Last batch of 4th Edition Warhammer Chaos Dwarfs (for now).

This is the last update of my on/off 4th Edition Chaos Dwarf army project for a while. I have lots more to paint, but for the time being I would like to re-orientate my focus back to my 3rd Edition Warhammer Fantasy armies. I am currently undertaking a sort of stock take of my 3rd Edition armies, which entails sorting out all of the miniatures into their respective and prospective 3,000 point armies, as well filling in any gaps and adding those one or two miniatures to an army which I have always wanted to buy. This is a very large task, something I have been doing in the background for the last few years, but only now am I starting to near completion.

...and there will be goblins. Lots and lots of goblins. :)

Returning to the Chaos Dwarfs, I have painted a few more Blunderbuss fellows, as well as a most of their Command Miniatures. In addition I have also painted a Lord miniature. All of these are in the continuing industrial wasteland colour scheme which  I have chosen. I also had fun converting up a musician miniature. As noted, these are the last for a while, and I am nearing the completion of the third and final blunderbuss regiment, with only a few more left to paint. This will give me a nice group of three regiments of 20 Blunderbuss armed Chaos Dwarfs, including command miniatures.

Enjoy :)

Chaos Dwarf Lord.
I do need to think of a suitable name for him. I have added an old Marauder miniatures shield to give the idea of a Daemon shield. I haven't added the back banner poles as I don't intend using them for any of the Lords. I painted him with a coloured beard, which I will do for all the Lords/Mages (different colours for each one). I think it looks a little like an octopus, or Davy Jones from the Pirates of the Caribbean films.
Side view, showing the shield.
Standard bearers.
I have converted the middle one, as the banner pole had snapped off, to have him resting his banner upon an Orc skull. At some point I will add actual banners to the poles. The banner poles and axe shafts add a little colour to the more mutated and drab paint scheme.
Officer and converted/repaired plastic axeman.
The mace head is an old plastic GW one from the 1990's.
More Blunderbuss-ers. 
The first regiment of Blunderbuss.
The second regiment of Blunderbuss.
The third regiment of Blunderbuss, still a WIP.
All three together.
Converted gong playing musician.
I converted him from an old Chaos Dwarf Blood Bowl miniature, and a gong and hand set from the 1990's plastic Goblin Regiment box set.

Next update will probably be a Goblin. :)


  1. Love these figures and you've done an awesome job of painting them!

    1. Thank you Dave. They will be the last for a while as I am going to focus more on my old 3rd Edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle Armies.
