As Fightin' Fungi nears completion, we start thinking of future projects. One will be to produce unique dwarves for the SBH world. There will be many factions and some will be very unconventional compared to the typical 'Norse' stereotype.
One faction is the outcasts, Dwarves who have been expelled from their underground homes and mining lifestyle. They now live above ground and could be consider 'barbarians'. Many shave their beard and hair as a symbol of their status as outcasts.
Below is a sculpt for this faction. I would very much appreciate feedback. Can you accept a departure from the established cliche? Do dwarves need beards to be a dwarf? Is this something you would want in your collection? All feedback is valuable.
