[ERROR] No.17141373 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

So I'm thinking of building a slaaneshi chaos demons army for my first WHFB army. Any tips?
My first thought was to go with a tzeentch theme but pink horrors don't seem that great.

Failing that, fantasy general?

>> No.17141389

Tips?

Build and make the army that you think is the coolest and would be the most fun.

Once you learn the ins and outs of your fun army, you'll win a lot and have a grand old time doing it.

I've seen some people suggest using Tyranid Raveners for Fiends.

Also, grab that plastic Sorcerer of Tzeentch, replace his head with a Daemonette head, and give him some slaaneshi iconography, bam. Herald

I really like this Idea. Thanks!

Can't honestly say I've though much about Daemons. They look like they'd be fun enough to paint if you're really good at doing flesh stuff; honestly, the thought of painting Bloodletters tends to put me off.

I use Daemonettes with Gargoyle wings

>> No.17142024

Okay, potentially terrible idea.
For a Plastic Keeper of Secrets, grab the Cygor/Ghorgon kit.
It's large, bovine, has 4 arms. All traits of the early Keepers of Secrets.
The Cygor's single eye could even make a good representation of the gift: "Enrapturing Gaze",

Would make good Slaaneshi Furies or Screamers though.

You can still model wings on them, that doesn't mean they can actually fly. Just look at ostriches and moas and shit. Rule of cool = win.

the "old" ones were these (actually, they don't correspond to the oldest designs, and the oldest daemonettes miniatures were simply coarser versions of the current ones) and /tg/ prefers them because they look prettier and have more titties, despite being less fluff-accurate and uneasy to convert.

this was a custom job done by a person posting under the name "fifth miracle" on CMON, I bought one of the daemon princesses he made but I really want one of these, which he never made available for purchase.

Male daemonettes? So, like incubi or something?

this is one I saw posted on /tg/ recently, I thought the conversion was decently done and I rather like the idea of a daemonette having a syringe arm.

>> No.17142721

>>17142669
Slaaneshi deamons are supposed to be hermaphroditic in nature, but nothing says they can't lean more toward male. anyway I think they look good and the conversions are not that hard to do provided you have all the pieces to do it.

moving on, this is one of the daemon princesses I was talking about earlier, they were for sale on ebay for a while, I'm not sure if fifth miracle is still making them though.

You might be one of the better namefags, but 40k is that way --->

There are so many good Fiend ideas here... and most of them would double as Seekers.

Personally, I like the 3rd Edition (the 2nd generation) Daemonettes. They have big claws.

The current plastics are pretty boring but when you have all three of those versions in one big mob, it looks pretty cool. >>17142542
The old, old daemonettes were pretty bad. I'm glad I have no desire to field some of them in my mob.

I reckon that's the one thing I love most about Daemons of Chaos: You can just throw anything and everything in there and it'll generally work on a visual level.

By the way, this is called the ... something face. It's a very simple optical illusion. Press a face into greenstuff creating an indentation. Bring the banner to level. Done.

well I'm glad at least one person feels that way, but alright I'll chill on the 40k stuff.

>Personally, I like the 3rd Edition (the 2nd generation) Daemonettes. They have big claws.

I have to agree I liked them a bit as well, and I will also agree that having a "mixed" unit of all three would be pretty cool.

as for the bog standard "new" deamonettes being boring I find that paintjobs also lend themselves to causing this, daemonettes are on of the few models I think NEED to have a bright and vibrant paint job to look good. Which makes me wonder why they painted most of the daemonettes in the codexes flesh with a few splashes of other color here and there.

All Slaanesh WHFB daemons? Yeah, don't.

I have it, had it since the last Hordes of Chaos, and managed just fine (minor victories/defeats), especially with the Storm of Chaos list. Then came Daemons of Chaos and I can barely make a draw. I guess it's my fault for not having a Keeper of Secrets (just a prince, which are utter shit now), and without one, Slaaneshi daemons lack all punch. You got S3 all around with some S4 from Fiends. That's it. It's like playing IG with just lasguns and bolt pistols.
