Having tonight hit the Abomination with a dull coat he is in the finished pile. I don't think its my best paint job ever, but I knew it wouldn't be going into it. I've never been very good at painting up a large area of skin. Wings, large patches of open area. They just aren't in my skill set.
I don't think he came out terrible, but I think that a more competent painter could've done a lot more with him.
As far as changes to this model go though. I removed the little piece of stonework that his hand would be holding, I didn't like it. I also hated the engine and wheel thing that goes in his butt so I left those out and made a big belt to wrap around him out of green stuff that would hold that piece of armor on his back. There is a large divot on that armor for the engine which I had to fill in and I stuck a big Skaven banner top on which isn't visible in the picture, but that's it really. I left off all the mechanical stuff because I really didn't any of it. So, that said though next month I literally only have to paint a Plague Furnace and my 2,500 points will be complete!
|What an Abomination!|
