Greater Demon-Part 2

o/

Part 1 was waaay back here (and it took a bit of searching for me to find, despite the CSM tag).

Anyways, The Doomed One, my greater demon of Malal is almost done! Here it is:
Greater demons have a tendency to pop out and get shot to death, so they're not that great, but for a mere 100pts., how can I resist? If it does make it into HTH, then it tends to fair quite well, no matter what it's fighting. I repainted the armor from my original color scheme as it invariably pops out of a Purge aspiring champion (which always pleases Malal greatly, fluff FTW!). Usually (but not always) its the poor bastard with the combi-melta as he's the least dangerous of my aspiring champions.

I still have my eternal loathing of basing minis (you would think that game 3 editions after I stopped over complicating my bases I'd be over that) but as this base is so large, I had to do something aside from my usual glue & flock mix. While I didn't have a spare Plague Marine helmet, I did dig out a regular CSM helmet out of the bitz box along with a CSM bolter and combat knife. These items no doubt were worn/held by the Purge marine that was so recently possessed!

Nice, simple, works for me.

I'm still outta clear coat, so the model isn't quite done. It still needs a coat of matte varnish, followed by 'ard coat to make certain areas looks wet (the bloody claws for example). However my sister's wedding is this weekend, so I won't be anywhere near a hobby shop for the next week or so (and I may be a bit late on posting next week as there will be NO hobby progress this weekend).

Nothing to say except that Daemon is awesome. Well don!

It's a nice paint scheme.

I still prefer the original metal Daemon Prince over the new plastic kit for some reason.....it's probably just a nostalgia thing I suppose...

Awesome indeed. Needs a booger on the tip of that finger on his left hand, as the model appears thrilled and proud of whatever it is beholding... :)

Nice work on that Daemon Prince- I like the dark colour scheme.

Oh, and it's nice to see someone giving out the nostalgic Malal love- maybe one day they'll find that key and release him :)

Thanks Guys!

No Joel, its a greater demon of Malal that's burst out a Plague Marine. Were it a greater demon of Nurgle on the other hand (pun intended) than the booger would be appropriate.
