Lesser Daemon of Chaos







Well, it wouldn't be much of a Chaos army without a Daemon Prince, right? Here's DP#1. Affectionately referred to as The Maggot Prince.

He's actually one of my very first conversions (seen in the final few pictures) way back in 2011. Back then I did my best to extend every kit I had. Here, that meant turning a left-over torso and arm bitz into a second Daemon Prince for my then Cthulhu-themed CSM army. As you can see, though, his new incarnation is quite a bit different. New arms, new torso, spine, wings, face, etc. But the bulk of the maggot body is still there.

Hopefully my modelling and painting skills have improved since then!

Thanks, Edreynaline! At first I was planning on using a lot of the Nurgle's Rot green ooze effect but, it just didn't seem quite right... The blood really makes it more gruesome and Nurgley, anyway.

Comments are always appreciated! I'd love to get even more feedback from the community but I'm content to just keep putting my work out there. I silently stalked the dakka blogs for 2+ years before I posted anything. Getting a lot of inspiration from other people's work without ever having let them know. Hopefully people will get the same from my posts.

Damn i love this blog! I'm doing iron warriors as my main chaos army, but i'm also including detachments of every god. I really like what you've done with your rhinos and well, your entire blog is awesome!

I did a similar thing on my renegade chimera by putting the pile of corpses from the corpse cart on the back of the chimera to resemble bodies collected by the renegades to use as leftover body parts for some crazy surgeons and stuff

Gonna follow this blog closely

You just have to admire your eye for detail, I always love the human abominations seeping from the bodies of your nurgle Demons splattered with blood and putrid entrails

Nice creativity keep it coming and never lose your vision for nurgle

A new challenger approaches! Daemon Prince #2. Properly known as "The Butcher."

From the minute the Chaos codex was released in 2012, I knew I needed a Daemon Prince with the Black Mace. It's just SO. DAMN. COOL. A daemonic weapon that banishes enemies for failing a toughness test? Yes, please! I wanted to convey this infantry-slaughtering weapon somehow... so I gathered up some old Necrons laying around and, BAM! Black Mace Prince! He flies though the skies (jinking + shrouded!) and takes out entire swathes of infantry. Hence: "The Butcher"!

Just gets better every update that is classic taking out a unit of necrons and a clever way of elevating the model

The only thing I would have liked to have seen was the first necron of impact shattered from the initial blow, but otherwise totally awesome work

Yeah, I agree about the shattering blow... I tried to show a few of the Necrons being smashed (missing limbs, head, sparks flying, etc.) but it really looks like they're all just being swept up by the massive mace. Oh well.

No I think you have done an amazing job portraying the impact especially the guy missing his head and arm with sparks, I just thought the one being hit by the actual club would have took an absolute beaten and exploded.

But don't take it as an criticism it was more a creative observation

Criticism is always welcome. I think you were spot on about showing a little more damage. The model is good but it's certainly not perfect! But criticism helps for future models down the road.

Very original, very well done! I love armies like this, that are fresh and new in the way they interpret 40k - it expands the galaxy/setting I enjoy and it is almost like a new miniatures line.

I'm pretty sure this type of work is what keeps me involved in the 40k universe. New rules bore me. New armies are eh. But when I look through forums and see people giving new spins to armies I've seen since for years that totally rewrite how I thought of the army. That is what keeps me coming back. Thanks for all the great work man and please keep sharing. An army this fantastic cannot go without being noticed.

Wow! It's fantastic to hear such good feedback. I'm always a bit worried when creating/converting new models that my opponents will cry foul when I put them on the board. Different height, width, LOS, etc., etc. Compliments like these make it easy to keep coming back!

Here's a quick WIP of my Belakor. And another photo where you can see the completed--albeit unpainted--model in the background. I'll upload the finished pictures tomorrow when there's daylight. Photos always look terrible when I take them at night.

Well not being a gamer just a collector I never understand the model issues , but I would have thought as long as the boundaries were discussed before play I don't see what the problem is

However as far creativity to goes I look forward to each update, keep it up mate and never be put off

Well, here he is: Belakor! Although in the Wild Crusade, he's known as "The Lurker in the Shadows."

On the model itself, I tried to convey two things: 1) that he's a Daemon Prince which can F*** things up in CC with his armorbane/fleshbane sword; and 2) that he's a hell of a spell-slinger. Hell pun not intended (though it should have been, dammit).

So, on #1, the base model is clearly a stock Daemon Prince. However, the legs have been cut down and re-positioned in less of a "come at me bro" blocky stance to more of a confident, loose stride forward. Of course, there's also the giant magical sword which screams CC monster. For #2, how the hell do you make a Daemon Prince look magical? Easy! Throw on a wizard's robe! Paint it up in blue/purple (nothing says magic like Tzeentch!) and away we go.

Thanks, guys! The Belakor conversion is certainly more subtle than my other work. Since painting him up, I've often wanted to repaint his cloak to a darker grey or brown... he sticks out like a sore thumb in my more-muted paint scheme of flesh and pastel tones.

What good would a crusade be if it didn't convert (read: forcefully) some loyal masses? Behold, the converted worshipers of the Wild Crusade! In game, they are zombie cultists. The Wild Crusade "converts" unbelievers by, well, you get the picture.

First I'll show some pictures from a few years back. They began as "Lesser Daemons" in the Chaos Marines 5th Edition Codex. These guys were one of my very first 40k projects in my Cthulhu themed CSM army. The idea was summoned zombies, complete with swirling warp pools as bases. The execution was pretty shoddy.

They sat on a shelf unused for 3 years. Now they've been re-purposed as cultists in my Nurgle-themed CSM force. A little rebasing and re-painting does wonders!
