Looks good - I guess I wasn't sure because you showed different sides and most of your rebuilding work would have been on the other side.

 

I don't think I've used the skull one yet for my demonettes - I have used it for the heraldry plate of my knight, though.  I haven't needed to convert it, though - between the various standards in the demonettes kit, the seekers kit and the witch aelves kit, I haven't needed to yet.

I had the idea to make some adjustments, mostly removing the spikes and then I started wondering what else I could get away with tongue.png There was only a couple of small cuts in the ridges but if you're going to do something best to do it properly so I've patched them up:

 

gallery_30308_10249_2396.jpg

 

Short of a little bit more clean up the model is done smile.png As I had the GS out I went back to the Enrapturess, aside from some gap filling I wanted to make the face a better fit:

 

gallery_30308_10249_5914.jpg

 

Turned out far better than it had any right to on an assembled, fragile model tongue.png I'm really happy that I put the effort in as now she'll fit in much better with my Diaznettes which is great because I like the model generally so now I can put it in lists without any reservations biggrin.png To complete the fruitful assembly the two Alluress models are done with some Seeker claws (thanks to BCC!) along with the two standard models:

 

gallery_30308_10249_56571.jpg

 

I still need to do some final small tweaks and clean up remaining lines, but they'll only need their bases after that to be ready for priming. Which is good timing as I also completed the Fiends:

 

gallery_30308_10249_35154.jpg

 

There's a few touch ups required but it's good to get the finished biggrin.png I'll try for some extra angle shots at some point too, they turned out nicely I think which is just as well considering the time and effort required! I stopped counting how many gems there are, must be about 50 easily confused.gif So as great as they are I'm glad I have some other models to get cracking on before I get to the next box laugh.png

 

After these are done I should be good and get another 10 Daemonettes completed. Then I can justify opening the KoS which I have been waiting for... speaking of, she'll be the big bad of my list and sadly all alone for it as the only single model unit of high toughness so to avoid eating AT like there's no tomorrow (which there won't be, with only a 5++) I'm increasingly leaning towards that Soul Grinder (or two). We'll see, I want to be good and get more of what I have done before adding new models, but it may be a case of necessity - don't want to spend all this time, money, and effort on the KoS only to be removing it Turn 1 each game...

I had a lot of catching up to do and it certainly was worth it! Great progress here and the Fiends look amazing. The transferred scheme from the Daemonettes works really well. The GS work is excellent, once painted all that hard work will be worth it :tu:

I have been busy making progress where I can smile.png Here's some additional shots of the new Fiends:

The Blissbringer has 30 gems, I hope that translates to effectiveness on the table top tongue.png

 

gallery_30308_10249_34033.jpg

 

I'll try and steal what time I can this week for more progress, it'd be good to get them primed before the weekend for more efficient use of time and daylight thumbsup.gif

Some progress this weekend:

 

gallery_30308_10249_64411.jpg

 

Not a great deal as my time was eaten up but better than nothing of course smile.png Turns out there's not much melon on the Enrapturess so I'll add some more but I'm not sure where yet. Between the cloak and hair I'm leaning towards the latter.

What do you mean by melon?  The red-pink colour?  If I would do all her horns in that colour as they are the main things that make her look non-human.

Yes, the orangey pink was dubbed "melon" and it works well so stuck tongue.png I was going to do the horns white as with the Fiends but I think your idea might be better, help keep the beasts with their own look to separate them from the humanoid daemons smile.png I'm thinking about getting the Daemonettes done first so I can focus on the Enrapturess after, would give me time to see how it comes together thumbsup.gif

I agree with the horns, maybe also the feet/leg poking out as they look quite similar to the Fiends?

Making stead progress on the Daemonettes:

 

gallery_30308_10249_25808.jpg

 

Metallics on the Daemonettes are done so decent enough, I did have to tidy up a few model issues that became apparent with paint/wash on but unavoidable with older models sometimes! I'll save more for the weekend I think, when I'm a bit more rested - mostly the detail work left anyway. I'll see what I can do during the week, it'd be great to finish these this weekend but it might be better to swap to assembly to keep the furnace and progress going.

Once I have these and the Enrapturess done I'll have a decent collection ready for an army shot smile.png It will almost be an actual army too - I'd only be one Troop choice away from a battalion biggrin.png

Almost finished them this weekend, didn't get as much time as I had planned at the hobby desk but I can't complain as it has been a productive week:

 

gallery_30308_10249_93031.jpg

 

The gems are the only real work left, the bases won't take long to finish nor will the instruments. That is once I've figured out what I'm doing with them. The idea of an ivory jumped into my mind and sticks but I'm not sure how best to achieve this. Maybe a white or off white base with a wash? Not sure or decided yet, any thoughts?

They're looking grand and such speedy progress! :tu: Not too sure on ivory I've never tried to paint it. Maybe looking up Deathwing painting recipes will help?

I played around with some colours on a whim and managed to get something that looks nice smile.png Finished the bases too so just the gems left - I'll save them for the weekend. Then my painting time is dedicated to the Enrapturess, I think I've figured out what colours I'm putting where now too.

 

In preparation for next steps - and because I could resist no longer - I unboxed my Keeper of Secrets biggrin.png The model looks great and I can see how you can magnetise the snapping claws neatly, this will be great for transporting the model as they do stick out quite a bit. Unfortunately while the left hand (ritual knife, shining aegis, sinistrous hand, living whip) shares the same clean connection at the wrist I noted that the wrist has a dimple for the robes to attach.

 

However taking the back elements and robe bits from Shalaxi Helbane would avoid this, so all is not lost as this looks a simple swap. I'd like to keep the robes though as they look nice, I'll see how secure they are without the wrist connection and go from there smile.png Looks like I can easily leave the collar off too, I'll see what other modifications I can think of... no rush as I expect to not work on this quite yet, it's a little imposing as well!

 

 

Since we're here, anyone have thoughts on Shalaxi Helbane compared to a normal KoS? She's only a little bit more expensive but seems to be heavily tailored as an assassin. I'm sure she'd do fine work hunting down monsters and characters and the like, my concern would be she's a bit too good at it and will be even more of a target priority for it. I suppose that's as much a problem as normal so perhaps she's best taken with a KoS, give you better odds? That's a lot of points though confused.gif
