Welcome to Librarium Online!
Has anyone seen any alternative to GW's non-existing chaos bsb on foot? I've look around a bit and only found gamezones standardbearer. My own idea for a bsb is using Crom the conquerer and then smacking a banner on him, either on his back or in his hand, dunno yet. So, anyone know of any alternative?
Well, whenever I'm not using him in my lists, I use Wulfrik as my BSB. He has a pair of short poles on his back with rags and skulls on them.
Otherwise, the Exalted Champion bearing the pair of axes lends himself well to a BSB. His stance has his right arm tucked in, so that can be carrying the banner and a weapon in his out-stretched left arm, or vice-versa. The best part of it all is that neither hand comes attached to the model, so you only need to clip off a suitable banner-wielding hand and attach it to the wrist.
The original BSB for chaos came from the Armybox set for last edition. Other than that, conversion time!
Converted Crom the Conq pretty easily. Lop off the axe held in right hand and rest a banner just under his shield. I then stuck a Lord Helm on him to differentiate him a little and it works nicely.
I have question, i want to make BSB on foot, I took baner from Chaos Knights (the one in front of shield) and want to put it on nice warrior/exalted etc.
But starting chaos army and dunno which will fit best - any idea?
I'm about to follow a suggestion made a few months ago and take a chosen command box to create a BSB on foot and a couple of exalted. It won't clash with my chosen because I am also stealing the conversion idea of chaos knight bodies on warrior legs for them. This conversion has the bonus of reducing the amount I have to work with metal minis. This is a very good thing as I'm not very confident working with it yet.
I've used the standard "Champion of Chaos" model, cut off the axe from the right hand and pinned the marauder horseman banner to it. Works and looks pretty damn fine.
