming mats, but there will be a 6-foot by 4-foot gaming mat (~183 cm by ~122 cm) in a grassland motif.  I really like it, but the $70 price tag THIS month hurts.

We're under 24 hours and both of the "Dolmen" warriors (Stone ogre sized elementals) have been unlocked.  With the right paint job (a la tjub or Fuggit Khan) could make them proper magma elementals and a little GS could make the thrower a fire thrower.  These were my most anticipated (other than the Fungi) of the project.  I'm happy with what I'm seeing.  Then again, it could just be me, since I'm the last three replies on the thread.

I received my pledge today.  I'm very happy with my pledge, although the dwarves are a bit more... slim... than Games Workshop's have ever been, they will fit the need I have for them quite nicely.  More for Robu's Warband, which is slowly growing for me.  I'll try to get pictures this weekend, for comparison with my big Hats.

RE: New evil dwarf kickstarter by Ganesha Games.Darkmeer 02-11-2017

Sooo, it took an extra week.  I tried to get some photos while lying down, but that didn't work.  So, I glued them into bases (the Song of Blades and Heroes game uses 25mm round bases, in general, but you can use any size depending on your group.  So, the first photo is before I based anything, the second, of course, is after.  The quality is a bit off, mostly because I have had sick kids these past two weeks, and I have been experiencing health problems of my own.  Enough about that, on to the photos!  
Farthest left is a halfling in the first photo, but the panther bear warrior (from  a non-evil dwarf) and the evil dwarf assassin both give a good sense of scale next to the blunderbuss.


This is the better photos.  The classic sorcerer, the A&B Sorcerer, and the MM90 all give a great sense of scale.  Instead of the assassin & halfling, I chose the fusilier here, but couldn't find a well-based blunder to compare at the moment (will resolve soon!).  The RA sorcerer is a great model and shows height.  


So, onto opinion time.  I love them for the game engine they are for.  I do not like all of the models, but that was going to be the case and I knew it.  The fusilier looks great.  I really like the model, but he seems a bit tall.  As a matter of fact, all of the models in this range seem very tall and slender for dwarves.  In an army of these by themselves?  Absolutely fine.  Heck, the fusilier would probably work in a group of RA Blunders, as the height difference is not so pronounced there.  
Verdict:  
Excellent character models for skirmish (WH Skirmish, Mordheim, even Frostgrave).  
Great models for Characters, if a little simple.  They definitely feel like 3rd edition warhammer figures, with modern sculpting techniques.  The masked warriors (which I did not photograph) remind me very much of the early chaos warriors/chaos knights.
In an army:  As a leader/character model within a unit?  Maybe one or two would work.  A whole army of these would be less than believable, and they don't really fit into some of the classic armor + shield.  Maybe as berserkers?  

Model quality:  
Excellent.  Minimal mould lines, and what is there is fairly easy to clean off.  Poses are a bit static except for a few.  The separate head ones seem to be a bit more finicky, even with the static poses, but that is to be expected.
