    Banner of the Gods?

    Now, we've all discussed the potency of this thing, how to use it, what to mount it's user on, and how great it is over all; but what about how it should look? Modeling it, painting it, and how big it should be... So, would you model and paint it as a portal to the realm of chaos? Would you adorn it with the marks of the gods? Seeing as the only description in our book is it was made from Daemon bone, it's very open to discussion, and since i will soon be modeling/painting one, i'm wondering what everyone's thoughts are on it.

    Giv'r.

    p.s. If this should be in the Modeling or painting section go ahead and move it, but i figured since its 100% WoC specific it could go here.

    I've got two Armies with it.
    One army i've got it as a Big banner with the Crucified Damsel on it, It's more of a fluff thing than the actual banner of the gods. The banner has been in my Army after their first game so i can see it more as a holy totem of the Army and the Lords pledge to have vengence on the Bretonian Lord who betrayed him (My lords an old Bretonian Knight)


    As for the other army i went for the Defiler chaos star. It's big, It's pointy and it's a big Chaos star. what more can you ask for? I've painted that a black gloss. Who says deamon bone has to be white?

    I've thought about it too.

    It HAS GOT to be just huge. Like 5 models wide. I'm going for a (Chaos) Black banner with the 4 symbols of the Chaos Gods. It'll be screaming "stubborn/terror!!!" all over the place.

    I'm going to get even more serious (or am I) here and say that a big banner like that could even have a real psychological effect on an opponent. Always seeing that huge banner in the middle of the table will make it seem like its genuinly unbeatable, and make this opponent avoid it/consider it/fear it in a manner that he shouldn't.

    Yeah, I'm tripping. But aren't we all?

    Sculpt it to look three dimensional. Teeth coming out of the banner's cloth.

    That sounds like an awesome idea, i'm just not to sure my sculpting skills are anywhere close to what i would need to do it.
