Gold-Silver-Gems We Find Them All-And Fight As Well

A company of mining expert dwarfs with their supply cart are ready to go down into the depths of the Earth searching for natures hidden wealth.
On this journey into long forgotten mines the possibility ity of finding orc or goblins is high so the miners have armored themselves in their best chainmail.
Their strong picks can double as brutal two-handed weapons if combat arises.
Brave, stalwart and highly skilled at both war and mining, these dwarfs are valuable members of the Army of the Low King.
The captain of the company is metal all the rest are plastic, all are from Games Workshop.  I painted the dwarfs in the early 2000's and the pony wagon around 2008.

Hansjon is a metal piece from Privateer Press and is one of a unit that belongs to my Khador Army.
