Daemon Prince Conversions x 3
If Giger, Lovecraft and Tolkein went to Vraks.
This weekend, between other projects, I whipped-up three flying Daemon Princes. The base of these conversions, was the Balrog kit GW produces. After removing the "flames", and replacing the gaps with sculpted putty, I worked out this head treatment:
This is a combination of bits from the Dryad kit for the Cthulhu tentacles, as well as the knee-guard from a Dust model for the helmet. Also included, is the increasingly-mandatory Maulerfiend tentacle. I experimented with an etched-brass logo on the front of the mask, but I think the models works better without it.
I posed all three a bit differently, for variation. I armed them with pistol-mounted hades autocannons. Think of it as a representation of psychic potency.
Again, these models were a "break" project this weekend. Between working with resin and putty on my Malifaux board, I would run through a few steps on these guys. For an "accidental" project, I am happy with how this trio came out.
All in all, it has been a productive summer. Now I just need to finish that Malifaux in time for Halloween...
