Keeper of Secrets - Greater Daemon of Slaanesh

I did say in the previous post the next one was going tone big and it was a secret... a Keeper of Secrets!!

This is a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh from Games Workshop

Why on Earth am I painting a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh? Well that's a bit of a secret too... it TOTALLY HAS NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH THE WRATH & GLORY GAMES CAMPAIGN I'M RUNNING! (Shhhhh.... Nothing to see here, carry on!)

My Heretic Astartes Kill Team are pretty obvious Slaanesh disciples and if I were ever to expand that into a 40K Detachment - they're end up being Emperor's Children or something similar. Actually if I were to ever do a 40K Chaos force, I'd probably be more interested in a Daemon Host - with maybe a few Chaos Space Marines and Cultists... I've got the Greater Daemon now!

I did a bit of converting on this beastie... this is a close up of said conversions. The original model came with a loin cloth. I always wondered why a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh - the Chaos God of Excesses - would bother with a loin cloth...?

To give you a sense of how big this beastie is, here is a Daemonette of Slaanesh that I painted over the last week as well... The Daemonette is a normal 28mm figure. Maybe I should have taken a picture of it with a tank....

Close-up of Daemonette.

Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:

The Wrath & Glory campaign I'm going to be running on alternating Saturday evenings starts tonight... perhaps I'll have a report of how that went down?

Otherwise, it will be more minis being painted up for the Wrath & Glory Weekend campaign next weekend (which will also be used in the Saturday evening campaign, later on...)


  1. that is... er... quite the modification to that Keeper of Secrets. Guess this fellow is not into that part of the gig. ;)

    1. Cheers!

      Oh, I'm sure s/he is into... y'know... stuff... but considering it's Slaanesh, it's probably some pretty extreme-hardcore-BDSM-kind-of-stuff...

      It seemed weird to me that a Greater Daemon of Slaanesh would wear a loin cloth... I mean really, what are they trying to hide under there? Trying to keep it a mystery? A secret? Hmmmm... I guess it IS the Keeper of Secrets... Ah well, the proverbial cat is out of the bag now!

  2. Great looking Daemon! Nice bit of converting too!
