Perfect rendition of Blacklocks and perfect balance between historical reference and the original design angular Dwarf style. As much Middle Earth as Middle Earth can be.

So, here we have a pair of Pelishtim, er, Blacklock warriors. :D (Big Grin)  Can't say no really, since the Dwarves have as much Semetic as Nordic in their background. Why shouldn't a folk of Dwarves living in the East or South take on a Mesopotamian or Assyrian appearance at some point? Considering that the Akkadian-influenced Semetic culture was widespread in the Fertile Crescent and lasted thousands of years, the continuity (and stone-working) ought to support a Dwarven culture dressed up that way.

It could do so, yes. I kind of want a set of Blacklocks of Akkad as minis now.

I hadn't always thought that Chaos dwarves from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles setting to have taken a really good concept of using an ancient Babylonian/Mesopotamian design aesthetic and ruined it by being very... cartoony. I love seeing fantasy dwarves- ESPECIALLY Tolkien's - being shown using a material culture with that aesthetic in a more historically authentic way. It's such a natural connection - art from that period and region with the prominent, tightly coiled beard-locks immediately brings bearded dwarves to mind. Love your medium too, it brings to mind classic historical illustrations like from an Osprey book. Can't wait to get deeper into your gallery!

Yeah right? Dwarves and Assyrians/Babylonians are just a natural connection.
Thanks my friend, I agree with you Warhammer didnt do a very good job with those, athough its a good idea.
I am a big fan of Osprey books, so thanks for that in particular.
Cheers
