The War Altar of Morr (or maybe the Morr Altar?)
So, last week I promised you some more photos of the War Altar. Well, here they are.
Constructed with parts from an Arcane Fulcrum, a Garden of Morr, two War Altars, and ten Flagellants, this things weighs in pretty heftily on the "Oh my goodness, I spent how much on this?" scale of things. Not to worry though, I'm really happy with it : )
The wings are from the War Altar kit, and if you look closely you can see the names of some of the Empire gods on there, including my favorite - Morr!
The base is made from two of the 100x100mm Temple bases from Dragon Forge, and the chains attaching the flagellants to the big hunk o' wood are also from Jeff. Thanks for your sponsorship of this project!
Using Flagellant bodies and "plague Doctor" style heads I sculpted (as had cast), I added another five men to get this beast of a thing to move. I may eventually go back and add a few more.
You may have noticed all the open hands on the "pushers". They came from the "pullers". I had to clip nine of the ten open hands off the guys in the stocks, and replace them with fists. That was fun, I can tell you. Here's a shot of the guy with the one remaining open hand, I like to think he's waving to the kids in the crowd this thing no doubt attracts.
In other news, this blog is only 29 followers away from cracking the 1,500 mark. That sounds like a nice milestone to put together some kind of giveaway. Well, let your friends know about my blog, and when we crack that 1,500, I'll give some cool stuff to you folks who enjoy my hobby stuff each week.
