The helmet doesn't have the same impact as the Pig Iron models but i would put that down the the difference in style. The PI models have the gas mask eyes and leather to break up the tones between the helmet and the jacket. The guardsmen doesn't so it all looks alot darker, if you can find a way to light the eye area and surrounding face it will give the same impact as the PI models i reckon.

Great work on these, very nice and neat.

Tensiu Good! Alpha Legion is great, there's never enough of it's mind-fucking mind-fuckery. Show us more!

shaantitus Very cool. Good old alpha legion give us so many options. These guys look good. The pig iron models are great. Your paint jobs are fine too. Look forward to seeing more.

ntaw The thing that jumps out about your traitor guard is that there's still three Aquilas on the model. Helmet, breastplate and lasgun. Defacing them would make sense to me...but then again, the Alpha Legion was certainly one of subterfuge...

Good painting regardless! I like the improvised cultists. Cool stuff, seeing other manufacturers incorporated into GW based armies.

maelstrom48 Very nice! I like the cloth especially. Very smooth transitions between the highlights and shading.

The helmet looks off to me as well. I think it's the contrast between it and the cloth. If it were me, I would make the helmet and armor black (or very dark blue), with that turquoise as the highlight color.

Alpha Legion Operatives

Greetings! Here's a few pictures of my current project, 40k's favored perpetrators of mind-fuckery, the Alpha Legion! As there will be very few marines in this army, I'm saving them for last while I bring the cultists and traitor guard up to snuff. Comments and tips are greatly appreciated!
