Assorted Daemons

Finished a group of Tzeentch and Slaanesh Daemons today. First up is a couple of old style Pink Horrors:Next is a group of 5 Screamers. These guys turned out better than I thought they would. The pic isn't the greatest. I've got to get a better place to take pics and a better light source.

Next is a Fiend of Slaanesh. Another one that turned out pretty good. I rather enjoyed painting this beastie.And lastly is the Masque:Next up is the last of my Daemons, a unit of Flesh Hounds. I would still like to get a greater daemon of Khorne and Slaanesh. I've also got Epidemius and a whole 2 Plaguebearers. I'm not going to paint these up till a get a whole lot more of them. Could be a while as they guys go for a pretty high price on Ebay and I'm not paying GW's exorbitant costs for a box of 5 guys when I need at least 20-25 of them.

Also had most of my friends over last night for a game of Arkham Horror. It didn't go well. We were pitted against Cthulhu itself and we fared pretty badly.

Daemon Lord & Core

Today I finished my last large unit of Daemons, a unit of 20 Bloodletters:

It's a good thing this is my last large unit as I'm getting tired of these minis that don't rank up worth a crap. Two boxed sets (20 minis) and a total of 4 minis have the swords held in the upright position for easy ranking.

I also finished a Tzeentch Lord of Change:

Next up is a medley of Tzeentch and Slaanesh Daemons.

I also got some good news this week as the new Tomb King army book will be out in May. I was rather surpised as the new Orc & Goblin book is out in March. That's a rather quick follow up by GW. I really hope they don't go with the same magic item number that they did in O&G. O&G only got a grand total of 8 magic items. Ouch!

Furies and a Herald

Tonight I finished a group of 10 Chaos Furies. These minis turned out rather dark and the shot isn't the best.

I'm not sure I'll ever use these guys as they're kind of pricey (12 pts) for what you get. The Ld of 2 is pretty crippling. Also I can't remember if these guys were in a loose skirmish like formation in 7th edition but in 8th they rank up. These models are not going to rank up at all. It's just not possible.

I also finished up a Herald of Tzeentch on Disc.

The Disc itself is a rather old mini and is kind of dull and didn't really paint up that great. The Herald worked out anyway.

Next up is a unit of Bloodletters and a Greater Daemon of Tzeentch.

Daemon Lord and Hero

Late last night I finished up another handful of Daemon minis. First up is my Greater Daemon of Nurgle and 4 bases of Nurglings.

Next is my homemade Blue Scribes of Tzeentch. GW doesn't make a specific mini for this character.

The disc is a round 50mm base. I probably should've went with a smaller disc as this one was a little big. The fins, disc bottom and Tzeentch symbol are plasticard. The books, scrolls and telescope are from Thomarillion. The two horrors are old style Blue Horrors.

Next up is a Herald of Tzeentch and a Greater Daemon of Tzeentch.
