Alrighty,
So those of you familiar with the more demonic sections of portent have seen me post on most demon lists and tacticas that wander our way. In many of them I speak of my lovely little demon army, and I decided to finally show it off!

You'll forgive me, I realized later that most of the pictures are blurry-so I'll post the few good ones, and get your feedback there.

But first, the obligatory workspace pictures!

So now that you know what I'm working with, let me show you the army!

This is my Baby-doll soul grinder. This happened because my girlfriend was giving me crap about playing with "dolls" so I stole one of her old toys and chopped it up! We both win!

This is the Herald of Slaanesh. I'm sorry she's so crummy, but it gives you a good idea of how I got her on a chariot.

This is my Herald of Khorne. Same deal as the slaaneshi version, just used some oldschool demons to represent the finer breed. :D

So on to the troops-I'm sorry these pictures are even worse!

You'll notice some of the blue spirals I've painted on them, I did this recently because I think it helps tie them in with the rest of the army. The spiral is a constant motif I use, and the blue is a great counterbalance to the yellow and grey. There are two squads of 8 mixed in there with Fury.

These are my girls :D
Most people on warseer don't like them so much, but I run a squad of 12. Funny thing is, when I was painting their toenails, my girlfriend was painting her toenails too... :(

These are bog standard Plague Bearers. I like the models much more when they're painted in a subdued sort of way, when GW paints them I think they look terrible! There's 14 there with an Icon.

So on to the elites!

Four bloodcrushers. I decided to use them without their riders because I really liked the idea of them just having escaped their pens, ready to tear some bloodletters a new one-only to be dropped onto an unsuspecting world!
They have a musician, fury and an icon.

These are my counts as fiends. There was no way I was going to pay so much money for metal models I really disliked. So I bought the wave of spawn set for much cheaper! There are 12 all said and done, one squad has "stuff" on their back, the other is clean to tell the difference.

This was the first model I bought for the army. So in a lot of ways he decided the general color scheme, and the motif (the spirals). Finally, you'll notice his sword is a bit amputated...that's because I broke it like six times trying to fit it into my army transport-so I just trimmed it down and repainted it!

For a second your juggernauts looked like robotic cattle to me. Maybe they need a little color?

Some other details of the Soul Grinders

This is a side shot of the "male" grinder. The spirals help tie him in with the rest of the army, I think!

Closeup of the Babie's face. Yeah. I gave her lipstick. I also put some "tattoos" or whatever on her to make her a bit less..er.. cute.

This is a closeup of the other grinder-just so you can make sure he's been brushing his teeth!

And my crown jewel!
A slaanesh demon prince heavily converted out of an old Inquisitor figure. I actually got down and dirty for the first with GS on this thing-giving it some proper female anatomy and resculpting part of the right arm into a proper tentacle. I also sculpted it a tongue-it has to have a tongue!

http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k27/Nailgraizer/Demons/167.jpg

I loved the dynamic pose, so I propped it up on a few layers of basing, to give it a more "hurried" feel.

Gives you an idea of the shoulder pad I stole from a CSM sprue, and the backpack from a Slaanesh Noise Marine. You can also see some of the stim/chemical/drug injectors.

This one's kinda blurry (got too close trying to show off the tentacle) but I hope you get the idea about the tongue and the tentacle!

Another blurry picture, sorry!
This is meant to show off the GS work I did giving her a breast. Don't worry, I got endless crap from the better half because of how much time I agonized over it! The next thing I have planned for "it" is a pierced nipple. But alas, the nipple is evading my better sense of artistry.

That was actually the point!

Like I said, I really wanted them to look like they had just broken out of their pens, and were galloping around goring things willy-nilly!
