The leader of my dwarf thong, Rudrik Ironhelm, is a completely custom model. The only problem I have is designing an epic pose for his bases. My Slayer stands on a daemon head, Josef Bugman stands on barrels, and the only interesting noticable thing about Rudrik would be his hat taken from an Empire kit. Any ideas of what I could put on his base, or put him on top of?

Did you say dramatic dawi poses?

Well, concerning the base, buy a cheap dragon toy, behead it, and mount your lord on it.
Otherwise, you could mount him on a crumbled pillar (6th ed army book cover style.)

Use the standard GW dwarf cavalry mount; other dwarves! Mount him on some shield bearers, if nothing else it's an excuse to include another couple of brave dawi!

Have him standing on a huge mound of slain Goblins.

There's a bit of fluff in the Dwarfs Trilogy where a Gobbo shaman, so impressed by the "dead 'ardness" of a Dwarf that he preserves both the slain dwarf and the dozens of dead Grobi he's killed before he finally fell as a tribute.

There's nothing quite so dramatic as a Dwarf lord climbing up the bodies of his slain enemies. Thinking of which, I may have to do just that!

A scenic base similar to this one would be good:

I remember that bit of fluff about preserving the bodies of dead dwarf and goblins and I agree a mound would look quite cool.

Scibor does some great poses and I think that one you linked to red_shift might be the best.

That is a great figure, although it begs the question - how did he get up there? I think I'd have to model a small winch for the base behind him...

Some sort of Ent/nymph/tree person hacked up for firewood as he travels deeper into the forest . . .

You could have him stood on a destroyed doomwheel with all the rats running away and the dead engineer at his feet but that could get expensive, could put him on a mound of gold ??

I was thinking about that, but the only good treasure and gold I know of is that Mordhiem treasure trove, baby dragons, and the Ogre Tyrant with all the gnoblars.

Sculpting a mound of gold coins shouldn't be too tricky, should it? Get a small tube to act as a cookie cutter, roll out a sheet of green stuff and start cutting? Then, just stick the 'coins' over a larger mounded blob of greenstuff and job done :)
