Absolutely beautiful army brother, that's about all there really is to say :rolleyes:

Congratulations on the award, I don't know how the other armies looked, but I think it's a fair bet to say that it was well deserved!

Cheers!

Woah, nice ultra alphas, really good way to be able to break up the army. Fab army overall!

The infiltrating pseudo-UMs are terriffic!
Nice way to add spots of color to the army

the AL Marines are also very good, I really envy your painting skills...

Those models are utterly sick. I love the blends for your colors and your conversions, damn fine work.

The Chaos Marine looks at the two of them, "I could just shot you both in the head but I'm too lazy." The Guardsmen looks at them, "I've been shooting you both for an hour now and not a damn things happened yet."

Gotta echo the Ultramarine love, brilliant concept. The Sorcerer is really beautiful too, and the paintwork overall is great.
Also, those old school Missile Launchers fit Alpha Legion very well, excellent choice on them.

The one element I'm not a huge fan of is the Lord. I thought your previous mutated Lord was awesome, but this one's proportions look askew to me. It might just be the angle of the picture, but to me it looks as though his thighs are a lot longer than his lower legs, and that his knees face inwards a bit. Could you take some more shots of him possibly?

Gotta say that I indeed particularly enjoyed painting this squad. Even thought about painting the whole army like that for some time.
But Maybe I'll just add another squad.


Anyway Thanks everybody for the kind words! I am truly touched.

Coming Next ?

I do wanna go on with this army, Right now i'm working on a raptor squad , A Forge World Dreadnought is also considered (gotta get money first)

I also wanna be able to play this army with the loyalist codex so i'm "completing " each squad to 10 marnes with heavy weapons, except for the Fake Smurfs which will be used as sternguard veteran squad (so no heavy weapons but stormbolters and combi weapons)

Fantastic idea of under-cover chosen, very sneaky...the best Hydra marine in my eyes is definetly the one kneeling down with the powerfist. Excellent.

Though it has to be said I do prefer your old Chaos Lord, while the new one is a great model, I personally would use this army with the old one.

And get saving as I for one am looking forward too seeing a FW Alpha dread all painted up.

absolutely stunning work, and the infiltrators posing as Ultramarines is one of the best and most well-executed ideas I've seen in this hobby!

I love the mix of dark yet luminous greens and the turquoise (sp?) details. Very nice and characterful paintjobs. Best chaos marines I've seen in a long while. :D

Really good job here, I especially like the design modification to the UM symbol, so subtle you almost don't notice but a really great touch. Good stuff! I have a feeling the pics arent doing justice though, should try and take some shots on a cloudy day, or get your hands on a lightbox if you can -

no don't take storm bolters on the sternguard, they will lose the special rounds.
