This blog is about my private venture into having Mr. John (Poshgoblin) Pickford doing me a small range of 28mm dwarf miniatures that will fulfill my personal need for more dark, sinister and vicious dwarfs.

Ewal sorcery - Patriarch and Acolyte

I've been wanting these for such a looooong time, but I've given the rank and file units priority, but with the Heavy Boar Knights almost done it's time to add a bit of magic to the range of Ewal Dvergar.

During the winter John has not only completed the heavy cavalry (lance knights on barded boars) but also build me a pair of multi part wizards.

The Ewal Sorcery will consist of a Patriarch - a battle-harden heavy armoured old wizard - and a Acolyte - a younger and less experienced servant - that do his best to help but also got a few tricks up his sleeve as well.

Ewal Patriarch - Old wizard in magical armour

The Ewal Patriarch has the choice of five different helmet, three right hands (staff, sword and hammer) and five right ones (2 staffs, severed head, 2 scrolls).


And here's some of the different builds that can be done:

Sword and severed head

Staff and open scroll

Hammer and scroll roll

Hammer and staff 1

Hammer and staff 2

Ewal Acolyte - young wizard
The Ewal Acolyte is a single piece body scultp with a separate hand system. The Acolyte is dressed in a cape and carries all the gear needed for battle including the big book of the Ewal Magic tired to his back. The Acolyte has a bare face but it's a face that shows his commitment in battle. The Acolyte has lost his eye but due to his enthusiasm and commitment he has been rewarded and a magical glass eye has been inserted as a replacement.

The Acolyte has a choice of five right hands (Sword, sacrificial dagger, staff, hammer and an open hand) and three left ones (staff, book, open hand)

Broadsword and staff 1

Sacrificial dagger and book

Open right hand and staff 1

Staff 2 and open left hand

Hammer and open left hand holding an orb

Now off for master moulding they go :)

Metal masters are here for quality control and approval

I've just approved the masters for the boar knights and they are now heading back to the UK for the final mouldings - but I couldn't resist building a few and take some pictures for you - so here they are:

So one last push ... :)

February releases

The Ewal Knights are still awaiting a production stage but to keep you warm the following miniatures came out hot of a new production mould - and have all been added to the "how to get some"-section

EB-01 Arnórr - Ewal Beserkr
A single piece miniature with separate head. Comes with 3 different head-options. The miniature is sculpted by John "Poshgoblin" Pickford

EDP-20 Finngálkin - Ewal Dvergr Centaur
A multi part miniature with 2 separate heads - bull's helmet and a horse visor helmet one. The miniature comes with 3 different hand weapons (mace, axe and hammer). Also included is a plain shield. The miniature has been sculpted by John "Poshgoblin" Pickford

EDX-90 Dvergr Mountaineer
A single piece miniature with a pair of skis - just because it's that kind of season up here in the North. Will do great guarding the Northern Borders of the realm. The miniature is sculpted by myself.

All 3 miniatures have been added to the "Character"-section.

Spacefarers, Pirates and Adventurers
The last piece is something rather new to me and is a Space Pirate:

The miniature is called Rana Geil and were originally sculpted for the the 2014 Frother's Sculpting Compatition: "Froth Eisley - A Hive of Froth and Villainy" by Sjoerd Trowee. The miniature has been add to this brand new section of the "how to get some":

Boar Knights greens - the command group

To finish of the Boar Knights John has build 2 command figures. A beautiful Musician and an impressive army standard bearer with the magnificent Raven banner.

And here they are:

EDK10 Boar Knight Musician

The axe hand is a seperate piece and will be interchangable with the two left hands from the main knights set.

EDK-10 - Boar Knight Musician

EDK10 Army Standard Bearer

The banner has been a rather challenging piece but I believe John nailed it. I'm so proud of the Raven Banner - will look spectacular on the battle field.

The standard bearer will also come with a smaller teamed Boar banner.

But also with an opportunity for fielding him as an army champion by giving him an impressive demon faced shield.

EDK-10 Boar Knight Army Standard Bearer

Boar Knights greens - the Knights with hand weapon and shield

Been taking a fair bit longer than expected but John Pickford has finalised the Ewal Dvergar Boar Knights and the prototypes are now ready for another mastermoulding proces and then they can enter the production stage.

Here's a small introduction of what to expect.

First the mounts themselves - the 3 new alternative boar poses

Bringing it to a full set of 5 different poses

And then the riders - the Ewal Dvergar Knights - and again a multi-parted project with lots of options for different builds. We've build these 4 different body poses:

And they will come with the choice of 6 heads, 7 hands and probably 4 or 5 shields

Only one of the two metal sallets (second and third from left) will go into this set

7 right hands - 2 left hands

The face shield will be saved for another project
- and only one of the stars will become available with this one.

Will show you builds when I have some masters in my hand.
