A discussion came up in the EC thread about Slaaneshi Daemon colour schemes. I was going to write a whole spiel on ideas but it began to slide into the subject of the Daemons of other gods in such a way I felt it deserved a dedicated thread.

 

So anyway, this is a place to discuss different colour schemes for Daemons of all dedications, be they methods of painting the "normal" schemes, slight variations of the regular colours or even completely new schemes with very little relation to the studio colours. What ideas do you have?

 

I have a ridiculous amount of ideas, so I'll try and get them out the way first.

Nurgle:

Slaanesh:

Teapots, teabags, machines. Khorne cares not from where the tea flows, only that it flows. And has one sugar and just a splash of milk. And is served in a nice china cup.

I went for a paler colour on my Daemonettes:

I wanted something a bit different, but also to have a sort of conflict in the daemonic having at first perhaps a more human appearance. It also works well expanded to other models, as I've used it on my Daemon Prince and Maulerfiend as well smile.png Might need to mix it up a bit when I get to my Steeds but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

I always quite liked the idea of Khorne Daemons being white, but being perceived as red by humans just because they're absolutely drenched in gore, almost like a terror tactic. That means they'd potentially be different colours based on what race they are fighting against.

Okay I'll repost my test Daemonette then. :P

Was going for a more unnatural look with the "liquid" pitch black skin and pink-ish metal.

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

I would love to see your nurgle models in those colours if you have them! I painted my Horticulous Averland yellow with a seraphim sepia wash over him and then some yellow highlights! It looks good, but I’d like to see or “bruised” effect!

Nice topic, love the idea as we discussed in EC subject. 

 

Let me just finish my Daemonettes and i'll post them. 


I looked down the sights of my rifle, my target looked back. It's eyes were all the eyes I'd ever loved. They promised everything I could ever want. Love, comfort, safety. An end to this nightmare. I felt my will draining out of me, entranced by those eyes.

Ask and ye shall recieve!

tyVqFz.jpg4zkuwS.jpgpccFBb.jpgStill WIP, the skin is pretty much done as are most of the cysts, but the tentacles, nails and offal are all early stages. Also note that aside from the method described earlier, there were other steps in certain areas, notably a light glaze of Bloodletter on some of the bottom parts.

 

(And yes, that base is meant to look like what you think it is!)

 

Hope that helps!

The face is still very WIP, needs more work before there's really anything to see. But I'll be sure to photo him when he's ready.

I completely agree in regards to Nurgle there should be an alternate colour to just green.  I tried a few things, like with these Nurglings:

My finding was yellow-brown strongly drybrushed white gives a pus-like quality that I think is a great alternative to Nurgle's usual green.

For my Slaanesh daemon i choose to go on an aquatic scheme. 

 

Because i do love the mix between turquoise (daemon) and deep purple (Emperor's children). 

 

And i find it appropriate for daemon with crabs claws, mount with sea horse head based on the mermaid myth of seducing humain in order to kill them. 

 

Here is a WIP of some daemonette :
