The goal of this project is to build and paint a Dwarf Hold army for The 9th Age, beginning with dwarfs I bought 11 years ago.

I forgot I had these. They are part of my initial dwarf army and I never got around to painting them.

Previously I painted a dwarf army I’ve had lying around for many years. With everything painted, I can field an army of about 3200 points. The standard size of a battle in 9th Age is 4500 points. Therefor the goal of this second part of the project will be to expand my army to 4500 points. I’ve already bought sufficient new miniatures to reach the goal. Now all I have to do is to assemble and paint them. This will allow me to finally play a game with my dwarfs!

This is an other terrain piece from Printable Scienery I’ve painted for my gaming club. This should be the last entry for this project… again. 🙂

Right! I ended this project months ago, but my gaming club had more dwarfish terrain dat needed to be painted. So here they are.

One more big terrain piece to go.

All my dwarfs are painted. 11 years after buying them and 6 months after starting this project. I’m proud of myself. 😊

With this army I can fight a small battle, but it’s too small for 4500 points (standard size army in 9th Age). At some point in the future I will expand this army to 4500 points, but for now I’ve got plenty of other miniatures to paint.

This was a more problematic miniature. I have two of these and painted the other one earlier in this project. Once I started painting this one, I discovered the primer lay on so thick, it made the details practically disappear and was almost impossible to paint. (It was already primed when I bought it.)

I stripped the miniature, trying to get the primer off. It helped, but the primer is still to thick and obscures details. I tried to make the best of it. The shield was painted to simulate battle damage.
