RE: Golden Hat IXTarrakk Blackhand 05-07-2009

I have made my Bull Centaur Battle Standard Bearer @ 3 weeks ago, but haven't painted him. (Remeber my You Tube video?)

I'm not sure why there's a June deadline, but hopefully I can get a digital camera by then and get some good photo's off. At least there's that opportunity!

I might also start another Bull Centaur, but I hate the idea of customizing my last 2 Grudge Ponies as I was going to keep them for a Dwarf Mine I was going to build for some instore gamming. I also guess I'm going to have to write off my last (for sale) box of Dwarf Warriors. Oh well....I think I'm the only guy playing them anyway!Big Grin

@ Clam....I think the best way to answer your contest question is in Danish : Jeg Vill De Ikke! Big Grin

Do this "something completly new" means that I can do something thats not a Bull-body/dwarf torso creature - like boar centaurs, spider centaures ect. - or could I even do some kind of cavalry looking figure - like a dwarf riding a cool monster? as long as I keep it on a 50x25mm base?


The actual theme is a 'bull centaur'.  So a spider centaur does not really fit into that theme as well as something on 4 legs.  A boar is a little more open to interpretation, as some people may feel a lot more comfortable using that as a base for their entry.  I wouldn't want to stop these people from entering if they consider it to be a bull centaur.

A CD mounted on something is not a centaur.  Unless he happens to have no legs, and his mount has no head ... Wink

The 'completely new' part of that was intended to allow people to create a robotic/ daemonic bull centaur etc if they wanted to without feeling that they would not be allowed to enter it.  Some people may do upper bodies with an actual bull head etc.  The main thing I wanted to achieve with this theme is to open it up so people did not feel they HAD to stick to the 'traditional' image we all associate with the Bull Centaurs.

So stick to the 'bull centaur' theme; something involving bulls and preferably on bull like legs.

You could do a spider themed bull centaur simply by doing 4 mechanical legs that ended in spikes.

I have seen a BC lord in the past that was the size of a giant!  Although I increased the base size to allow for scenic bases, I think people should bear in mind that an entry this big may not score as highly as others.

If anyone was looking for inspiration, I just had an idea (not the one I will be using).  What about a Bull Centaur Sorcerer!  It would be considered a themed lord/ hero or a special character.  If you did him rearing up you might even be able to get away with 20mm x 20mm base and treat him as a regular sorcerer to be ranked up.

Hmmm...a reversed Bull Centaur....makes me think of that Red Dwarf episode where The Cat was telling Rimmer that he wanted to meet a Mermaid that had the fish head on top and woman's legs on the bottom because the girl on top, fish body was boring!

Aw this is a tough one.
Hmm... it would give me a chance to try a new take on my bull centaur design, though! ^^

For this one (and maybe more), your entry can be based based on a circular display base if you prefer (up to 50mm), a cavalry base, or maybe even a 20mm x 40mm base (Wink).  


What kind of a base is 20x40mm? Shock

Well there are more ways than one to make a bull centaur... not just deity interventions.... lol.. a nice cow centaur could be so cute...

looking forward to the fun.

It's one that's about 20mm by 40mm. GW don't make one like that of course, but if one were to theoretically come into existence somehow I guess it would be okay.

A cow centaur is simply a female bull centaur and so I think we'll allow it Wink Mind you, we all know that if at least one comes up, one of them will be Kera's Big Grin

Sojourn, if you're BC's have single horns, that's fine Big Grin

From what I know, Bull centaurs have a lot of tackle that cow centaurs would be missing, and cow centaurs have a lot of features thankfully missing in bulls, soooo....

If these were Bovine-centaurs, I would agree, but the competition is for BULL centaurs and if species are regulated by this motion, then so should gender... And if gender is not an issue, then we should allow cross-species centaurization as well....

After all, its not like this is an extension of GW Canon for Chaos Dwarves anyway; the last GH and the recent Artisan's Contest was anything but...

Bull-centaur IS the species, a cow-centaur is, presumably, a female of it, otherwise it's a slang term for one. That's my reading of it, anyhow. The staff shall discuss and decide.

'Bull centaur' is like having 'beastmen'.  There is no mention of the female of the species.  I agree a Bull is not a Cow, but I doubt we would make this a seriously unbalanced competition to allow it.  Just remember to include udders. Wink

Thanks GSF, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't assuming the opinion of the other staff members, but we're agreed now it seems.

Bull Centaur is the race for the purposes of this competition, not the gender.
