So, I've just finished building my first 1000 points of Dwarfs (with the exception of heroes cos I aint got 'em yet). Here's a few pics.

Ironclad Regiment


Ironwatch Troop


Shieldbreakers Regiment


I've got the day off work tomorrow so I'll make a start on painting them and post more pics.  Grin

Ooooh they look good. Stop tempting me with another army!

I do like having days off to paint. It doesn't happen enough for my liking. I think you should post progress reports and pictures throughout the day Smiley

I agree wholeheartedly Matt. I think since you asked so nicely, I will post updates throughout the day. The only problem is, my new patio furniture arrived today and I'll have to build that at some point  Angry

Looking good so far.

Good luck with the furniture too.  I seem to be losing all my painting time to building flatpack furniture myself...

So, today didn't go exactly according to plan (it never bloody does). I did make a start on my first troop of Ironwatch though



and a close up of the unit champion



Just waiting for the devlan mud to dry and then I can get on with highlighting. These WILL be finished tonight and I'll update when they are.

What did Robert Burns say about the best laid plans? I'm beginning to think he was right. As I'm sure you guessed, I didn't manage to finish the troop of Ironwatch last night (bloody Apprentice). They have progressed slightly today with a bit of highlighting and a start on the faces and beards but nothing really pic worthy yet as I spent most of the day in bed with the worst case of man flu ever (I think it may even be terminal). Normal service will resume as soon as I recover though.

Sometimes these things happen! At least you started though... I've got a pile of zombies staring at me accusingly awaiting paint...

Well, Man Flu didn't prove to be terminal and I have finished my first troop of Ironwatch!!



I am happy to consider these done for the time being as I will do all of the bases at the end. Next on the desk are a regiment of Ironclads and an Organ Gun. Day off work tomorrow so plan for painting day mkII is nearly underway  Roll Eyes
