    Looks good. Some nice clean crisp colours and a good special feature. I look forward to seeing more of this.

    here is my 2nd round models, a lord a cannon and a battle standard.

    dwarf lord
    http://decado-mine.deviantart.com/art/dwarf-lord-129774108

    battle standard bearer
    http://decado-mine.deviantart.com/art/dwarf-battle-standard-129774346

    and the cannon and crew

    http://decado-mine.deviantart.com/art/dwarf-cannon-129774565

    im happy with the turn out of the models the lord is a conversion as is the battle standard, the cannon is from the skull pass set so it really did need the sprucing up hence the diorama.

    the ony thing that i think lets them down is the free hand work on the battle standard, but all this means is that ive got to practice it more.

    i'm still working on the second special feature, though im in two minds on whether to scrap what i've done and start afresh, (horrid cutting mistake).

    well i scrapped the original spec feature twas going to be a dwarf statue, but i cocked it up so i went for the other idea that i had.

    and here it is, the dwarf tomb.

    up close view of top
    http://decado-mine.deviantart.com/art/dwarf-tomb-top-up-close-130699255

    all of the runes were cut from either shields from the thunderer box set or from unused standards from the box sets and 2 grudge pony carts.

    the head on the sarcophagus top is another standard piece i just cut it down the back with the jewelers saw and viola a nice statuesque piece

    Looks great! I love the BSB, that is an epic banner, and the lord conversion is tops. I like the tomb idea, thouht it is a little "Balin's tomb" for my tastes.

    That tomb looks awesome! Rep coming up!

    On the army, I think the colours look quite flat. I think you need more highlighting or shading for them to really pop. The cannon crew looks better though. Of course, you decide what level you're happy with.
    I don't recognize the command group models of the first warrior regiment, are they from the
    black reach set or from somewhere else?

    theyre from the black reach set the unit champion is the thane model that comes in the set.

    well the reason for the tomb being the way it is rather than the grandiose celebration of the hero in question, is that the mod of the group doesn't want large features that could affect the mechanics of the game too much. so from now on no features taller than 3'' unless theyre really thin (high elf pinicle in e.g.) and as dwarfs DON'T do small, i had to swap it for something else.
