Belegar Ironhammer Painted

Now that I have painted Belegar Ironhammer, I have to say it's one of the best GW have produced. The detail on the armour and weaponry is superb. Even the back banner, which I was a little uncertain about at first, fits the model well. The beard and hair, being plastic, are lacking a little detail, but it's not overly difficult to add this with the paintbrush.  If I was going to play Warhammer Dwarfs again, I would be happy to have this model in my army.

The short, bearded ones are back on my radar. I might pick up another of the plastics if I pass by a GW shop in the next few days, the runesmith would make a good project. In the meantime, I have prepped a handful of the stout ones and will be happily slapping on the paint in the next few days, thought they are very different in style to this model.

Also in the early planning stage is a series of games pitching the dwarfs against an Empire army. Nothing too groundbreaking there you might think, but the idea is to play the game using the usual WHFB rules, then replay it with other rulesets, just as a little experiment. I am looking forward to that.

Looks great! I may have to paint this guy too. I have been bitten by the beard bug and am working on some Dwarfs as well. As usual I have dreams of an army but I have no illusions about my ability to stay focused on a project more than a couple of weeks,lol. I'm working on a unit of Longbeards, have a Gyrocopter assembled and am assembling some of the new Drake...guys. Forget the name.

Beautiful model painted beautifully. Even the new range of models is a bit pricey, the models truly are work of art.

Cheers fella

Awesome. Love the gold looks proper Dwarfy... "I need ceremonial armour what?! Fine. Make it gold but not flashy I'm no elfling!".

Very tempted by this one. Less so be the engineer I can't get past my initial first impression that the pipe is growing out of his nose...

Thanks guys, it helps that I started out with the pick of the bunch. The runelord is next on my list, but that's it I think for me. The other characters I am not so keen on, and the boxes are just too expensive or too comical, so it's a "short" diversion for me.

Nice painting. This models without that stupid banner looks so much better. Not because you painted it wrong or something. Your painting is great. I just hate how this banner looks like.
Cannot wait to see your runelord. I've already painted mine. Now I'm going for some longbeards dwarfs. I love their new shield designs.
