Hi guys, 

 

Wondering what Frater here use as regular daemons of the ruinstorm? Obviously there's the usual troops from the 4, but I get the feeling Ruinstorm Daemons are more generic than any that are dedicated to one of the 4. Think the Iron warriors of the Daemon world.

 

I've got some Warcry Furies as a winged troops:

I was thinking of chainrasps as another (mainly because here in the UK you can currently get 10 of them for £3) thoughts?

Anyone else want to add? not just troops, anything really!

Those WarCry daemons look like decent choices. We had a topic on this when the list was first released.

Thanks for the link, seems I'm not that all original then ;)

I was thinking with the chainrasps of converting the heads/arms with spares from the daemonette/bloodletter range, to give them a more daemonic feel.

Also the AoS range has some other good minis, archaons dragon (as mentioned in the other post:

99120201045_ArchaonEverchosen01.jpg

Then there's the jabberslythe:
99810216003_JabberslytheNEW02.jpg

The cockatrice is a nice mini too:
99810299001_MoCCockatrice01.jpg

The slaughter brute:
99120201021_WoCSlaughterbrute01.jpg

I think with a little conversion the glaibestalkers could work, though I was planned a mechanicus conversion with them:
99120207056_ETBGlaivewraithStalkers01.jp

But would they look like a coherent army? Is a Daemon army meant to look coherent?

Are there any I'm missing from the range that would fit?

I think the Jabberslythe and Coackatrice are both perfect for use as daemons. I think with consistency, wou would probably expect a strong common theme, as daemons tend to manifest themselves in a fashion that relates to the fears and imaginings of those in the locality. Having said that, the warp makes little sense and the only constant is change...

Oh, I would definitely use this model as my main guy:

It is from expansion to the game "Cthulu: Death May Die"  called "Black Goat of the Woods" which (with other 6 minis) costs around 20 euro.

The  infernii line from the mierce miniatures darklands game might be another place to start in terms of greater daemons/ Daemon lords/ Brutes. There generally on 80mm-120mm bases from what I recall.

It's a taste thing, but Nighthaunt have never struck me as a particularly good match for DotR, probably because they are spoopy ghosties rather than madness-inducing monstrosities. Their low price tag and ease of painting probably accounts for why they're such a popular choice and at the risk of sounding like a massive gatekeeper, it kinda looks... cheap?

I would agree that Nighthaunt dont quite fit the bill, only because they are very much embedded visually within another games system.

 

The other minis would all be lovely and the diversity would only contribute to it for sure!

Hi all,

 

you should have a look at Wyrd miniatures, either for Malifaux or The Other Side. ome great models there. And the quality of castings is at least as good as GW. Very detailed miniatures.

 

Reaper Bones Series is another good source. That material is fantastic. Inexpensive, easy to paint and highly durable. Almost no assembly required. THere are some great sculpts there.

See, I think that a Ruinstorm army shouldn't be consistant and that having a couple of Nighthaunts in a basic daemon unit would be fine. They are pretty much the ghosts/reapers of human myth and it would make sense for daemons to appear like that as they are what most people would think of when walls start pulsing and statues and doors start bleeding.

Replace the wings with multiple sets of arms, and maybe remove or paint mock eyes into their frills? Spare horror/flamer arms could do the trick

Another option for the bigger daemons are 75mm scale fantasy figures  pitched by innumerable companies. A surprising number of companies that specialize in 75mm historicals, have side lines of fantasy figures that include interesting demonic ones.
