Supermunkie Starts Slaanesh (again..., again...)

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm back, slightly late, for the new battletome but have been making good progress on a mixed force of deamons, mortals and beastmen. I've decided to start a new blog to document my progress as the last one ran in a different direction to where this army is currently and my plans going forward. 

The force as it stands consists of:
Deamons - 
60 Deamonettes (unpainted)
1 Infernal Enrapturess (unpainted)
1 Keeper of Secrets - Creature Caster (unpainted)
20 Seekers (unpainted)
2 Bladebringers/Chariots (unpainted - notice a theme?)
3 Fiends (unpainted)
1 Fane of Slaanesh (unpainted)
1 Viceleader? (painted! - needs rebasing)
10 Helstriders (unbuilt, reasons below)

Mortals - 
1 Chaos Lord on Mount (PiP, pictures below)
5 Chaos Warriors (painted, waiting on weapons)
5 Marauder Horsemen with Javelins (painted)

Beatmen - 
10 Centigors (5 built, 1 painted, 5 unbuilt)
1 Great Bray Shaman (unpainted)
1 Doombull (unbuilt)

As you can see, it's quite the backlog! I'm currently in the process of finalising colour schemes and  putting everything together. 

Anyway, enough rambling, pictures!

Firstly, the Centigors which started the revamp:

I used the torso's from the Helstrider kit with the mounts from the Wild Riders with a little bit of Milliput to smooth out the join.

Going for a fairly simple colour scheme with these guys, I'm thinking of adding patterning to their bodies once I'm a little more confident in getting the scheme down.

Then came the warriors, using a mix of Kairic Acolytes and Helstrider parts:

The aim for this unit was to experiment with skin tones to create some variation in the force. I've tried to match the colour scheme with the rubble on the base, (the blues more blue, reds more pink etc.)

I've decided that this will be a cavalry heavy mortal force (at least initially) but I thought that the marauders didn't really fit the aesthetic. After looking around I settled on the Warlocks from the DoK range. Just a head swap and hand change to the spear from the dark riders from the same box.

Finally here's the Lord and Mount. The lord is a chimera of bits. Head and right shoulder are from the Helstriders, torso is Kairic Acolytes, shield is from Sigvald and the weapon and legs are from the Slaanesh Lord on Mount.

The mount is pretty much finished, just needing a last few highlights. The lord is in the background of the shot and should hopefully be finished by tomorrow.

The lord is 90% finished, just a few gems and straps left to complete. Next on the block are the remaining 4 Marauders, then to finish the Centigors and finally onto the Deamons! Let me know what you think!

I like the idea of centaurus hellstrider! Besides looking cool, it seems also quite convenient for movement.

Thanks! I'm a bit stuck for what to do for Helstriders though as I've used all of the parts of the riders on other models :D I tried the wild riders but they didn't fit well on the mounts. I'm thinking maybe the snake bodies from DoK or using Seeker legs with Wild Rider torsos. I'll have to experiment...

Big update on quite a few things. Firstly, I've got the Centigors sprayed and ready to paint. I'm really happy with how these have turned out, hoping that the paint scheme doesn't ruin them 😅

Secondly I was looking at the Marauders and it occured to me that, whilst the spears looked good, they didn't look like javelins. I remembered that there were javelins in the Sisters of the Thorn box that I had already used for the Centigors. I'm much happier with how they look now and their weapons are similar to the spears of the Centigors so it ties the force together better. Not sure what I'll put on the banner yet, any suggestions?

Finally, I've been working on a Spawn/Doombull/not really sure but thought that it looked pretty neat.
