    That all sounds about right! My personal experience with resin varies from not great (china-cast) to pretty good (Scibor). Some resin can be fairly brittle and requires a soft hand. One thing they all have had in common, in my experience, is that I've had to use Green Stuff in addition to my usual glue (Loctite Gel Control) in order to get a bond going in any reasonable amount of time, although that could be an issue with the glue and not the resin? I've mostly been ok with just using the Green Stuff rather than pinning, except on the fiddly bits like the spear hafts for my Infernal Guard and the exhaust pipes for the Infernal Engine that was sitting on an uneven curved surface.
    PPE is probably a good idea too. I should have used some...

    And the slithering begins
    As the shell of men crawl weeping
    And as the light of dawn is growing
    The realization sets in
    And with the winds that are blowing
    The final truth has come

    I did some stuff! Slimy stuff! This week has been extremely busy with work, and I've been coming home exhausted, but I put in a little time and managed to finish my Infernal Engine! 

    The model is yet another Scibor beauty, the appropriately named "Evil Dwarves Snail Cannon." I could have probably could have just used the model as is and called it good, but I wanted to add some more "engine" to the model, so to that end I picked up a pair of spooky exhaust pipes from the 40K Mauler/Forgefiend models off of Feebay.

    While the cannon bits from the original model are awesome, I plan to run this guy with the "Steam Hammers" option rather than the Shrapnel Gun, so to that end I decided to just have a trio of Evil Dwarves on the top to smack stuff to represent this. The model came with 2 great crew members, and then I had my Overlord from my previous ID army kicking around, so he got to join the crew.

    So the model concept was fairly simple: Take the original models and slap some exhaust pipes on it. It did take a bit of work to find just the right spots on the model though; lots of trial and error, lots of shaving of sections of the model so the pipes fit a bit more snugly. I ended up pinning the pipes into place on both sides for stability, and while it took a while, I was very happy with the results.







     
    A bit less exciting, but another 10 Citadel Guard assembled and based. 



    Have a few more awesome things in the works, although I am a bit at the mercy of international shipping. Hopefully not too long before I can post an update... If I run out of things to assemble, I might actually have to start painting... *shudder*

    Trapped in a spell of the Gastronomicon.

    Actually completed my hobby goals for this weekend!... mostly. Still, I'm as surprised as anyone. Remaining Anoited riders were cleaned and assembled, and all of them where staged for priming and painting (they will all have shields, except for the Subjegator, but those will be painted last).


    Next up is the infantry. Plan is to run 3 units of 10 Citadel Guard with shields and Flintlock Axes. Got some more beautiful minis from Scibor to use. I originally anticipated this part to be pretty easy, however I didn't realize that the weapon shafts would be split in half. I ended up pinning all of them in place for stability, which took forever!




    So 18 more to go (I managed to finish 2 more, not pictured)! Hope to have them done in the next few days, and then I can move on to something LARGER (Bwa ha ha ha!), Until then!

    Snails, slugs, and all the other creepy-crawlies that live under rocks makes a much more fitting aesthetic match for the evil dwarf archetype than GW’s “Mesopotamian Fire Worshipper” idea... And I’ve never seen anyone else do it.

    Lol, yeah the campaign is on an indefinite hiatus. Dispatches from the field tell of some horrible pandemic in the camps. Apparently all the soldiers and townsfolk have been ordered to stay home. What's surprising is even the plague-ridden rat-men seem to be taking the issue seriously.
    I hope everyone is managing to stay healthy, and I look forward to picking things back up when we're on the other side.

    Some time ago (2ish years? 3 years?), I started up a blog for an Infernal Dwarf army, titled "The Greatest Power For Evil." The title was a play on this video, which has remained a favorite of mine over the years (*language warning*):
     
    The project didn't last super long; Anyone who knows me knows that I'm notorious for starting army projects, only to abandon them halfway through and sell the army and move on to some other project. I was about that point into the ID army and I hit that same wall: I wasn't happy with the models, I wasn't happy with the basing, I wasn't happy with the army I had (I wanted to play pretty much the other half of the army book that I didn't own). So i sold the army and moved on.
    Some time later, I came across these awesome models from Scibor miniatures:

    Awesome models, but what would someone use them for? They were big, seemingly overflowing on their 50mm base. They look like they would fit comfortably on a 50x75 base though... Maybe they could be used as Taurukh Anointed (Bull Centaurs in Old World speak)? If I'm being honest, the whole "Fire and Bulls" theme that Chaos / Infernal Dwarves are traditional depicted doesn't do a ton for me. But degenerate evil dwarves riding giant snails... hmmm...
    I poured over the Scibor range, poured over the internet, and this idea of having an entire army of Infernal Dwarves that was centered around gastropods and other gross creepy crawlies took hold, and refused to leave my brain. Fast forward several years later, and here we are. 

    While the goal of my previous army was to do things as cheaply as possible, this army was going to be a hobby army, and I don't want to compromise on my vision for it. To that end, I've forked over waaaaaay to much money to Scibor for their minis, which are not cheap; But they do go on sale from time to time. 
    The first part of the army: 5 Taurukh Anointed with Infernal Weapons, shields, full command, and Banner of Shamut. In the unit goes a Taurukh Subjugator (BSB) with a Great Weapon and Death Cheater. I got the snails all cleaned, which was fairly easy (these things are pretty hefty chunks of resin, almost no mold lines to clean) and got them on bases. I had to finagle them a bit so they would rank up, but was fairly painless.

    Next up was the Subjegator. Since I wanted him holding a great weapon, I decided to mount the Battle Standard to the snail.Nothing too crazy, added a pin in the handle and drilled a hole into the shell. Flag is from the GW Ogre Mournfang box, and topper is from... either Blight Kings or Plague Drones kit.



    The rider was a bit trickier. I've never been great at pinning weapons into place, but I used a weapon from the previous Chaos Knights kit as a great weapon, and added some different horns (from the Chaos Knights banner topper) to make him more distinct from the rest of the models. 



    Also got through the unit's command. One of the biggest challenge is trying to make these models differentiate from each other, since there are really only 2 sculpts for both the riders and the snails. Banner Bearer got his helmet's horns hacked off and was given a banner from the Bloodletter kit and a piece of metal rod (yes, I will clean up that mold line).


    Musician and Champion were more straight forward; The normal models, but the sword and the instrument came from the good ol' Chaos Knights kit.


    And that's it for tonight! Very stoked for this project, hopeful to get the other 2 riders assembled and get everything staged for sub-assembly painting tomorrow so I can put together the infantry over the weekend. Until next time!

    There’s a shop on Etsy that sells a very nice looking Flail Snail miniature (which has nice historical connections). It would make a pretty good mid-sized solo monster for Infernal Dwarfs... I don’t think they have a Chaos Spawn or Hydra equivalent, but I’m not that familiar with their army list.

    I will say, I was very disappointed that there was no best army list award, as it was clearly the dread elves even when played poorly.  Also, there was no "most likely to shout" or "most obnoxious player" awards which should be incorporated into next year's events.  I look forward to continue getting my ass kicked over the next long while.
