I needed a new tune to go 'round and 'round in my brain!
This is actually really catchy, thanks for sharing Ringulf!

Now there's an amusing song! :) Thank you.

If Dwarven women weren't bearded I'd probably have more interest than I do. As it is, my Warhammer Fantasy Battle army is Dwarfs. Whacking great gang of them too...including war machines and indeed, fortresses. ;) Goes way back to Warhammer Siege 3e...the Defense of Caraz Lumbar and the Lay of Quango Lipstrangle. I have three of those old styrofoam Mighty Fortress sets, some heavily modified with hoarding and whatnot. Used to play a lot.

Oh well.

That is so cool! I have always enjoyed the very different Dwarven concepts in Warhammer. And I think that there has been a very nice shift in concept about bearded Dwarven women. The wisp of fluff down the cheek or jawline and the demure beading and curling are not unatractive at all in my line of thinking. but I was never enamored of the whole "Barbie Doll" beauty criteria. I have found greater beauty in women who are both strong and curvacious. However IMHO the insides are always much more of a distinguishing factor than the outsides! :mrgreen:

The option for no beard at all would be nice. I do not recall a single mention of bearded Dwarven women in the Silmarillion, although I do not have it memorized so there might be.

Warhammer Fantasy does have beardless female dwarfs...who are warriors too, rather unlike Tolkiens' works on the matter. Warhammer Fantasy allowed me a kind of outlet for an interest in Dwarves other than the usual sort.
