Rightly named, the Abaddon (hebrew; Destroyer) is a force to be reckoned with alone, unising its anti-grav ability to its fullest extent with more turret mounts on the underside. Because of this versitility, the Abaddon has been used in clearing buildings with excessive amounts of heavy fire and partially replacing aircraft (even though it's not fully capable of true flight). Even demonic forces have reeled from its presence in demonslayer units because of the firepower and invulnerability.

I may want to note that at the moment on this Abaddon, the weapons were removed from every turret (with the exception of the SAM launcher).

Yeah a bit light. A technical drawing should at least be in a heavy pencil. At best inked. Is this 1st or 3rd angle? (One for the geeks that LOL) And a nice scale wouldn't go amis.

61 John L Morgan replies: "Yeah, I believe you're right... but sometimes the aide is already there - there was a hatch that I measured off of to get its size (which was a good 24.5 metres in length, 17.6 metres at its widest point, and 12.7 metres from the lowest point on the bottom turrets to the top of the SAM launcher when the turrets are level and the SAM is the way it is shown here). I'll see to darken the image more, with the hope that my old sketchbook that it's in doesn't fall apart on me right then and there!"

Well, I guess my biggest nitpick is the drawings are hard to see? Other than that, this looks like a nice design.

:-) John L Morgan replies: "Thanks for the advice! I'll put it to good use!"

Great name. I wouldn’t want to mess with it! Maybe when you make it darker you could add some shading. Neat design! Good job.

:-) John L Morgan replies: "I’ll get it inked when I get the chance, so I’ll accept the patience and the compliment very well!"
