All Scars painting challenge – The Survivor Series 2016 – December

survivor seriesWell we’ve reached the end of another year of the All Scars Survivor Series Painting Challenge and as usual its a Showcase month.

With that in mind I wanted to do something a little special for my SAMCRO Black Legion, especially since we also received the new Traitor Legions supplement this month too.

So I decided to paint the head honcho of the Black Legion himself, Abaddon the Despoiler. However, I still feel the existing metal miniature is too small compared to the newer plastic models (terminators in particular), so I decided it was time to do a conversion I’d been planning for a while.

Combining the plastic Chaos Lord in Terminator Armour kit with parts from the finecast version of Abaddon would give him the size to be comparable. Plus having used him (albeit the old metal one) in a highly succesful speartip assault against Tau (see the Damnation Planetfall) I wanted to include some tau trophies on his base. Thankfully a fellow All Scar (Hi Graham!) let me loot some pieces from his bits and pieces.

The original plan was to paint the Tau parts in the same colour scheme as my opponents of the game, but most of them were unpainted, and the scheme one of them had begun was mainly black. As I didn’t want it the same as the main model (too much black can be a bad thing I guess) I went with the standard sandy beige colour instead.

As with the rest of my Black Legion most of the details on the armour for Abaddon are picked out in silver rather than gold, it’s just my preference.

So here he is….
