Defenders of a Lost Empire

The first regiment for my Oldhammer Imperial Dwarfs is finished. Prince Ulther’s Dragon Company is going to form the backbone of my small force, with a unit of crossbowmen, a throng of warriors and a battery of war machines to follow.

In addition to the regular warriors making up the company, I’ve included a sculpt from Citadel’s Dwarf range that’s very much in the same style and aiming his pistol, ready to fire off a shot. Clearly, he’s not entirely confident in blackpowder technology yet.

    • Thanks, glad you’re enjoying them. After they were finished I wanted to move on to another project, but the look of them ranked up on the battlefield motivated me to add the pistoleer and make a start on the flame cannon next.

    • Thank you! I’m thinking of grouping the army into different contingents, so the colours and emblem of the Dragon Company will be repeated on the flame cannon to tie them together in terms of background.

    • Cheers, though I can’t claim any originality, since I followed the colour scheme of the originals from their box set! The warriors for the army I’ll probably paint in more muted tones, so these guys will stick out as the rather flashy elite unit.
