You'll probably notice a complete lack of black on most of my painted stuff... because black is difficult to paint and highlight... so I tend to avoid it :) .

I am sure that there are one or two troops with black hair/equipment but generally, I try to avoid it because I don't like painting black :) .

My Dwarfs tend to have red/brown/ginger/blonde hair because I tend to treat them as Vikings and those sort of hair colours are prevalent in Norway/Denmark etc :) .

Fair enough. :)

I still love these guys. :D

Though the Commissar may have turned my head as favorite.

All painted so it's back to sculpting now :) :

I decided that I'd find a place in this army for an existing unit, also made up of my own sculpts so this small unit of Ratling Snipers will be joining my command platoon :) :

I've painted the bases so they now match those of the Squats.

Cheers :) . I've started conversion work on the heavy weapon troopers for the third platoon (ten Squats; five gunners and five loaders) but have also been a bit distracted by these guys:

These casts were sent to me by Macrocosm. They are from the ones I sculpted for the kickstarter and I have actually put a bit of paint on them (primed and I have started the black on the Commissar)... I couldn't help myself :) .
