Tonight's unit from this months on going dwarf project is the elite Hammerers bodyguard of the king. In WFB 3rd edition these guys are +4 shock elites (IE dead hard)
The Mantic army set included a unit of shield breakers (IE dwarfs with double handed hammers). However they didn't really look any different from the rest of the units. So I did a bit of mixing and matching and chose all the bodies with cloaks and closed face helms to to mark the unit out from the rest of the dwarfs as a bit different. I painted the cloaks burgundy too to give them a more elite look.
The command group for this unit were a bit of a problem however. The Mantic army set only contains two command sprues despite giving you three regiments of fighting dwarf's. So a delve into the bits box found me a beastman horn, an empire spear and a lion helmet which with some green stuff (to enclose the helmets) and some extras of the Mantic sprues gave me a musician, leader and standard bearer for this unit.
Hopefully along with the army general and army standard bearer this unit will provide the rock hard core of my dwarf army.
