  5. This is the best cover ever and if its not yet complete my only suggestion would be to give him angry eyes.

  10. Abaddon is a ginger? You’re learning something new every day…

    • As far as I know Abaddon’s top knot has always been red (at least on the Mini’s).

      • I think that is hairesy.

  11. I like it.
    Your style is reminiscent of 1890′s post-impressionism.

  14. This can’t be a factual representation of the Warmamster since his arms are intact and properly attached to his torso.

    • Meant to say “Despoiler”, not WM. Two days without sleep is not good kids.

      • He is the Warmaster though, ain’t he. The Legion bestows that rank on him when he unites them.

  21. That is the best damn power-armoured stick figure I’ve seen in my life. Glorious. You should write a children’s book about Abaddon and co, and fill it with these glorious drawings.
