I decided to take a short break from painting my high elves to dabble again in Chaos. Since we have a local group that occasionally runs Path To Glory on the old 6th edition rules with some house rule errata, I wanted to have a daemon prince ready for my champion to ascend to. It also was a fun modeling and converting task and a perfect warm up for some of my more ambitious projects!

Behold, WIP Slaanesh Daemon Prince, Slah'kar!

(the base will be changed for a square one you see in the background, I apologize for the picture quality

Thank you! I genuinely have no idea, it was in an assortment of bitz I bought with some Drukhari and dark elf stuff, so probably from one of the newer boxes from those armies?

I remember using the huge shield from the Dwarf Lord on Shieldbearers for Ogres once.

And the prince is done!

I really like how he turned out. Might take some pictures of the rest of the army later today.

I like the final result, he fits very well with the Slaaneshi theme. Love the shield!

There's something a bit disturbing about him Luna which is a good sign!

Thank you! Next up, Chaos Trolls!

I had a bunch of metal yetis and other bits and figured that they'd make for good mutated monsters with a few bits tacked on :)

I'm not a big fan of the model. But you've done a great job on them. They look suitably chaotic without shouting "I'm a conversion". And the purple blades work very well.

If I had to criticize one thing it's that the bases are a bit boring. It's a very personal thing. But especially bigger bases like these can use a bit more to make them interesting.

Thanks! I agree on the bases, but they're not fully done yet. I don't have a solid plan on what exactly to do with them, but I'm sure something will come to me. If nothing else, Nuln Oil and some grass :P

That would already help break up the base a bit and make it more interesting visually. Raiding your bits box a bit for some spare weapons / shields / chopped off arms / heads is another option if you want to go a bit further.

The champion of my daemonettes/Chosen! I quite like the conversion job on her, it was much more difficult to make her seem "championey" than making the standard bearer/musician, but I think it worked well.

Excellent Luna!

=D>

I had enough trouble getting two arms to stay on. They are so slender and fiddly. There's also something pleasingly old school about the way you've painted her.

The thing of course with a standard bearer and a musician is that if you stick on a standard or a musical instrument people usually get that they are the standard bearer / musician. Champions are a lot trickier. Reminds me of the metal HE special units. There the champion is the one with the slightly different sword / pose / cloak. If you don't tell anyone they'd never know.

Nice paint job. Very clean. Perhaps the "arms" could use some extra highlights. Though that could also be the picture.

Some warriors with an assortment of weapons. I would really need to unify their gear, but since they're a product of Path to Glory...

Slaanesh has the best whites, they're great. Yuge! :P

Thanks, it's an absolute pain in the patootie to paint though! I'm going to be trying out the Apothecary White as soon as my FLGS stocks it again, just to see if I can knock some time off from painting 5 layers of white. Doesn't help that I use a black primer, either...

I painted a white on black Slaanesh army Luna and I am feeling your pain.

I originally tried to paint my dragon prince horses white. I ended up so frustrated when painting the first one that I gave up and painted them dark grey. So I'm very impressed.
