This blog is about my private venture into having Mr. John (Poshgoblin) Pickford doing me a small range of 28mm dwarf miniatures that will fulfill my personal need for more dark, sinister and vicious dwarfs.

Ewal Dvergar Support Command

Also like to share another couple of miniatures John did for this 3th wave.

For a long time, I have been wanting John to do me some supports, so I can field a proper command groups for the infantry.
Long time ago I tried to do a standard bearer, myself. And not that I ain't pleased with it, and that I'm not proud of having him released by awesome Four A Miniatures - no, it's just that I have always felt, that John could have done so much better - and that I wouldn't ever succeed doing a musician, that would match my impressions of a such, Better leave that to those, that actually know what they are doing :)

So, in the brief for this 3th wave of miniatures, the job was clear: "do me a musician and a banner bearer, the Ewal Dvergar worthy". And I wasn't let down - no, not at all (not that I actually thought there would be a chance of failure). Cause, look what John did......

Ewal Dvergr Standard Bearer



Eval Dvergr Musician


I'm so impressed by their look and they exceeds my greatest expectations. And again, look at the level of details here - it's unbelievable ....

And that's not it, cause there have actually been two more standard poles made.




These two are not themed like the wolf plet one is. They are more generic and can actually be used with most pole-armed troopers from core set #1 and #2.

  1. I love the fur pelt one....perfect! The others have some of Johns fantastic face icons but that pelt one with the pelt wearing standard bearer is the Shit! (Apparently that's a good thing now...?)

  2. OooOOoOoo! Nice! Command models have always been hard to come by for these boys, especially musicians. Super good job. I feel like I'm constantly badgering you, but if there are extra casts...

  3. I will buy those as fast as you let me! Especially Furry Pelt!

    I also have your Four A Standard Bearer, and he is working well with the Ewal Dvergar Grenadiers now that he has a WFB Empire rifle strapped to his back (and a 1990s metal Mounted Chaos Warriors shield attached to the standard pole).

    Yes, my army is of Chaos Squats of the Grim Dark Warhammer 40K Future. But all squadrons get Standard Bearers. And mascots (sometimes more than one). And a corpse model (sometimes more than one). And a little tombstone with the squad name on it.
