Lots of 80's metal goodies today! I just finished painting up 3 groups of dwarfs from these ranges: Citadel Lord of the Rings dwarves, Citadel dwarf fighters/adventurers, and Marauder Slayers. I really enjoyed painting these retro stunties.
I use this site to find out what Im looking/hunting for:
Its probably best to go through the catalogues by year here:
And boy, I gotta tell ya, there are a lot more Oldhammer miniatures than I remember. Add in the fact that Im also collecting newer companies that have that retro feel. Meaning...? This blog will be around for quite a while. There will be dwarves a-plenty around every corner to rustle up, paint, and send into the Moria Reclamation Project! Sigh, and then at some point, theres a whole mineful of Orcs to get to...
Onwards to pics and descriptions...
Interesting, that the Alternative Armies dwarf matches well with Oldhammer. Which means the tunnel fighters are back to being Dwarves after all! Congrats lil fellas, you have graduated to full time Dwarf status. Now, as for those old school Ral Partha's.... well... you will see in a post or two.
So what next? We still have to resolve the Beer Cart adventure, dont we? and we will do so... in style!
Until next post, this is Mar signing off.
