Squaduary 2019 - Fiends of Slaanesh Finished!

Well, it's been a while since my last post. I won't lie, it's mostly due to a combination of laziness, Christmas, and then more laziness.

Despite the slow progress on the blog, and hobby stuff in general, I couldn't not enter Squaduary this year. I've finished both times on the other years the event has run, so I couldn't break my perfect winning streak!



With that in mind, I've painted a unit of 3 Fiends of Slaanesh. These are the new plastic models from the Wrath and Rapture set that came out recently. I can't really comment on the rest of the set though, as I bought these on eBay for just over £20, which I think is a pretty good deal really. They're  a really nice kit; with some excellent detail, and a lot of little features to be appreciated. In particular, I really like the sort of cute sea-horse side view of the heads. Something about it just works well when combined with the rest of the model. I also like the classic backwards legs and other twisted physical parodies on these models that echo the originals nicely.





Anyway, paint wise, I used the airbrush for the skin and then just enjoyed the painting process really. I don't paint that many daemons, so it was a nice change of pace from the normal stuff (ie burly armoured dudes!)



Well, that about wraps it up for another year!

    1. Thanks. I don't think I'll ever match last year's 40k Skaven that I did for Squaduary.

    2. Indeed, those may be nigh untoppable, that said these were a hell of an attempt to do so!

  4. Those look great! I really want to get my hands on some and see what I can do with them myself.

    1. I think they'll release them as a separate kit soon, so hopefully you won't have to wait too long.

    2. Yeah, and lord knows I have enough other things to keep myself busy until then, so I'm OK with waiting.

  5. Keeping the streak going strong, I like it and well played. They look great together, an army like that would be ace.
