Chances are, if you can think of it, I've got it planned already. This will be a laaaaarge range. :biggriin:

Two-headed pole-dancing dwarf zombie strippers?

That's right -- I didn't think so.  :closed-eyes:

well... a two-headed dwarf carrying poles (maybe for dacing) HAVE been made...: http://www.bederken.com/shop.htm
The Dwarven standard bearer.. He COULD pass as a pole dancer, except for the many clothes....

Thanks for posting the comparison to the Marauder dwarfs. Seems to fit nicely!

So count me in when they go up for sale!  :smile2:

/Rob

EDIT: Btw, WK you don't happen to have multiples of the marauder drummer dwarf? I seem to have all the other models in that range but I'm strangely lacking that one...

The next few greens (browns) have arrived. There are 4 heads (+1 feather), 2 rider bodies and 2 ponies. More rider and pony variants will be added after this initial set  has been moulded. They are loosely based on historical reiters, with a more spanish twist added. The unreleased marauder general on pony also influenced the design of the ponies.



Some assembled pictures. Note that these are just tacked on and therefore don't show the most optimal fit. This also applies to the feather which is separate from the helmet.





A closer look at the heads.

Wonderful .........

 ......... however I could give you a much better first hand opinion if I was able to view them close-up.
Just send me a set for review and get the Chancellor's approval, and maybe a discount on the advertising and sales tax.

Other than the goofy grin on the guy in the lower left, they look great! Really sticking with the oldschool feel!

He just likes to laugh in the face of danger.

No worries if you don't like him, there will be more head variants (including several more morions) AND most of the heads from the infantry fit too with the exception of those that have the longest beards.

Just a quicky to show that they also work with the earlier heads:


And that it works both ways...  :happy:

Oh the "second way" looks great - especially as the old Marauder ones have only got one model with a  helmet.

I'm liking these. Roughly how much are they going to be? Some could make it into my DoW army.

I really can't put any prices on them yet, as I'll have to take into account how much the moulding and casting will be, but I will aim to keep prices low.

Very nice. I wanted dwarf cavalry ages ago and couldn't find any nice ones.
Hey, I could still beat up a woman!

Lovely minis WK, keep up the good work.

For the smiling head I am not so sure where the helmet stops and where the eyebrows starts... might be the picture. If you want a very gritty look, you could make him a twisted smile   :dry:

Cheers

I love the morion heads on the infantry...they look AWESOME...and the shaggy ponies are bad ass!  Man I need to finish selling the rest of my other old stuff so I have money for these when they are ready!

Keep up the good work WK

you can sign me up for a unit of infantry 30 strong for my DOW army.
There are 40 different shades of black, so many fortresses and ways to attack.

So why you complaining!

Fantastic work  - what sort of time scales are you working towards to get them released?
Cheer up, could be worse.

I don't dare to advance any specific timeline as too many elements are not under my control. But hopefully somewhere in the first months of the new year.
