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 with Crossbows

Next batch of miniatures have just arrived from John. This time, main focus has been on creating a missile choice for the dwarves - or more precise the new Ewal Dvergar with Crossbows.

This set sees a new swappable helmet system, meaning that the beards and lower face is sculpted on the main bodies, but the Sallet is a separated piece, giving me the opportunity to individualize each trooper. 


Reason for these changes are all due to the poses. Only the "marching" pose could really have used the old "separate" head system, and as I really wanted the loading and aiming pose, we had to change the head system.

Also, has each Crossbow been made all different. Not any major changes to the overall design,though - but we have added a little bolt in one of them, change the little facial detailing on the stock and done minor rework on one of the bayonets, as well. 

To give you an idea how they will look assembled, I've blue tacked them just to show some of the builds:


The amount of details one these is amazing and it especially shows on their back side where the aren't blocked by weapon and beard. I'm so impressed by their look - and look much forward putting paint on these.
