Or before the elves...

Over the holiday, I picked up some dwarfs to add to my small force.

5 ironbreakers and 5 irondrakes. I put them together last night.



This weekend I hope to assemble the gyrocopter/submarine...

Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his life's blood on my blade

Ah, submariner dwarfs. Threw me for a second on why you'd collect them for your aquatic army but that makes perfect sense. :smile2:

@Rowsdower, Good luck on finishing your imperial pirates! Certainly sounds like you put alot of care into it by filtering out most of the armored bits for sheer visual effect.

Get some Long Drong Slayers. They're more than perfect for your army (and gorgeous models too!) :smile2:

The elementals look pretty good bug I love those dwarfs. The white dwarf model is looking snazzy.

Thanks! It cost a pretty penny, but it fit with the theme so well that I had to...

I finished painting up some tents from Renedra. I like how they turned out. I am really impressed with the quality of the models!

Each one is a little shorter than an Imperial soldier. Pretty good scale.

They do look good. They look like a good scale. Get a couple of them together and make a small camp.

Indeed. The set comes with a little campfire and a couple of cots. I paid about $12 for them, and I am really impressed with how sturdy they are.

This guy is the penultimate model in my Araby warband. It includes a character model for each core class in the new D&D 5th edition player's handbook. It would also make a great group of themed heroes for Aos or Warhammer. After him, only the warlock is left.

I love that old school mage. Generally older Empire Wizards are much better looking, then the new ones. :blush:

I added a few more underwater models today; a giant shark and a giant octopus.

I cut some planking (popsicle sticks) last night to cover the foredeck.

Thanks, all. I'm in the process of priming this ship and one other, but I took a few moments to paint up this guy (for all the Spelljammer fans out there):

I finally finished painting up this longboat from Games of War. Turns out it's just the right size for my Dwarf Slayer Pirates.

I also finished painting the submarine!



Just kidding. But I have made a topwater marker for it, along with a torpedo to fire at ships.
