  • I’ve been pretty eager to get started on the Abaddon model but I’m not sure about how confident I feel about painting non Metallic metal armour trims so I decided to have a test run.  Actually I’ve spent way too much time on this model having painted the metal trims three times now and still I am not happy with the outcome but alas it’s nearly time to move on. 
I’m getting close to finishing this model to the standard I feel like it deserves for the purposes that I’m painting it yet I’m not sure if I’m happy with the metal trims.  It doesn’t convince me that it looks metal all that much st all.  I’ve been stewing over this challenge for a couple weeks now and I can’t quite figure out the solution so the only way through it is to power forward. 
I’ll make a few small adjustments to finish it, paint something else to have a rest from the brain bending challenge that is NMM and then move on to Abaddon. In all honesty though I must say that this Black Legion scheme in NMM is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever attempted to paint it just seems very difficult to get right.  I must admit to myself that while it’s not completely convincing metallic it still looks decent enough in its own right.  I’ve been sorely tempted to just give up the ghost and paint Abaddon using metallics but that would be giving up and I’m not one to do that sort of thing. 
Anyone who has tips for armour trim non metallics I’d love to hear them! 
Interim model between this and Abaddon - Skink Priest or a bust, what would you prefer to see?
