Hi there,
I have been working on Daemons of Chaos as my new fantasy army and I want to add a Keeper of Secrets to my army. The only problem is that I absolutely LOATH the current GW model. I do very much like the Forgeworld Keeper, however, as you can imagine, I am not super excited about spending $150 on one. I am hoping that you guys can point me in the right direction as to what I can do as an alternative.

Searching the internet I came accross an old model from Heresy called the Spined Netherlord. I thought this model was awesome and would make an AWESOME base for the keeper, however, I find out that the old model is OOP and the HeresyMiniatures site is only selling a newer, and in my mind less perfect Netherlord II. http://www.heresyminiatures.com/images/hm014_1_ianhaynes.jpg

So I have a few questions. Do you think the Netherlod II model would be a suitable base for conversion to Keeper? Does anyone have any other ideas for conversions? Thanks so much.


I just found this conversion. It is freaking AMAZING. I would love to do this, however, I am not sure if my modeling skills are up to snuff.

Ultraforge one isn't bad at all - its also considerably cheaper than FW, and not a lot more than the GW one.

Keeper of Secrets doesn't seem to get a lot of airtime on the interwebs. The only one I can think of is this (http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/90/234630.page#939180). I've always favoured ones that don't look like just a massive daemonette. Have you considered an enormous spider?

I converted my own (see the thing in my icon.) I used a Tyranid Warrior, the tail and claws from an old fiend, the legs, neck and head from an old steed of Slaanesh, and a whole lot of greenstuff.

I think she gets the point across well. I also have the 54mm Sophie from Reaper, but she's more of a Daemon Princess because of the wings.

Ultraforge is working on another Keeper of Secrets-esque Great Demon, the name's Shiva the Destroyer or something.

Some WIP picture and concept art, stolen from someone's post here on Warseer.

As long as it looks big, daemonic, is pink/purple and has slaanesh iconography anything will do other than the other gw greater daemons, how about a small conversion of Be'Lakor or Gulavhar?

I am pretty sure I going to splurge and go for the Forgeworld one. Out of curiousity. Does anyone have any suggestions for buying from Forgeworld. The GW bunker in my area can order Forgeworld and I get free shipping. I also could order online. Which would you guys suggest?

I went through this dilemna a few months ago and ended up getting the Forgeworld model at Games Day (so no shipping costs). While expensive, I spent a ton of time assembling the model, pinning everything and bending the hair into the correct shapes. What I'm getting at is I got a lot of entertainment out of the $150 before it ever hit the table, so it was well worth it to me.

A giant in a Balenciaga gown and a tiara, with one of those fancy cigarette holders. Always perfume the model to hell and back.

I just might do this.

I do not want to be rude to you guys, but I am very strongly against the pleasure daemon and the such. They just bother me. I feel like they are not daemon looking at all, and all the nakedness is just obnoxious to me. There is a place for that, in my mind, but not on my models.

The C'tan Deciever is a good place to start for an alternate conversion for a Keeper of Secrets.
