Beerstone Dwarves, part 1

The next several posts will show my existing dwarves, starting with those of the Beerstone kingdom.

This first picture shows some of my older dwarf miniatures. I'm not even sure of the manufacturer of some of these. From left to right, the king's fool, a bear, King Zurik Frostbeard himself, Mrs. Frostbeard?, and the royal wizard (he is an old Citadel dwarf from back in the day when there were dwarf wizards in the GW "world").
The rest of the dwarves is this post are from Games Workshop, unless otherwise noted.

Longbeards, these are old veteran dwarves. I made the shield bosses from various plastic bits from GW's boxed set of plastic dwarves. I also changed the heads of some of the weapons, using weapon heads from the plastics. I find the plastic miniatures too fiddly to assemble, but the sets are a great source of bits for conversions.
They are standing on a dwarven throne room I made from HirstArts blocks.
Various dwarven heroes and heroines. I haven't named most of them, but the fourth one from the left, the white-bearded fellow with the huge axe, is GW's White Dwarf (at least one of the incarnations in metal of the dwarf who represents GW's magazine, also called "White Dwarf"). I'm not sure if the female dwarf next to him is a GW miniature (I suspect she isn't, but can't remember where I got her). The female dwarf on the far right is Goldilocks, daughter of King Zurik Frostbeard.
Assorted dwarf master engineers and runesmiths.
