    Legio Alpha! Alpha Legion Marine

    Ave LO'ers.

    Having been playing Chaos for far too long now, and deciding (read: beign roped into) going into a GT, it's time to get started on painting my army.

    And I've chosen the Alpha Legion over the Black Legion, as after painting one army black, highlighting it gets a tad tiresome.

    I've always liked the Alpha Legion (not as much as the World Eaters, mind you.), ever since the first Dawn of War and a certain Sorceror named Sindri. However, back then, I had slaughter and skulls on the mind. Now, I move on to an Undivided front.

    So, here we have the first marine, compelte bar some basing and his eyes.



    Comments, critique all welcome.

    We are Legion!

    And by the way minus t, I am Alpharius.

    Very nice work, maybe spray it with a matt varnish to take off the glossiness of it.

    I like it. Can't really comment on the paintjob much cause i'm not that experienced in actual painting (and my painting jargon consists of brush and paint), but an army of them would look sweet.

    Very nice Alpha Legionnaires... Well done sir!
    Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

    I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...

    Because all the other Alpha legion players need to be shown how its done! ;Y

    Nice work, you should paint the eyes a strong bright red. I think you should change the colour of the top knot, it looks a bit odd, perhaps grey to white would look better. The blank shoulder pad needs some evil scrawllings on it to show that he is really anoyed that his boss wont let him wear chevrons. Dont forget to silver up the face grill too.

    Your leader should have some sick dragon scale cloak too.

    I have now actually painted the eyes and the shoulderpad now has a free-hand Hydra icon on it.
    Picture changed to show the extra stuff.

    And I definately am him, so I guess we're going to run into problems.

    Anyway, really nice painting dude, though I would suggest trying another base colour, it seems a little bland at the moment, and really doesn't help show off the mini.

    Also, perhaps a final 'edge' highlight for the blue would be a nice addition?
    It would really help make the mini 'pop'.

    Noted, shall give it a try tommorow. Perhaps a second regal blue coat might help brighten it up. As for the edge highlight, do you mean on the edges where they're not green? Or an edge of blue under the green?

    And we're all Alpharius.
