I do seem to be changing projects fairly regularly at the moment... I'm now working on the Forge World version of Abaddon from the Horus Heresy series, which really is a joy to paint. While I initially decided to paint Loken first, I'm still not happy with the sea green armour so I've decided to leave it for a small while and work on Abaddon instead.
Here it is, the final box! As one of my most well known models, it seemed wrong to finish it off without making some box artwork of Fulgrim as well. Unfortunately, the other program which I downloaded isn't as easy to use as Photoshop, so it might be a while before I can make any more boxes. Which probably doesn't matter because it will be quite a while before I have any new models to put on them!
Here are some pictures of Loken, my favourite of the two models and the main character of the first 3 book in the series. He's definitely my favourite Forge World model in a long time, there's so much detail on the model. One of my favourites is the little X on his shoulder pad marking him out as the captain of the 10th company. Meanwhile, I've made some progress painting the display base, which I'll show you as soon as I can get a photo.
Well, I've been working on the diorama recently and it's great fun to build. I've finished building both of the models, so I'm showing Abbadon in this post and Loken in the next. Loken is going to be painted in several stages (notably, the cloak will be separate until I've finished the armour), so I've blue tacked the other pieces on for this photo.
So, we went to the School's League, and we didn't get through. But I did win best painted army and my models might be on the Games Workshop website at some point, so it was easily worth it. I'll post some pictures of the finished Strike Squad on here at some point soon, but until then I've got a few photos of my next project to show you.
The School's League is now quickly approaching, which means my deadline for the Strike Squad is as well. I've made a bit of progress on the squad, I've now finished the stone areas, storm bolters, and I've written their names on their shoulder pads. This means that I've now only got the turquoise areas, blades, bases and the Justicar's face left to paint. Hopefully I'll be able to show you another picture of them soon.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
