WargamerAU Forums _ Modelling Diaries _ [40K] Slaanesh warband

Posted by: Magnus Jul 27 2008, 02:53 PM

Well , I've almost finished my deathguard, just waiting for a new dreadnought and psker to get me upto 2000 points worth. That should keep me happy regardless of army size. So whats next?

Well the idea is too make a slaanesh warband (1500 points) of just troops and a couple of HQ. Heres a quick list

HQ: 1 Daemon Prince with a lash of Submission ; Mark of Slaanesh

1 Summoned Greater Daemon (just cos I want a FW GD of slaanesh)

16 Chaos Space Marines with 2 flamers & Mark of Slaanesh with an Aspiring Champion with PS

16 Chaos Space Marines with 2 meltas & Mark of Slaanesh with an Aspiring Champion with PF

12 Chaos Space Marines with a Lascannon Mark of Slaanesh

12 Chaos Space Marines with a Lascannon Mark of Slaanesh

12 Chaos Space Marines with a Lascannon Mark of Slaanesh

72 models.

You get the idea, I have made a few mental changes but don't have an upto date list. So lots of slaanesh goodness running all over the place....


Its a modeling project that hopefully will be fun to play with and goood to look at. The modeling idea is to use a combination of a CSM and a Demonette model to make a slaanesh warrior.

Have a look at a test one.

So basically take 1 daemonette to make this model by cutting of shoulder,neck and thing that hangs down (cant remember name at the moment). Glue onto a CSM body and add a demonette head, claw and tail. I was a bit worried re scale but I think it looks ok. I have used the slaanesh shoulder pad from AC sprue. Not sure where I will get 70 of them from though :shock: Mounted on a suitable alien type base .One issue is that I will waste a power load of daemonettes but I might be able to make some GS molds for necks and shoulders. In a deamonnete box you get heaps of arms and 14/15 heads.

Paint scheme, I think I'll do a white, purple and black scheme a lot like the daemonettes in the daemon codex

What do you think, or comments? armata_PDT_05.gif

Just an update of my list. I have some more models made up but no undercoat yet!

1 Chaos Sorceror with Gift of Chaos; Mark of Slaanesh

6 Terminators with Chain Fist Mark of Slaanesh

6 Possessed with Mark of Slaanesh

IPB Image

16 Chaos Space Marines with 2 Meltagun Mark of Slaanesh also a AC with aPower Weapon

IPB Image

10 Chaos Space Marines with a Lascannon

10 Chaos Space Marines with a Lascannon

6 Summoned Lesser Daemon

9 Havocs with 3 Missile Launchers

66 models all up, all will have a slaanesh look.

Not sure about the terminators , Could be a GD instead (the forge world one) and some more Lessor
demons.

Cheers mate, Slaanesh have always been my favorite theme in 40K

I've made up some more girls , still need custom shoulder pads and green stuff icons etc.

IPB Image

and some troopers that need more icons etc

IPB Image

This is one made using the Demotte horn as a head, it sort of works.

IPB Image

I must admit to seeing Sirath's white Tau and thinking very cool. I'm going to try white and purple/pink. I was going to make them all before a test paint, but I don't think I can wait. biggrin.gif

Next squad will be the dreadlock imitators of the Keeper of Secrets

IPB Image

I just have to work out how to make the hair, thinking thin copper wire wrapped out thicker wire? The idea is to have a squad or two who worship the KoS and have tried to copy her...So horns and hair with spikes...

These are some of my test models. Obviously not the finished article but it my give you an idea of what I'm after. I'm going to use a very limited Palette Purple,black,white,skin and red. Combined with lots of washes to get the final shade. not sure on infected base colors yet. May just do granite and skin tones a lot like the demo ones.

Red wash on white

Black wash on white

Blue wash on white

all together

I sort of like the red wash on white the middle figure . hmmm

Feedback much appreciated

Posted by: Grey Oct 4 2008, 06:09 PM

I like the red wash. It looks more Slaaneshy, and that guy stands out from the other two when you out them together.

Are they wearing business shoes intentionally, or are their feet just not painted yet?

If you want a ton of really thin wire find a PC someone has dumped and rip out the power supply, the cabling is made of bundles of really thin gauge wire.

I'm on it. I might even put some thread around the outside or maybe some small bit of GS to texture it up.

Cheers

Red wash FTW! cool models, keep it coming armata_PDT_37.gif

Posted by: Magnus Oct 9 2008, 04:19 PM

Thanks for the comments

Hair is my first attempts at making some dreads. Bits of copper wire wrapped with cotton and then inked and painted. Model is will probably be replaced with a new one but the idea is sound. Idea is too have 2 maybe 3 squads of to these boys.

