Runesmith and Runelord
So, due to me having to save money for a whole bunch of reasons I am not buying anything new. With this in mind I am going through my collection of unpainted stuff trying to think of what next - I do have some ork stuff but there is one thing in mind that came about from this thread Kev's Dwarfs
Well, what have I done now? I realise that in this climate of 8th edition, dwarf lords are really not that good. Very expensive and easily avoided. And more than ever anti-magic is a dwarf's best friend. So, welcome the two new additions too my army; a runesmith and runelord! I am not sure about the runelord part, but I do need one of them in my army. I can't come up with a decent version of the anvil yet so the runelord on his own will be enough.
This one is converted from the metal longbeard standard bearer. I liked his look and figured he could do quite well as a runesmith.
This guy is based off of the Mordheim noble model, and I found that the hammer looked really like a runelord would have it. The staff will have some rune or something suitable painted on it.
