Oh man i can't belive i have not seen this sooner, its fantastic. I really like what you have done here, the green on the base is good and its given me a few ideas

If you're going to put this much effort into the rest of the army then it will be a stunning army show us more.

Looking good so far, no doubt. However, if I may make a suggestion I think you need to thin your paint a good deal more. You have the concepts of layering down obviously, along with other techniques, and can apply them well but the paint is far too thick. The pic that focuses on the slave is a perfect example and if you look at the leg you can see a thick lined difference in the colours that looks like mud on the model. Thinning the paint down will eliminate this result and really allow your layering and overall painting ability to shine. I like to thin my paints with at least 1 part water for every 1 part paint.

PLEASE don't think that I am smacking you down as that is not my intention at all. I had to be told the same thing and am only trying to offer my own experience to you. It is a well painted mini with striking colours/contrasts and is definitely something to be proud of. I just think that it needs a bit of thinning down.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

A bit more progress and refinement. Took these photos against a darker background and the camera seems to have been happier. I tried to take some of these comments into account, keep them coming





I'm in the early stages of refurbishing an old fig as a daemon prince(ss). Lots is going to change with this fig but here it is currently:





That's probably enough weird female demons for now I think. I'd better start on some straightforward khorne berzerkers or something...

Woah, dude, I'm breathless. I mean, seriously, the level of awesomeness in those models are well beyond the level of awesomeness that would be illustrated by adding the word "fucking" after "awesome". It's just insanely nice. especially the chicks, gotta love 'em. They are more than reason enough to worship Slaanesh! ^^

Those pics are much better than the previous ones and the paint on the slave for certain is much improved. Keep thinning those paints from the very beginning and I suspect we will see some top notch work from you hoss. That daemon princess is badass btw.

Your conversions are just fantastic, you have really captured the feel of Slannesh and just picking up on what The Wraithlord said keep those paints thinned. One thing i did notice and its something i use to do and get, if you look closely at the slave girls leg you'll spot that you can see the under coat still !

This is easy to sort as its cased by painting on layers too quickly, give each layer enough time to dry and you'll not get this. Also do you understand about "rich" colours ? if not then here is a quick brief, when you layer a colour ie red and you put thin coats on till you can not see the undercoat and the painted colour is the colour it should be then this is a rich colour, this is the short version.

As with Wraith i'm saying this to hopefuly point you in the right direction.
Keep up the great work mate

How the hell did I not see this before. That lord is bloody amazing!. Insanely nice work right from C to C.

Can't wait to see more this. One question - where did you get the kneeling demonette from?

It's just a basic daemonette. They are mostly standing on one leg so I found one that had the other leg bent about how it would be if she was kneeling, cut off the leg she was standing on and made a new one from GS. It took a foot from another daemonette because I can't sculpt feet (and I had some spare after making harpies a bit like the daemon princess here with no legs). I also sclupted a new right arm.

This was one of the harder GS operations I've done. It took no time at all to stick a bit of GS where the leg should be, but ages to get it to look like a real leg.
