At long last Dwarf World is here, with the first two 5-piece sets - Town Folk and Tavern Folk - available to buy from our website.

Town Folk

Each set costs £9.99 GBP. They are cast in white metal and are in 28mm scale. These integrally-based Dwarfs will be available in limited numbers only, as they won't be re-moulded - please read on to find out why.

Bob had always planned to make Dwarf World an extensive range of miniatures covering all aspects of Dwarf life, but then an unexpected email from Simon Harris, offering to make a special resin display piece designed specifically for them, added a new dimension to the range. Simon suggested a Hostelry or Tavern - we loved the idea, and as we speak, work has already begun on the Boars Head Tavern. We hope this will be available in the near future.

This new development, however, presented a problem with the original Dwarf World characters, as they were all made with integral bases, some even with grass. Bob realised these figures would not display well when standing on a flagstone floor! So since Christmas, Bob has been busy altering the greens by removing the bases and adding pegs. Once remoulded and cast, the new Dwarf World characters will be able to be used either with a plastic slottabase, or permanently glued into position without a slottabase in the tavern.

Tavern Folk

The original integrally-based dwarfs will still be available to buy, but we have no plans to re-mould them - who knows, due to the limited numbers of these original Dwarfs, they might even become highly collectable.

Don't forget, we are still offering free postage worldwide, and we can accept all major credit cards and most currencies through PayPal, the safe and easy way to shop online. It's free of charge to use, as we pay the transacation fee.
