Has anyone used the Forge World Alpharius model in their armies yet and what did you run him as?

I was working on making my own version of the Alpha Legion heraldry.

An doing the process I thought that maybe I could turn in to something like this.

I wonder if this is too close to the trademark

That because it is a fidget spinner rolleyesclean.gif

The heraldry i am working on is a little bit more complex.

I was working with a Triskelion as a base and just noticed that it would be fun to put on a fidget spinner

Looks good, though I never did get the charm about fidget spinners...I'm old...

The TL;DR is because people think medication is bad, they search for other ways for kids with ADD/ADHD to focus. Fidget Spinners and Fidget Cubes were one way they found helps.

 

Unfortunately, since they're classified as "toys" kids who didn't have ADD/ADHD started getting them and getting them banned in schools because the sounds are distracting.

I'm thinking about adding an Alpha Legion Detachment to compliment my Death Guard in order to make a competitive list. Do you guys have any recommendations on what I should take? I was thinking cultist and Chosen. Any other considerations?

Fluffy or competetive? Fluffy Cultists and Chosen appears to be the way to go. Competetive I'd say Slaanesh Havocs with Lascannons.

I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

Black Legion.

I'm not kidding - the Alpha Legion isn't anywhere near as competitive as it was pre-ToT, Forwards Operatives, and Cultists-nerfs.

I am looking for a bit of feedback on my heraldry project.

 

Spoiler

 

I am not sure that the hydra neck has enough length and curve.

And I still need to fix the symmetry, but it getting there.

Too skeletal for my taste.

I prefer the ones that are to be found on the top right of the alpha legion transfer sheet.

They are the ones that inspired me the most

Personally the only thing I can really say is that the "snake heads" doesn't feel attached to the circle imho. There's something with the "flow" of where it connects to the circle.

 

A bit vague I know...

The emblems look awesome howvever the "necks" are at an angle in relation to the circle. I think the whole picture would improve if you place the "necks" at a tangent to the circle. I think that would also solve lack of "flow" Excessus mentions.

 

Hope it helps

That's what I was thinking as well. In all the official emblems the necks are bend backwards.

Thank for all the great feedback.

I have made a new test file based on the feedback.

Spoiler

 

I think that this gives more of a flow to it and give the hydras some more focus

 

Edit: I have a finished version that I am happy with. Again thank for all the feedback. It helped

Hello guys
I was looking for some tips on how to paint alpha legion but all i found is the metallic light blue version. Do you guys know which paints to use with a non metallic version?
A deep blue or a light one and then add green?

Cheers

You can do the Heresy era Alpha Legion (like there's just one lol) which is dark blue and silver trim with white Hydra symbols on the shoulder pad. Use Macragge Blue and shade it down with Drakenhof Nightshade. White Scar for the Hydra Symbols and a light silver for trim (Leadbelcher works if you're careful).

I've used Stegadon Scale Green with a Coelia Green Shade for non-metallic Alpha Legion, and still do for my Cultists. You can check out Excessus' cracking stuff for non-metallic Alpha Legion.

I've never tried it personally, but I feel like GW's recipe for the Thousand Sons could look quite nice: Thousand Sons Blue shaded with Nuln Oil or Drakenhof Nightshade, then highlighted with Ahriman Blue and Fenrisian Grey.
