So, I trekked into town today and picked up a new palette. I would have been happy with just another bit of junk - a cheap plate out of Tesco, maybe - but Ailsa suggested I get an actual palette since I like to mix up colours, so I went to independent Glasweigan art store Millers and picked up a wee palette there.

So briefly deferring to another palette wielder...
.... lets get back to the Chaos Dwarfs, shall we?

|Some other angles for you.|
I've got to cast up some more blunderbuss figures - I'd really like a unit of 20, which may be points inefficient to use often but mechanically the unit gains special rules when at that size. I'll also need some command figures - champion, standard bearer and musician. That's a little trickier, since they go for a bomb on eBay - I might go third party for those, since a company called Russian Alternative make some nice "Dwarfs of Fire Canyon" figures. They've got a similar-ish aesthetic, and are pretty affordable - only problem might be the shipping time from Russia to Scotland, and whether or not my figures try to annex Crimea on the way. BOOM THAT WAS A POLITICS JOKE.
