Another stout dwarf

Buenos dias, good mornig, bonjour und guten Morgen.

I do not know if it is really time to reveal another dwarf but...... who cares?
So here we go!  :-)

This one is the missing fellow of the two dwarfs I shared with you in my last post two days ago.
He is the standardbearer of the Armed Elite of the Emperor's Dwarfs - the Bidenhänder Regiment.

Grizzled veterans of many a battle, clad in solid dwaven steel and armed with the finest weapon to cleave an orc in twain - the mighty Bidenhänder or Zweihänder - a two handed sword even larger than the dwarf wielding it!

Of my consisting factions this will be the very first to see some love in form of more troopers.

The plan is to sculpt 6 dwarfs for this unit in different poses whenever my time schedule of sculpting commissions allows in the comming months. Perhaps even a hero of sorts.

I won't be doing only dwarfs in the near future but they will surely be the main focus of my line for now.

There just can not be enough dwarfs in Lansquenet style, can there?

Enough ranting, let the pictures do the talking:

The next dwarf will be revealed in a couple of days, so don't miss to check here once in a while.

Hasta luego, cheers, salut! und bis dann,

The time is nigh...

...and I am not talking about Christmas... ^^

I am talking about the release of my own miniature line. In my last post I promised to show some of the pictures I have made for the online shop but first I would like to share with you some pictures of commissions that got released in the meantime.

Stronghold Terrain asked me to sculpt some animals for a set they wanted for their line. These were really a challenge being so very tiny but against my own assumption I enjoyed sculpting them very much.

Find them beautifully painted here.

Mantic released the Green Lady:

But now onto the promised pictures of my own miniatures.
One week ago I visited my buddy Stefan in Olfen again and finished the production of the metal miniatures.
Though my miniature line is still somewhat small with only 15 items (and 7 of those being conversion bits) I have already cast a huge amount of white metal alloy to see the first batch done.

My miniatures are produced in the "classical way", which means spin casting a white metal alloy into silicone moulds.

Here it is the dwarfs. (Of course...^^)

All of my seven moulds in one picture. The very start and core of my miniature line, hopefully soon to grow...  ;-)

In the end pictures of the first two painted miniatures of my miniature line: The "Lansquenet Dwarf Bidenhänder Champion" and the "Lansquenet Dwarf Bidenhänder Musician".

In the coming days I will reveal more pictures of the painted miniatures so stay stuned. :-)
