I've been playing Sisters of Battle since before some of you were born, most likely.  I've got points upon points of SoBs, and recently a novel thought occurred to me: why not buy something that's not a Sister of Battle?  I know, right?  Sounds ridiculous but hear me out.  I picked up some of Raging Heroes' line of Definitely Not Daemonettes and here is the very beginning of what I hope to be a rather small but coherent Daemon army.

So far I have twenty of these, and some of their Furianns, which maybe could be used as Bloodletters?  Not sure about that but I'm excited to paint something new and figure out a use for it later.

Those look great - great choice on colours as well.  I look forward to seeing your army grow.

Hey all it's been a long time but I've finally finished this unit of 20 Daemonettes.  Tried a lot of new stuff on these minis, give me some feedback! :)

Never paint faster than you can see - it’s all the reflexes!


Looking good - keep shaking the pillars of heaven!

Those look really nice - I like the purple you've used for the flesh and your use of matallic paints on the daemony bits.

There is progress!  Thrilled that I found some time to paint this week, buckled down and got her done; just the base to go.

Very nice, the models are quite fitting and the paint scheme really suits them. Which is which between the KoS and the BT?

OK so I am going to use the snake-body lady as a KoS, and I am considering this one as a Daemon Prince; what do you all think?

So I got the Harvester of Flesh from Raging heroes, but I have to say I'm not thrilled with how it came out and I'm not sure why....maybe her main body is just the wrong color or needs more?  Any suggestions on this mini?

 

Also I was thinking of using it as a Greater Daemon but now I think it's just not big enough....and ideas on what she could be in the army?

You could elevate the model by putting a cork or foam rock underneath it. Then it would be about the same size as a Greater Daemon.

When you say main body do you mean the torso? I think it might be the strong contrast between that and the lower half and how it forms a hard line. Perhaps mixing up the patchwork with different skin colours can help here, as well as help differentiate between that and the rest of the "legs". As for sizing the base is the main thing when you get models that are this large, as Tallarn says a raised base goes far here and is pretty easy :)
