|How's this for a horde formation? :)|
So with this mental challenge of trying to source cheaper DoC models, it donned on me that I might have over ordered and should double check what I had, and what I still needed.
Thankfully the painting around the house is finished, and I had the chance to dig out all the Daemons I have so far, be they assembled or not, and check the latest status. I am happy to see that my eBaying has not bought too many more than I wanted to own a this time.
Starting with the ones getting painting love first.. the Daemonettes ( seen above ) are rocking it out at exactly 100 at the moment! I have 20 still in their boxes from my last trip to UK, and I will be assembling them soon enough, and getting them some paint during my next trip abroad ( which is next week to Belgium ). This combined with the 60 that I have finished, the 10 that I need to move to the new bases, and the 10 that are already primed and waiting for paint, means I have hit the quota here! Yay!
Again a real mis-mash of models here. Starting off with the 35 really OOP big hand metals, 6 OOP metals, 40 of the new plastics, and then my 20 floating eyeball conversions that I made the night before a tournament.
I actually like them all, and although I probably should not have the eyeball ones, I will keep them for now, and replace them at a later date. I think they make the unit a bit more unique which is kind of needed, but at the same time not really. So long as the colors all tie in I think they will work out nicely. Pinks and blues will be the main colors of choice here obviously.
Originally I was using VC Crypt Ghouls with Skeleton swords. Which is a nice little conversion to say the least. Will show them off more in another post later on.
The other "conversion" if you can call them that was using the older GW Zombies. Just painted differently. Yes.. I know.. sad.. But when gaming on a budget ( as I used to but am not at the moment?!?! ) you made due with what you had! However now I do have quite a few of the OOP metals, the current metals, and even some metals from Heresy. I have to say, that these guys are going to be my heaviest unit, as almost all the models are metal!
Currently they sit at 60 with 6 more in transit for them, and I am hoping to pick up more of the Heresy Blights, and maybe even ghouls ( there I go using things I shouldn't ) to fill out their ranks. A real collection in there, that hopefully will look like a shambling horde or pus and mucus when all finished.
So there you have it.. where I am currently with the Daemons project. Hopefully I can keep the momentum going and get them done before the end of the year. What with work travels, and other commissions usually taking up my time, I am hoping that I can make quite the impact on them when I focus or even while travelling due to their limited palette of colors.
Hope you liked..
