Forgive the bland title- this model will inevitably be playing a Keeper of Secrets but I've not decided what to call her yet.

This wonderful model comes from the Creature Caster Kickstarter campaign. To say that it was delayed a bit is an understatement (the original delivery estimate was November 2014) but the creator stuck doggedly to his task and came through eventually. I've posted a review of the figure with pictures of the unassembled pieces here on my blog.

After a couple of thorough washes in warm water and good old fashioned Fairy, I got the model together fairly easily, though there was a fair amount of filling and cleaning to do. The model didn't come with instructions, but the various pegs and fittings were well enough designed that it was quite easy to work out the assembly from the Kickstarter pictures. Actually painting the thing was more challenging than I was expecting. With most of my Slaanesh models, I like to do the skin white, horns and tentacles pink, and things like talons black, but on this model the detail tended to flow from one element to another without any real demarcation, which made it tricky to work out what colour should go where. In the end, I painted the whole thing Administratum Grey, and then roughed in the pink where I thought it looked right (starting with Pink Horror) before finally adding the black. After a wash of gloss Nuln Oil, I then built the pink up through Emperor's Children to Fulgrim Pink almost completely by drybrushing, which not only saved a lot of time but also left a fair amount of pink on the skin bordering the pink areas. I then worked up the skin through grey to white, using thin layers of grey to blend the pink into the skin. The black was painted onto the grey quite thin, allowing some of the grey to show through and largely removing the need to highlight it. The sword was deliberately kept simple to avoid it grabbing too much focus, though I did wash the blade with a purple glaze before highlighting it to add some interest.

The rock she's standing on was largely left alone after the wash, allowing the model to stand out from it. I'm not generally a fan of pet rocks, but this one is integral to the model's pose and also helps balance the thing, so I left it alone, contenting myself with adding a 50mm GW base underneath. The base was finished in my usual style, with a small clump of flowers, as well as some textured green and static grass added in a couple of patches on the rock to look like some sort of moss, which was then washed with a little Typhus Corrosion and glossed after the varnish. I also added some gloss to most of the black areas to set them off a little.

Now THAT'S a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh! Beautiful, alluring yet extremely dangerous at the same time. Beautiful paint job, too. A great model deserves great painting. Great work, mate!
