CC 201 -  Dwarf Army Review

Rattle of iron and the grinding or rock, the moment of reckoning for the World of Mantica is upon us!  Today we proudly present our Dwarf Army Review.  Huge thanks to our crack team of Dwarfologists; Billy Smith, Kevin VonFeldt and Alex Chavez.  Without their significant contributions this show wouldn't be possible.  In this 3 hours episode we dissect the force list, answer a ton of listener questions and provide some seasoned insight into playing, and sometimes winning, with Dwarfs in Kings of War.  We'll be back again in a few weeks with part 2 when we tackle our Dwarf Hobby Review!

Review of Available Miniatures

  • Magister Militum (UK manufacturer) - makes both miniatures and terrain. has a fantastic small scale castle that can be used for siege scenarios

  • Warmaster figs from GW (Out of Print)

  • Copplestone Casting (UK) good range of human and orcs for Lotr - GREAT WOLVES!

  • Pendraken (UK manufacturer) - a mm or two larger than an individual GW Warmaster figure - think the website says 12mm.

  • Old Glory (UK and US) - great selection of historical for use with Kingdoms of Men

  • Eureka Miniatures (US / Australia) - really nice lizardmen

  • Kallistra - UK

  • Black Gate Ogres - look like 10mm version of GW Ogres

  • Warmonger-Miniatures (US) incredible humans, limited range

  • http://laranminiatures.bigcartel.com/ - Chaosy stuff.

  • https://www.trolls.cz/collections/10mm-fantasy-miniatures - More Chaosy stuff.  Maraduers, characters, trolls.
