Demon Prince of Tzeentch - simple web search results (1)

Hello, a very simple post , trying to come back to blogging activity :-)
Demon Prince of Tzeentch (DePoT)  .... and quick web search to collect many different attempts to this topic.

 I believe the models may be used as Magnus the Red, if you are not convinced by new plastic model. Thus, the post is picture heavy but I like to summarize the obvious ideas, before looking for something really new...

Many conversions are build around current or old versions of generic DP model. Usually adding a birdy-like head and legs/hands is an easiest way to get good results.

Typical starting point...


...but variations are endless...


 
 

  

  

Good painting never hurts...



  


A birdy head is not necessarily a must ...


 Second broad type of DePoT is based on Egyptian walking sphinx taken from Warhammer Khemri range. This body ...


  ... and legs consist the base of simple kitbashing:



 This nice miniature sporting a birdy head and sphinx body/legs is a joint between both types...


Another attempt is trying to reduce nr of legs of out DePoT and make him bipedal..



There are nice conversion parts (sometimes) available for this task..



 Examples below ar not necessarily intended as DePoT models (they are actual Khemri/Tomb Kings) but they show the potential of this particular way...



 
 Of course, one can live without the commercial resins...


Another mixture of plastic DP, khemri and HE fenix wings:



But always you have to keep your eyes on the correct proportions ;-)

 Enough for today, next I will look to models build around different Greater Daemons of Tzeentch, as they are similar in size to new Magnus plastic...

Another side of hobby life....

This is a link to my other hobby, which is photography:




It got recently substantial boost due to new DSLR camera. I hope that it will allow me to make some better photos of those tiny figurines...

And our alternatives are...

      Upon looking at the assembled miniatures of Khornates and Sigmarines, I believe that the Age of Sigmar starter box has a great value, and the rules are free. However, the latter are seriously flawed for longbeard veteran players, by not having point values, nor army organization chart. Some groups made attempts to invent their own house-rules, but they always will be tainted by local impact and lack of broader acceptance. Another option is using well-comped rules of Warhammer 8th edition, but the "well-comped" term is quite crucial and goes into the same category as above mentioned modifications of Age of Sigmar.
      So, maybe it is the time to drop Warhammer rules altogether and try something different for our precious 28-mm fantasy miniatures. Below are just few propositions, I'm sure many more can be found ... the point is to encourage you for searching a system fitting your taste.

Age of Sigmar, or Let's make it usable...

Sad days... after pretty long history of entertaining us (1983-2015), Warhammer Fantasy Battle is dead, or at least stored under Oldhammer label... We have a new product, which is quite far from being perfect. No points system and lack of any army organization chart make it difficult to use outside of a close friends circle, not even starting to talk tournament play... Simple counting wounds doesn't work, either...
Below, are 2 links to some preliminary (and unofficial, of course) ways of fixing the mentioned problems.  I found them interesting!
