Welcome one and all to my painting blog, which has now evolved from being an experimental thread on getting converting Fyreslayers into Fantasy Slayers into a fully-fledged blog. I'm including a contents section on this post to give you some idea of where everything is.

However, GW had released the Fyreslayers, including the first ever monster for a Dwarf faction, the Magmadroth! While I couldn't get away with using a Magmadroth in 8th Edition (especially at an unbelievable price of £60), I had a look at the bog-standard Vulkite Berzerker box, as they were the closest thing to the original slayers I could find. The first thing about having a look in the box is how massive the AoS bases are for them - they are far too big for Dwarfs. They're fine for things like Saurus and Chaos Warriors, and are probably the round equivalent of their original fantasy bases, but are far too big for Dwarfs - regular 40K bases would have been much better. Anyway, I had been keeping back a collection of 10 20mm x 20mm square bases to use specifically for these Fyreslayers to make a fantasy unit, and after building them and putting them together, they fit quite nicely together as a unit. As soon as I have time to take a picture I will post it online. I especially like the dynamic element of the new slayer minis because Slayers are more killy and less defence-oriented - you wouldn't see slayers standing firm in a shieldwall like the other Dwarfs, they would all be hurling themselves forward ready to lop off heads and slay the biggest things they can find, and the AoS set certainly captures this. The box comes with a musician and Champion but no standard bearer, so I pillaged a spare Dwarf Standard from the Quarrellers box, cut it at the wrist and stuck it onto one slayer's right arm, and he looks really good, as if he's running with his standard.
