Abaddon and Loken

I’ve recently finished painting Abaddon and Loken from the Forgeworld Horus Heresy character series. I really love these models (okay I admit it, I love all the Forgeworld Horus Heresy stuff) and they were really fun to paint. I’m not a huge fan of the large base that this diorama uses. I painted a few bits in different colours, such as copper pipes, sandstone building just so it wouldn’t look so dull.

My Loken has black hair as I hate the fact FW painted him blonde

The cape is the part of this model I am most proud of. It was painted using wet blending techniques
