@ Bassman - while there is some softness to the armor edges, its also largely exaggerated by the big zoom factor of photography. The edges are sharper and cleaner on the actual model.

@Da Crusha - yes ranking is tight, very tight - almost like a near impenatratable wall of iron clad chaos dwarfs, the movable wall.

@Allanp & Braki - absolute stocky blocky massively thick chaos dwarf bodies. the way i remember dwarfs being, short, stout, meaty. The new dwarfs just seem to be to slim and frail looking to me. Although there are some awesome conversions and inspiration here on the site so not a total loss.

On to a brief update:

I decided to start working on some the dwarf bodies to make a more chaos dwarf style, began by cutting/shaving out the chainmail on the dwarf thunderer bodies. Then proceded to gs and sculpt up some diamond scale...


the next day i found this thread for a different diamond mail variation:
http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showth...hp?tid=606
so off to find a tool i went and still havent returned to re-armoring the dwarfs.

BlunderB's, didnt have any blunderb's just yet, thus the mutation of chaos marauders was in order. I havent hit them gs just yet, but have them ranked up so i can make sure they fit with some semblence of what i want to accomplish. Still plan on tight heavy beardage, custom blunderb's and scaled cloaks. Heads will prolly end up being a combination of styles til i find something i like:



additionally making progress on the Bull Centaur for the Golden Hat... hopefully i can stay up on it so i can make a contribution to the competition.

stoke the fires, smelt the iron.. keep those hammers moving...

Yes, you're right about scales sharpness. Do you know why I agree with you now? Because I copyed your scales and noticed that in real dimension you do not see the "softness" Takes Hat off
Insteresting concept for blunderbusses, I'm longing to see what you are going to do with them....

Good find the tutorial, I'm going to write to some of the mods to create a section for the best ideas/tutorial ever in way to help people like us. Happy

Just saw this.  Could you do a scale shot of your blunderbussers next to a regular dwarf?

The warriors came out really well considering how bulky the models are.   The weapon you gave the front guy is very interesting.  It's a very unusual design, I'd love to see the whole unit armed with weapons like these (bit of variety here and there of course).

The shields could be a problem for ranking, but I had an idea about this.  If you clip off the top and bottom of them to make a square, then cut some V out top and bottom they would like nice and brutal.  File the front flat and stick a skull transfer on there (not something you see very often with CD shields.  Job done.

as the furnaces begin to warm and the drum of hammers pings in the glowing darkness...

the blunderbussers were repurposed but were in need of a redesign - they varied in size from taller than the old metal "dwarfs" as well as taller than the 80's dwarfs I would still like to procure, to about old dwarf size. They were taller than the new plastic dwarf which I was not pleased with.

the bulk of my revised "quick" blunder b's are comprised of counts as models using the old 80s chaos dwarf bazooka and loader. Have about 40 of those at the moment so considerations have moved on to other units with some conformity to the tome of Tarmurkhan.

I have not given up on the marauders just yet... others things call to be created, melded from the molten heart of our lands.

Special considerations to an Apocalypstian Emissary are in the works for late considerations in the 2014 Emissary Exchange. Hopefully the application is accepted... in time to hitch to the precious cargo to the slave trains.

Hmm, an old thread I hadn't seen before (afaik).

Shame you ditched the Marauder conversions - they look promising.

Love that you just cut down chaos warriors. Could you perhaps give a side shot of one?
