While I use my blog for detailed posts, I'd like to do a little summary of figs I've painted, and battles I've played here:

I guess I'll be doing this a bit backwards, but here is Abaddon:

Amazing work on the cape (brings up thoughts of the Eye of Terror cover)

I also really like the detailing on the claws :tu:

Thanks very much guys.

Here's some more completed shots from a 6 round ITC event I attended with the army. That 6th game is just grueling.

The Army on display.

 

And a super fun squad to play/paint:

A post of a little image dump from day one of an ITC tournament: LINK

And for anyone interested in my 'fun list' attempt at an ITC tournament, I've just finished the Day 1 report: HERE

 

img_72331.jpg?w=860

 

Thanks for checking out the progress!

 

Definitely need to tweak the list if I want it to be competitive. I'm not surprised though, and have no regrets as it was a fun army to play.

A small correction:

 

 

If you don’t know the hot thing to do with Daemonengines is to play them with the Flawless Host because of exploding 6’s in close combat and the Disco Lord makes that +1 within 6″.

 

Regular Daemon engines gain nothing by being Flawless Host since, as you hopefully know, they don't get Legion traits. It's really just the Disco Lord who benefits (a LOT) from being Flawless Host and only since the Errata.

That is understood. Thanks anyway. I wasn’t using it.... one of my opponents was.

"This is not the first time you've been left to fate. I can see it in your manner. It takes something from you doesn't it? Being deserted hollows you out and leaves a void inside. People might say that it hurts, that the psyche aches from the wound. It's not true though. Abandonment does not leave pain. You wished it did because that would be better than the truth. It leaves nothing. Not hope, not pain, not forgiveness."

Wow! Thanks for the batrep. Your blog is wonderful in both rich photos and pithy commentary.

I echo Chaz, would it be possible for you to provide us with the recipe for your galaxy/nebula cloak?

http://prot40k.blog/...s-at-itc-day-1/Love your work! Do you have any guides for Abaddon's nebula/galaxy cloak?

 

I'm getting several requests for how to do that sort of starfield. You do need an airbrush, but it's somewhat layered, and I have a way of adding depth to it that I'd really like to do a video on. The technique started back when I did Eldar (no airbrush) and did starfields on the heads of Wrathlords. Now it's evolved into this and I think it best suits a video for the complexity. I have to figure out if my phone can handle it.

 

Another awesome looking army prot! Love those havocs. The wound counter where did you get that?

 

I'm trying to remember. They aren't cheap, and they're magnetized. I'll look for the transaction bills... and I have a review I'm writing up for them.

Thanks so much for reading it.

 

I have put up Day 1 of the ITC  6 game tournament I attended. I did not fair that well, but had fun. I took basically what I had painted for my newer Black Legion. Match ups were super hard though. I never seemed to get an 'easy' game.

With my somewhat disappointed feeling with the Thousand Sons I needed to finish this guy. What a great sculpt they did.:

Outstanding work as usual Prot! Did you use wetblending on the cloak? It almost gives off a tie-dye look. :D

The cloak and backpack colours are trippy I like it. You should do some gun casings in those colours/style as like a homage to the weapon skins memes in FPS's/ shooters.

Sorry for a repeat post, but just want to plop this here since I keep forgetting to reference my Black Legion batreps here:

I'm on the run, but I posted a quick battle report with lots of pics here:

While not Black Legion persay, my Knights play with my Black Legion usually and I consider them an extension of the Black Legion. (However I've had much more competitive games with the Knights and Flawless Host (Disco Lords))

 

I am currently trying to find ways to get my Black Legion to competitive play. So I thought I would finish my Preceptor/Desecrator Knight which usually runs with the Autocannon Wardogs.
