Bood Miniature Dwarf Project

I posted a couple of pictures recently in another of my topics regarding my attempt to restart my dwarf army using Bood models instead of the usual 80's dwarfs. Having now got my hands on both the cavalry and foot soldiers I've decided they warrant their own dedicated topic as they really are a joy to paint.

So here are a few photos of what I've painted so far ( still not finished )

Cavalry

Foot

At the moment I've only got 10 of each type and I'm using these to see how easy it will be to convert them to make them more unique. The reason for this is the very limited number of sculpts. This will more often than not just be a change of beard or nose to give that variety to the models. This can be seen in the 2 foot soldiers. The one on right has simply had his moustache and nose enlarged, whereas the one on left has had his whole beard removed and then the mail coif extended and finally a new moustache added.

Right I've finished the 10 dwarfs I had ordered and must say really enjoyed both the converting and painting of these great little models. Thought I'd post some photos to show both the finished models and the slight conversions I've managed to make them more unique. Not the best photos but does show the differences I've managed to create, with on the most part a simple nose job or beard trim !

The last photo shows my attempt at making a 2-handed version as BOOD doesn't really have an option for that. It was a simple case of removing the original weapon and adding a nice Dane Axe from Gripping Beast. I would love to have the models holding the axe in both hands but that is way out of my converting skills. Anyway hope you can see the photos ! and hope you like.

The Dragon design I'm using was inspired by a Paul Bonner sketch from a White Dwarf .

Managed to paint up the first of my cavalry. I want to give the cavalry a sense of movement so will be converting them to give them the look of running. It's hard to see in photo due to crappy photo and the grass tufts but the pony has been converted so that all hooves are off the ground to give movement I'm after.

Sadly looks as if my order from France has been held up due to Covid so have been working on the cavalry I had ordered previously. Not a big update just a WIP of one of the riders I've been working on. I'm really happy with how this has turned out and is probably the most reworking I've done on any so far and definitely shows how I'm getting a lot more confident in my greenstuff skills

Not only am I making a new helmet for him but I also cut away most of the face and greenstuffed a new one. Before this I've been mainly just adding to the original figures. I'm finding its a lot easier if you work on small areas at a time, so nose, then mouth, then beard.
