Yesterday, when I showed off the Volcano Dwarf clerics, I said that they might be the final units for the army.

Volcano Dwarves

After a quick inventory of my workbench… yes, this army is complete!

Volcano Dwarves

It's not a large army – just 35 stands, lots of guns and a disproportionate number of command stands.

Volcano Dwarves

The whole project started back in the 90s, when I painted up some Grenadier Dwarves for a 'last stand' type scenario involving command and spear, plus a few Ral Partha wagon-mounted ballistas (half-painted and back in the lead pile somewhere!).

Volcano Dwarves

The opposing army was intended to be Goblins and maybe some Kobolds. The rules were probably Battlesystem. The figures were originally single-based, with the idea that I could change bases for different rulesets. My friends didn't think much of the red-and-yellow color scheme – the McDonaldland Dwarves, they said. grin

Volcano Dwarves

Well, I changed jobs, moved around the country a few times, and the figures ended up in a box somewhere. And one day, I dug them out, and said: let's finish this army!

Volcano Dwarves

During my long project pause, I had picked up more Grenadier Dwarves at sale prices – enough for a nice gun line, and a small body of well-disciplined troops.

Volcano Dwarves

By now, I already had several Dwarf armies, so I had to figure out what made this one unique. Looking at the color scheme, I figured these guys were chaotic and perhaps a bit crazy – they live in volcanos! They have a small army with lots of guns and a little magic, and make extensive use of allies and mercenaries.

Volcano Dwarves

So I rebased the Dwarves I'd painted all those years ago, and sent the rest from my lead pile off to our good friends in Sri Lanka – Fernando Enterprises – for painting to match the original look. And then I based them up, and here we are!

Volcano Dwarves

What next? Well, I've been dreaming up some kind of campaign with the Volcano Dwarves going on the attack against some nice, peaceful peoples… with a variety of oddball and sometimes low-value allies and mercenaries. I've got plenty of recent armies that need to get onto the tabletop!

Volcano Dwarves

You'll see the Volcano Dwarves again, I promise!
