Subject Matter: Bull/Boar Centaurs!

For this contest we want you to enter with anything involving Boar Centaurs, Bull Centaurs or any other Chaos Dwarf Centaur types you can imagine!

The theme is wide. If you want to model and paint Boar Centaurs being bred and trained by Thymbrin Snakebeard in his mad laboratory workshop, then go for it! If you want to build a diorama of Bull Centaurs sacrificing screaming slaves to the Father of Darkness in pools of molten metal, then by all means do so. Enter anything from a single miniature, to an entire army of Centaurs. You can enter duelling pieces, where a Bull Centaur fights an enemy, or even have foes dragging a dead Chaos Dwarf Centaur as a trophy. If you want to include slaves and underlings and other random types surrounding your Centaurs, then do so. The sky is the limit.

You can of course make mechanical, daemonforged or rider cavalry counts-as versions of Bull and Boar Centaurs.

Keep it as simple or as complicated as you like. Let your imagination run wild!

If you are unsure if your entry will fit the subject matter, please contact @Admiral and he’ll sort it out with the rest of the Staff.

Basing is unrestricted and up to your discretion. You may include plinths and display bases if you want. You may include fancy backgrounds. We want to encourage the creation of beautiful models and modelling scenes, not hamper it.

Specifics
Subject: Bull/Boar Centaurs
Bases: Up to your discretion.

Thats a quick turn around admiral, well done!

Id like to see fuggit khan enter this one as i know he doesnt like centaurs, maybe he can create something he likes enough that he wont set it alight afterwards!

Originally, I wanted to skip the next contest but this is seriously tempting. Dammit, can’t you do less interesting subjects?

This is going to be fun. Can’t wait to see what everyone come up with.

Added a line to the rules that was intended to be in there from the start, but was forgotten in the flow of writing:

You can of course make mechanical, daemonforged or rider cavalry counts-as versions of Bull and Boar Centaurs.

And yes, seeing @Fuggit_Khan tackle this again would be nice. He’s already graced us with some neat A7Vs during a previous contest. Perhaps other visions for Bull Centaurs remain to emerge from that big hat-endowed mind of shiny and chrome, and Noble Hobgoblins over everything else? :smiley:

Oh wow…

I think I’ll actually go for an entry on this one since I’m just about to start painting Bull Centaurs for my army!

Cool contest! :sunglasses: If I had known that earlier, I would have chosen something else for the last AC … :thinking:

It couldn’t have been known earlier, I’m afraid. For the first time in a long while, I opened the contest folder and saw that this upcoming competition had no theme planned beforehand. So I checked previous contest themes for something useful in armies we haven’t had in a while, and came to think of all the varied Centaur entries in the recent Artisan’s Contest. We even had a Scorpion Centaur! That decided it, really. :tongue:

I get it, you just want to see me work and sweat! :sob:

Does a female centaur breast feed young centaurs by tit or teat? Confusing…

3 Likes

Why not both?

This calls out for modelling action!

…and this sounds like just the thing I might sculpt for casting in the distant future.

We had some great centaurs in the last contest, would definitely like to see some more. There was the Blubberborne, Boar Centaur with Decimator Bow, Chaos Dwarf Behemoth (Powered by Centaur), Scorpion Centaur, Death Roller (Powered by Centaur), and Furrigan Four Feet and the Boary Boys. With the necromancer we could have undead centaurs, with the Snail Chariot we could have a Snail Centaur, with the Giant Fire Newt we could have a Newt centaur with two upper bodies instead of heads. Or something completely new and different. So many great possibilities.

Epic, I do have some BCs I need to get done… perhaps the time is nigh!

Even though I really, really don’t like centaurs (or fauns, satyrs, etc) I am looking forward to what people come up with.
Not every GH can have the Noble Hobgoblin as its subject
:grin:
@Zoddtheimmortal
Hah!
Sorry, not likely gonna happen.
You’ll see me walk on the moon and bring peace to the Middle East before I make a centaur.
A Hobgoblin Khan on a wolf is more my style :hob02:
But again, I’ll be keeping a close eye on the entries :+1:

I was thinking of weird things like a ill treated centaur ridden by a hobgrot. Depends which you hate the most
