Shar'tor as kdaai destroyerZanthrax 03-31-2017

Greetings bros

Has anyone used the Shar'tor mini as their kdaai destroyer.

I am still playing 8th with my bros so have no need for him in AOS.

He looks big enough but would appreciate your thoughts.

Difficult to contradict Admiral Wink, but he is 100% sure not big enough. He is only slightly bigger than a normal Taurukh and fills a normal 50x75mm base (based mine on such).
On a 100 x 150 mm base he would look very very small.Takes Hat off

Completely agree with this! He would look waaaaay too small on a 100 x 150 base!

RE: Shar'tor as kdaai destroyerTheHoodedMan 04-01-2017

Here`s a pic with the normal Taurukh which is about the size of the FW renders.



Lighting is bad, but you can get the idea. I would say he is a little more massive and a little bit taller, about 10% more size roughly (estimated).

Good to know, I was kind of thinking about getting him as a tauruk.

RE: Shar'tor as kdaai destroyerHorace 04-20-2017

Hmmmmmmm. Hmm. I was going to use him as my Kdaii but perhaps I need to rethink.

He is on a larger Oval base than the Centaurs and Taur'ruk. Do you think it could work with a funky base or really too small?

RE: Shar'tor as kdaai destroyerAdmiral 04-20-2017

Perhaps if mounting him atop a dramatic rock, with fire and Daemons dancing around him? Or with piles of broken enemy corpses around his hooves and around the cliff? Shar'tor is Bull Centaur-sized as well pointed out by TheHoodedMan, but could possibly work as a K'daai destroyer with the right tricks. At least some oldhammer armies use small old monsters on their modern correct bases, and it doesn't look half bad.

Perhaps some rudimentary mock-up trials could tell if it'd work?

Well here it is mocked up on paintshop with the base scaled to the correct 150x100mm. Width-wise I think it looks ok, but that is not really a surprise given it is only going from 70 -> 100mm and he is a bit of a chunky chap.

Length-wise it looks a bit worse, the rear corners I think are the main problem areas. the front will have to be built up anyway due to the rock on his base.

I think he could work well as a Destroyer and his scale is quite nice against my old metal army. I guess the only question is whether to cheat on the base and drop the length to 100 or 120mm or to get imaginative on the modelling

A little shorter base won't hurt much if you deem it best, but why miss out on a good excuse to go to town? Skink's K'daai Destroyer base is a stellar example of all the fun one can have with a big base:

RE: Shar'tor as kdaai destroyerHorace 04-21-2017

That is a pretty amazing base, I am not sure I have the talent to pull that off though Happy

I am having a basing dilemma in general with my Chaos Dwarfs, can't decide whether to match my existing armies or go unique
