I am thinking of starting a northern themed dwarf army and thought I would take some Dogs of War heavy cavalry in it. I plan on modeling them as dwarves riding rams, mountain goats or something like the dwarvish mounts from World of Warcraft. I want to know what people think of the idea, and what models should I use/convert.
This is one of the very disputed questions, as dwarfs would rather stand firm on the ground, or 100 meters bellow it. But as for mounts, mules or somkind of steam machine would do the trick, so would mountain goats.
My resoning was that as my army will live on icy mountain crags and ridges and dwarves aren't very agile that they would use animals that can traverse these areas easily for transportation. I thought that I might use goat like beastmen heads, warhounds or a suitably hairy animal to make the mounts and plastic dwarf and goblin bits to make the riders. Oh and LOTS of green stuff :p .
Very Insperational, I think thats what I am going to do . My brother has tons of extra boars but no riders for them so I'll use those and some dwarf bits I am going to order.
dang, that looks awesome. especially like the blue slayer-ish paint on him, very cool
Beer, Pipes, and Guns... Dwarves had the right idea.
Hey that's a mad idea - dwarven cavalry!!! Yeah I reckon mountain goats and mules would be great, but cavalry for dwarves shouldn't be that large, like horses, just medium-sized animals would be good in my opinion. Maybe Ponies??? That look pretty cool!!!
And by the way Mead, your Dwarf on boar looks hell good.
Thanks, but I didn't make it, I just posted the picture.Originally Posted by lord_renwick
I don't know where that shield is from. Using the Bearmen shield would look pretty nice though!
Speaking of dwarf cavalry, here's another take on the concept. Someone mentioned a pony rider?
Not a conversion, apparently this is an old old citadel figure, and as such is tournament legal!
A dwarf noble! we are sinking into the madness of elves!
A steambeast would make an awesome mount for a dwarf.
