War shrine I've been working on, just waiting on my forgeworld brass khorne symbols to deck it out and then i'll be undercoating it and painting it. Conversion wise the only thing left is to greenstuff and neaten it up.

C&C most welcome!

Apart form the difference in material colour (which will go when it is painted) it looks like one coherent piece.

My only issue is with the hard edge on the pile of body parts inside; it would probably be easier to bring the rest of the bed up with green stuff rather than try to carve the edge of the pile back to where the actual parts end.

Overall, it is different form the original model without looking overdone.

The bed inside will be filled with blood which will overflow out the front/back, so which is why I haven't worried about doing that or the Khorne symbol properly, I'll update it once I'm done, thanks for the C&C.

Here is the start of the overflowing blood, once I finish the surrounds on the lower half, I will add water effects mixed with black and red ink to get a really good blood effect which I will pour roughly over the skulls and the blood there to 'smooth' it out and make it more gorey, this is just the interim, I'll try and keep you all updated! :). The blood I did using a hot glue gun, greenstuff and pva glue. Greenstuff to make a layer to help get it to flow where I want it and stick, then the hot glue to get the sheets, finally pva to smooth it off a bit.

Pretty cool, curtains kind of throw things off a bit though. Khorne is not known for its beautiful luxury items.

the blood will continue along in a line across the base soaked into the snow

yeah the curtains i wasn't sure of, but given the hassle to remove them i gave up in the end and went with them there
lol

Khorne is more than just frothing spatter; otherwise he would be fatally weakened by all the ranged weapons out there.

Depending on your conception of the psyche of your WoC you could Khornify curtains with either:
(i) martial pride - they are made from the banners of fallen foes
(ii) trophy gathering - they are made form the skin of fallen heroes, adding their prowess to the shrine

Or maybe they are there to hide the centre of the shrine form the unworthy; akin to the curtains before the Ark of the Covenant in the First Temple.

Epic image dump now, the carriage, rider etc are nearing completion, they just need to be based and the daemonic steed pulling the contraption needs to be painted.

personally, i feel like the bone / skulls could do with a little more highlighting. the warrior on the top looks really sharp, sir. overall, a really excellent model - very imposing; it'll have a great presence on the table top! :grin:

Thanks, unfortunately the snow doesn't show up properly in pictures, but it's quite thick, about 0.5 cm or so, I added some blood splatter/spray afterwards lol
