One of the best units for dwarfs in WHFB is the hammerers. They are stubborn, have great weapons, WS 5, St 4, and have the Bodyguard special rule. Unfortunately they are expensive metal models at $25 for 5! So in order to save a little money for my fellow dwarf players, here is a quick tutorial on how to model up some hammers as great weapons for some cheap hammerers as an alternative to sinking lots of money into metal models that are all the same pose and have generally the same looking hammer.
First, take the great weapon axes from the sprue and cut off the axe head while leaving plenty of shaft so you and have what looks like a sledge hammer.
Next you'll need something to make a hammer head with, which can be any shape you can imagine, just so long as it's flat on one end. Here are a couple of shapes I threw together last minute, one from a round 1/4" piece of plastic rod, the other from a piece of square tubing.
