Although far removed from the foundries and forges of their ancestral homes, the dwarves of the Hammers of Dhaz have not entirely abandoned the ancient art of runecraft. Simple glyphs and sigils of servitude are well within the ken of the exiled runesmiths, and have been used to bind the creatures of the mountains to the will of the dwarves.
Employed most frequently are the bears of the northern caves, an ancient symbol of Kislev whose stature, demeanour and tenacity resonate deeply with the dwarves. They are ridden into battle by minor nobles; who view such powerful steeds as both a symbol of the wealth and status they are unwilling to relinquish, and of course as incredible assets in combat.
Acting as a reconnaissance and rapid-response force, units of mounted thanes often patrol the perimeters of battlefields or make their way through winding canyons, launching surprise assaults on foes who might not expect such aggressive manoeuvres from a company of dwarves.
In game terms, the mounted thanes pictured above count as a unit of three bull centaurs, equipped with shields and a champion. They cost 145 points from the special allowance.
Incredible conversion. It uses the Pureblood Warpwolf, a Feralgeist model, and the head from the Extreme Feral Warpwolf.

While these Warpborn Skinwalkers have now been released in plastic, I would love to grab a metal unit at some point; I have a fondness for pewter minis from years of playing Warmachine, which was originally all pewter and has only in the last few years switched to plastic for certain units.

I continue my series of really great miniatures with Circle Orboros Warpborn Skinwalkers. This is the concept art for them.
I play Khador and Circle Orboros as my two factions in Warmachine/Hordes, so you’ll see a lot of miniatures from those lines in my Tumblr.

I’d love to pick up another unit of Warpborn Skinwalkers for my Circle Orboros army. Think big hulking half-transformed werewolves in armor, with big halberd-esque weapons.
If you feel like helping me out, why not take a look at my Etsy shop, where I sell handmade dice bags?
So I’ve gone and set up an IndieGogo campaign here. I’m calling it The People’s Constructs, because it’s a crowd-funded effort sort of thing. I’d like to acquire, with the help of generous contributors, a Woldwrath and as many Woldwardens, Woldguardians, and Woldwatchers as possible, including both prime Baldur and epic Baldur. Once everything is painted, I’d love to put everything down in a gigantic, no holds barred Unbound game, and see my opponent’s jaw hit the floor.
Interesting note: I actually wanted to set the funding at $300, but apparently IndieGogo literally won’t allow that. The minimum I could do was $500.
I plan to blog about the whole process, with tons of pictures, painting advice, tactical thoughts, etc. I wanted to do this campaign because I really want to support my local game store, and because I can’t currently afford even 1/10th of this on my own.
As perks I’m offering various dice bags and a dice bag pattern, as well as me painting you a mini.
Again, the campaign is The People’s Constructs. The crowd will get to pick the paint scheme, and I’ll be sure to put up a number of pictures of different stone types to choose from.
If anyone wants to spread the word, that would be incredible!

Shiny new! Privateer Press’s Woldwrath is out today, and he is a monster! I saw him in person last week at the game store, one of our local Circle players must have gotten a Woldwrath at GenCon. Beautiful, incredible model. You don’t realize how big they are until you see them in person.
I dearly want one. Unfortunately I can’t justify the expense right now, but I’ve been thinking that it might be fun to try crowd-funding the purchase, and get it from my friendly local game store(which is an awesome place to game). I’ve been considering doing Fiverr gigs, or even starting an IndieGoGo campaign. If I manage it, he would be The People’s Woldwrath, and I’d do a poll on what color to paint him. Also, I could do a series of blog posts on assembly, and then on games played with him.
What’s everyone think about that?
