Enemies strengthen you. Allies weaken......
So I finally bit the bullet and decided to re-base my chaos dwarves to abyssal dwarves for Kings of War. I have been putting it off for a long time but I am really glad I did it. For those that don't know I made this army years ago using old citadel marauder minis and conversions with chaos warrior heads and dwarves. I have added in some Mantic and will be adding a lot more.
For the bases I used bark nuggets and a filler paste that I made from joint compound, sand and pva. I used some of the vallejo filler on the first few but switched to this for a cruder finish. I am very happy with the result. Some of the bases I ended up just incorporating some rocks as rebasing them was problematic. The gargoyles were freshly done with the tree stumps and I did not want to mess with them. I know that technically they are under the MMC but since I don't usually play in tournaments I was more concerned with the ascetics and I like the look I got out of them.
All in all without upgrades it is just shy of 3000 points.
For the Glory of Hashut!
2 troops or 1 regiment of Decimators. The insanity of these guys was I bought 10 sprues of mordheim mercenaries to get the plastic blunderbusses for these. lol
So 3 regiments and 1 troop of regular troops Hand weapon / shield. combine 2 regiments to a horde easy peasy.
Same with 2 Handed weapons
Old CD Cahracter and Brakki Braka Mantic Special Character
Couple of my favorite guys I wanted to keep out as characters. The Hatchet Warrior has been my favorite mini from this army since inception!
I use this as either a Overmaster on Dragon or a Grotesque champion
Ironcaster on Winged beast. Old Lammasu
Berzerkers. These are old glory Dwarf Monks that I think look super cool as non armored weapon swinging agents of death!
Troop and Regiment of Abyssal Halfbreeds. I originally made these with boar bodies so they were Boar Centaurs. :)
Greater and Lesser Golems and the Gargoyles
Old CD Hellcannon as a Heavy Mortar
Old Warmachines Regular Mortar and Swivel Gun Rocket Launcher
Can't wait to get them on the tabel as they have been gathering Dust for Far too long.
