First squad done--the 10 Daemonettes with Instrument. Going to see if I can't haul ass on the Vindicator to get in in before the deadline as well, whenever that deadline might be...





Only one crest fringe on this squad, and I find myself missing the splash of color it gave the other bunch of Daemonettes I did, but all in all, I think they'll look good mixed together. Going to base my 'Nettes in squads of 20 so I can tell them apart if I want to field a purple-and-silver wave. Only 40 more Daemonettes (and 15 Seekers) left to paint! ...of my Slaaneshi daemons. Not to mention the Fiends or second Slaaneshi DP.

I can feel your pain - I'm currently painting 40 Daemonettes and 20 Seekers :S

It's interesting to see them with such a dark theme though! I think that's the first - Like ever - I have seen

Nice daemonettes! I never liked those models though : / not lusty enough! I have seen some conversions of 28mm amazon women models into Daemonnets/Succubi with some hands turned into those claws and it fit perfectly. Try to look it up, looks dozen times better then official gw models

I really disliked the models at first, too, especially compared to the 4e metal Daemonette models. Still, though, these ones have... grown on me. I guess there's a Stockholm Syndrome component to assembling 60 (75?) of the things.

I tend to see light Slaaneshi and dark Nurgle models, so I'm trying to flip the tables around with my own Daemons models. Going for a possibly slightly more typical dark bloody Khornate, but at least my Tzeentchi are going to be mostly green, rather than blue or pink.

...in other words, a riotous panoply of color and confusion. The Chaos Gods wouldn't want it any other way...

Some 'Phil Kelly style' Tyranids I've been painting. The colour scheme is quick and lazy, but the black, yellow, blue contrast works quite well. I also tried out the new basing paint, which took some time to figure out, but is quite cool when used right. now the only thing left to do is flock the bases.





More gaunts I painted earlier in the month. I don't have a before photo of these fellas.


The warriors have a minor conversion. I dislike how the stock devourer looks on the warrior chassis, so I've used a deathspitter with the barrel replaced with the devourer barrel. They actually fit together quite well, and IMO look heaps better.



When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

Looking good. I've been thinking about doing a black base color scheme on my 'nids, those have helped me decide it will be a good looking scheme.
