Dirken Thorn is born!

Well I feel very lucky to have my very own Dwarf now produced by Avatars of War!  The late great legend Wayne England took my humble drawings and produced a Dwarf worthy of Felix Paniagua's  sculpting.  Lucky indeed.

Avatars of War scuplt

Felix over at Avatars of War is doing a sculpt for me for supporting the Dwarf fundraiser campaign.  Here's a couple of the first sketches I received.  A few changes are being made and then the sculpting begins!  The drawings were done by Wayne England by the way!

Sometimes you get the perfect light...

It's hard to take a 'great' photo.  I use numerous lights from crazy angles and 9 times out of 10 still don't get the results I want.  Sometimes you get the perfect light shining in from outside your window, that mix of sun with a light cloud filter, and you have to rush for your camera and your miniatures as fast as you can.

I had a few minutes of great light today and took some action shots of a few minis.  The images in the older White Dwarfs always captured the miniatures so well and made you feel like they were alive.  Here's a few action shots I took, by no means WD worthy, but I hope I brought some life to them.

Marauder Giant - Every Dwarf Army Should Have One!

    In my personal opinion this guy belongs in a Dwarf Army.  The question is whether he stole the barrel of Bugman's, was given it as payment to fight or  needs a little liquid courage to stand next to a bunch of crazed Giant Slayers haha.

I have always loved this model.  When I was a kid I saved up my money and bought it from a little shop, hidden in the market, in Inverness, Scotland.  It's amazing the sheer size of this model and the weight of all that beautiful metal.

I never got round to painting him when I was younger, although I did use him in a couple of rough rules battles (excellent for knocking down castle gates made of books and paint pots).  I decided to throw some color on him and see if I could bring him to life.

Working on my Clansmen for the painting competition @ www.bugmansbrewery.com

Stay tuned!

Edit: Only got the 10 completed for the comp but looks like a 2nd place behind the magnificent slayer unit from Jaekel.

The Host of Dirken Thorn

I wanted to take pictures of my lead for insurance purposes (in case they go down fighting in a fiery blaze) but instead I took a quick video and threw in some LOTR music ha.  This is most of my GW lead except for about another 100 minis that need stripping.  I didn't include my hoard of Ratnik, BTD and WhiteKnight Dwarves.
