RE: Golden Hat #16Nicodemus 11-20-2011

Yes, this may well be a difficult GH in some regards, although the lack of a defined look may be freeing some some entrants as well. One thing I wasn't crazy about with the K'daai artwork in the book is that it looks too much like a Great Taurus with cracked molten skin and not much like a firey daemon. Not to mention their fluff says that they're armoured and there's no hint of that in the concept art.

If you're finding it really hard to get started with a concept you can check these out for some inspiration:
K'daai models
Dwarf Steam Golem
Daemoneater, Golem and Kollossus Gallery
Daemon-powered Golem
Inferno Golems ideas

I agree that timing this time of year may be difficult.  It is what it is.  At a minimum entrants have 6 weeks to create a single model on a 40 or 50mm base in order to enter the contest.  Another factor in regards to the 1-3 models was that some folks may have difficulty settling on a design or a particular look within that 6 weeks.  With the minimum entry at 1 K'daai hopefully nobody is going to feel like they've locked thsemves and their army in with a set look for their K'daai by creating too many models for the GH... although those entrants who are comfortable with their design can create more than 1 to show off some variation.

I'll check on the exact wording of the K'daai Fireborn entry - they count as having Hand weapons, but I believe they are claws as opposed to swords or anything like that.  There aren't any other weapon options or upgrades and there's no flying option.  In regards to it being organic or more mechanical, I think those could work, provided it still looks like a K'daai - which is a fire daemon bound and enslaved to fight for the Chaos Dwarfs.  Their fluff says that they're bound within iron and brass which is emblazoned with runes, so as long as it looks something like that. I don't want to exclude something that has a more mechanical look or more organic bits, I just suggest keeping the theme in mind as it needs to reasonibly represent a K'daai.

I'll post the clarification for the exact wording of their weapon shortly unless someone beats me to the punch.

~N

Update Their weapon is listed specifically as Spite and hellfire which just counts as a hand weapon.  They also have the blazing body special rule which means they radiate immense heat and are effectively on fire... so I guess if there's any organic stuff it would need to look like it works with that rules - i.e. daemonic flesh, etc.
