Plastic Abaddon Conversion

I converted this model when the plastic Chaos Terminator Lord came out. The old metal model although still a classic just does not fit in with the current plastic Terminators i mean a chaos lord's bodyguard should not be bigger and taller than him right.

The conversion is really simple to do here are the things you will need.
1:A Plastic Terminator Lord Box Set
2:An Abaddon the Despoiler model you will have to buy the hole model sense GW no longer sells bits:threaten:.

The only bits you will need is the Top Knot,The Talons of Horus,and the Daemon Sword Drach'nyen.

Do this after you glue the head to the body so you can get it in the right spot. Now carefully cut off the Top Knot from Abaddon's head then find a drill bit that is alittle bigger than it is and drill a shallow hole in the top of the bald plastic head then pin the Top Knot to the head.

Next use the Sorcerer's staff arm cut it off at the elbow then test fit it so it will be where you want it. then pin Drach'nyen into place. Next you will have to cut the elbow off of The Talons of Horus then cut off the Combi-Bolter arm at the elbow and pin it into place. After that your done.

One thing you might want to do before you attach the head to the body is glue on the Trophy Racks so that the head can fit on better.

Have Fun " I know i did"

Also my friend MBG Rob Bear from FTW Games took the pictures of my model at Games Day this year and kindly posted them on his web site.

First and foremost.. TASTY CONVERSION ! Being an avid converter myself I applaud you and your wonderful addition to our beloved hobby. I am tempted to take your idea and make it my own, with my own FFX twist to it. I've been looking for an idea for a Khorne Lord in Terminator armor and you sir have given me a solid base to work from. I have the Zhufor mini but he's not quite what I'm looking for. I'm inclined to build a menacing chain axe in the hand that holds the Demon Sword and keep the Talon of Horus. I am a firm believer that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. I'll post up my version of your conversion once I get around to it.

Lastly, +rep mate.


edit: Dammit, now I'm going to have to buy ANOTHER Chaos Lord mini.. This'll be the 3rd or 4th one.
Well speeking of Khorn Lords i converted one from the Terminator Lord model cutting the hammer parts off of a plastic Thunder Hammer to make a double headed chain ax type Daemon Weapon. Then i cut the axe parts off of 2 Khorn Chain Axes from the Berzerker sprue. I then filed down the back ends of the ax heads so that they were flat enuff to glue onto the Thunder Hammer shaft. After that was done i glued the arm into place. I then took the Buzz Saw arm from the Ork Nobs sprue and glued it on just to make him look like the sick nasty killing basterd that he is.
Sounds rather labor intensive, which is fine. However I'm leaning towards using the rather large chainaxe heads off of the new Ork Nobs. They're great for Khorne Conversions, and plastic so I love them. I used them on my Beastzerker Champions.

Hey guys post up your conversions inspired by this model and lets see what everyone came up with.
Ask and you shall receive.
