Whats better than a ninja?Bloodfire 09-15-2009

A Chaos Ninja Dwarf!

Hey guys, I managed to get into gear and decided to get around sorting out my army. Having a brisk look through old model catalogues were I came across the Chaos Ninja Zombie Dwarf. I found the concept so funny that I decided to make a bunch of Chaos Ninja Dwarfs Big Grin

Here is the first ninja of the thread







The legs and arms are from the Skaven sprue from Mordhiem, the head and body are from an Empire Militiaman whilst the hat was from a Dwarf Thunderer Buckler

So what do you guys think? Takes Hat off

RE: Whats better than a ninja?RoguePanda 09-15-2009

>chuckles< now that dear sir is simply inspirational! Chaos Dwarf Ninja's sounds like something that could be taken far if you have a whole unit of them - how do you plan to represent them on the battlefield though rules wise? I particularly like the hat, it really brings the conversion out and makes it clear that this is not your normal Dawi Zharr!

However, for myself I would have to say that pirates may just JUST be better than ninja's for one reason - I have NEVER heard of a ninja with a beer barrel... Shock What more can I say? Cheers!

Top stuff - keep it up

Thanks Big Grin

Im planning of having a reasonable sized unit of these (possibly about 12-15 with full command). As for the rules, Im planning on using them as an unit of standard Chaos Dwarf Warriors, within my normal dwarf army however, i'll treat them as either miners or as rangers.

RE: Whats better than a ninja?RoguePanda 09-15-2009

Well Baggronor you may be right - perhaps we can design a sort of hybrid thing with the stealthy characterstics and smooth movement of a ninja with the swagger and flamboyance of a pirate - we could call them "Plinja's" Happy

Sorry, too much caffeine gives this Panda strange ideas - and I have just noticed Hellfire's signature >gulps<  perhaps I should invest in some armour for this forum Happy

Joking mate seriously nice stuff - would you be thinking of greenstuffing some cloth masks over the mouths of some of them as well? That might emphasise the sneaky nature of these little marauders. if you felt really adventureous, the standard bearer could in fact not be a standard at all - but one dwarf at the base of a tree of obelisk of rock, and another dwarf with a runestone or something hanging onto climbing claws halfway up the side! After all, Ninja's climb lots of things right?

A ninja that's also a doctor?

Cool idea, and a nice conversion. It's a shame Sneaky Gitz don't have Dwarf-like profiles.

And judging by the signature, someone's a Ross Noble fan.

That's a clever conversion.  The Skaven arms look surprisingly good, and the greenstuffing work is nice as well.

I'm totally shocked that it looks so good. I've never considered a Dwarf head on that manky Skaven body... curly hair looks great too!

Give him a bit of a bodysuit though. Getting rid of the fur on the hands, and adding other details that would make him look a little less like his original model.

Great conversion, look forward to seeing a unit!

Pirates are better than ninja's - everybody knows that Pirate

Nice conversion - would be interesting to see what a unit of them looked like.

RE: Whats better than a ninja?Bloodfire 10-11-2009

Hey guys, haven't posted any pictures for a bit, been busy looking for work.
So here is the second of the Chaos Ninja Dwarfs... as some beliefs go, ninjas are masters of stealth, able to blend with the environment...

Conviently, this Chaos Dwarf was infiltrating a tavern..




Thanks to RoguePanda for giving me the idea of a 'ninja with a barrel'
Also coming soon..

RE: Whats better than a ninja?RoguePanda 10-12-2009

Shock

There.... there is a ninja with a beer barrel! >drops his own tankard in amazement<

You have just done the impossible by combining Ninja's with beer... seriously, I looked at that, pondered for a moment, and fell about laughing for ages! That stuff is just great!

Those other in-progress ninja's are looking good too - I can't quite see what's on their backs, but I am wondering if they are some kind of steam powered grappling line backpacks? Or mechanical smoke machines for a quick getaway?

Regardless, I am going to be keeping an eye out for more gems from you Bloodfire - your stuff is top quality

Thanks for that Big Grin

Yeah the things on the backs of the in progress ninjas are actually where the quivers were from the oringinal models, but i am planning of tidying them up with items such as grapling hooks and pouches
