"You'll not see nothing like the mighty Djin"

While I hadn't planned a God in the VSF Turkish army, my reading on Turkish myth and legend (always a good place to start) had left me with the idea for a daemon a Djin.

When an advertisement for the Reaper Bones 'Shadow Daemon' popped up on Facebook I immediately thought.. a Djin, of course. The figure arrived pretty promptly from Mighty Ape, but had to wait a week or so for painting. All through the painting the words of Manfred Mann kept running through my head.

Anyway, here is the completed Djin. I chose to paint it in a daemonic style I learned from GW White Dwarf magazines, all putrifying flesh with purple and blue shadows.





The presence of a God makes for yet another difference from what I hope will be a common opponent, the British VSF army. So the army now stands at 50 points. 22 points to go. Onwards and upwards.

As yet 'unblooded' on the table top

I've been ill in bed for a week (first sick days off work in 25 years!!) so there's been no painting output, and obviously no games...
