    It has begun....sort of......in around 10 days time.........or there abouts.

    While we all count down to the 18th when we can start throwing paint at plastic, I am going to paint 21 Slayers as a sort of warmup.

    Tomorrow however, I will assemble the Grudgethrower and Flame Cannon I brought last week and get some "before" photos up.

    Until then, a refresher on what I have pledged and still needs painting (struck though items have been completed, obviously):

    20 Warriors w/GW and FC
    10 Quarrellers w/FC
    BSB on Oathstone
    12 Miners w/FC
    4 generic unit fillers
    1 Organ Gun
    2 Cannon
    1 Grudge Thrower
    1 Flame Cannon
    1 Runelord w/Anvil
    Dwarf Lord on Shield Bearers
    1 Master Engineer
    1 Thane on foot
    3 Slayer unit fillers
    2 Bolt Throwers
    Dwarf Blood Bowl team. (Scratch built)

    Bring on the Stunties! It's always nice to see the short ones come out to die play. :devil2:

    The Tale is Begun!

    In the words of the immortal Highlander...."It has begun!!!"

    As I have just finished painting a full unit of Longbeards and just finishing up another 21 Slayers I have decided to start with some warmachines, just to break up the monotony (plus, they're quick to paint).

    2 Cannons:

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1409.jpg

    and a Grudge Thrower:
    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1410.jpg

    I really need large chunks of this pledge painted by Mid-Sept. so I will have to pull finger if I want to field my Dwarfs at the NZ GT.

    Great to seem some stunties! My first army, and one I think I am going to collect again. If you have already painted a lot, can we see pics of them too?

    Never been a fan of stunties, but I do like the look of those cannons/crew (I have sort of a gunfetish)
    Cannot wait to see em painted up and to see the other guns and stuff.

    It's been a long time since I saw a painted dwarf army, so it'll be nice to see how yours turn out.

    ahhhh beloved stunties short and stout. They are looking great I love the idea of basing the crew on the same base as the cannon/grudgethrower. Your slayers look good too, keep up the great work.

    Thats an imposing horde of slayers you got there, Sir. The war machines look very good as well.
    I'm hoping we see everything lined up as a whole army, eventually - and especially the general.
    Keep up the good work.

    RE: Big D's Dwarfish Plog of Plogginess,17/08/10 - Small, space filling update

    Small, space filling update: Decided 2 large pillered, unit fillers was a little boring, so only did 1. I will find something else for my other unit filler.

    However, here is a pic of the 2 unit fillers I have finished:

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1435.jpg

    2 more fillers and the 20-man unit of Dwarf Warriors should be finished in the next day or so. Just need to get the bling and bases done.

    While I am finishing those, I will undercoat the next batch of models: 12 miners w/command and my BSB on Oathstone.

    Miners:

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1439.jpg

    BSB, the nut sitting next to him will become his oathstone.

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1441.jpg

    Right, now thats taken care of, time to get back to it. Until next time..

    That's some great unit filler you have there, very versatile for your Dwarfs.

    Whoops, forgot to post my latest update.....

    My warrior block is done, 20 Warriors with F/comm and Great Weapons.

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1446.jpg

    Unfortunately, the lighting is not the best, so they lose a little something.

    I have also finished 2 more unit fillers (apologies for the bad pic)

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1449.jpg

    And a picture of the warriors with thier unit filler.

    ai479.photobucket.com_albums_rr151_lord_hereticus_Dwarfs_DSCN1451.jpg

    Until next time, enjoy.

    Wow, only 2 weeks to go until Fields of Blood 2010 and my tie-breaking, Round 1 grudge match vs our very own Fodderboy. It's down to the final stretch, the army list has been submitted and the final batch of models is on the table.

    First off, the stuff I recently finished:

    12 Miners:
