I also say the small altar looks better. I don't think being crowded is a problem, though you could free up some space if you were to say that the fire elemental counts as one or both of the acolytes.

RE: JMR's renewed Chaos Dwarf blog - 21 Jun - Altar of HashutThommy H 06-22-2014

Pedantic note about the elemental/K'daai: although the Altar does summon up daemons, etc., the centrepiece of the dais should be the device used to sacrifice the slaves. If there's a pool of glowing lava, victims should be getting thrown into it rather than spirits being summoned from it. The Altar is for killing, the daemons then gravitate to it, swirling around it in the air as the Sorcerer and Acolytes sing their Dirges. So I'd leave it off, personally.

I mean, you can interpret it however you want, but that's what I had in mind when I wrote the rules and background!

RE: JMR's renewed Chaos Dwarf blog - 21 Jun - Altar of HashutFuggit Khan 06-23-2014

I'm going to join the consensus that the smaller altar works better...a smaller altar also lends better to being a pretty cool unit filler too.
And I agree with Bloodbeard...I like the fire elemental size for the altar. But whichever direction you choose, I'm sure based on your past experience of your modeling talents, that this will be a very cool model once all finished Cheers!

Really looking forward to watching the progress on this, I'm glad you shared this with all of us Takes Hat off

JMR's renewed Chaos Dwarf blog - 26 Jun - Altar of HashutJMR 06-26-2014

Progress continues on the Altar of Hashut. I have encased the main body in cheap plasticard. I've built up the sacrificial pool of lava a bit more.

On the backside I've added the rough shape of two pillars. Last Golden Hat I won two classic chaos dwarf warriors (thanks Fuggit!), which I figured would be cool to use as ancient statues.
Although my army is mostly made up out of models with "modern" helmets instead of bighats, I do enjoy reaching back to the classic models. For example, I want my Sorcerer Lords and Bull Centaurs to have a more traditional dress-code: bighats.
I do feel a bit bad about using these models as mere statues, but on the other hand I feel it's a nice tribute to that era.

Here's where the Altar currently stands:


The front two miniatures are still just random stand-ins. The character in the back is a russian-alternative model which I intend to use as a Sorcerer Lord. I think I'd prefer to field the altar with a Pyrophant instead, so I'll look into making the characters swappable.

Thommy's comment made me quickly sculpt up some minor K'daai to circle the altar. They probably need a second pass of green-stuff:



What do you think?

I like them a lot! I think they will certainly add another dimension to the piece. I don't think they need "a second pass of green stuff" though, they look pretty good. If there was any area that maybe could be added to it would be at the head as it seems a little bare.

regardless the project is coming along quite nice!

Cheers,

I agree, the K'daai are looking great, and so is the altar. Now I too feel like hunting down some oldschool dwarf and CD models to use as statues Happy

I think it's wonderful Cheers!
I'm very happy to see some of my old Big Hat warriors being used in such a cool model...I agree that it's a nice tribute to the 4th edition era.
Excellent work so far!  Takes Hat off

Wow, great progress! Everything from layout to WIP K'daai whirlers is very nice. If you manage to add convincing OSL effects from the fire spirits whirling around the altar you'll have a real killer of a killer.

How about adding rivetted iron "bands" of Chaos star spear shapes onto the stone pillars facing the flank of the platform? Or shackles and chains between the slaves' feet in order to create two chain gangs?

I see the pool deck idea wasn't entirely discarded. It looks like a comfy Daemon jacuzzi there. Wink



Will you add something more to the pool or the platform, like runes or trophies on the sides of it? If you're feeling adventurous you could even try your hand at some fresque scenes like those seen on the FW Bull Centaurs' armour. Bonus points for making the pool an octagon shape. Thommy will have to include pictures of this altar in the updated army book.

It's about time this log got the stars it deserves.

RE: JMR's renewed Chaos Dwarf blog - 26 Jun - Altar of HashutJMR 06-27-2014

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

I am absolutely going to include OSL effects. I'm looking for good opportunities to add OSL while building this thing all the time. Hopefully I can add them convincingly without completely overwhelming the model.

I'm also going to add various detailing to the altar itself. I'm thinking some kind of face (possibly a bull's) on the ramp at the front.
The sides of the altar will have a simple decoration.
The pillars will get some sort of emblem too. I think I'll have to stea....draw some inspiration from Skink's designs or from some old banner designs.
Chains on slaves are definitely in too. I just hope I have enough chains left...
For the "floor" of the altar I'm thinking large obsidian/black marble tiles.
I have tried frescoes before, but that wasn't such a success.

@Admiral What a lovely picture! Did you just quickly draw that up?

Not so much, to be honest. I've spent my hobby time crafting things for D&D (I was the GM). That was pretty fun to do.

I've also done a bit of mucking around with Song of Blades and Heroes. A nice and simple skirmish game. I highly recommend it. It's core rules are simple enough that I consider trying it out with my 6-year old nephew. At the same time, when you add all the extra "special rules" that you can buy for your models, it becomes an interesting game to play. Quick to play, small game area needed, limited amount of models and you can drink a beer while playing it. Pretty good.
I did use a Chaos Dwarf warband for this, but I didn't paint it up fully. I might go do that one of these days.

I have been getting the modeling-itch again, but I'm not sure I can handle painting 40 rank and file soldiers anymore Shock
