You wait ages for a dwarf....

.....then two come along in quick succession. Obviously, the gyrocopter came first - it can fly! but this lone dwarf wasn't too far behind. He was discovered during a tidy up operation. I thought he was long lost so was very excited to find he had been hiding in a shoe box among some other bits. He was a bit dusty and looking a bit shabby, so he went straight into a tub for a biostrip bath, emerging an hour later as good as new.

The model is from around 1992, a Marauder dwarf with the catchy name of MM15/50. These old sculpts are really nice, they are so simple to paint and yet have bags of character. It was so quick to paint, I even had time to practise a kilt pattern. I usually paint a handful of figures together, but this time I just went with the flow and painted him alone over three sessions when I had a spare half hour or so.

And here is Tuomas with his comrades in arms. Of course there are seven of them!

Looking good. Tartan is a nightmare to paint and you have my admiration.
