How to: Paint a Dark Disciple

With the release of Games Workshop’s new Chaos Space Marines came a new Dark Apostle miniature.

Drach’nyen – Abaddon the Despoiler’s Demon Sword

About four or five years ago, I was collecting a small force of Red Corsairs because I really liked the fluff, and Huron Blackheart was a complete fiend.
