Alpha Legion Progress

Hello again,

I have been making progress on my Alpha Legion force for Shadow War and Warhammer 40000 (well, 30000). I have found a metallic blue that matches near enough to my planned designs and have begun to apply it to an old Rhino, Marine and Terminator.
The Rhino

The Terminator, the one I'm happiest with so far.

Basic Marine Legionary
There is still more detail work and finishing touches to be done yet, as well as a lot more marines and vehicles. Stay tuned for more info....

Warhammer 40k/30k Restart for Me!

Hello folks, long time no post,

But anyhoo, I am looking with hope at the new Warhammer 40k 8th Edition rumours and playing in a campaign of Shadow War: Armageddon - an update of Warhammer 40000: Kill Team. 

I have got my hands on some new 40k models, which will go towards a force of Space Marines for both Shadow War and 8th Edition 40k. However, 40k technically is incorrect for these guys, as they fit more into the 30k/Horus Heresy era of the 40k fluff. They are Alpha Legion, with currently models being plastic Mk4 Maximus armour marines and some Tartarus Terminators.

The above image shows a rough idea of what colour scheme that I intend to use on my own Alpha Legion, a mix of metallic blue, black and silver. I'm using the Forgeworld Horus Heresy books colour illustrations as shown above as inspiration. Here's some more:
Additionally, I have been given an Ork Kommando belonging to a friend that I have the chance to tidy up, base and paint as my Kill Team "captured" him in the campaign before he was eventually rescued. So I am painting him with a hydra tatoo of the Alpha Legion, more on that soon....
