It appears from what i garner that the challenge has no set of miniature noumbers so we set our own limits.
Eagerly awaiting to see the progress brother!

i was going for the stoic nature of the character in the sense he is the quiet one that you have got to watch out for, contemplating the scene at hand then going in for the decisive blow when necessary while looking at the bigger picture and controlling the whole battlefield as taught by the lion himself

Sorry, misunderstanding. I wasn't commenting on the pose, that is cool I like the sword down look too. I was just joking about the current undercoated look B)

Looks good Neo! You used bone to great effect! Keep going at this pace and you'll be done waaaaaay ahead of time! ;)

So Abdiel is he the Master of which Company?

@semper
he is going to be the master of the 4th company, recently promoted from the position of banner bearer within the deathwing and former member of deathwatch killteam repentance, comprising of dark angels and successor chapter members by 'persuasion' towards the inquisition of supreme grandmaster azrael himself

He's got quite a story! Are you by any chance playing Deathwatch the rpg? Now the metal colored arm makes 100% sense! Well done mate!

not playing at the moment because i barely got enough time for painting let alone gaming (50+ hours per week with a wife that works nights as well is a killer) but i did get my rota and found out i've got a three day weekend this week so between family visits, cleaning the car and spending some quality time with the wife i should hopefully get a bit more done on abdiel and expand on the background story a bit (with any luck)

You need his name on the banner, and i think the cloak and reds could use some further highlights/shadowing to really make them pop. The rubble may also benefit from some washes/drybrushing.

Overall though he came out really well and already looks set to conquer on the tabletop. Good Job on this one Neo.

So is it "vow complete"? Cool! Excellent! It looks ace too! I like the work you put on the shoulder pads and the back banner is very well made! I especially like the detail with the 4th Comp. sign -nice touch!

Congrats mate!

still plenty of time to perfect so not vow complete yet. noticed i've gotta tidy up the banner a little and add a little more depth to the base some how(not sure how yet though) and i'm going to make the robe a little more fancy rather than just bleached bone

A very nice conversion. I wasn't sure about the pose at first but now he's painted I think it works very well. I love what you've done with the small scroll and servo skull behind the banner. Where did you get the plastic combi-plasma?

combi-plasma was in the commander box. i wasn't too sure about the pose either but i had a few ideas of how to play the light a little to make it look like he was taking in the battlescene (i love the smell of napalm in the morning kind of thing) may actually create a green stuff cigar thinking about it
