It's Warhammer time for this week's post. For all you Warhammer enthusiast out there, it has been quite some time since the release of the New Empire Book. Looking at the new units, I can safely say that the Empire got a pretty good facelift.
I would make an Honourable mentuion to the huge ass griffon and the new Emperor Karl Franz sculpt that makes my Bretonnian King and his hippogriff look like a mini version of their gargantuan size.
Karl Franz and his Griffon
They don't look too ugly to me though. Kinda cute I guess.
Based on the poem "Voluspa" from the Poetic Edd, it has an account of the first human being having been created by the dwarves. It also stated that the dwarves are products of the primordial blood of the being Brimir and the bones of Bláinn.
Dwarven Warriors ready for WAR!
In the Warhammer world, Dwarves were aided in their development by the Old ones. While not much is known on how they came about, their insatiable addiction to Gold and Gromril has always been prevalent in Dwarven society and well-known among all.

As mentioned in my previous dwarven post, I have been building up my Dwarven Army and these are my warriors. Usually, Dwarven Warriors are drawn up from the citizenry of Dwarven Society. Most of them comprised of craftsmen and artisans.
Rank and File, Dwarves!
However, for my Dwarven Army theme, the warriors from the Silver Axe, Triple Steel and Ogren Clan are professional soldiers. Similar to the Spartans, the Dwarven Warriors under the command of Thane Utheroth of Karak Grothak, are constantly honing their skills by adventuring or seeking to land a hand to help their fellow dwarves in battle. I shall not stall any further so enjoy these Dwarf Warriors pics below:

While I still have quite some way to completing my dwarven army, bit by bit I am making good progress. Not toos ure if you noticed, but it all started out with my 10 Ironbreakers, followed by the Thundereers, and with my three regiments of Dwarven Warriors and a Thane, I think I could field a 2k army soon.
Till then, Got to be deep in progress in terms of painting and acquiring new stuff. At the moment, I still find it hard to adjust to the new paint series and trying to link the old names with the new ones.
Aside from that, I would also like to raise a topic that has been widely discussed among many fellow Warhammer gamers. Prices have continually increased at a frequent rate for GW products. For myself, I have been buying second hand stuff or acquiring miniatures on ebay, while I still do quite a bit of the painting and rely on painting services for some stuff, buying mainly from GW is way too expensive for me.
The only thing that I really buy direct is the citadel paints which in my opinion are high quality and have the greatest texture for an acrylic paint.
What are all of your opinions on the price increase and GW's modus operandi?
