Subject Matter: Horns of Hashut - Human Slaves

This contest is open both to non-miniature art, and miniature entries, both painted and unpainted.

This time around we want you to draw, paint, sculpt or convert an artwork, sketch, miniature or diorama which in some way feature one or more Human followers of Hashut or Human slaves to Chaos Dwarfs.

You could tackle this theme in a myriad ways. For instance, you could depict one or more Human Marauders who have adopted some strange version of Hashut worship from contact with Chaos Dwarfs, in a weird show of an insular tribal religion starting to proselytize (as actually happened during real Antiquity). Or you could let us see lowly Human thralls whipped in the mines as they toil away their wretched lives. Or you could depict the Horns of Hashut Warcry warband. Or you could go for Human mercenaries in the pay of the Dawi Zharr. Or Human mutants herded before the battleline of Chaos Dwarfs and Hobgoblins. Or Hobgoblins eating a Human alive. Or Chaos Squats and their Human followers, slaves, allies or mercenaries. Or anything else entirely, as long as it involves Humans and Chaos Dwarfs or Hashut. Let your imagination run wild and be welcome to surprise us all with weird interpretations!

Now this is a surprise subject to me. Wasnt expecting this. I like it though. :ok_hand:

The big decision for me will be base size…20mm or 25mm. Hobbo proxies or orc /marauder proxies i guess

Very interesting topic! I look forward to seeing what we all come up with !

Mmmmmm surely the theme is interesting, even tho doesn’t get along with my representation of CDs, will see if I can come up with something as it doesn’t sound like my cup of coffee

Surely your CDs have something to do with humans? Such as human footstools if nothing else? :smiley:

@MichaelX : Diabolical AND something else. The more the merrier, I say!

Its probably safe to say noone yet has humans in their chaos dwarf armies so its definitely an unexplored area. We just have to work out how to tie them in to our existing armies and how poorly equipped and undernourished they may or may not be

I didn’t expect this task at the AC at all! Humans? As servants of Hashut? I have no idea at all at the moment. :thinking:

At least you can use them as Hobgoblin proxies. :tonguewink:

@Reaver Hilarious!

For this one, I have absolutely NO idea, and nothing jumps out. I do have a barbarian army that has been languishing in the wings for several years… but still not sure what to do with it. I guess I’ll have a look at my KoW army options, perhaps something will pop out for which I can use pesky daikini to fill the roll.

Will have to think deeply on it…

The only type of competition I am able to enter something has returned, huzzah! Even two months this time? Luxury! Everything I do is inspired by actual historical references, yet it never occurred to me to attempt actual humans. I have various vague ideas but I need to let them sit for a few days. But I will participate if time allows!

@Reaver : Hilarious! I am honoured. Adding that to the 40k memes people have made about my stuff. :smiley:

@Bolg , @Vapo , @Lord_of_Uzkulak & @Hashoooot may all be interested in this contest, by the way.

Horns of Hashut type models not really my thing.

Let me know when we get to monster model painting, as that’s my next project that I’m trying to get myself started on.
