Those are some great Altars!

Let me show you mine...


Here are a couple of shots from different angles...








The small flags on the side really help 'brighten' the thing up... They also help showing his Imperial Holyness's allegiance to Stirland. I've also pinned the model to the base (not really optional, the model is really heavy). Quite happy with the result (both in converting and painting)...



More pics of the Altar (and the rest of my army) can be found  on my plog on Warseer: http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=287817&page=35
My bases are for sale/trade! Interested? Hit me with a PM!

I gotta say, I've followed that crazy religious steampunk empire thread over on the "other" site from damned near the beginning, and it's honestly one of the most excellently executed and inspirational armies I have ever seen!

Like Ivimotorola, I made copies of some of Your units to "borrow" the ideas... This blog is great, really big source of inspiration. Shame I didn't decide on steampunk look for my army... But still there are many conversions worth copying, If You don't mind  :icon_wink:

Great work, both of you!

I ended up redoing my previous War Altar of Manann, and now have this one.

Here's my first attempt at both scratch building and photographing and posting  an image.
Sorry the the photo is a bit duff.

Some of you may have seen a few of my units around, but if not, my empire army is themed around various historical and quasi historical fanatical groups / conspiracy theorys; including Templars, the Illuminati, Masons, Jesuits, Rosicrusicans  etc.

For my Grand Theoginist / war altar, I based the project on Peter the Hermit, a monk who lead c.10,000 civillians to their death outside Istanbul, trying to get to the first crusade.

The figure is a Frateris Militia, with a shepard's crook added. the extant rosary was a great bonus, and I really like the idea of him him raising morale and helping rallying through fear and whacking his flock with a stick

I did this probably 10 years ago, and I just happened to have the crucified skeleton piece from an old blister pack. The sculpting on it is pretty crude, and I think its probably about time that I replace that part with a new cross, and a better sculpted skeleton.

gosh, golly gee whizz, so many good ideas so close together! You all are to be congratulated. Now I am in a quandry over which one to try to copy first.......maybe the steam altar, god so little time.  I am begining to hate new ideas (not really) I see things I want to copy, I see things that I want to try, I see the clock ticking away the minutes and I see Morr creeping up behind me. Ah youth, where did you go? steveb

Cheers, Kirgan. :)

Daftpunky: I really like the look of yours... not sure what it is about it, but even with the giant statue, there is a bit of simplicity overall to it that I like. Curious to see how it shapes up under the brush.

The row boat is hillarious... even if its not meant to be funny, I find it so... but not in an insulting way. I appreciate the creativity. :)  Same goes for the Organ. i'd love to see a mad organist at it, arms akimbo, hair flying, etc. Its a little over the top size-wise, but since it makes sense for the subject matter, it doesn't seem to big to me like some of the larger, more over the top concepts start to. 

This is a pretty great thread, no matter which I like and which don't excite me as much. . . its reassuring and exciting to see people doing their own thing in a million different ways.   :::cheers:::
