Grave Guard as Generic Lesser Daemons

This has been a concept that I've wanted to explore for a while - so here it is. A Grave Guard from the Vampire Counts range of Warhammer Fantasy Battle to be used as a generic lesser daemon in a Chaos Space Marine force.

All that's really been done is to mount the miniature on a circular base. However, in doing so, I was a little surprised to find out that grave guard come on a 20mm fantasy base which means that they're smaller than I originally thought they might be. Not withstanding that fact, I think the slightly larger circular base has worked out reasonably well. Moreover, its slightly larger size is disguised by the use of basing materials - mounting the miniature slightly higher and adding rubble and green grass around the edges.

The painting was reasonably straight forward, featuring a blue colour scheme for the main parts of the model and rusted edging with flecks of gold and silver. I reckon they'll look very good when some necromantic chaos renegades summon them forth from the Warp. I'll have to construct and paint the rest of the squad now.

The Grave Guard looks good, it seems perfect for the base, nicely done.
