I actually remember copying your scheme for a while! It's really nice, but I'm guessing you want to paint something different now?

Yes mate. I want to collect the legion once again, but i'm struggling with the colors.
I kinda want a dark scheme but somehow i always end up getting light colors.

Controversial Opinion - you can always do the tried and true method of painting whatever colors you want and say it's Alpha Legion .

biggrin.png biggrin.png biggrin.png I guess that is true, but the in end up again in the loop of changing colour schemes every month or so 

I have been trying to paint some mkIII marines which you can see in here if you want to :)

Hey Nus!

 

I use a base of Stegadon Green with highlight of Sotek Green and tip it off with Sybarite Green in my latest colour scheme (colour scheme 6.0...probably not the last one...) if you need inspiration. Are you looking for a dark or light blue?

 

Though I often use an airbrush nowadays, at least for my heresy stuff...

I know the focus was on darker schemes, but now seemed like a good time to share this link for a non-metallic pre-heresy style scheme:  Though I haven't personally used this style, I really like it.

 

But for me, I am and always will be a sucker for the color shifting metallic style. Been addicted to it ever since I found my recipe.

Hey there mate! Long time no see.
Thats a really neat mini there!
Lets see, stegadon green, check
Sotek green, check
Need to get that sybarite green though...

I kinda want to start from a darker blue. I've been toying with macragge blue (the irony, i know...) shaded with druchii violet, but i got one kantor blue tonight, so i'll do more tests and maybe highlight it towards sotek green with moot green in some places (trying to not get overvoard with it this time).

Really cool tutorial. That green glaze makes it feel kinda seabound. Like if the marine was a lot in the sea and mould would start to hang on to the armour. It certainly ties up to the hydra theme really well.

Thats a nice metallic scheme, reqlly well applied and eye catching.
Though not for me really 😰
Cheers mate

I've been enjoying the one with exodus, but didnt like the trap/secret order mechanic that much to be honest, as i like more to play direct damage decks (because of magic the gathering)
Thats why i have an Ehrlen world eaters deck as my main one xD

With the new models coming I will be starting an alpha legion army coming next month. I will be embroiled in a 1000 pts army challenge in another community starting the 15.03.

My plan for a paint scheme is turqoise armour with dark purple cloaks and loincloths and dark metal trim on normal troops, bronze or gold on hqs and maybe some more elite units. I bought the turqoise and purple warcolours Sets for this, as well as metallic turqoise and emerald for accents. I want to go into zenithal higlighting and inks and glazes with this project.
What I still need is a good basing scheme. I am kind of stuck between Red desert and normal dessert but not really happy with either.

I am picking the alpha legion because I liked them in the heresy and in shroud of might and sons of the Hydra.

In terms of army composition I will take what will be in the shadow spear box and go from there, as I am unsure as to whats good in Chaos right now and what isnt. I had the idea of maybe deepstriking 2-3 Berserker squads with the alpha legion stratagems and letting the rest of the army go for ranged combat. Maybe ally in a questor traitors down the line. Definitely a sorceror or two, as my other army, Black templars are a decidedly nonpsychic melee focussed force.

So yeah this is me saying hi and maybe posting some testmodels when colours from crete have come to my doorstep ;)

Shadowspear is the perfect box set for Alpha Legion because you can have a Legion Seeker Squad, Exodus, and then the corrupted Chaos units.

I will have to Look at the boxes full contents and then see, what goes into my templars and what goes into the alpha legion.
How do you use 30k units like the Headhunters and exodus in 40k?

In general I have to remind myself to be patient till I know whats in the box to plan for 1k.
But propably it will be something like:

Lord with Plasma pistol and Power maul (obsidious mallex)
Sorcerer
3*5 csm heavy Bolter combiplasma
2*3 obliterators Mark of slaanesh
Tick daemonengine thingie

Going of that I might add in some deepstriking khorne daemon, a defiler and 1-3 plas/missile hellbrutes with a buffing sorcerer. Then see how many points are left and what I want to do with them.

Headhunters make great Chosen and Exodus can be a Special Character using the tables from Chapter Approved 2018.

For those of you running AL as loyalists in 40k what do you use to represent them rules wise (DW are cool and have tactical flexibility but SM have a wide range of chapter tactics and access to more toys)?

I mean, I was considering RG to how similar it is but UM could also be a good shout and DW have the flexibility.

Honestly if you go that route you could just take whatever you want as AL doesn't have preferences when infiltrating other chapters. ^^


Disclaimer:

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. 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.

Not using any loyalists to represent my Alpha Legion at the moment, but if I would I'd go for...anything really. If they're loyalists they already have infiltrated... :)
