Bought me a box of thunderers and went into painting em... the colours will be base on the dwarf hold of Karak Azul. You don't normally see green as the main colour for a dwarf army, and I don't have a green army so I decided to go for it.

Backstory
Karak Azul (meaning Iron Peak in the language of the Dwarfs) is a Dwarf Hold primarily devoted to mining. It is here that the richest deposits of iron and many other metals and minerals in the Old World can be found. Of course, the rich metal deposits have also given rise to a large metalworking community, and several of the ancient clans claim a descent from Grungni, one of the Ancestor Gods.

Karak Azul is the southernmost hold of the Dwarfs. This is presumably due to the concentration and accumulated skill and wisdom of the city’s many weaponsmiths and craftsmen. This has made Karak Azul not only a proud southern bastion of Dwarf resolve, but also a source of much fine armour and weaponry. Many great Rune weapons are crafted there thanks to the skill of one of its most famous residents, Thorek Ironbrow, and goods are carried to the rest of the Holds through hidden mountain trails and the Underway.





Reference
For references I went towards a more jade green look for my uniform instead of the plain green / dark green. with a more muted green for any banners and shields, I wanted green as a contrast color to light brown and gold as its second colour. I took some references to keep me focus to a set of colours.

The more elite they are the less green and more gold I will put into the model

Got me some significant reinforcements this week, I bought a battalion box and a unit of warriors to boost my core collection.

Now the model count stands at
x1 thane BSB (converted)
x39 dwarf warriors with great weapons and shields
x16 thunderers (hand gunners)
x24 quarrelers/rangers (crossbowmen) two units of 12 dwarfs
x10 miners
x1 cannon


Gonna use my week off to get as much as possible done. Apart from the above I will be taking a break from buying more till I get the new army book.

Technically yes... have to say tho the batallion box was really worth it. Thing was the dwarfs were old stock and were much cheeper due to a better exchange rate n gw prices were not hiked yet, the batallion box was 310 for 32 warriors 16 thunderers/rangers and a cannon ^^

new dwarf king is strong.

I really like the new dwarf rules. Hatred against OnG and Skaven, and almost everyone. Dwarves really hold on to grudges hahaha

yeah the new dwarves rules are pretty awesome!

Ancestral Grudge - hatred Skaven/Greenskins; everyone else has a chart.
Dwarf Made - Re rolls
Resolute - +1 Strength on the charge
Relentless - no leadership for marching close to an enemy
Shieldwall - +1 parry when charged
Dwarves no longer have -1 to move when charging/fleeing.

Yeah.. read the rumors at BoLS. Hopefully it is all true.

For my Dark Elves, S7 isn't much difference then S6 since both also wound on 2+ and deny me my armour, even better coz you wouldn't be able to use your shield. But having S4 compared to your usual S3 do make quite a difference.

Yeah that is awesome. With good WS and Hatred, your Dwarf Lord almost confirmed to double his attacks each and every time.
