Double Trouble, Boils and Buboes

Baulking at the cost of developing Abominations, the Overlord of Hell Pit has whipped the Master Moulders until they refined their processes and honed their efficiency at churning out these devastating mish-mashes of spare parts and spikey bits. 

 
 

The main advantage of a shit camera is that the models look surprisingly good in the flesh.  Er, plastic.

  1. Nasty, how many Abomination sets did you need as the basis? (I'm guessing two?)

    And could you ever really field four Hell Pit Abominations in a single army?

  2. Four photos, two models, Stylus. ;-)

    But the principle is sound: 2 abominations from one kit. And at 250pts max, yes, I can quite happily fit both in a 2k list.

    The low-slung one has since had two additional forelimbs and over-sized ratty incisors added.

  3. I'll attribute my mistake to trick photography...

    Given that we may well see an Abomination debut in Woofboot VII, and having read the screaming fits on the Warhammer forums, will one be invincible in a 1000pt tourney?

    Or is it like the Thundertusk? (something that seemed unplayable, but didn't really unbalance the game)

    1. You're right, we'll see one in WoffBoot VII but not controlled by me. Our guest General has opted for Skaven and he requested the Abomination be promoted to the top of my to do list!

    2. Oh crumbs. Once the Abomination hits the table, I sense we'll be looking back wistfully at the happy days of the SkavenSlave mega-horde.

      Can we hide your paintbrushes until May?

    3. May, huh? What dates again? Unlikely I'd make it, but still worth putting in my optimist's diary...

    4. 27 April, to be precise (more precise that saying entirely the wrong month).

  4. Love them! How much is from the kit, and how much is bits box? There's so much redundancy in a GW kit these days, I wouldn't be surprised if it's 80% kit, that's my guess.

    1. There was actually a disappointing level of redundancy in this kit. But I had my trusty clippers and saw to hand! Only 4 components per conversion were not from the kit.
