    In my ceaseless attempt to keep y'all updated on small miniature vendor news, Norba miniatures out of Spain have just released new dwarves. This will serve as an ongoing thread which I will update.

    Between these and mom, my dwarf expansion of my undead will probably happen now.

    I could see using those dwarves as a basis for chaos dwarves.

    Nice fur on those. The wings on the riders are not my style though.

    Well, I'm assuming they are based off of winged hussars from polish history.

    I also kinda like the shape of their weapons, especially the polearms look quite realistic.

    Yeah but that's very common even with human miniatures of big companies. Faces are hard.
    Which is also one if the reasons why I don't play humans.

    Yeah same here. At least when I paint them. There are a few painters that really manage to pull off human faces on GW miniatures for example, but I am certainly not one of them.

    I can generally be convincing, but full faced helms help

    I watched a YT video some time ago, it was called "how to paint space marine faces" or so and it showed an interesting technique that was similar to drybrushing, leaving some deep recesses and actually omitting eyeballs. It looked a bit comic like but really dark. I might try that on my next human face.

    Same here but they still get more blurry than I like them to be.
    They look fine from a meter away but up close.... meh.

    Those trolls are pretty cool. Not as great as that Slann they made though!
