Plunder for the Ironclad Fleet [Dec 12 2023 - Pa Rum BumBumBum]

Definitely one of my favorites…somehow I completely missed the rock lizard. Kudos to you for the Dark Souls influence.
And combining miniatures from different CDO sculptors is a wonderful idea.
Keeping it in house!
Super nice entry!


Me like Fuggit, I missed the rock entirely, yet for the composition and the scheme, as I saw it I knew it was your and that got my 2nd certain vote after Deded s one.

Awesome mix of all the CDs sculptors in 1 entry! Well done man!


Im also guilty of missing the rock lizard and walruses. Very nice all the same.
Great unit filler for acolytes of hashut!


Lovely sculpting work on the rock lizard, and fantastic composition and paintjob! Excellent compination of sculpts and parts.


Thanks all! It’s lovely to work with community designed minis (and mini-minis). Excited for the bastards project to take off so I can finally give something back.


I cannot believe I missed the Walruses!

Fantastic palanquin, fantastically painted


I have to admit THIS is my favourite entry for Golden Hat. Awesome mini by @Fabelzel and amazing basing and palanquin.
Love the paint job, everything! :cd1990:


Have you any plans to build a unit of acolytes of hashut around this petrified sorcerer?
I think only zanko has covered this unit type, at least that i know of…

Not sure what I’ll use him in yet. Eventually I’d like to cover that unit


woooow. so smart way to have a palanquin without a huge base.


This may well be my favourite thread. Chaos dwarf related or otherwise.


My first Lamassu! I have to say this model from @oldschoolminis is an absolute behemoth. Sitting on a 50mm x 80mm base, it will surely outweigh almost anything in my predominantly resin/plastic chorf collection. I’m happy to have a chance to work on this lovely centerpiece and look forward to getting some paint on it!

I made an attempt at a new lava splash technique that uses thin plastic melted over a candle. Tutorial from here modified since I didn’t have the correct water effects. I let some pva glue 75% dry before applying it and moving it around a bit for texture. Hoping this turns out decent after I chuck some paint at it.

Couldn’t resist one small Reaver familiar.


Looks amazing so far. The lava splash effect looks awesome (may have to try that), and love the tiny kraken/octopus at the back of the base. What a brute of a model! Look forward to seeing it painted!


Awesome work on that base! Also, love how you keep churning out your little familiars. I’m sure this is going to look great painted.


Thanks! I enjoy taking trash and trying to make it into something moderately realistic for basing. Kind of a hobby within the hobby for me at this point since I don’t have the living space to scratch the terrain itch often.

Would love to see your take on it combined with your clean OSL. Seems like a great match.

@Reaver I plan to try it. The process looks pretty straightforward aside from the fact that I typically just paint my lava flows on without a ton of texture. Time to up my basing game I think. Cheers,


Certified madness, beware of image dump, forum memes, and silly ideas aplenty. You’ve seen them all before, but now with some colors! The sorcerer prophet’s mechanical palanquin wades amongst his creations, servants, and betentacled friendos. He is the messiah of madness.

Lavalings un-pave the way in front of their sorcerous lord, leveling off any potholes that might impede the mecha-lobster palanquin. Floating not very high the ashen-one keeps a singular eye on them, binding them to their Tjubbly forms. Also seen pissing its way to the front rank is the baby lake-ness monster and one of many dagger tail cancers. Can you count them all in this post?

Speaking of Ashen-one. 4 obscure Fromsoftware references are lead by the Onion Bubs sword bearer. Now that Elden Ring is out doubtlessly I will need to make an Alexander the Warrior Jar, now accepting applications to add to my list for unit number 2. Props to anyone that can untangle the snek ball and figure out which games these are from.

Sharksnik and Gobblar. Pretty sure I have their roles reversed.

Doot Doooot! Spewed the clam as the wheelbarrow wheel squeaked loudly. Woooosh went the jetpack cuttlefish, tentacles flapping in the wind. Boing went the pixar clam… I don’t know what sound bowls with feet make but I like to think of it as either A: the sorcerer’s personal paper shredder or B: some form of memory storage pensieve. Or bowlth… oof move on from that pun and keep reading at your own peril.

Lots of originals here. To think this started as exclusively steampunk familiars. The audacity that I could fathom stopping after creating a daemonic steam hookah. Overkill considering the sorcerer is smoking a pipe as well, doubtlessly convenient having the hookah close by at all times regardless.

Praise the Warlus and accompanying cosplay gnoblars. Hook hand Bottjer and his fragile bird bones… the one that carries that barrel… and the aspirant unmade that’s really self conscious and hiding his nose until the day it gets flayed off.

Last the shackled minders of the bizarre bazaar. Grimly flayed faces for belt buckles, point-ed sticks… they don’t fit in at all but maybe that’s why they fit in. Imagine their sordid painful laughter as they lament their objectively hilarious task. But someone has to keep the warlus lubed and whip that tottering bowl with feet into what little action it can muster.

There’s also a fun spot the Admiralty Minis bits challenge in here. Good luck there’s a few tricky ones.


Amazing update! Love it! My absolute favourite of the completely chaotic unit goes to the onion imp knight with amazing flaming sword. Love the purples and the fire effects. Great job!


These are incredible! Absolutely gorgeous stuff here!


Amzing creativity and imagination. Love it!
