Favorite Dwarf Mini?
Posted 26 July 2012 - 02:03 PM
I've been on a bit of a Dwarven mini buying binge lately, and am curious who is your favorite Dwarf mini? I'm working on Ursula Silverbraid at the moment, and totally love her! She was an awesome gift and sort of set this snowball in motion.. I've also been reading through Markus Heitz's Dwarves series of books which is inspiring too.
So who is your favorite Dwarf?

That being said, Werner's sculpts for the Warlord Range from Reaper have upped the ante in skill.
You want me to reduce this to just one model? That may be impossible for me.

Ursula looks like she wears duck paw boots and her axe is much too big for my taste.
I think my personal favourite one would be Gris Knotslip. I also like Durgam Deepmug and Durin.
If you like Dwarves, look at The Hobbit preview coming up next December.

By name alone? Bragg Ironballs wins, hands down.
Sculpt? That's much tougher. The Warlord dwarves, as a whole, are pretty decent. I love Skadi, but that's probably cheating, since she's not technically a dwarf, right? I really like the Valkyrie and Miner sculpts (Kragmarr and Aizen Krahl factions, respectively), and Logrim is probably the awesomest dwarf with a two-handed sword ever (yes, I said awesomest), but I think the 14515 version of the Daughter of Skadi gets my vote for favorite, because it is so dynamic.

But, I have to admit, being quite mischievous, I've painted the guy on the left a couple times in a couple different ways to freak my players out:
I have a soft spot for dwarves, so I like many sculpts from different manufacturers. But these are my favorite Reapers.

I mean, he has a MINI-GATLING GUN! All right, if we're supposed to stick to *fantasy*, it would be Warlord #14042 - Thorgram, Dwarf Warlord: http://www.reapermin.../sku-down/14042
There's just so much going on with that miniature that begs to be painted in detail!

I'm planning on getting some bear riders for my growing legion. Thorvald is very cool too in all his various incarnations. I'm also liking Herryk Aesir and Orin Ramhelm as well. Ursula's coming along :) I've also been playing around with Gwyddis Dwarf Valkyrie, I converted one of her maces to a scepter so far.

I recently got this guy. Haven't assembled him yet, but I already really like him:

Is my favorite, painting him now. I love the axe, armor and "feel" of him!
