Hello everyone. I'm sorry in advance for my English, as not many people can speak it here in Moscow)

I was looking forward to starting a Horus Hersy army as soon as Forgeworld released the 1st book. I've went through a lot of variants (Dark Angels, World Eaters, Custodians) but in the end stopped on the Alpha Legion due to it mysteriousness and the lore describing them as actually being a special force amongst already special enough other astartes, mixed  with some kind of secret service stuff.

So that set, i started buying dem minis, starting from a single "Betrayl at Calth" (if only did i know then that i'm gonna buy actually 3 boxes...). After assembling all that i suddenly realised that i have nearly no time at all to actually paint all that (not mentioning that i was buying more and more minis every week xD). So i've found a local painter whose style i really liked and given him a number of models to paint. Now, little by little, he is finishing them and i can share them with you) Mind, that the color maybe not the typical AL you see, but that is the color i was looking for them. And i really like how it looks now. 
I'll be posting in the order the guy's painting them, so, here we are:

 

Last Update

 

Alpharius

Armillus Dynat

Glaive

Sicaran
Tartaros terminators

Knight-Castigator

Mastodon wip

Thunderhawk1
Thunderhawk2
Lernaean terminators

 

Whirlwind Scorpius

Nothing special about it, just a nice mini. 
gallery_98206_13991_373716.jpggallery_98206_13991_551301.jpg

 

2 Leviathan Dreads

Here i had a particular request. I imagine those beasts fighting where the fighting is the worst, so they SHOULD be damaged in some way and can't be in mint condition. They turned out to be exactly as i pictured them in my head. I've bought all  the weapons options and magnetised them, but only a couple of them can bee seen in photos.

gallery_98206_13991_446998.jpg

 

Sicaran venator.

Again i made the magnetisation. Unfortunately, the model was not of perfect quality, so you can see the green stuff in some places, but it stiil looks awesome on the table.

Seeker squad.

For infantry i had several ideas - 1st they shoud not have any destinctive markings, 2nd - black eye lenses, because it's just not logical to have a super-stealthy marine hiding in shadows with 2 bright lenses shining. In my opinion)

That's it for now. But some interesting stuff is coming up. Including Alpharius himself converted using Lorgar's model) Thanks for reading, cheers.

Really lovely.

 

The stand out for me would be the urban camo on the Recon Marines/seekers.

 

Your freehand work is also nearly perfect, for a moment I thought they were transfers they are that good. Somehow you've made the Hydra on the Scorpius look 3 dimensional which is also very impressive.

 

All around a great start, and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

 

Thanks for sharing!

The paintjob is not mine as i do not have enough skill for that) But i'll tell the painter, thanks.

Thanks. I've been looking for the right color for quite a long time. And i am not dissapointed with the result)

Great job on the head! I'm personally not a fan of the sculpt of the Fw head, but you've done an excellent job painting it :tu:

How are you painting the matte black areas? Love the contrast it provides to the metallics.

While i was absent - i started painting mastodon. Due to too much work and university stuff, it progresses very slowly, though i already like how it looks on the table.
