With my Word Bearers coming along nicely I'm fast getting to the point where I can consider taking a second HQ. The plan at the moment is to take a sorcerer with malefic daemonology and summon some daemons to distract my opponents.
With that in mind I've been considering how to convert some heralds, and as I currently have a half painted unit of daemonettes sitting on my desk I'm starting with Slaanesh. I've never really liked the 'all girl demons all the time' that GW does, so I've been thinking of ways to make them look more daemonic than girly. Slaanesh has always been somewhat androgynous, so I wanted to keep that feel with
her it. I really quite like the old style Greater Daemon, so I've based my herald around this guy. Current reasoning that this herald is rising in power and will soon become a greater daemon rather than being a handmaiden as is mentioned in the unit entry of the daemons codex.
For the herald I started with a bloodletter as a base model and switched out the torso for one of the slaaneshi marauder cavalry. These kit's also have some fantastic arms, so I cut one of those down to make a claw arm, and then cut the end off another to make his sword.
Before I paint
him it, I may end up adding some straps to his its head, a loincloth and maybe a tail, though I'm not certain he it needs a tail.
