Hey guys! So with all of the recent (last year or so) FW releases expanding the Horus Heresy marks of armour and range, I have decided to start a loyalist, pre-heresy force of my beloved Alpha Legion I plan on having (as of now) entirely a mk IV armour force, as it's my favorite armour mark and it shows that they are fighting towards the beginning of the actual heresy (or even at Isstvan V). I, unlike most people modeling pre-heresy forces, am not using the FW rules outlined in "Betrayal" but rather am using the Space Wolf Codex because they seem to best represent a legion codex (with slightly larger squads in Blood Claws and the Long Fangs serving as Destroyers). This was mainly chosen against the new CSM codex mainly because I want a mainly, if not entirely, drop pod force. Anywho, back to the modeling aspect! I got a couple sets of mk IV armour for Christmas, and so hopefully there should be a number of updates over the next few days! Today, I finished up the test model for the force, and I have to say I like him quite a bit.
Here is my test model:
I decided to make the eye lenses a little brighter than I typically do simply because of how dark the model is on the whole, so I figured some bright lenses would really pop-out at you, Some of ya'll may also notice I didn't do the typical stylized "A" insignia for the AL, but went for the serpent; this is mainly out of personal preference because the "A" always screams "Alphabits Legion", not "Alpha Legion" to me! Anywho, I'm very open to any comments or criticism as this is only the first model. Thanks guys!
