Nice to see someone taking their time with these. I unfortunaetly have very little Patience for the fiddly bits. Especially digging the purple lightning claws

Cheers Taking my time really isn't by choice though - I'm just slow and get distracted easily

+rep for alpha legion!
The colour scheme was what attracted me to them in the first place :D And the scheme isn't that difficult to do to be honest it just seems that way because of the contrasting colours All it is is dark blue > lighter blue > blue wash > highlight edges heavily in dark green > Light highlights of light green... easy :D

It's only been 18 months since my last update! I've been getting back into the hobby after another break thanks mostly to moving back to the UK and meeting up with old friends and acquaintances for games.

With the excuse of needing them for future games I've finished the first set of cultists for my Alpha Legion. The idea is that because Alpha Legion are all about their spy networks and corrupting loyalist forces from the inside, all my cultists would be guard models which would then be able to cross over into my future renegade army once I expand on what I already have enough. All of the imperial eagles are supposed to be very subdued on the models and I still haven't decided which scenic bases to get for my chaos so I've held fire on painting bases yet so I can get them looking similar colour-wise. I'll most likely be getting some Micro-art studios bases as they're awesome and a local company (well, they were 5 minutes down the road when I lived in Gdynia) but I can't choose between these or these.













Anyway, comments, as always, are welcome. As are votes on which bases

Because the world needs more silly ideas. Here's my next little project.



Also, I'm sure it's been brought up before but seriously the arse-end of a heldrake looks like a mouse and a weird cha-octopus thing

Ah, Alpha Legion are my passion and joy, fluff-wise. And I mean one of the two warbandsI collect is them, too, so... my passion on the tabletop and painting desk too, I suppose, for all that my painting style is rather lower quality input/output (that is, blue basecoat-> lime green drybrush). Honestly I rather like the effect you seem to have achieved here: a sort of "soft pastel blue-green," or at least slightly more so than most AL warbands I see. And I'm there with you with the slaanesh-leaning, too (my other warband of silver and bone being my Khorne-leaning one).

Good luck with the Heldrake. I hope you're looking forward to spending 10+ hours painting wing trim. I jammed a longer bony tail into that sphincter-jet myself (woo-er, missus!) and the added tail really helped balance out the mini's aesthetics, I think.

I do like your extended heldrake tail but I'll be doing lots of work on the inside of it so it wouldn't probably have the space to attach one to mine. It seems I hid my silly idea in plain sight



I'm just waiting on a set of battery holders to arrive from China and I'll start building it properly. I've already dry-fitted the main body and head/neck and I might magnetize the weapons too as the hades autocannon looks way cooler than the bale flamer but I see myself using the flamer in more games.

I'll also upload pics of the 2 rhinos I rescued soon

Somewhere on here somebody posted a file for getting a replacement tail 3D printed.

Just for you @Kreuger , I did some research and BAM!

Just in case you were wondering, I'm finding it a lot easier to search Heresy using 'heresy online <thread topic>' on Google since our search function is a joke...though it helps that I also remembered the thread and knew what I was looking for.

Great plog so far @Turnip86 ! I look forward to seeing this Helturkey lit up

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

@ntaw thanks man. So @Turnip86 grab that tail model send it of to shapeways or another mail order 3D printer and you're in business.

One rescued Rhino. When I got this it was so badly put together with gaps the size of a heldrake's ass between parts of the body. Luckily being badly put together meant I could rip it apart easily so I did just that and then dunked it in dettol for a day. After stripping it I started on the repair. Part of that was sticking on Alpha Legion FW doors as well as filing down the bits of gunky glue that were on the flat areas... have I mentioned it was badly put together?

At that point I reassembled and primed it so I could better see what needed more work. I went over any of the remaining small gaps with milliput and then a layer of liquid green stuff to smooth things out. I also had to fill a massive gap in the havok launcher, no idea how the guy that built this thing managed to fail to put those 2 pieces together but there were a lot of large sticky-outy bits from where the model was attached to the sprue so that probably has something to do with it.

Anyway, this is it ready for another fine layer of primer and then ready to paint. Possibly for the competition next month considering it's free for all and I'm not gonna have time to start it before that... I get to go to insomnia for 4 days!
