Painting Alpha Legion

  Ive always loved the alpha legion and after reading some of the fluff from recent books ive decided to start a new chaos army. I already have a plan for the army (using warriors of chaos as a base for all the regular marines and ive made some human operatives based on the "legion" book but more on that later.) but before i can do anything i had to get the color right first. Ive looked around for tutorials and i noticed that some use just blue and silver as the main colors while others throw green in aswell. I personally have always imagined them having blueish-green armour. No scales, as i see the AL as being a plain, not trying to stand out kind of legion. Hiding in plain sight kind of thing. Its hard for me to explain.

True Scale Noise Marines!

Rob from the club has some really awesome chaos marines, with light up rhinos and heavily converted Daemon Princes and obliterators. Last week he came by with some truescale noise marines.
 I honestly cant say how he did them but he did sculpt all the shoulder pads and i think the legs are from chaos terminators. Theyre used for kill team missions.

Pre Heresy Storm Shields and Mortarion W.I.P

My order from  came in. Im really suprised at how fast it took for it to arrive. Ordered on monday, came on wednsday. I will definatley keep going there for more bits! I got 2 packs of "mechanical sheilds" by Maxmini. Ive seen some artworks from the Horus Heresy and a few of their novel covers and they show some marines using sheilds that look similar to these. They remind me of riot shields. Ive got enough for my 20 terminators and i think they will complete the preheresy look im going for.

Pre Heresy Death Guard (Deathwing) W.I.P

 Just a quick post on an army ive been working on for the past month. I did a pre heresy deathguard army back in 09 and i after i sold it i kinda stopped caring about the whole heresy thing. After reading "Flight of the Eisenstien" i felt inspired again. This time to make an elite army of Mortarions most trusted warriors of the first company.So above is my Typhon/Belial. I went against the trading card artwork that shows him in dark grey armour because i want the army to be unified in color. They are all gonna be TH/SS termies so i ordered 2 packs of mechanical sheilds from Maxmini since they fit the pre heresy look which is why other than Typhon( who also counts as a TH/SS) they all are missing shield hands .
