Ryan Hansen / Daily Vidette Staff Photographer: James Hyde of Pekin, Ill. and Chuck Jiardina from Bloomington, Ill. faced off in a game of strategy during a local tournament held at Gryfalia’s Aerie, a game shop in downtown Bloomington. Hyde said, “We’re playing Warhammer Fantasy, and it’s a great time.”

Picked up these from my boy Kevin F. and now we are putting some together. We got all that we need now for the HellFire Dwarfs! Currently we are up for Skulling out the MFers and will end up priming them this week. I already have bases for them and plan on taking all level 1 daemonsmiths with potentially a level 2 metal. We'll see how it all goes and play all 3 of them at the 2,000 point level, potentially no lord.

Posting some progress on my Chaos dwarfs. I had to alter the Hellcannon a little and pre built it for Magma Cannon use. I did use a different color combination for the blue but that will bring out good color for the entire army. More pics to come!

Some progress on my bits-assembled Hierotitan that took about a week to do. He is on a scenic base with some cobblestone and hill at his feet. The bits all from a sphinx box set and this model is done for a commission. The skirt was greenstuffed and we used white primer.

Well One of my more recent units finished is a group of Gnoblars that I plan on using as goblinoids in various armies. They did serve as Gnoblars but will be used as Hobgoblins in my Chaos dwarf army. Most models are kit bashed with goblin heads, empire shields, and warrior of chaos bits. The bases are again hand made from cork and wood.

Movement trays still have to be done, but bases are hand made in the same way and lots of time, to much time put into these little guys. enjoy....please leave comments if you want. The standard bearer is pipped to have a Black Orc Metal top, the mouth of a hellcannon, and a Chaos regimental banner top. The champion is being carried on a platform from the earthshaker.

Well here it is, Iron Daemon with converted casted hellcannon wheels, thanks instacast. Chaos Dwarf in Charge on top. Rehighlighted Ironblaster, that was used with Ogre Kingdoms, and put into play for a new army. The movement tray is chariot sized, but hand made from balsa wood, cork, and several types of static grass and moss. Still Under Consideration are more parts and bits to help tie more of a theme in on the tank; however, thats for the future and this is now.
