Dim and Slimeridden Kingdoms: Return of the Greatest Power For Evil


Recommended Posts

Fat Dragon Games, the creators of your giant slug, have a 50% off sale on their whole inventory on RPGNow until the end of May... So the STL file for said slug is only a $1.00 right now.

I’m not sure if you have a 3D printer or not, but for a buck, you might as well grab the file. Then if you want to add more slugs to your army, you’ll just need to find a public library or a maker space with 3D printers (or bribe a friend who has one).

Thanks, appreciate the heads up!

Answer the cry of thy servant who knoweth the words of power,
I make the sign, I speak the words that opened the door!
Come forth I say, I turn the Key!
Now, step upon the Earth once more!

SO, new Infernal Dwarves book is upon us, and I have not been idle! 

Let me just first say I love the new book! Great synergy, lot of cool, interesting options! My list more or less ports over, model wise: I lose the Hobgoblin Chieftain on Wolf (Spider), but everything else is usable. So between the points I save and downgrading my Subjugater to an Infernal Dwarf BSB + a 6th regular Anointed, I end up with enough points to add a whole WIZARD MASTER with some toys! Before I didn't really have a block to put a infantry BSB and Wizard, but now that Citadel Guard can be in blocks of 30, they finally have the bunker they need.

This meant that I needed a Prophet! After not being super happy with the various "dwarven wizards" I found online, and finding out that my OLD Infernal Dwarf Prophet was like a head shorter than these Scibor models, I ended up converting one out of a freebie that I received from my last Scibor order.

Horns were added from, appropriately enough, the helmet horns of my previous Prophet.  Book is from the Flaggelant kit, and he's standing on the stone from the plastic GW Dwarf hero who's name I can't remember.

I also present my first fully painted model:

Initially I had the blue a light brighter (see picture below); However after painting the shells on some more big snail dudes, I decided I liked a darker, more muted blue. I was worried I was going to have to completely repaint this guy's shell, but I was able to glaze over with some pure black paint and it seemed to work really well.

I working on the other snails as we speak, and hope to have them done before too long.

Slime,
In time you'll face your end line.
Judge me not before yourself.
Breed,
Take my pride - that's all you can.
Hatred surges burning me.
Feed,
For what atonement do you seek,
Your dying grasp of loyalty breaks like brittle bones

WELL, this is a post that is certainly long overdue. My dim, slimy army has been in hibernation for a while, due to the combination of the Infernal Dwarves army book going through a number of changes, as well as the world shutting down due to COVID. With the book now close to finished ("only minor changes" before it hits Gold status) and with me taking the army to it's first trial run, I thought it was time to start posting again.
About 2 weeks a month ago, we had the "Vaccination Vanguard," a 3 round tournament that 6  of us locals competed in to celebrate having gotten our Covid vaccines. Rather than bring my Ogre Kingdoms or Sylvan Elves, I decided to bring my Infernal Dwarves to see how they would play. After about 2 weeks of putting lists together, I settled for this one:

520 - Prophet, Prophet of Ashuruk, Wizard Master, Alchemy, Shield, Alchemist's Alloy, Binding Scroll
435 - Taurukh Commissioner, Battle Standard Bearer, Shield, Basalt Infusion, Infernal Weapon (Onyx Core)
195 - Vassal Conjurer, Wizard Adept, Pyromancy
605 - 30 Infernal Warriors, Shield, Ziggurat Regulars, Standard Bearer (Flaming Standard), Musician
325 - 30 Vassal Levies, Spear and Shield, Bow, Musician, Standard Bearer (Legion Standard)
195 - 20 Vassal Levies, Paired Weapons, Bow, Musician
620 - 5 Taurukh Anointed, Infernal Weapon, Shield, Standard Bearer (Flaming Standard), Musician, Champion
280 - Infernal Artillery, Rocket Battery
190 - 5 Vassal Cavalry
190 - 5 Vassal Cavalry
475 - Kadim Titan, Walking Earthquake
470 - Infernal Engine, Rock Crusher
4500


I had most of this list ready to go, but there were a few things I needed to prep. First and simplest of these was the 20 Vassal Levies with bows. These were done again with the good ol' Oathmark Goblin Infantry set.

Unlike the spear Vassals that I put together, I opted to not remove these from their "bases" that were molded onto the models, mostly because I was feeling lazy, but I'm also hopeful that after these are based these won't be noticeable.

Next, I put together the Infernal Artillery Rocket Battery. This was a simple matter of using a "Snail Folk" mini from Rocket Pig Designs along with some 40K bits from the bits box. Simple, but effective (or so I think).

The final and hardest thing that I needed to source was the Kadim Titan. I've searched the far corners of the internet trying to find something appropriately slimy in plastic or resin, and have had zero luck after about a year of searching. Until I stumbled across THIS beauty:

This model was everything I was looking for and more. I had a lot of reservations though, as I was not sure he would come out the right size (I do not own a 3D printer). But a buddy of mine was willing to print him up, and he came out PERFECT. And his mace has LITTLE SLUGS IN IT!!!

So the list preformed very well at our tournament; I went 3-0, with scores of 20-0, 20-0, and 18-2! Time will tell how much of that was luck and how much of that was the army being strong vs me being a semi-competent gamer, but I'm looking forward to getting some paint on the damp and dim legions!
