I've heard tell of Dwarfish swords being available for purchase. I was wondering where from and what other Dwarfish arms and weapons were available that were suited for Grim Hammers, please (I have one missing a right arm, figured I could patch him up, maybe convert him into a Captain of Erebor or Grim Hammers etc).

To update anyone else following this thread I think Thermo commissioned them from Shadow & Flame. Does anyone have a good source for SBG scaled arms and/or weapons that are ready as is? Preferably for Dwarfs.

Yeah I was thinking about trying to get something like this as well. I looked on ebay and you can get some warhammer bits pretty cheap which mostly would look ok I think but arent perfect.
I heard the Shadow and flame conversions are just plastic card type cut outs painted on, which doesn't seem too hard and you could get the right look.

These new Dwarves by Northstar have many components that could be used for conversions:

Here's a review with photos of the sprues: http://wargameterrain.blogspot.de/2017/ ... -news.html

Personally I really love them! They look exactly like I imagined Dwarves from the books.

polywags: Whilst that's true, I imagine Shaodw & Flame are also sculpting the arm/hand and for this particular conversion/model, I need the entire right arm as well as the weapon. As for Bay and using Warhammer pieces etc - they are a hndred miles away in terms of scale for a Grim Hammer (having collected fantasy for years and picking up a spare piece to check).

metalface13: Thanks for the useful links. It's not specifically the weapon that's proving problematic, so much as the scale for the arm to hold it.

Feanor: Thanks - interesting models and very reminiscent of Middle-Earth artwork. Unfortunately, I don't have the funds to buy an entire set and literally just need the one right arm. That being said, have you any spare pieces from it that might be suitable?

I don't have them yet, unfortunately. Maybe ebay could be of help, if it's only about 1 arm anyway?
