New Dwarf Greens

Sorry for the long delay.  I am not sure where September went but here we are in October.  I just received some pictures from Whiff Waff of new dwarves.  He sculpted three packs due out soon but these will be coming out hopefully by December (depending on moldmaking schedules).  Some of these were inspired by some work and planning I have been doing for some Mighty Armies campaign books with Mike Renegar.

First, one of the dwarf armies will be led by a dwarf queen and her shield maidens.  Backing her magically will be a rune priestess.  Also with the rune priestess will be a new rune priest, to go in the generic dwarf army.

Next up are some engineers and artillery.  The engineers have open hands with a variety of tools that can be glued and and will be on sprues.

Finally, we have some new cavalry options.  The mounts are rams and they will have a mounted command as well as some mounted crossbows.  The new riders and mounts will also fit on the bears and the old dwarf cavalry will fit on the rams.

Thanks for looking!

Interesting! Will there be an option to swap the the goats for ponies?

Yes, definitely.

Great set - but the priestess looks like she is having a bad hair day!

Nice to see a small classic catapult - the last one I made wobbled too much to look real. I can see this would go with other figures - maybe an option to sell on its own and add a few loaders etc to other figures?

The rams are the pick of the set - will they be available to buy on their own? Thinking village raids and rams kept as defence like geese...

They look great. I agree with Andrew - the rams are the pick of the set. Those and the elk (shown previously) look really fantastic.
