Today I started putting together the 20 Daemonettes I have vowed for the ETL and I have to admit that the kit is actually leaving me more than a little stressed out. Maybe it's because I've got so used to contemporary kits dictating the appropriate way that individual models should be built, but sorting out which arms can or should go with each Daemonette really isn't coming easily to me. There are a lot of even very basic things I still haven't got my head around when it comes to working out what goes where.

 

I was hoping that those of you who have built Daemonettes in the past could clear up two things for me:

  • Are the arms on the sprue paired or is their no connection between those opposite each other?
  • Are there left and right arms or can any arm potentially be attached to either shoulder?

You can always use the picture on gw site to somewhat guide you. Worst case scenario they are demons so a little twisted arm or leg could be even nice to see (or make mends with greestuff)


"They were despatched into the Outer Darkness upon that first Day of Exile, there to ravage the foes of mankind until their final atonement. Their Forgotten One gave them remit unbound, to set about the Traitor, the alien and the Renegade without mercy, and to harrow them in their places of strength. So began their long hunt. They hunt still."

From my experience, all the arms can go on any shoulder (left or right, any daemonette model) and any head can go on any model.

 

So just put whatever arms and head on that you think will make a nice pose.

Thanks for the encouragement/advice both of you.

 

I know you've been doing a unit of Daemonettes recently, Dr_Ruminahui, so could you possibly get me a close up of how your standard bearer's right arm joins at the shoulder? I can't for the life of me work out how those pieces are supposed to go together cleanly so that the model can hold the standard.

Here's a pic of mine - I'm in the middle of painting it.

What I did was tried to glue both the flag to the arm and the arm to the body at the same time.  Both points ended up failing - so don't do that.

 

How I think I should have done is glue the shoulder to the body as snuggly as I could, then the next day glued the flag to the arm.  From seeing it together, I figure that would fit as well as what I eventually achieved, without as much danger of the flag breaking off.

 

Now, looking at the picture of the Start Collecting manual, I see what the problem was - I modeled it with the flag arm going down, not out front.  Here's how I should have done it.

I even used the claws from the seekers I had left over.  To get even more variety, I used seeker heads, the heads from the chariot sprues, and mismatched the claws.  The kit confused me at first to.
