Hiya, I just thought i'd share my polystyrene Anvil with you (I LOVE the actual finecast model but no way can I afford it!). I have painted an old metal warmachine crewman (lack of an actual runelord model) who I think really looks like he's fighting off some magical tempest. Just try and ignore the Cannon ram in his hand. It's a rune-staff. Seriously. 

 

And maybe ignore the Cannon shell in his hand. It's a rune-bowl.

The two guards are converted warriors (I use them as Ironbreakers). Basically just stuck tons of extra armour and beefed up shields etc. 

 

Do you think this is ok to use? Obviously I'm not playing in official tournaments - just with a group of friends.

Very nice!  Perhaps you can cut off the sponge part of the rammer and attach an ancestor head or large hammer?

Thanks Oridur! What's an ancestor head? I am not very experienced with metal models but i'll give it a go. It isn't just a rammer though. It's a rune-rammer.

Actually, there are a lot od plastic standard bearers from last edition that have a ancestor face.  Check out the miners I just posted under "Oridur's Army as an example.

You can find metal anvil of dooms pretty cheaply. With a little patience. I might even know where to find one...

Nice. But isn't that rune bowl actually his runic helmet?
