Handmaidens of Slaanesh

Oh dear, I seem to have started another army. But wait, this is one army that I really think I can finish in a matter of months rather than years. Daemons are high points cost, so the number of models per army is low, typically well below 100 for an army of 2000 points. So that's one reason. I also have the models already, so I won't have to hunt round for bargains. But the main reason is that these are some of the few models my wife actually likes and she said that if she could ever be persuaded to play, it would have to be these models. And as we all know, "yes dear" solves 90% of all problems so daemons it is, for the next few months at any rate.

This unit of 18 daemonettes will be added to 10 horrors, 5 screamers and a Tzeentch herald I already have painted from a few years back. That's over 500 points to get me well on the way. I will probably concentrate on the Slaanesh regiments to start with, to get some smaller games started with my new pupil. Ultimately I would like to use the army myself and would like it to contain one core unit from each of the deities, but that's not a short term prospect. For the time being, it will be mostly Slaanesh, with a reasonable slice of Tzeentch and a smattering of the other two.

Very cool, will you be adding some of those nice new seeker models?

I certainly will, though I have to work out a colour scheme for the steeds. I want them to complement the riders but not be the same, so they will be different to the typical GW scheme.

I would really like to see some close ups on these models. I am assuming you have used a glaze on the lower parts of the legs and I would really like to see it closer so I can copy the technique.

I had been hoping you would be getting some more work done on your Chaos so I can steal some ideas for mine but alas I will have to make do with stealing your daemons instead!
