Remember my WIP conversion? Well since I finished my Annihilation Barge I’ve been trying to complete Abaddon. I’m using my own tutorial and scheme which is slightly different to the eavy metal scheme for Black Legion. I didn’t want him to be the king of bling so I’m using aged looking metals for the legs. I also wanted his daemon weapon to be painted like how I painted the armour fused daemons on my chosen, painting the blade as bone was a genius idea. It now looks like the daemon weapon’s horn. I’m now struggling to finish this model. Read on to find out what’s hampering my progress.
I had my brand new motorbike stolen from my driveway last week. Pretty gutted about it. I made a couple of posters to help find her and spread the word, but tbh she’s been stripped and sold for spares almost certainly.
Hope you like the posters, they were a good distraction to keep me occupied. I think they’re pretty funny and that’s important. Whilst the bike was my pride and joy. No one died or was injured so these jokingly help me keep perspective.
Bike is Honda CB600FA Hornet (yellow) stolen from East London on March 27th 2013. Registration ET12 SKX.
Sorry to hear about your bike Garfy, that's pretty miserable!
Loving Abaddon though – especially that he doesn't look too sparkly. Definitely prefer the muted tones! While I hate to ask, if you get the chance, any hope of a tutorial for the paint job? Always found black armour to be a pain in the proverbial…
Here's the tutorial. Enjoy.
Oh balls, I'm an arse for missing that. Sorry!

Nice! I have been waiting for an update on this one since you released pic´s of the naked conversion.
I like your color scheme, really dark and brooding, the way I like W40k models… It gives the impression of Abbadon being just as evil and despoiling as legend has it.
Will be waiting to see the finished product!
Sorry about you bike as well! Never fun to hear about that sort of stuff…
