I like that!  Kinda falls between Warhammer and LotR imagery or themes, if that makes sense.  No bad thing, IMO.

Great, clean armour and weapons.  The cloak ain't bad either.  Although - it's maybe a style thing, but - the limbs seem a little thin under the armour, to my eyes.

Nice, very clean edges on the armour, i've just got myself some Brown stuff to try and get better edges on my stuff, must try that one day...

I agree with vermis, i'd stick a bit extra on the arms, but otherwise I really like the sense of movement he has to him.

Cheers fellas.

yep both the arms and legs need a bit of beefing, which I fully intend to do, especially the arms. I always planned him to have chunky Vambraces. Scheduled em in for 2016 I think!

There's a lovely sense of motion in him - that's tough to achieve and you've done it well.
Is he meant to be human? If so his legs are a bit stumpy.
The armour is very nice and I also like the bull head belt buckle!
Look forward to updates.

He's my vision of a chaos dwarf, stands about 20mm I think, he's heroic scale!
I hate the spherical dwarf archetype so I went a bit closer to the LOTR or Kev White style of dwarf. Tried to keep some of the eastern/persian vibe that the GW CD's had without the giant hats and beard dreads!

For a Dwarf I reckon he's the Duck's Nuts.
Perfect then  ;)
