|The Milkmaids of Slaanesh.|
I decided to paint the originals first. I always liked the character of these models, they don't require assembly, and they aren't as intimidating as the Diaz sculpts.
|Nine original Daemonettes.|
|To strip or not to strip?|
|Druchii Violet wash.|
|Warpfiend Flesh layer.|
I followed that with a Slaanesh Grey / White Scar mix for the flesh highlight.
|The finished models.|
The hair and tail feathers were finished by using a Formula P3 Beaten Purple with Lucius Lilac dry brished over it followed by a Druchii Violet wash.
After that I did the eyes which I think I got mixed results from. I painted them black, then followed that with Caliban Green in the middle of the eye area and finished that with a dot of white. Looks creepy to me...
There you have it, the first few Daemonettes are done and they were fairly easy. These old models were all unique and some of them have sick details on them that you don't discover until you try to paint them. For example the bald one with the gold chest armor has a tiny Mark of Slaanesh carved into its forehead which is tricky as heck to paint. I look forward to seeing what surprises await me in the next batch...
|Opps! Forgot the claws on their feet! NOW they are done!|
