Alternate Chaos Dwarf Models

From Chaos Dwarfs

Jump to: navigation, search

While the focus of Chaos Dwarf Online is on the Chaos Dwarfs created by Games Workshop, both their models and their background, other companies have produced miniatures of or relating to Chaos Dwarfs. These miniatures, even if of the proper scale (28mm), are not legal for Games Workshop tournaments, but many look pretty spiffy! There is a CDO thread showing the different sizes of the miniatures and a new (as of july 2014) thread, where the miniatures are positioned near a millimeter chart.


[edit] Avatars of War

Avatars of War (AoW) is a small miniatures company in Barcelona, Spain that casts 28mm "hero" models of many popular fantasy races - perhaps not coincidentally many of the same races as those in Warhammer Fantasy! They are internationally known for their extremely well-sculpted and detailed models, which they cast in the highest quality White Metal to get the best detail out of all their casts.

Among the AoW collection is the Dwarf Lord of Chaos figure (sculpted by Felix Paniagua), which bears a significant resemblance to the early Chaos Dwarf models.
