By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the current rage in the Age of Sigmar speculation pens – that the Dark Prince is gone/dead/replaced/retconned or something similar. Add swearwords, clickbait and endless threats of quitting the game for dramatic effect. But what do we really know about the subject at this point?
Well, that took way longer than I expected, but here they are – the first three of my girls. I’m very pleased with how they turned out, being every bit as finicky and troublesome to paint as they look.
I finally managed to finish up the four test Daemonettes last night, sorting out the final few details and ironing out the last colour combinations to go for with my proper models. I’ve actually grown a lot fonder of the plastic Daemonettes over the course of this process – they are honestly really nice models to work with, and I suspect they’d command much more regard if they weren’t universally shunned for replacing the legendary J.D. ones.
It’s been a busy week with work, so I’ve gotten little time to do any modelling or painting; I’ve almost finished up the four test models and more or less nailed down the core colour variants I want to go with. With some time off tomorrow, I hope to finish them up and be able to post them within too long, so I can actually start painting some real miniatures.
But for now, I want to show off where I’m at with the first two Heralds of Slaanesh!
When you’ve been around the hobby for two decades, simply “starting a new project” tends to be futile. In terms of time, obviously (anyone that’s been around that long likely have a combination of work, family and other factors that limit their actual hobby time), but also in terms of challenge. When you’re about to start your umpteenth army, what do you do to motivate yourself?
