I finished my first lot of 28mm dwarves for a HoTT army. My goal was to do this army using bits and pieces I could find for cheap. As it happens, I ended up with a group of dwarves and other dwarf-compatible figures through an eBay lot. I finished 8-bases today:
The front row are four bases of blades. I have another four bases of spear currently on the workbench. These were sold to me as being part of the old Battle Master game but clearly are not. The command figures (below, left) I know are GW (got them in a trade) and the other mono-pose axe-men (below, right) look like old GW. The plastic is hard but will not activate with regular aircraft glue. Weird and a pain in the butt to get the shields on. Eventually I used Future to stick them down and reinforce them.
In the lots were also three wolf-riders from Battle Master (sans riders) this these were converted to beasts. I was thinking about a Scandinavian theme for these dwarves and "good" wolves feature in some of these stories so there they are.
These horsemen are supposed to be Empire knights (again from Battle Master) but are a bit small these days for 28s. But they look like dwarves so my dwarves will have lots of damned heavy cavalry. I have another three or four bases of these to do. These fellows had two broken lances so I added on some axes and the banner is tin foil.
There are two of these heroes that are identical with the heavier barded horses. These are lovely three-piece kits--again from Battle Master.
Finally we have a generic HoTT stronghold (the tower from Battle Master).
The remainder of the army includes a cannon, some crossbow shooters, spear men and cavalry.
Up next: Well, I unexpectedly sold my skeleton HoTT army yesterday and am finishing up one piece to go with it. I have enough to build a second one in the basement so that project will come to the front burner. I might build hordes in lieu of blades this time. I also have 24 15mm AWI guys finished and drying. They need a dip then basing. There are more of these to go. And I have a job lot of elves on the way. And there is a goblin army from Battle Master awaiting attention too.
