I have decided to bite the bullet and actually do something with the box of Dwarf sky-pirates I bought from GW (Arkanauts). I have already put scale pix up in my Squat thread on here and it was immediately obvious that they were not suitable for that army... so I thought it was the right time to try out making a Demiurg instead. The Demiurg are another race in the GW universe but they have very little fluff and even less in the way of images so I have had to use poetic licence.
Anyway, here's the first one. The arms are just tacked on and will be replaced when I have decided what with:
The plan is to use these as Squad leaders for drone units. One of the back stories about the Demiurg includes information that they provided Ion tech to the Tau so I will likely be trying to [I Swear Too Much] something that fits the bill. I have also decided that some form of control staff is in order.
As you can see, it's early days yet but at least it has started .
I have decided to make three Demiurg to start off with; a leader, a controller and a technician. That way I can get them [I Swear Too Much] and painted to go with some drones that I already have . I am still waiting for various bits and bobs to arrive but the Thunderers turned up today so here is where I am at with the first three:
From left to right we have a leader, technician and controller.
I have decided that I can use my Ghar suits as drones for these... which is really handy because I was looking for some troops to go with them so it kills two birds with one stone:
I also plan to have some shield drones for the Demiurg and some targeting/spotting drones as well.
I have been thinking about colours and I reckon it would be interesting to have each unit like a knight and his household with their own colours. That way, I won't have to paint the same colours all the time and also will look nice when painted up... but it's early days yet .
