    Daemon Prince Restrictions

    Are there restrictions for what daemon princes must look like?

    For example could I just have a Chaos marine sized body with wings, big claws etc. on a bigger base than usual, or would that just count as a possessed?

    Any tips on modelling Daemon Princes without buying the actual model. (Don't particularly like metal.)

    Well in the previous dex it had to be modeled as a massive thing, to be honest fluffwise it needs to be atleast the size of a terminator, as a minimum.

    if you dont want the meatal miniture then try makeing your own with plastic thingd, an Ogre may be a good starting point for a nurgle type deamon or maby even the plastic troll from skull pass.

    either way, you have a LOT of work ahed.

    Okay, as long as you model him WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get), it should be all good. I don't know if the rules have changed for Deamon Princes in the new Codex, but as per the old rules, Deamonic Stature (Monsterous Creature ability) was somthing that you could upgrade your Prince with, but didn't have to...

    If he doesn't have to be a Monsterous Creature, then you can model him in something smaller. If he has to be Monsterous Creature, you're going to have to model him with either the metal bits, or come up with something else.

    Ogre Kingdom might be a good start, or alternativly a WHFB Giant model. You could possibly convert one of the new Chaos Spawn models. I can't really think of any other humanoid plastics that would give you the size that you need. If any of those don't fir your needs, the only other alternative to metals would be to sculpt your own. That might take some doing...

    Metals aren't THAT bad to work with, they just take a bit more patience, a pin-vise, and a dremmel. It can be worth the time and effort to come out with something that you like in the end.

    Hope that helped anwsering your questions!
