Got the two boxes of Dwarf Warriors from Maelstrom last week, they're already assembled and undercoated at home, and joy of joys my Dragon Princes and Chariot boxes arrived at the office this morning.
Couldnt help myself so I procrastinated a bit and put one Dragon Prince together. Luckily I had been warned that they are fiddly and only made to fit together a certain way, that and they come with detailed instructions - which is a first for any WHFB model I have put together. Overall, im pretty impressed with them and can't wait to start painting them hopefully I can get a unit completed in time for Horned Rat in July - which I am now definately able to attend.
As for the 2 boxes of Dwarf Warriors I choose to put these together weilding GW but only assembled the one Command team. Combined with the other unit of 20 GW new Dwarfs already painted this gives me 50 GW models I can put out, and which with the right unit fillers I can easily extend to units of 30+. Have decided to remodel my older Dwarf Warriors using my big bitz collection as HW/Shield Warriors giving me 60 of these.
One big plus of the new Dwarf Warrior kits is the huge number of shields they contain, 26 in each box. This means I can now completely reshield my 60 other Dwarfs. Unfortunately the shields aren't blank so I cant paint a consistent runic emblem on them but even so with the right paint scheme they should look good.
