Getting ready to have slaaneshi daemons on crusade (probably start keeper, herald, daemonettes, 3 fiends). But decided not to use any of the standard models!

Here’s some I’d already put together (keeper, prince , herald, daemonettes):

Close up of some of the daemonettes:

And a new keeper WIP:

For khorne, I’ve kitbashed a couple of bloodthirsters:

Just finishing off some “fiends” and got a dual-use skarbrand/ann’grath project on the go!

Starting the skarbrand (axes, 100mm base) and An’ngrath (wings etc, 130 mm base).

I’d got this guy intending him to be skarbrand... but he was a little large... and then I started tinkering...

That is an understatement, I had to do a double take as to which models were in the picture :P

Can’t even finish painting this one before I start a third keeper... but I had all the bits! Can’t resist tinkering when I have bits!

Wow :D The models look so cool. Especially the slaaneshi ones. My main army is haemonculi covens, but my other army is a full slaanesh army with both daemons and CSM. So I think it's really funny with someone else who plays slaanesh. I think in general, your slaanesh models look better than your khorne models.

Thanks! The great thing about Chaos is how much flexibility there is in making an army your own :)

Speaking of, not much progress but got a shot of the 25PL combat patrol for when crusading starts up again!

I think your models look great, and you've really managed to make the dryads look like demon(ette)s rather than being a bunch of twigs, which is quite a feat.

 

That said, I think if you could work some of that pale flesh into the models, they fit in better with your HQ units.

I might have a think about adding some white to the rank and file. It would tie them in nicely. Hmmm...

Not sure on the whip... I’d hoped the effect would be more mottled

I think the whip looks fine, but if you're aiming for a mottled look I'm sure it won't be too much work to go back to it and add something? If you're feeling brave that is as if it goes wrong you'll have to repaint it :P

Ah saw these on FB! What are the base models for the Greater Daemons?
Always wanted to use dryads for daemons somehow, much potential there!

For these guys (the twins!):

1090004_sm-Twins.jpeg

The top pair are both based on Reaper bones Minotaur demon lord

The bottom pair are both reaper bones Rauthorus (the newer, larger version. Bones IV, iirc. I did use a smaller older Rauthorus for the wings for the top bloodthirster )

All crab claw arms are from reaper bones wolf demons. Also used a wolf demon head on the top bloodthirster!
The odd keeper out, is a Minotaur king I got from ETSY (and got them to printout at 150% scale)

Ah. The above slaanesh one, is it a daemon prince? Or is it just a conversion? (I recognized the sword)

You seem to convert a lot. It can be fun. I love converting myself, with my grotesques and other haemonculi creations. It saves lots of money.

He’s a greater daemon (on a 100mm base). He is quite a bit bigger than a prince, (face on doesn’t give a very good size impression):

1091050_sm-.jpeg


Yeah- I’m a big fan of converting. Really gets the creative side of the hobby going! (Big difference from my early rogue trader days where I was all about playing and hardly even painted. Since coming back in 8th, most of my 40K time is converting/painting rather than playing! ... though two small kids will do that!)

And it does save money. Figure all 3 keepers combined maybe total 80ish bucks. Two bloodthirsters probably come to about the same.

I like it except for the guardsman's plasma pistol - they are ridiculously huge on GW models, and the model you used is even smaller.  I think it would be better off with a grenade in that hand or a lasgun... or something else that isn't as absurdly out of scale.

 

That said, I'm really digging your off-brand keepers of secrets - I love the new GW model, but yours are such great call backs to the original 2nd ed. model.

Thanks!

Yeah, I planned to give him a las pistol but was surprised to find my bits box had run out! The plasma pistol was the only 1-handed weapon I had but I will probably chop it and replace when I come across anything smaller.
