Hey Gang, it's been a busy couple of weeks for me, but I wanted to bring you all a little update on the Daemons.
I have about 2500pts worth of Daemons (for both 40k and WHFB) and just recently purchased what I consider to be my "last" Daemon model. I'm sure I will add lots of new toys to the collection in the future, but at this point in time I am going to consider this army complete (although I still need paint my last few additions).
Anyways, the last model that I wanted to round out my collection for 40K Daemons was a Soul Grinder. The model and unit is one of the few models in the range that is for 40k only, and does not have a WHFB counterpart.
These are essentially giant daemon dreadnoughts that are a fusion of daemonic essence and chaotic mechanisms. They dedicate all of the souls they extinguish to the infernal forges of their daemon masters.
In game terms, the reason I wanted one was to help me deal with massive amounts of troops on the board. With an upgraded weapon option, this guy spits a template, has a high rate of fire assault weapon, and can drop a 5" template that will decimate even the heartiest of Space Marines!
Okay, onto the good stuff:
|This is a LARGE model. The only real reason to magnetize this guy is for ease of transport.|
|There is a pretty natural division of these two halves. They were built entirely separately from one another and fit together perfectly!|
|The deadly half|
|The scary half|
|I drilled the holes for the magnet in the spine, and the one in the front. For the magnet inside the body, I had to build a small platform out of plasticard in order to attach a magnet there.|
|I wanted to be sure to have a vertical magnet as well as a horizontal magnet to ensure that the two halves of this model would not come undone accidently.|
|3 magnets may have been overkill... Better safe than sorry though I suppose.|
Well, that's it for this time. All of my Daemons are now built, and I only have a few left to paint! The force is really coming together.
Until Next Time,
