Combat EngineersGrimstonefire 07-07-2007

Technically these are just plain CD warriors, but when GW release a new regiment they will be an elite unit.  I mainly used the Dwarf miner sprue and a few bits from the Dwarf warrior and Dwarf warmachine sprues.

From the left:
The first one I did, this one has a nifty backpack and some 'teeth pullers' for want of a better description.  i like this one, which is a good job as most will be holding their shields like this.  Because of the way the arms are stuck on it does look a little squashed on.  It will do though.  He needs an icon on his shield

The second one needs some work done on the gloves, beard, boots, shield and cloth on his shoulders.  I love the way the mask came out and will do a few more of this.

The third one... Whooee what a woman :0  The mask came out very well, and the pose is quite dramatic compared to most IMO. She needs some work done on her hair, gloves and boots.

The last one is my favourite.  He's got his mask pulled up ontop of his head, and a fairly traditional face.  On his back he's got a saw and a bomb.  Although you can't see it, his shield has got a skull with lightning coming out of the top which I'm not too happy with.

Anyway, onto the pictures...

RE: Combat EngineersKhan! 07-07-2007

These are superb, as if we should expect anything else after the lord in your profile pic.  I actually wouldn't have realized that the third one was female if you hadn't mentioned it!  I was just thinking, "hey cool dreadlocks!" until I read the post.  So yeah, 'what a woman' is right.  I particularly like all the gear that they have, and the shield-as-cog idea is working well.  

Do ye think we could get some close-ups of the individual models?

Wow, they are fantastic! I have done a few with dreadlocks as well, but none of them are female Tongue Wink And I love the idea of the pulled up mask.
Will we be able to see them painted soon? :3

RE: Combat EngineersGrimstonefire 07-08-2007

The iron bull...  Hmmm, completely forgot about that one Sad

I plan to do another 5 and then take a close up of each model.  Then I will paint all of these and the champion I did, so I'll have half a unit completely done before starting on the second half.

RE: Combat Engineerstorn 07-08-2007

i think the quality of them all is really great.

the whole mask being pulled up s really good because it ties your masked guys in with the classic big hat style, sort of like a tribute.

ot to sure if the female doesnt actually look more like a dawi predator :p

I agree with torn, I thought of predator almost right away. I hope it'll look more feminine once painted. Speaking of which, paint them!

I'm so sorry to hearSad

Has been looking for inspiration for a smaler mechanical mount for some time now - and a Iron Bull seemed perfect.
Guess it's back to the drawing board and finish up that concept for a mech dragon then.

That dwarf-face shield is the coolest shield ever.  I like the weapon, too - very interesting blade!  Well done sir.

Wow the concept behind them and the excecution is brilliant.
Great paintjob too!
Now a beard on the shieldface: that's an idea I might 'borrow' in the future Cheers!
It will be a pain to finish an entire unit of those so I hope you keep it up.
