I've been playing a few games with Wadey and Keepy lately and been having a great time getting into the swing of a new game (despite my absolute tabling today ;)).
But I digress, back to the photos of my Alpha.
First up is my converted headhunter unit. I've used secret weapon Oni masks superimposed onto mk6 helmets, more for the rule of cool rather than any solid fluffy reason but they turned out looking quite nice regardless.
The one on the left has transitioned from his rifle to knife and is about to hook into someone backhand style. On the right is the units banestrike heavy bolter, the whole unit also has scales sculpted onto various parts of their armour, primarily their chests.
And three more, two standard and the Headhunter prime who's run out of ammunition and switched to his pistol. He has a greenstuff symbol on his shin and his right shoulder is scaled up. I use a very simple method of making scales that I'll do up a little tutorial for sometime soon.
Up next is my obviously WIP contemptor, although what you see is done he just needs his arms finished up. His eyes are done with watered down coats of vallejo fluros. I reckon the Alpha Contemptor is by far the nicest in the range, chock full of nice little armour details.
Using parts from Autillon Skorr, Mk6 marines, Mk3 marines, EC Palatines and Anvil Industries is my Praetor, Tavi Psi. He has neato minotaur transfers of the greek letter Psi adorning his armour. I love how this guys pose has turned out, just a chilled out badarse.
So as you can see I'm slowly getting there one Legionnaire at a time, but I feel like my batch painting is getting better, something I don't normally do.
I'd love to hear any feedback you have on them.
FOR THE EMPEROR?
