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.

One step closer - wave 3

Yesterday, master casts finally arrived from the UK. They all look real great, but rather than just tell about let me show you:

First, all the new pieces done by John Pickford and we'll start with the new set of Ewal Dvergar, Core Warriors with guns.

This set will replace the current Grenadiers, and the new set will be a set of 8 miniatures - 2 of each of the following poses:

EDC-04 Core Warriors with guns
Gunner 1 (single piece sculpt)
To make up for the fixed head - they will come with the choice of 3 different visors

The next 3 have separate sallets/helmets (just like the crossbowmen) - but for the purpose of photographing, each one is represented with a helmet.

Gunner 2

Gunner 3

Gunner 4

And here are the 8 sallets that will be added to the new set:

The 8 different heads for the Ewal Dvergar with guns 


Add-on Helmets
Some will remember that 12 heads were made. The following 4 heads will go into a separate add-on head set - and will make great characters for both gunners and crossbowmen.


Helmet add-on set

Next on is the alternative drummer. Will also be moulded with the choice of 2 different visors.

EDC-11 Drummer #2


2 different visors (Visors can also be used with the Gunner 1)

The Son's of Siegward

The last 3 are the awesome Son's of Siegward - all sculped by Sjoerd Trouwee.


SOS-01 Grinner Dragarm


SOS-02 Sanqis Bigleap


SOS-03 Branding Hyld

Now, they just need a bit of cleaning and I have to look at the mould layouts and then they are going back for the next step - production moulding.

So another 4-6 weeks, and they will finally be ready. Till then, I should really start looking into having some of the last few masters painted....?
