    Fair enough, thought I'd ask.

    How about Fireborn proxies? Maybe I can get myself off of the Forgeworld version if I find one I like more?

    Perhaps. I'm sure there must be some out there, but I am not personally aware of any. My entire range comes from the Forge World line (outside of instances where the Forge World line did not produce any sculpts... i.e. Hobgoblins, Destroyer), so I haven't researched any alternative options.

    Really? Hmm, I personally think those look better than the Forge World ones, but to each their own.

    If you're specifically into the Forge World editions, I'm afraid I don't know anyone who sells them, I can only suggest other companies' proxies mate.

    Mantic make these:

    And these:

    The only other option I think is to have a look for Chaos Dwarf stuff on Etsy and see if anybody's either 3D-printing their own or selling the Forge World ones.

    Okay great, thanks for all that.

    Yeah, I still prefer the Forgeworld ones

    No, was kind of hoping someone else had heard of it.

    It seems to have Forgeworld items for cheap... but I'm always a little suspicious when it seems too good to be true.

    Well, most of the reviews are saying they are alright.
    These were from around a year ago up to 10 months(I think). The last comment is saying they closed down.
    Obviously restarted it then.

    Be aware that this company makes recasts of the original products, so you are not actual getting the Forgeworld item, but the cast they made of it.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    There is also a war1 tabletop they seem to have more (at least for Lord of the Rings stuff)

    Grrr, Imrahil

    Thanks you your help meneer. They're actually the same company.

    It seems the main problem is paying and then no communication back. I've written an email to them (it's the same for both companies) and if they reply then I'll buy.

    Has anyone used this one?

    Anyone have any good sources for Hellcannon or Iron Daemon proxies? Getting a little bit tired of seeing the prices for the original GW models...

    I don't like the Hellcannon model enough to spend the necessary amount on it (my wallet has a little seizure every time I think about it). If I could find cheaper ones then I'd do it just to have the proper GW model. I DO like the Forge World Iron Daemon model, but the one time an unpainted one came up it was too much. :(

    Any ideas from anyone?

    I know about the Anzu Cannon model from the Lost Kingdom range, but it's a bit.... meh... I'll probably eventually go with this one if I can't find anything else.

    Haven't found any good proxies for the Iron Daemon yet. There's always kitbashing but I've already bitten off more than I can comfortably chew with the whole painting of the army thing without adding on top kitbashing which I have NEVER done before.

    So my Deathshriekers arrived.

    I also got a Forge World Magma Cannon.

    Anyone got instructions for this? I'm looking at you @NIGHTBRINGER

    @NIGHTBRINGER I realized that with the Lore of Hashut, you could cast Ashcloud on a unit and then, because it's now flammable, you can cast spells on the same unit and get +D3 on the casting costs.

    Interesting... I was thinking that the Lore Attribute was very limited, but you can make it more expansive. Nice!

    That is one of the many uses for the spell Ash Storm, which in my mind is easily the best in the Lore of Hashut. Although, if I am interpreting the lore attribute correctly, the only spells that would benefit from it are Burning Wrath and Curse of Hashut, as the others are either not magic missiles or direct damage spells, or if they are, they don't actually specifically target a unit (Hell Hammer, Flames of Azgorh). It's a pretty poor lore attribute, although Ash Storm does help it out a bit.

    A more fun combo is Ash Storm and the Black Hammer of Hashut magic item! Multi-wound models in combat with either K'daai variant are also great targets!

    Ash Storm is one of the very best spells in the game. I'd trade away the entire lore if I could have multiple copies of Ash Storm on my wizard! It does just about everything.

    @NIGHTBRINGER what is the standard base size for a Fireborn?

    I've gotten some 2nd hand but for some reason the bases are missing.
