The daemonette models never really vibed with me so I have always been on the look out for conversions. Does any one have some cool conversions or even count as daemonettes they use? I’d like to steer clear of 3rd party stuff for the moment and stay with AoS or 40K( or any GW model range).

Some of the hedonite models look amazing but I dont play AoS and doubt they will be usable in 40K so would any of the foot troops work as a base for conversions?
Thanks for any advice!

Combining the Witch Aelves/Sisters of Slaughter with the Daemonette parts is the usual go-to I've seen.

 

It's usually putting the heads/arms on the bodies of the Aelves

Yeah dice I have seen you work on the forums, very nice. What made you want to use the dryads?

I thought the dryad models had great potential as daemons and then I read a passage in “darkness in the blood “ where the daemonettes were described as initially attacking as fast, wraithlike darkness before solidifying into their stereotype form

Plus, I just like doing my own thing!

Yeah doing your own thing in this hobby is part of what makes it so much fun as why using the stock daemonettes is so hard lol

That's what I did, though I didn't restrict myself to just using the aelf bodies, but also used the daemonette bodies as well.  That allowed me to use every model in both kits, which makes the project much more economical and doesn't result in a whole bunch of daemonette bodies with no use.

 

My work is posted in this thread:  http://www.bolterand...slanneshi-host/

Oh ya! I have seen your dark skinned daemons and have also wanted a more dark skin design like the princess from Atlantis

At least in the picture you gave the link for, she doesn't seem so dark skinned.

 

My darkest daemonettes are in Dryad Bark with a Druichi Violet wash.

The red-brown ones are Skrag Brown with a chestnut brown (I use a craft paint) paint wash.

 

For something more like your link, maybe Balor Brown or Ungor flesh with a dark brown wash - for the ungor especially the wash would need to be fairly dark, as when washed with Reiklander Fleshade it comes out as more east asian fleshtoned (that's how my second lightest flesh tones are painted).

Yeah I guess it’s comparative. Dark compared to the main stream daemonettes.
