After finishing up my 2nd Ed miniatures I've moved on to the modern ones but to give myself a bit of a change I'm painting them on an alternate Black Legion Scheme, a touch more "Grimdark" than what I have been painting.
More words from me over on my blog: https://cruciumgiger.blogspot.com/2021/12/warhammer-40k-modern-black-legion-chaos.html

Nice paintwork, black's not an easy colour to do but you've made a good job of it.

I think they look great. I was never a fan of all the gold trim and red accessories. These look much darker and grimmer which is exactly what chaos marines should be imo

Looking good, not too shiny and new.

I, too, prefer space marines to look like they've actually been out fighting rather than in the barracks polishing their armour.

Nice, subdued colour scheme, I agree it's better than all the gold.  8)

Looking great, although I wouldn't have minded if you had used that dull brass/gold effect seen on the icon bearer, either. That one's quite effective, too.

I'm actually going to use that colour on the characters' shoulder pad trims to denote them as someone special and then Abaddon will receive a full gold trim as he's the boss.

Good call, looking forward to that!

Thanks, after a bit of a break over the festive period I finally cracked on and finished two squads of Terminators.

Lots more images over on my blog as usual:

I've been back working on the Black Legion after a break and it was time to get some paint on my Hounds of Abaddon conversions.
More waffle and pictures over on my blog:
