Those Dwarves sure are characters, aren't they??

I've had these two Dwarf characters on the painting table for some time: a battle standard bearer and a Dwarf Lord. They reminded me that I STILL dislike metal figures that require assembly; I gave up trying to keep the two tall 'feathers' on the Lord's helmet, despite trying variously superglue, two part epoxy resin, then green stuff.

I haven't bothered pinning them, damn it,.. they can just stay in my spares box. I have to say that while the Gyrocopter is a very cool model that will play an essential part in my tactical plan for this army, I'm not looking forward to the assembly ... I HATE metal figures that require assembly!!!

Anyway, rant over, so now I have a character and the BSB to go with the assembling Dwarf troops. Currently I have 20 miners on the table, with painting under way. I hope to get my first real games in over the upcoming term break.

On the creative use of junk...

In common with several billion of the planet's population, we are now in 'isolation'. There is a much nicer word in Te Reo Māor...
