Ok, I know I said I would only post Sundays and Wednesdays, but I have a spare afternoon :) I'll try to keep to the timetable in future LOL.
Anyway, despite a busy week I have managed to paint most of the 1980's old style C16 and D3 Chaos Dwarves for my Chaos Ally Contingent. I have painted three regiments of 20 Warriors, and most importantly the two bazukas and two mortars. They were all fun to paint and full of character.
I still have 10 Crossbows, and 4 swivel guns left to do.
I also replaced the spear on the Pygmy Hero Regiment leaders with a smaller one more in keeping with the miniatures.
As ever I will try and sort out the other blogs, and tidy up this one with sub sections and links.
Painting wise, I'll finish off the Chaos Dwarves, and then continue with more Slann, although I am waiting to see what goblins are released on behalf of Kev Adams for Goblin Aid.

Chaos Dwarf Mortars
Group shot. 60 warriors and gunpowder support.
As mentioned in a previous post, I have used Vallejo German Fieldgrey WWII, for the armour, with white added for the highlights.
For the flesh tone I have used Vallejo Grey-Green, and added white again to create the highlights.
I tried to keep the paint scheme simple. Whilst wanting to give them a uniform look, I did use small amounts of colour, mainly greens and reds, to break up the block look of field grey.
On the banners and shields I went for the half black/half white scheme favoured of Chaos followers of Malal.
For two of the standards I used the old 'shield on a stick' method, in these two cases an old marauder shields and brass rod.
This standard comes from one of the old marauder Dark Elf regiment (I have never owned the regiment, just got the standard in a jumble of e-bay stuff), and has an old Blood Bowl miniature as bearer.

Three Marauder chaos dwarves.
I went for a very basic stylised face pattern for the shileds as I thought it suited followers Malal.
From left to right, Belekhost Deathbringer, Jezreel Ironhand, and Rainhard Stum.
Double handed weapons; Zelazad Hornhead, Barin Aardnose, and Scarsol Smashskull.
More double handed weapon, this time Radblast The Reaver, Grimdur Gutwrencher, and Kaaos Armahand.
