I've had a hard time deciding on a legion (because let's face it, most people are buying the box for an army, not Ultramarines VS Word Bearers (even though the stand-alone game is really fun!)), but in the end it was pointed out to me by a friend that there aren't many ocean-green armies out there, and I do have Abaddon lying around, so Sons of Horus it is!!

What I've heard several times is "Base and Face", the 2 most important parts of a figure to make it stand out. And in a recent White Dwarf, a pro-painter mentioned that you should even start with these features while you have the inspiration! So here we have him, Captain Ezekyle Abaddon of the Justaerin, ready to have his face and base painted!
