Obscuras Daemons

  1. Stripping Whispers

    Well, I finally got around to stripping the two already painting Whispers in preparation for my colour changes/updates and general (hopefully) upgrading of my models.
    As the models are metal, I use a cheap acetone-based nail varnish remover. My models had several layers of paint on them, along with a gloss varnish and then matt. I left them in the acetone for 24 hours and then carefully peeled the paint off the models. It comes off fairly easily, but I wouldn't recommend scrubbing as it just ...
  2. Whispers Skin - Testers

    Have been starting my painting with the beautiful Whispers, finally finishing a unit will be a big deal for me . However, their previous skin-tone is very monochrome (Fortress Grey, Badab Black Wash, Codex Grey, Skull White) and I was hoping to put some colour into it. Observer suggested purples and blues and this struck a chord, while my boyfriend suggested I use flesh tones as the interim so the blue would have a greater contrast.
    So far, I have only done washes over Fortress Grey: ...
  3. Fiends Conversion

    Considering doing a new daemons of Obscuras conversion, this time for the Fiends, so I can have a valid army list for normal Warhammer 40k!The Fiends are quick and lethal with rending attacks. Inspiration struck in the form of the Steed of Slaanesh from the Slaanesh Champion box and the new Ravener's plastic box. By these powers combined, I give you a quick Photoshop of what the resulting models would look like, with suitable change of colour scheme.Daemonette bodies, Ravener (Tyranids) tails. Heavy ...
  4. Whisper (Daemonettes on Steeds of Slaanesh) Bases

    Well, some of the Whispers have been based and finished, ready for base-coating, so here they are. I went for a rubble and destroyed urban feel for the bases. I recently ordered some of the new Forge World weathering powders so will probably be using a lot of the concrete dust effects when I paint them.Like a lot of painters, I look at the painting on my older figures and cringe. Unfortunately I don't want to strip these models become they did come out so well at the time. Still unsure, do you think ...
  5. Obscuras Daemons - Warhammer 40k Army List

    I know that this Blog is under Painting/Modelling, however I am going to go off-topic again just to add in my current 1,500 point army list for 40k. As I have a terrible memory, I like to have everything written down and the rules set out after my army list, for that time I get Aura of Acquiescence mixed up with Transfixing Gaze (like the last time I played :P) or can't remember what Furious Charge does again.Warning: This is long.------DAEMONS OF OBSCURAS ARMY LIST

  6. The To Do List

    Partly for my own reference, and for anyone who reads this to look forward to, a short list of things that I need to finish doing on my Obscuras Daemons army. I will write up a similar list for Wood Eldar sometime. The side-projects can go hang until I get really bored .Get the last few models that I need for my army: 1 Screamer, 1 Seeker of Slaanesh and 2 Horrors.Funnily enough, I managed to get a single Seeker, who have been as rare as gold recently (and going at similar prices), and a ...
  7. The Daemons (Conversions and Paintjobs)

    Shadow, ice, darkness, fear. I took the general theme of choosing three colours for your army, a base, a complement and an accent. I chose black as my base (obviously), white as the complement, and blue as my accent. Silver was favoured for metallic over golds to keep the colour scheme as cool as possible.ShadowphytesFor the generic warriors of Obscuras, I chose Horrors as the base and for the rules. I filled in the gaping mouth with green stuff and then drilled a hole into the top of their ...
  8. The Tale of Obscuras

    My first army is Chaos Daemons (or Daemons/Hordes of Chaos when I played WFB). About seven years ago I found mention of a Chaos God called Obscuras on Warhammer.net. I am not sure if this has ever been canon, though statements range from it being canon in an old version of WFB, WFRP, or never been canon at all but fanmade. Regardless, I really liked the idea and I incorporated it into my army, converting my miniatures to reflect it. The background for WFB was spelt out in the article I found, however ...
