Welcome to Librarium Online!
While there is no warshrine model or any strict facts on what one must look like, it seems most people have theirs as two horses pulling an altar.
What have you guys done for your warshrines? Can I see some pics of them? Also, is there a base restriction on the shrines or what base size should they be put on?
I was thinking of using one based on a chaos terminator sorceror (without guns though) and add some WHFB bits. I think this would justify for the armor & ward save, high stats and slow movement. In addition, the psychic powers of the sorceror would justify the "Giver of Glory" ability. If he was mounted on a 40x40 base, would this be allowed? Does he seem too small for a warshrine or would you guys allow it?
Fluff wise he could be like a terminator who teleported to the wrong planet but has been stuck there for awhile so he has run out of ammo/power and therefore has ditched his 40k like weaponry. However, as he has not built up his reputation nor have knowledge of the wastelands he is unable to provide leadership to become a champion of his own army.
For my warshrine I wanted to do something besides a converted chariot, and a brief time spent collecting models for a never-was Lizardmen army helped me come up with this:
However you decide to make yours, my personal opinion is that they should be mounted on a 50 x 100 base. The army book states that the warshrine is "not truly a chariot, steed, or creature..." For Kelly to include that statement means that an uninitiated person might think the shrine follows the rules for chariots, an assumption probably drawn from its base size. Since most chariots are mounted 50 x 100, that's the size I chose for my shrine.
Corpse cart model is a good starting point
I'd second thatCorpse cart model is a good starting point
And now to erase your memory of this entire conversation.
