RuneCast Miniatures has released their new Dwarf Swordplayer miniature over in their webshop.
My, that’s a big sword he’s got.
From the release:
Here the third Swordplayer for the Lansquenet-Dwarfs Elite Unit.
Saw this the other day – pretty interesting, reminds me of the really old GW Imperial Dwarves (I think they were originally Marauder Miniatures?). I guess these in particular are based on the historical Landsknecht Doppelsoldners who typically used two-handed swords and dressed like this.
IIRC, the original Citadel “Imperial Dwarves” were (oddly) mid-13th century in appearance. I don’t know what Marauder called their landsknecht ones. I think dwarves would rock pike & shot tactics!
I love ’em both. And yeah, this one looks pretty complimentary.
A very nice figure. Have to add him to “the list”.
