I dunno, a dead primaris LT and head trophy set a pretty narrow window. He's the warmaster, so I expect his armor' s been repaired in the millennia since sigismund and centuries since cadia.

You're talking about a base which is optional.
Is the base optional? It looks like his feet are at two different levels. Probably wouldnt need a whole deal of converting either way but would be one less hassle. There’s a dead Terminator in one of the Tyranid kits that would suit. The Primaris helmet on the trophy rack will need a bit more work but SHOULD be doable.
The primaris helmet is very close to MK IV so you could leave it as is for heresy use.

Something that does bug me now I see it is that he's staring at his empty palm. I was thinking of putting a decapitated helmet there for his Hamlet impression. Or the tennis serve, that also works...
Guilliman head. Or calgar. ;)
Yeah I will be getting this for sure. Any chance for new cultists in this release?

I've just been to my local GW and they believe that Abaddon will be up for pre order alongside Vigilus pt2 on Saturday the 16th.

Guys. I am so hyped

Me too and I don't even play the game. Abaddon was one of my first 'OH. MY. GAWD." miniatures and this new one make the same.
Great Scot what an amazing miniature.

Maybe...

Why does Abaddon look fat?


Because they 3D scanned WarhammerTV Dan as a suitable base model to sculpt Abaddon's new enlarged form

Just kidding Dan we love you really

You could put his own head in there. Fabulous Bill's Horus clone. Less trolly too.

Sharing an idea is trolling now? Now then, let's not make such hasty assumptions. After all Abbadon wants to destroy the Imperium. Calgar is his next opponent, and Guillimans the Imperial Regent. They are both the best candidates at the moment for such a great pose.

This is getting a bit...non-Abbaddon-y.

 

For cool concepts of CSM armies, you can go down in the Chaos subforum, we have plenty of room for such discussions down there. This is about the Abbaddon model that has just been revealed...

Incoming diorama msn-wink.gif

Spoiler

 

Lol'd at this.

 

Looking at it though, Abby's proportions are certainly more Astartes than Primarch. On one hand, this pleases me; Abbadon the Despoiler doesn't need a Primarch's stature to be an absolute badass. On the other hand, it foils my plan to convert the model to represent Horus facing off against the Emperor model I converted from Guilliman's kit.

 

Meh, there's too much WIN with Abby's new model for this to put me off. Not keen on the Bane head option, but I may magnetize the other two heads and switch them out depending on my mood.

 



Something that does bug me now I see it is that he's staring at his empty palm.

 

He's doing that on the front cover of Talon of Horus too. Makes me wonder what's scribbled on the palm plate of the Talon...

For those of the 'looking into empty hand' path.

You could model up a holographic of *insert X plot planet here* hovering in his palm and he is looking at that? Kind of like the old picture of him holding the planet..although he was crushing that some how..but you get the jist.

I wish his face was way more twisted angry like the big Forgeworld statue or the art above. I might model might with his hair down or no topknot on one of the alternative heads.

Isn't his top knot just angled back into the open gap below the arch at the top of his Terminator armor there?

I think I may do red OSL over his fave so he looks like Horus in that pic where these facing off against big E.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

I also hope that Roboute, or any other Primarch, will not show up in the Vigilius Campaign. Lesser mortals should get their day in the spotlight.

"The Nova Terra Interregnum has been remembered unfairly by those few who remember it at all. True, many malcontents, provocateurs and petty lordlings flocked to its banner when it seceded. But its attempts to contain the aggressive expansion of the Ecclesiarchy were born from an honest desire to uphold those values at the hart of the Great Crusade. It is ironic that the last gasp of the Emperor's true vision was finally throttled at the hands of those who fought in His divine name, on the planet that once reminded our Lord of 'Urf, long ago...'"

Think it will be a Calgar, Abbadon showdown.
Vigilus might be the New Cadia if it does not fall. If it falls well colour me surprised and I don't know what to expect after.

I love how the range of reactions here mirror the in-universe view of Abaddon. Some folks are saying he is primarch sized and can stand in for Horus, others are saying he's clearly an ordinary Astartes in a unique suit of Terminator armor, others are plotting how to add him to their specific Chaos warband... I think these different reactions demonstrate just how good this character model is.
