In an effort to amalgamate and save my existing project logs, this new thread will bring all my Distractions together with new, slightly safer images that aren't being hosted by a moronic company! Yay!

To save space and make things easier on your eyes, I'm going to start with a simple catalogue of my previous Distractions, linking to each project on my Tumblr blog.

Once this catalogue is complete, I'll once again start posting here with new Distraction projects!

Here's a new addition, a gang of Redemptionists!

They've been built for Necromunda (though may have to jig around when the new rules come out) but designed to also work as an Inquisitor and band of Acolytes.
The Fanatics, the lower two images, will be a unit of Flagellants.

Love the Redemptonists Squidmaster Smile the colours scheme in particular works really nicely. The orangey highlights to their red robes sort of echo the fiery flames Redemptionists are all about Smile

A new project - Abaddon The Despoiler!

Much like Doomrider, this is a project for an army I don;t have. A build for pure enjoyment, which will likely find its way swiftly to eBay once finished.

The plan is to make a decent looking Abaddon, considering the age clearly showing on the official model.
I'll be using a Grey Knight for body and legs, which of course I'll be adapting a tad to Chaos it up. I'll likely smooth down the swriting on the armour, and add that lovely spike design Chaos seems to have.
The Talon and sword I may have to scratch-build, but I think I'll come to that when it happens.
Head I haven't settled on yet.

Here's an odd coincidence - the above image kicking off the new Abaddon project was the 666th image I uploaded to my Imgur account. Neat.

Anyway, I made swift progress having recieved the parts today.



So already I think the body looks much better than the somewhat bland pose of the GW model.
Obvious differences are that I've swapped the two arms around (because thats where the Grey Knights keep their bolter ports, and reduced the size of the claw a bit. I had to make a custom claw, and decided to make it a nice and simple affair rather than a massive overpowering fist of a thing.
I found an actual Drach'nyen in my bits box whilst hunting for a sword, but it was a bit beat up so it needed a new handle and hilt as well.

I haven't added the head just yet, though I have found an appropriate one. Just working the details through on his top-knot before I commit to it.

And theres a fair bit of green stuffing still to do to spike up the armour and add the trim common to Chaos suits. Theres a small start on the spiked collar, but I need to expand that to the whol suit.
I also plan to add chains and cloth hanging from the belt as Abaddon's official model has as well.

Abaddon gets his head:



Some green stuff work done here, and I've started on the top-knot.
