(I don’t know any Abaddon quotes… This is kinda embarrassing)
To be perfectly honest I only painted this model because Charles had an extra one he wasn’t using. I have moderate interest in making a Black Crusade list, where I have each chaos leader, but that is not a high priority for me right now.
This model was fun to paint though. I made sure to dry brush some grey over the black before anything else to give his armor a bit more depth. Then I painted the gold and other details. The sword was the most fun part for me; I really enjoy dry brushing. Its base coated dark purple, with about 3 or 4 layers of different shades of blue layered on top.
