Chaos Dwarf Lord + BlunderbusserGrimstonefire 06-29-2007

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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 + Blunderbusserminty 08-24-2007

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.
