Grenadier Fantasy Warriors Dwarfs III

Following on from me digging out around 450 Greandier FW Dwarfs, I also remembered that some time ago i bought three Ral Partha Bear Chariots of the Ice Lands. My intention was to use them to give my Dwarfs some chariotry to go with the bear cavalry!

I bought mine on eBay, but you can still get them from Iron Wind Metals. As these are sleds pulled by polar bears I have decided to paint all the bear cavalry as polar bears, and model the entire army on snow bases!

There are plenty of good reference photo's such as:

Now I just need to decide what figures to use as charioteers. Selection is best seen from the Mirliton site. I'm guessing that either spear armed (or converted to hold spear) or a bowman would be best from a chariot. Suggestions welcome.


  1. What a great idea! :D

  2. That bear chariot is very cool! I think the polar bear/snow base idea is pretty good as well...especially seeing as the chariot has sliders instead of wheels.

    I've also just become a follower (call me a damned Padawan once...and I'm off ;) ).

    Great stuff as usual but a distinct lack of Grymn lately.

  3. Its just all grymn with you Inso isn't it.

    Ok ok i'll think about doing some more grymn stuff ... probably over christmas.
