Okay, so you've got the ramrod, the fuse lighter and the bucket, where's the other two? The cannon ball and the one with the gun loading thing? Since you've got the fuse lighter I can understand the one with the cannon ball being missing but he does need to get the next one ready. You do know this was originaly a 5 crew model, right?

Yup, I know. It's a quite hard story. To keep it short:

Bought a lot of Dwarf figures from some guy for bargain.
There were two siege guns, two flame cannons and one organ gun with it.
FCs had full crew. The siege guns and organ gun combined, had eight crew. I even had one Dwarf swivel gun crewmember with them. I sold one siege gun, a flame cannon and an organ gun, and I choose to keep these crew.

Perhaps am I going to buy the other two crewmembers some other time, but since you use three crewmembers in game, I'm not going to for now.

The crewmen are easy to find so wont be a problem mate.

I never knew they only allowed 3 crewmen per machine in a game, bloody rules and regulations !!!!  I feel sorry for all those people who have made a large base containing all the crew as I bet GW wont allow the 2 extra to be ignored in a tourney.

That came in in 4th edition. In 1st to 3rd warmachines varied in power based on the number of crew required to operate them (from 2-10 crew, and yes, I once fielded a 10 crew rock lobber in a siege game).

Dwarfs can add an engineer (basicaly like a champion but for warmachine crews) to take it up to 4 crew (with some amazing bonuses) and then you might be able to add a second higher level engineer hero to bulk it out to 5.

Not sure about filling out the goblobber's 6 crew 'though :(.

Now, now! We don't hate GW. But it is another reason to mock them for their money-grubbing inconsistency :D

Sorry guys, haven't looked on this forum in ages, mainly because I was (and still am) quite busy with school.

To tell you the truth; I've nearly done nothing to this figure. I was too late for the OPC I wanted to use it for, and never started painting it again afterwards. New pics will just show you some minor updates, probably.

Dwarf Cannons with 5 crew? Hmm, it's possible, yeah. 3 Crew + Engineer + Master Engineer. That'd mean it does (if any of you actually play warhammer :) ) D6 Wounds and .. you can re-roll some dice or so, I never added an engineer to cannons, really. Aside from having 5 crew, of course, which is a nice advantage as well.

I'm two weeks from vacation, after that I'm going to London/Nottingham for three days (Warhammer World  :icon_w00t:), and after th├ít, I'll have a whole load of time for warhammer, which will incluse this project.
