An Ode to the Asscannon - MadHatter - 05-18-2014 11:44 PM

based on the following thread: http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=14382&pid=236048#pid236048
They'd make splendid magmacannons... Oh how I want what I can't have http://slappingpaint.net/chaos_siege_cannon.html

What a vile and horrid race
that with grins on their tusked face
takes brass that their slaves mined
and shoves it into a Daemons behind
load's it with a cannonball
and regards it the most coveted treasure of all

Hahaha! Good one! You know you're dealing with evil when the enemy does that with their artillery. Cheers!

I'd probably use an asscannon as Dreadquake Mortar or Hellcannon if I was to convert one.

Evil idea

Hey hey hey, how about casting one?

I might be a bit disturbed but I think the flame template would fairly represent something fired from an asscannon

Nice idea, but it's got a catch! I won't promise anything at all, but if I do try to sculpt one and find someone interested in casting and selling it, it will most likely be first in some years time.

The catch is, the asscannon would be visibly based on the old sculpt, but much updated. Think scaly areas, spines and skin texture. Think a much more detailed barrel mouth (perhaps a rune-inscribed metal barrel brutally projecting from the live daemon's torn behind?) and think shackles and chains fettering it to the ground. The Daemon would probably have a muzzle.

It would also have crew without twisted viking knight look, but instead with masks and a hat for the leader, scalemail, leather straps and tools. Or no crew at all for lawyer's reasons.

I'm not sure there'd be much interest in such a model. We'll have to see later on if I indeed try to make one. If I'm to make one for myself I might as well make one for everyone else whilst I'm about it.

The nature of the proctiles can be debated. Wink

I was one of the "lucky"few that got the Zonk cannon... It was terrible and I sold it with a miner loss. still like the consept of a model that links back to the original ass cannon and a 10mm scale model sounds like something that does not take op a lot of space...

i should check this out (when the money ship finally gets here)
