2014 Daemonette Project

I finished her up early in the month, but I'm just finally getting around to posting about her. Been a busy month.

I managed to almost entirely avoid purple on her, unlike all the others. She has two little gems where the cloth connects to the chains and that's all I did in purple. I wanted to go for a creamy yellow skin-tone, something lighter than the 2012 model.

This one has a little bit less in the details department that previous ones. When I selected the model for this year, I made sure to pick one I had not done before, although she is very similar to last year's. There is a surprising amount of variety in the sculpts of these models. I originally thought there were only 6 but I think that all ten that came in the original box were slightly different.

The base is, I believe, a Secret Weapon Miniatures base. I'm not too sure, because I pulled it from my bag of vagabond bases. I've been to a lot of events, and most give out bases as part of their swag bags. I started throwing them all in a single bag so there's a weird assortment of stuff in there now.

I put some Realistic Water in the base, and around the skulls, too, for a little muddy marsh effect. Basically, wherever she is, it's probably a place you don't want to be.

The claws are always the hardest part of these ladies for me. I'll probably do another knife-wielding hand next year, just to make it a little easier on me. Unfortunately, there are very few of those hands in the kit, mostly claws.

For comparison, here she is with the previous year's Daemonettes.

All in a row.

I hate to say it but my 2012 is still, I think, the best of the bunch. I do see some improvement from last year to this year, but 2012 blows all three of them out of the water. I wish I knew what I did to make her look so great.

Now that I've taken some nice photos of her, I'll add the year to her base, too. I'm weirdly looking forward to doing this year's already, though, because she'll be number five.

For previous posts on this project, you can check out the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Daemonettes.

  1. The base on this model is fantastic I love how slimy the skulls look. I also want to steal you idea of painting 1 of the same type of model every year. What a great idea to see your progress! Now I jut need to find a box I will enjoy revisiting year after year.