IPB ImageIPB Image

Here is the same model with the moulded shoulder pad. Its off a old slaanesh banner. Its a small man....

IPB Image

Just playing around but I sort of like it!

I must admit the head is a bit rough as well ;-) I'm on the search for some bare heads for these squads.


Posted by: Magnus Nov 22 2008, 09:03 AM

I've been distracted by attending the NZ masters but here are some stuff I've made up

Some more troops

IPB Image
IPB Image

Some terminators with GD of slaanesh arms (you can still see the old red paint!)

IPB Image
IPB Image

A new GD

IPB Image
IPB Image

and my Slaanesh lord with a blissgiver

IPB Image
IPB Image

I might have to start painting soon as I have no more excuses (apart from making some Lessor Demons) and some more troops to get the boys upto 2000 points.

Forge world, I have not put on the spikes yet or the dreadlock looking hair. I love the FW stuff. biggrin.gif

have a look at http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/ just make sure you hide your wallet first.

I also tweaked my list a little, still non mech and lots of CSM spam

1 Slaaneshi Lord with a Daemon weapon ; Mark of Slaanesh

1 Summoned Greater Daemon

6 Chaos Space Marines terminators 1 H Flamer & Mark of Slaanesh with an Aspiring Champion with CF

15 Chaos Space Marines with 2 meltas & Mark of Slaanesh with an Aspiring Champion with PF

10 Chaos Space Marines with a Autocannon and flamer with Mark of Slaanesh

10 Chaos Space Marines with a Missile launcher and a flamer with an AC and Mark of Slaanesh

10 Chaos Space Marines with a 1 Lascannon and flamer

8 Havocs with 3 Missile launchers

61 models.

I've dropped the Lash and taken a Lord just because you dont see many lords anymore. Its almost like every CSM army is lead by a DP.

Well it been along time between post. Had a few problem with camera, took it too the beach and got sand in it and basically its buggered.

Oh well. Some base coating has been done...

Some lessor damons, 3 different phases od daemonhoods,

1/2 body and claws.
IPB Image

2 claws
IPB Image

1 claw
IPB Image

some troops
IPB Image

I have moved on from the white paint scheme as I think its too bland.
I will still do the NMM, and thinking of gold trim on shoulder pads ? No sure yet. might just do a contrasting blue or green?

comments appreciated

BTW I tried the citadel washes and I was quite impressed. They are heaps better than old ones. I still prefer my magic sauce but they are good for the first few coats. The foundation paints are great but no pink?

Posted by: Sirath Jan 19 2009, 06:23 AM

Hehe, The Slaanesh Horde is looking good Magnus...
Needs more Tentacles IMO.

Where are teh Lesser Daemons in the list above?

Posted by: Teh_Frm4terer Jan 21 2009, 07:22 PM

Awesome, this whole thread is awesome.

I've had to expand to 1750 which my math says is about 18 Lessor D's
I'm just playing around with the colors really Sirath. I got some army painter dipping paint today so will give that a whirl.
PS .
Tentacles, I've gone for claws instead.

Posted by: Magnus Jan 27 2009, 03:55 PM

I think I've almost done the Havocs. I need to highlight weapons and other critical parts but they are mostly done. The bases are taking heaps of time to do and need a final highlight with pink, they are MA infested bases with lots of pink and bloods. Its a bit hard to see but its a purple to pink paint scheme

Havocs.
IPB Image

Thanks

Posted by: Magnus Jan 31 2009, 04:13 PM

Based coated GD for a break from painting the troops.

First thing is that its a hard model to paint, hold and work with. I broke of a horn and dread breaking anything else. The hair is removable at this stage so I can paint the back. I have to highlight,blend etc but it sort of looking like part of the army.

Plus a shot of my other armies and painting setup.

Hey Jack, its all about how many models you have biggrin.gif

I have been collecting for years.... armata_PDT_04.gif

Looking good Brucie,
Almost looks like a marble pastel-pearl effect on the armour.
Are you worried the colour may not be vibrant enough?

Far too much Chaos on those shelves!

Posted by: mark_logue Feb 1 2009, 10:12 AM

The Greater Daemon is very impressive! That looks like one serious collection on those book shelves.

I need to make sure they do stand out. I have been experimenting with different washes etc.


Cheers

That is one HUGE plasticrack addiction you got going?

How long can you go without touching them before you get shivers?
