    Tzen's Abaddon thread

    Next project on the painting table is Abaddon. Not only is this guy an iconic figure in the 40k lore, but his new model is very very sweet. I couldn’t resist!

    Are you using the GW method for painting black as shown on the How to Paint: Abaddon vid, or is it your own version? Either way, he's looking great

    Re: Tzen's Abaddon thread

    Thanks chaps! Glad you like!

    And I have loads of threads, I think at this point I just live and breath the GW hobby. >.<

    And Deathcat, I am not sure what colours they are using for their black in the video, but mine are Dark reaper, Thunderhawk blue, and then Fenrisian grey. I will do some final tiny highlights with blue horror when everything else is done. No idea if that's the same though. Be cool if it was though.

    Abaddon is still slowly getting finished. I get such amazing “Horus” vibes from this miniature. It’s brilliant.

    Slowly but surely finishing off the Warmaster. I need to add some battle damage and some other bits and pieces, but I am waiting for him to be pretty much done before adding things like that.

    Slowly getting there now with Abaddon. The sword will take me a good while, and I need to do quite a bit more with the base. But he is coming together!

    Thanks guys!

    I just have the sword to do and he is finished.

    Granted the sword may take me a while!

    Re: Tzen's Abaddon thread

    Abaddon is complete. I may still go back to him and fix his belt and add some more battle damage, but I am pretty happy with how he has turned out!



















    I also did a cheesy video to go with him (I got some new video toys recently! )
