I want to join this but I don't know if my table can take another half finished project, I just don't seem to have the time as of late.

But this really does seem like fun to me, and I think I can work with something else I all ready had in mind

Plus I can use it as a diorama after was as well, great concept Merlin

Count me in for yet another attempt

I've got an idea, but I need to get my battlewagon riveted this week. I'm hoping to start on it this week. Can you remind me when the deadline is?

I started building a fighting pit but it sort of evolved into something different, I am not sure I will have an eligible entry but will see how it goes.

@vik: looking forward to the WIPs!!
@LDD: welcome mate! Btw, what do you mean "use it as a diorama later"....? You can enter the whole thing as a diorama or as a terrain piece, you choice
@mars: Nice to have you here too! The original deadline is oct 15th, but if one or two entrants need another two or three days, I can extend it....
@bruticus: I know that problem! lol. But the range of things I'll accept is quite broad (you are supposed to be creative after all!) just try to make it look like some sort of fights are held there regularly !

Some wip's... the aegis defense line that will form the "Octagon".







Those will form the barriers to the pit, with the spikes and stuff facing inward towards the combatants. Next step is to mold a floor, and make a simple terrain piece I can fit everything into.

The 15th of next month is doable, I think. The painting will be the tough part (for me). Getting excited about some ideas though. Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.

The one contestant is the psycho with a knife in the first row He's painted up but the other guy wielding a pole with concrete on it is not finished yet.



...however... I did just receive a forgeworld ogryn in the mail, also wielding pole with concrete on it. ...hmmm....

and some of these other cultists could be audience members goading them on.

thnx, yeah I for one am glad GW made some mad max style minis to work with. But also some of them cam out with a nice "Nazi Berzerker" look to them.

Yeah, I think I have to do the ogryn now.

It will be a diorama but what I want to do (for a long time) will take to long for this comp, but the basic idea I can ( hopefully ) get done in time.

Plus it will help me finish some other started projects

I dont want to give to much away, plus I want to do a good job on this as I have been thinking about it for a while.

MrMerlin you are a star for getting me of my arse and starting it

I dont care if I don't get it done in time as it is a project I really want to do, so it is great motivation.

What you doing then Vik

thnx man. I'll get more done by next week probably.

Nah, I think the ogryn will just go against psycho . Unless I feel like making a chaos-crazed halfling contender. Not sure where to find the model tho, and don't know if I feel like sculpting him.

Firstly great paint job on your cultists Love the idea of a chaos halfling do that you must do that

I want to build some chaos ratlings trying to figure out the parts is a bit of a nightmare

They are abhumans, so yes. They are hobbits with lasguns, except for one crucial difference... they have beards. Whether this is a purposeful change on the part of GW or just a product of their ignorance will never be known. The Tau race just seems to lack psychic affinity, or chaos hasn't focused on them yet, who knows. they might have the same gene as human psychic blanks.

@Dirty Dog

I don't think I cud use the GW models without almost completely resculpting them. third party stuff is mostly little dudes in cloaks... I'd want one bare chested, pudgy and screaming with knife or other chaos implement in hand. For cultists you do do little ones with gasmasks and a pistol...maybe using ratlings bodies... might actually not be so hard.

EDIT: what do you think of this guys: Titus the psychotic halfling

Maede... yes... that lil fighter would be a good choice... and a tough nut to crack for that ogryn!

and yes i know that they would be bound to be as easily corrupted as men... but well... was making a point around frodo and such likes

I would think any one can be corrupted by chaos, you just have to find what is their poison, plus I don't build to GW rules just what I like.

Plus if I was to use a codex I would use IG and just build them as traitors, problem solved.

That little dude will work a treat, needs a little work mind maybe a gas mask pulled back on his head and bit more belly, other wise good sculpt.

already ordered him.

Might get a gasmask head, or if the size fits maybe use a WGF stormtrooper helmet. And I will replace at least one knife, and the scabbards on his back, probably with some kind of backpack/airsupply or some such.

if you can... get those gasmasks IG got ...


and you are set... would be a shame to replace that head...

   
Made in gb

Replace one knife for a meat cleaver, second build the scabbards on his back into sawn of shotguns.

Sculpt a gas mask on to the top of his head, the face looks pretty good not use maybe add a scare or 2.

Good I know but the raised gas mask would look great as well think about it
