    Default Oldhammer - Bugman's Beer Cart & Prince Ulther's Dwarfs

    Hello forum,

    Thought I would maintain a small presence here. My blog is about my own Imagi-Nations version of the re-taking of Moria. Dwarf clans of many worlds and fictions come together to re-colonize the lost kingdoms of their ancestors. Yes, I am mixing fluff, just like I am mixing miniatures companies. But I always do so with a general Oldhammer direction in mind, I will be using a housebrew mix of rules based on Warhammer 1st edition with elements of LOTR SBG, Song of Blades, and even Lion Rampant. See my blog for more details of this project. On to highlights of the post...

    Morale is about to be boosted in Moria... the beer cart has arrived! Dwarves take their beer seriously and this shipment is guarded by none other than Prince Ulther's Imperial Dwarfs. Hmm... maybe I should have read the fluff before assembling them. Apparently, they are also known as the Dragon Company, but I didnt get any shields with these guys in a trade. So, I scoured my bits box and found these lion shields that are for older Empire spearmen (5th edition box set, maybe?) I like them, so now they are called Prince Ulther's Lion Company. Im still missing the banner bearer, musician, and the 2nd in command figure. Im waiting for a reasonable price on ebay for those.

    Prince Ulther himself, not a dwarf who should be trifled with.

    Lovely work on this small company, I like it when people use many sources of miniatures if an overall look is maintained, which it looks like your are doing.

    You were one edition out on those shields BTW, they were from Empire Spearmen from the 6th Edition starter set, I should know, I've got around 50 of the blighters in various states of preparedness.....
