The latest Dwarf releases from Games Workshop have been some of the most heavily promoted miniatures in years!
In fact the first 3 issues of White Dwarf have been almost entirely around these miniatures and the website is wall-to-wall Dwarves.
With the end to metal miniatures, this has been an entirely plastic release including the characters which are released as clam shell packed, single sprue minis.
The multi-part nature of them varies, but these are truly multi-part, not multi-pose that's for sure!
There is a nice addition to these new releases though - and that's the option for different characters, effectively meaning you could buy to packs and have two different looking miniatures.
For a company that held to metal for so long (longer than most of it's competition), this is a very nice way to get well moulded characters...and a few extra bitz for your bitz box!
You can see both alternate left and right arms, heads and the standard body.
The other alternate arm holds a pair of tongs with a flaming piece of metal in it... this would mean more to Dwarf players than I.
If you do want to start on the Dwarf army, give the Rune Lord a go. He's reasonably cheap and it will give you the opportunity to build the army around your commander.
Dwarves generally make lovely miniature to paint and I'm really looking forward to getting to this guy - just wondering how he would look with some Green Stuff on him and made into a Chaos Dwarf...?!
have you bought him and painted him up?
Is it value for money and how does he look in your army?
