[Archive] The Great Emissary Exchange - Swap miniatures with fellow members!

MadHatter:

Based on the idea Torn had about a unit, where many people added miniatures and one would win them all aswell as Bloodbeards give-away of one Emissary from his Blooded Horde as a prize for the scribe contest I would propose an Emissary Exchange.

Myself I have now ordered 10 metal axemen to convert into emissaries from the Gorak-Zharr clan and I would like to exchange them with my friends here at CDO. I plan to field them as Ironsworn myself but everyone can naturally use them for whatever they wish.

So, convert/create any number of chaos dwarf emissary models of your own armys colors and style of models and exchange with the others who signed up. Bases would be left black so everyone can get a consistency with the basing.

With the exchange it would be cool with a short backstory about the exchange of diplomats, perhaps a name and short about the clans political motives. It would add alot of flavour to the games, alot of fluff to each participants army and we would game with the strength of the CDO Council pouring down from the frothing mouth of Hashut into our dicerolls.

Participants are welcome to make a post to continously update with their Emissaries and I’ll link it here under participants :slight_smile:

We make Emissaries and trade them with each other!

Welcome aboard! :cheers

Dînadan:



So, there would be 10 spots open to join in, it starts now with a 2 month deadline, so we would all send them out around the 10th of October. Hopefully reaching all participants around X-mas, now wouldn't that be neat!


MadHatter
Surely you mean 10th of December? 10th of October is only a day away :o

Sounds like a nice idea, but unfortunately I won't be able to participate as I don't have the money to buy stuff to convert up or to pay postage to send them out :(

Admiral:

Good idea and good luck! I really have to start focus on models for my own army (which isn’t big enough for normal-sized games) and have no 10 models I could part with for this, so I won’t participate this time around. Also, student economy. Otherwise I’d have joined in. :slight_smile:

Bloodbeard:

It would be possible to do this without a 10 model criteria. MadHatter wants 10. I would be happy to have a mini from his clan and one from Zankos swamp lands. so perhaps only make two emissaries.

Dinadan might not have economy for 10 models. But that shouldn’t stop him from sending one to MadHatter and receiving one in return. Still take part i the fun, but with less money and time.

Alright I'll fix it thus; we make emissaries, as many as we want and then we trade them with each other.

*Removed the dates as this can be an ongoing project
*Removed the slots so anyone can join in at any time

Ill have mine ready as soon as possible :cheers

Zanko:

Ok at the moment I will make 2 emissaries but I’m willing to make more! :cheers

Bloodbeard:

Bloodbeard Emissary Exchange.

I’ll update this post with any deals struck. At this point Daemonsmith Zantromm will send out diplomats to:

  • Gorak-Zharr Clan and MadHatter.
  • The Mighty Lizard King and Zanko.
  • Herby’s New Forces
  • Zarrek the Chosens embassy and TheHoodedMan


I think this is a nice idea and a great way to feel the community. I’ll use the emissaries as something extra in my regiments, as wound counters, turn markers or just innocent  bystanders. But they’ll join every battle!

This is gonna be fun! I’ll try to make the emissaries fit the armies they go to. Already have three specific bits in mind for Zankos.

Edit: And the ambassador going to the mad flying prophet has also popped into my mind. He’s gonna ge great!

MadHatter:

Gorak-Zharr Embassy

I’ll update this post with any deals struck aswell as with pictures of the Ambassadors. At this point the Gorak-Zharr clan is preparing to send Emissaries to:

- Zantromm the Aspiring of the Blooded Horde (Bloodbeard) recieved

- Zagor the Lizard King (Zanko) recieved / sent

- Herby recieved / sent

- Zarrek the shadow born, sorcerer prophet and priest of Hashut (TheHoodedMan) recieved / sent

- Kera Foehunter of Hashuts Cult of Power

- Fuggit Khan recieved

-Nir-Kezhar (Admiral)

Diplomats exchanged with the Gorak-Zharr will earn the ear of His Excellency Klobolg Gorak-Zharr, Voice of Hashut, Son of the Father of Darkness, the Mad Prophet, Guzazi-A-Elgi-Umgi-Dawi-Grobi-Drazhurki-Grumi-Gronti-Drakki-en-Dhaozi, Brass Wings of the Night-Sky, Karugromthi-A-Kalan-A-Gorak-Zharr and First of His Name, through both oath and through service on the battlefield as elite Infernal Ironsworn.

Like Bloodbeard I will also convert the emissaries :slight_smile:

MadHatter:

Following Bloodbeards example I also made a post to continuously update my embassy :slight_smile: I’ll link all such posts to the list of participants!

Zanko:

Zagor the Lizard King will send his emissaries to:

- Zantromm the Aspiring of the Blooded Horde (Bloodbeard)

- Gorak-Zharr Clan (MadHatter)

- Herby

- Abecedar

- Zarrek the shadow born, sorcerer prophet and priest of Hashut (TheHoodedMan)

=> in the moment I’m not sure which models I will use and if they are converted or not. When I’m back at home I must peruse my miniatures and then I will decide!

=> In contrast to Bloodbeards opinion I have no “gazillion kilos of lead” … so I decided to take the miniatures of Titan Wargames to build the emissaries! The idea is also that you can’t see any extreme mutations cause the Frurndar are not very “popular” amongst the CD community! :wink:

Good thing you have just under a gazillion kilos of lead in your collection.

MadHatter:

Aaand the axemen are paid for and on their way :hat off

MadHatter
Haha, you beat even my tournament names and titles for Chaos Dwarf characters! Your is even longer! :cheers

With the move away from 10-warrior format I'll consider joining. I won't promise anything as of now and will have to think about it for a while.

Good initiative and spirit, folks!

General names are enforced in this tournament I'm entering, I don't like being forced so the titles will ever grow with great deeds done in battle :hashut

Sound good Varr'rik, the circle of ambassadors won't be complete without Nir-Kezhar's voice represented.

Abecedar:

I think I’d like to do this, but will have a real good think this weekend.

Abecedar
It would be an honor to exchange diplomats with you Abecedar :)

torn:

I would love to participate. I dont have a lot of time or free space on my workbench right now. So just to get this straight, would the models be of chaos dwarf warriors? so essentially we will all end up with an emmisary unit we can field containing a miniature from everyone army?

My only concern will be postage. I sent a small parcel to bloodbeard this week costing me £3.70. If i was to do that 10 times and get back in return, that unit would have cost me around £5 per model. Im not going to make a big deal as I am fortunate to have a well payed job but I am guessing that this will be out of a lot of peoples budgets.
