Wierdo Beardos In the Lead

Ral Partha Europe's Blighthaven line includes a dwarf pack with ten miniatures, of which I've painted all ten, and here's the first nine of them.  One went AWOL.  Dwarves do that.  Let's just say that I'm keeping one in my pocket as a Castle Meatgrinder surprise for the players.

Once again, I've painted these bad boys in matching colors for skirmish purposes.  For the record, these are the school colors for my son's high school.  It's a great combination that's distinctive, bright, and cheery - just like these dwarves.  There's an in-game reason for it, too.  Gimme a minute and I'll think of something.  Probably something about all coming from the same dwarf nation.

Here's a close-up shot of the shields for these little dudes.  Anvil, pattern, face, axe, and forge fire, just in case it isn't obvious.


  1. Nice paint up, following your blog here has inspired me to get back into fantasy gaming, not I just have to convince my wife that I need to buy more figures, your posts are inspiring but it's getting me in trouble!

  2. Peer pressure is a hell of a thing, ain't it? Just to make it harder to resist, $20 will get you a matched pair from Ral Partha Europe or

  3. No you don't understand I WANT THEM ALL! Battle Valor and Splinterlight both have townfolk that one can have for NPCs

  4. Yeah, those Battle Valor figures look pretty good. The few I've seen painted make my finders itch to get my hands on some. Just need to clear out a few more factions from the lead pile. Maybe for Christmas.
