Femme Fatales: First Daemonettes Finished

Greetings all.

Got a bit more work done over the last few days, and finished off my first unit of Daemonettes (first of three). These lovely ladies are such wonderful (and creepy) models, but they sure are fiddly as hell to paint! I'm very pleased with how they came out though, and I'm currently grinding through the next unit.

Comments are very welcome as usual!

What's that smell? Nurglings completed!

Greetings all.

Just a quickie post from me tonight to show off my most recent models, more Nurglings!

I have to say, these guys just aren't as fun as the first edition versions I painted a while back. They are great little models though. As with the other unit, I added an Epic GUO just for a bit of variety. Again, I built the bases up with cork to bring the height in line with the current models.

Comments welcome!

Femme Fatales: Daemonettes painting queue

Greetings all.

Just a quick post to let you know what I'm working on at the moment. I've got three units of the original daemonettes on my table. I'm probably not going to get through them all right now, but I decided to basecoat them all anyway:

As you can see there is a different skin tone for each unit. Often I will designate different units of the same type of daemon by using different generations of the models. With these lovely ladies I just couldn't bring myself to do it since I love the originals so much. So I decided the best way would be to split them up based on skin colour (please don't quote that out of context... I could run the risk of being misconstrued...). Hair, claws and accessories will probably end up being the same colours in each unit, just to tie them all together.

More soon!

Does this look infected...? Plague Drones finished!

Greetings all.

Despite being out of the loop as far as gaming is concerned, I've been cracking on and getting some painting done. Here I have 3 Plague Drones, finished at last:

Now I did say I was going to rant about these guys, and I still am, but I'm really pleased with how they turned out in the end. They're absolutely fantastic models, no doubt about that. However, they are an absolute pain in the arse to assemble, paint and transport. The spindly legs and sticky-out wings just seem to attach themselves to thin air, and I'm always afraid something is going to ping off and break. It was a pain getting them to stick too, as the joints of the wings wont hold their own weight (I ended up using superglue for the wings in the end).

Having said all of that, they are exceptionally cool models and they look brilliant when painted up. Some of you may notice the conversion work on the champion, made from an old school palanquin of Nurgle rider. Here's a little close up:

Again I'm well pleased with how this guy turned out. He was pretty damaged when I started and it's good to be able to bring him back to life.

Comments are welcome guys!

Hobby update: Speed daemons

Greetings all.

I've got another little update for you this evening. Nothing tremendously exciting, but progress is progress!

I've (finally) finished off the last of my Screamers and Flesh Hounds, and now have enough for full units of each. That's 20 Flesh Hounds, nine pink Screamers, and nine blue Screamers.

First up, Screamers:

And three more Flesh Hounds, including the little guy with the press moulded head (in the middle):

I apologise for the crappy pictures again; I can't actually get to my gaming boards at the mo. Look out for more stuff on the way pretty soon, including a rant about how much I hate the Plague Drone models...

Comments welcome!
