How closely do you have to match pictures of unproduced models. What you like, silhouette, picture, 1:1 replica, quantum duplicate? I ask this as I have been told a chaos altar I made does not look like the doomsday weapon and cannot be used as one.
We stand at the gates of sacrifice ever ready to go through.What do we want? To die only once our goal is complete! What do we ask? That we may only serve!Who are you?We are the Last Remnants,the unfettered soldiers!
The thing with the Warshrine is that it's never had a model so no one has anything to compare it too. Hell it doesn't even have a set base size. It just says 'monster' so thats 40x40mm and upwards.
Anyway, I certaintly wouldn't have a problem if you used something that wasn't like the art work. Aslong as you told me what it was i'd be fine with it.
The way i did mine was to copy the book. Charriot pulled by steeds with warriors walking alongside it as i thought that was quite a cool idea. But theres nothing to say you HAVE to model it like that.
It's chaos at the end of the day so let your imagination run wild. All you need to remember is the Fluff. It needs to be something that attracts the attention of the Gods. It could even be something like a Shrine carrying a huge chunk of warpstone that allows the winds of chaos to blow stronger around your army. Or a really messed up Spawn for Tzeentch or a palenquin of Pleasure for Slaanesh........
PS: Put a picture up of yours so we can see and get a better idea

Doesn't look like one, therefore can't be used....??
That's possibly one of the dumbest things I've heard in months. So long as it looks like it could feasibly be what it's supposed to be (a few guys with a mortar does NOT work for an Earthshaker emplacement, etc...), it's fine.
Heck, there's a guy around here that uses the freaking missile tubes from the Exorcist, modelled into a huge pipe organ to serve as the vox caster for his Guard command section! Doesn't look remotely like a Vox set, but nobody's even thinking about complaining!
Do what looks good. Thats part of the beauty of WH and 40k, the imagry is so varied that you can do almost anything as long as it ties to the army and could be whay you say it is.
Look at the various ideas for the Idol of Gork (or is it Mork?) when GW was doing the Storm of Chaos campaign. Had stuff made from rocks, piles of skulls, wooded structures with glyphs over em, some even carried by giants.
If you think its how that should look then do it, if you opponent dosent like it, find a new oppenemt who is there for fun
