Default Death Shroud's Daemons of Chaos

I'm really fickle so have problems finishing armies (always something newer and shinier on the horizon). Hopefully keeping a project log will give me the impetus and encouragement to stick with one army till they are finished.

I originally intended to make an all Khorne force but after playing against the Daemons I realise that if I want a competitive list (which I'll need since I'm not a great general) I'll have to go with elements from various chaos gods.

I have done a couple of centrepiece models to start with to test some techniques and give me a reason to finish the rest of the army.

Daemon Prince of Khorne (will use as Skarbrand)

First model finished, skin was mechrite red washed with lot's of Baal red and Badab black then re highlighted (then a dose of Devlan mud)

Herald of Khorne (will use as Skulltaker)

Love this model, it was great fun to paint and fits in with the other Bloodletters far better than the Citadel Skulltaker model. The skin was basecoated with the Vallejo's "Heavy Red" from their new "Extra Opaque" range (their version of Foundation paints). The red is more vivid than Mechrite.

The skin was then washed with a mix of Baal Red and Badab Black (I'd recommend anyone thinking of doing Daemons keeps a pot of this "Khorne Juice" handy).
The skin was then highlighted with thinned down layers of Vallejo "Scarlett Red", "Gory Red" and "Bloody Red" (No prizes for guessing what the GW equivalent of those paints are).

Herald of Khorne (view of "kill")

Read a mention of Tamiya clear red on a project log on Warseer and thought I'd give it a go. Makes amazing looking blood.

Normally i hate the look of people painting all of their blades with red paint to look like they are covered in blood as it looks crap. Khornate Daemons seem to fit the idea far better though (I'm going to try and resist over-using the Clear Red in the army but it's addictive)

Not sure what to work on next, have got Juggernaughts, Daemonettes and Horrors so far, final army list not drawn up yet.

Any tips, suggestions, comments or questions welcome.

[EDIT] Yay! worked out how to post the pictures properly!

Thanks Bishop5

OK. I've had a look at the models I own (or am just about to buy in case of the last 5 Horrors) and have drawn up a quick list of what I can field so far.

The idea is that I get a usable 1500pt list constructed so I can get some practice using the army. From there I can buy additional units to add to/replace less effective units.

So far I can field 1185pts
HQ
SkarBrand 300pts
Skulltaker 140pts
ELITES
3 Bloodcrushers (instrument of chaos) 125
TROOPS
10 Bloodletters (chaos icon, instrument of chaos) 190
15 Daemonettes (chaos icon, instrument of chaos) 240
10 Pink Horrors (instrument, bolt, changeling) 190

I have 315pts to fill before I can get some practice in, not sure what to spend it on. A Soulgrinder to give me some firepower, Fiends to give me more speed, Daemon princes to give me more close combat punch, more troops to give me the numbers. What do you think?

Wow! They're amazing. Your DP is really good. Not too much blood on his axe and they tongue looks pretty good there as well. A tad of blood splatter on garments might be in order here but they're really really good. If I could paint half as well as you I'd be laughing. Seriously though, they look awesome as they stand.

Skulltaker is beyond awesome. Its Beawesome. Great conversion and top notch paintjob. The DP is great as well but it is overshadowed by the work on the Skulltaker.

Rep+

It's not a conversion, it's the forgeworld herald that comes with the Daemon Prince (I wish my converting skills were that good).

Currently building the unit of 15 Daemonettes, will post some pics soon (not very interesting, but it's progress).

My mistake, you deserve the rep anyway. I went and checked it out on the fw website. It is a magnificent model and you have painted it really well. The colors you have used on the corpse(particularly the blood) really made it jump out at me.

Thanks for the support it's appreciated.

Not as interesting as painted models but I have some pics of the assembled Daemonettes!

Here they are. I'm using a basing techinque I copied from some friends. Building the base up with Milliput and imbedding GW slate into them. Pinning the model to the base then glue the small GW slate to it. Going for a wasteland look to the bases.


I know a lot of people prefer the previous metal Daemonettes but I love these "girls". It's a mixture of the detail and the fact they returned to the look of the original Daemonette models from the "Slaves to Darkness" era.


Undercoated and ready for painting. I'm a bit nervous about messing these up. I want to paint them well but getting 15 models done to the standard they deserve will be tough.

Like I said, not the most interesting update, will try to get a test model painted and I'll put a picture up.
