Several armies for both Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 include Daemons (demons) of various size. While Games Workshop produces official figures, demon figures are also commonly available from other manufacturers.

For example, someone on eBay today is selling "Plaguebearers of Nurgle" (the name of official GW figures), but the small print identifies the models as from Reaper Miniatures.

What percentage of the Daemons in your Warhammer and 40K armies are official Games Workshop figures?

All of them… I have very few. In my Chaos-themed =][= list, I use Daemonettes as my Death Cult Assassins…

Space Monkey11 Mar 2012 2:45 p.m. PST

Most of them.
The unit that I've got a lot of proxies for is the Host of summoned Chaos creatures like hydras, harpies, chimerae.

I have a whole tzeentch army that is nothing but GW daemons but my slaanesh daemons have some odd other things as do my khorne forces. Overall they are mostly (90%) GW though.

Hard to tell what will happen in the future. With the plastic one a higher percentage of the small daemons have will be GW but if they persist with the fine cast then probably a lower percentage of the odd ones.

I only slay daemons.

All my Khorne daemons are GW old school metals (about 33 figures). But my Demon prince is a Confrontation model.


Jovian111 Mar 2012 6:09 p.m. PST

None. My daemons are Confrontation, or other manufacturers, and any of the GW models I had, I've since sold. I wished I had purchased the sculpts of the Daemonettes which were "pretty" in the face, as the new ones are not my cuppa tea.

I've been disappointed with the whole 40K Daemon/Chaos thing anyway. First and foremost – they are supposed to be "Chaos" which means that they don't have some set number of forms they can assume – they are by their very definition "chaos" or unreality made real and able to assume any form they deem appropriate. Thus my frustration with them. If they are "minions of a god" then fine, but if they are truely Chaos made real – they should be more like the C'Tan – capable of any form they so choose – and not limited to a set number of forms. Sorry for the brief rant.

About 70%.

Technically only one army in Fantasy uses Daemons anymore. I guess if you call the Daemon Prince a full Daemon, the Warriors of Chaos have access to one. I don't considder it one, so it's two armies in Fantasy if you are of that opinion.

As my Daemon army is only in it's infancy and I only have the models I really like from the range, only 90%. One box of the new Daemonettes, the Daemonette Cav models, a greater Daemon of Tzeentch, a Changeling, and a Daemon Prince.

I have all the Chronopia Devout Demons and I plan to use some of them. The Devout Soulflayer model is just too cool not to use.

I have one or maybe two demon figures from GW.
However, If I was going to play either game and use demons, I would use 0% GW figures. There are too many better figures out there to bother with GW's

Way back when I was playing the second edition of Warhammer Fantasy I used whatever demon figures I could find as at that time the game world was not as defined. However, I liked the background of the Lost and the Damned and Slaves to Darkness books and began to avidly collect the forces I was interested in which was primarily Khorne and Tzeentch. Later I began to build a Nurgle force.

Fast forward I have since sold off many of the original metals and different versions of the demons. Although I still have a large force of metal muscle builder looking Bloodletters of Khorne which I liked a lot. I have a nicely painted up second generation Bloodthirster in metal and one of the original metal Nurgle Great Unclean Ones. The later every now and them gets played as a demon prince in 40K. I still have a number of the second generation demonettes (body builder female demons with really HUGE claws!) of Slaneesh along with the same generation mounted models. I have purchased the newer plastic Bloodletters and have actually based them for 40K on the round bases instead of square as most of my demons are mounted for Warhammer Fantasy. I have thought about getting the new plastic horrors as the previous metal ones where just a pain to assemble.

So I would say the majority of my demon figures are GW. I just like the figures. I have looked at the alternatives that now available and have been tempted. I play 40K more often now than Warhammer Fantasy and my main 40K force is Black Legion Chaos Space Marines. So there is not as significant an investment if I wanted to expand. I wish that with redoing most of the demon forces in plastic that GW would have followed suit with the Nurgle forces. Not sure why that was not done. As it seems to me Nurgle is as popular as some of the other flavors of Chaos in the Warhammer/40K world.

Somewhere between 0 and none.
I really dislike GW deamons, so I went with Hersey daemons…
