Snorri Stoneheart

Finished my second party member this week.

Snorri  is a mercenary fighter of the Fist of Iron Adventuring Company. Since listening to his Uncle Tharzon's tales of ancient treasures, daring battles against Orcs, Goblins and other strange creatures when visiting the family hold. All Snorri has ever wanted to do was become an adventurer. Snorri has spent many years training with his two handed axe and wandering around the family hold hunting goblins he is now old enough and has decided to leave the family home and seek his own path. His proud father Grommel Stoneheart understanding his son's wishes and thirst for adventure has gifted him with his old suit of heavy plate armour to protect him whilst his mother has gifted him with an an ornate warhammer that belonged to her grandfather nick named 'Crusher' Snorri now joins his Uncle and the Fists of Iron on there latest adventures.

Again another cracking sculpt nice change to break out the metal paints and have a play as most stuff i've painted in the past has had minimal metal on really.





Snorri and his Uncle Tharzon

Had a go at doing a different style base with Snorri did some missing flagstones. I quite like it and may do it on a few other figures.

Work has started on the hounds and Cleric will do more work on those.

  6. "How do you beat a fully armored dwarf? Push him over!" Sorry, this joke came to me after seeing how armored up this guy is! Great work on it though. So much metal on a miniature is hard to paint, good job!

    1. Thanks yeah he is well armoured. I think If I was doing another version I might do a few of the shoulder plates in a colour of some sort as if its lacquered.

    1. Thanks very much Anne, I'm quite enthralled with this project especially with the background I'd forgotten how much fun fantasy could be.

  11. Very traditional :-) . And I'm *so* glad that you kept the background and names straight (none of the "Groin, son of Drain" stuff...)
