The Daemon Host is finished, and some minor progress on the henchmen.

Hi guys, GR here with a small update.

I've managed to put some paint on the Daemon Host last night, and got some pictures of him. To be honest, I'm kinda on the fence on the paint job - while I think it conveys a good feel, I think it could have been better - the freehanded scripture on his body just didn't want to go as planned, and the transitions on his torso isn't as smooth as I'd like. The latter I blame my crappy apartment lights for - I usually paint at my gaming club, where there's much better lighting. Bad lighting has a tendency to mask colour tone problems and transitions, and I think that's what happened here.

Anyway, enough with the excuses - here he is, and I still think he's turned out pretty well:

I also got some more work done on the preacher (now he has 3, count 'em 3!!! loudspeakers to preach the emperors holy words):

... And some cables for the arco flagellants helmet combat drug supply:


  1. That daemonhost is just sickeningly good

  2. Daemonhost turned out great! The red robes are particulary nice.¨
    That said, I can understand what you mean about the scribbles. They lack a design to them - would have been cooler if they created a pattern instead of being just random lines of text.

    The preacher looks fantastic! Love the speakers!
    Not completely convinced about the head though - it makes him look a little surprised...
    Also - the big purity seal on the speaker looks a little out of place. It flowing works against the rest of the model - perhaps replace it with a seal made from plasticard or foil?

  3. Thanks!

    @ Jeff Vader: Very good points - I may redo the scribbles at some point - maybe the skin as well. He is varnished, but it's airbrushed on, so I think it's thin enough to repaint.

    I'll look into the other things as well. :) Thanks for taking the time to elaborate - Your own work is incredible. :)
