You both have convincing arguments :P I'm thinking of keeping Be'lakor in his default colours as he is technically separate from any particular force, and it would be something quite different to paint, but I want to link him to the army with more than the base scheme. Some armour and details in melon should work here I think but I'll be deciding once I get there. Plus I'm hoping that since others have their Dark Master already perhaps I might glean some inspiration from seeing theirs soon?

 

I'm busy working on the Defiler for my CSM but I feel the call of daemons strongly... So many projects, so little time - the one thing Tzeentch can't change :lol:

I think you should build and paint your Be'lakor model first and then let me know how easy / hard it is to do and what to watch out for lol


Chains, base, and Be'lakor should be painted separately before being attached to each other. Other than that the model was a dream to paint, especially if you enjoy dry brushing.

My vote goes towards painting Be'lakor in his default colours. I like keeping named characters the way they appear in the official fluff. I feel like it makes my custom dudes who are fighting besides them more "official" as well somehow. But that's just my personal preference. msn-wink.gif

I'm thinking of seeing if I can use Black Templar for his darker colours, as if I can get the bulk of the work done with some base colours and wash approaches etc on top then with a bit of dry brushing/highlighting the bulk of the model could be relatively quick and easy?

Some progress here finally, the Daemonettes have been for a bath and came out well. Even the plastic card managed to survive which was a nice surprise but I'll take it tongue.png

Six arms needed gluing back on, I figured may as well match them up since I could:

You could almost pretend it didn't happen? laugh.png They've been waiting a long time to get the primer corrected so as soon as my Defiler is done these will be top of the list smile.png

With them primed yesterday I was eager to make amends for the delay and while it has been some time since I painted any daemons I know the first steps are pretty quick and simple:

 

gallery_30308_10249_34864.jpg

 

Painting such nice models always helps too, they're ready for the more detailed work now. Unfortunately this is the lion's share of the painting time, especially all the soul stones sweat.gif It's good to be back to my daemons so once I've sorted some other projects out I expect to get these done relatively quick smile.png

 

Before anyone asks; no this won't be enough to earn Be'lakor laugh.png I need a good few more options for my army before I can think about "supplements" so I reckon at least another unit before I could consider myself deserving. Perhaps another 10 Daemonettes, 3 more Fiends and/or a Herald? That would give me a decent core to the army to work with.

 

I thought about the chariots but one alone won't do much, I'm thinking they're more of a group addition later once I have the bread and butter. I've tried to make lists with what I have and find myself limited very quickly so if I want my daemons in anything above 750 I need to sort the fundamentals.

daemonettes! how fun. Im gonna get myself sylleske tomorrow ^^

sometimes we feel like we cant buy the biggest model yet, but for me its like I should have done that a bit more,

so I would have gotten more daemon models instead of csm. cuz Im playing a mesh between daemons and csm.

but yeah daemonettes really is the way to go. also, they should be run in big units so they get that 1 bonus attack. :)

also, you want to have as much psyker daemons as possible.

From my own gaming experience, daemonettes aren't what "gets it done" in a slaneshi daemon list - they are simply too fragile and not potent enough to do much heavy lifting.  That said, they are a good way of helping shield Syl'Esske so SE can make it in... and if SE does, it does work.

 

They do really look nice, though, especially those old Diaz sculpts... don't have any of those in my army, unfortunately.

They'll do better once I get a Herald for that +1S aura, but otherwise they're mostly there to lock enemy units into CC and allow the other units that do more damage to get into position and do their thing etc. They can handle enemy infantry well enough in most cases, but that's hardly unique :P Once these are done I'll have four squads of Daemonettes which should give me a decent Troop number for now.

 

I reckon that five squads should be what I need for 1500pts games at a minimum, but I expect to be playing around with larger squads at that level so we'll need to see when I get there :) Time is a little short currently but I hope to be back painting soon :tu:

Yeah, exactly. they are like the farmers in chess, the first pieces to die but an important component on the road to victory.

its when you have 9 psyker characters and just spam psychic powers on them that they become good. :P

I was on the fence about it originally, and was getting enough with other things on the release so I held off. It has grown on me since and as I know some modifications to fit the Diaz theme are within my abilities it seemed a good time when I saw it for a cheaper price :P I have been thinking about the Daemonettes, but time is limited currently :( That said, I have been focusing on my Sons so the Daemonettes would make for a good break from the finesse needed... Maybe I can get a little something done soon :)
