[Archive] K'daai models

ryanamandaanna:

So… after Zhatan87 let us take a glimpse at some rules yesterday, my question is if there are currently any models out there that would fit the description of these troll-size bound fire daemons? I’ve been searching the interwebs and haven’t come across many suitable candidates…

Thommy H:

Pretty much everything in the Warmachine range?

Grimstonefire:

They would be a pretty good bet, though watch the prices as most of them will probably be more expensive than WF. :wink:

ryanamandaanna:

Some Trollkins looked like they might fit the bill, unless I wanted to go the cryx route… Thanks for the suggestion! :smiley:

zhatan87:

Leaving the GD and talking with a friend, we were thinking about juggernaut with minotaur head.
But as I didn’t read the Kdaai fluff, I don’t know if the Kdaai fireborn should look like to that.
Another idea is minotaur with a demoniac look. The cheapest way I think, as FW seems to stuck to the bull theme.

Great taurus without wings, and with green stuff should be a good Kdaai destroyer.
But, as FW produces many monsters, and are really good in making them, maybe you may wait for the official models (if they do them of course) and their fluff.

Grimstonefire:

I must admit I really wasn’t expecting the K’daai to be on 4 legs, which they will be if they are based on the art.

These without the riders are probably the cheapest you’ll find (especially from a discount store). Just trim off the nose spikes and add some horns.

zhatan87:

Other ideas :

The cheapest : warhammer quest plastic minotaur.

Cheap, enough to be converted/damaged to look more daemoniac.

It seems pretty easy to make lava effect on the actual GW minotaur, lava flow between their muscles, as their muscles are huge.

Beast of Albion painted with lava effect.

dromar:

I’ve got a better idea, check it out:

Grimstonefire:

That rackham fire elemental is quite nice actually

Zuh-Khinie:

Too bad it’s so hard to find one these days (for a decent price that is)…

Alfract:

I was assuming many people would be using the inferno golems that they made for the IndyGT list to represent these models

aka_mythos:

Which of the two K’daii are we talking about? The “destroyer”… or the basic one? Are they both bull shaped?-because I thought its only the “Rare” on that is.

wallacer:

A Reaper Krung beast might do the job.

Always makes me think of the repeated lyrics in this song:

RTMaitreya:

I’m going with an Araby theme for my Chaos Dwarfs, so I will plan to do Kdaai as ogre-based Efreet. An ogre top, flame bottom, might be a nice time to try out the clear plastic resin and lighting effects.

Ooooooh.

Yeah, too bad I don’t have time for them apples.

Smog:

Sorry for the thread necromancy (does it count if its on page 1?), but I was wondering if you guys had any pictures of the different Warmachine warjacks next to warhammer miniatures. I know they are different sizes and I want to get ones that are about ogre sized.

Vogon:

I spotted this and thought with a suitable paintjob it may be suitable for a Fireborn.

Not sure how big it is though.

Sorry for the eBay link.

Its around as tall as an ushabti, If a little thinner.

Time of Madness:

Any type of fire elemental will work as well. D&D has a few of them that would work.
