It's not great, but it's something.


Ugh - please do NOT base it off of that!

Besides, given what we learned from LEGION, we know that Alpharius and Omegon, and indeed, no one in the Legion!, looks like that.

That's when Mr. Blanche apparently was suffering from a high grade fever and attempted to still draw a Primarch...


Good point, I wasn't thinking at the time.

I should also really get round to reading the Heresy series as well.. even if most of it has been ruined by the endless spoilers.

That paint job looks amazing, and very effective!!! have you considered the Chapterhous True scale kits for making the Primarch's?

Although if you read Legion the Primarchs are almost identical in every way to their own troopers, barrinfg a miniscule height difference when in full plate armour.

It would keep them all looking the same but you get the extra height and broadness of the primarchs

Thanks for the input and kid words guys

@ Dantay_xy:
Yes, but I don't really like the chapterhouse stuff, looks a bit off to me.. it's just a testmodel after all and I don't think I want to waste any more cash on it before I have made up my mind. I might end up doing the primarchs in some other way that truescale, I feel it becomes a tad too big when compared to the other marines. It might look better once I get some arms and pads on the damn thing though.. we'll see.

I have a little hobby-thread going in the P&M section. Some say it's the best blog on Dakka, some don't agree, most belive it would be better if I finished at least one project some time this century and not just kept starting new ones.

That's some really nice work you are doing there man! I really dig the magos, and your marines look very dynamic.
How many models do you think the final force will be, or are you just building as the mood suits you? Either way, it will be great looking both on and off the table, I am sure!

I was reading the preview books from GW yester day and they are releasing a limtied edition HH book calles Aurelian and it has the description of the Alpha's Primarch as:

Alpharius was the last of those present through long-range sending. He stood helmed, while all the others were bare-headed, and his hololithic image was stable while each of the others uffered corruption from the vast ranges between their fleets. Alpharius, almost a head shorter thsan his brothers, stood scaled in crocadilian resplendence, his reptile-skin armour plating glinting in the false light of his manifestation. His salute was the sign of the aquila, the Emperors own symbol, made with both hands across his breastplate

This was from a meeting between 8 of the rebel Primarchs during the Heresy. Interesting hat he would hide his features even from his brothers and even arouse suspicion with his opening gesture.

Anyways thought it might help with ideas for the Primarch.

@ Wehrkind: I have parts and an army list for 50ish marines, 5 in command squad, 20 tactical, 10 assult with jumppack, 10 assult without jump packs.. a pile of drop pods and some funnies.. I have some terminators too but they are not the priority at the moment.

So.. update! I haz building stuffs.

I haz building tacticul thingies.. Will make customz city bases for them all. (all 50+ models that is)




Sergeant for tactical squad one.




Sergeant for tactical squad 2.. and no.. he's not being painted.. he's made from a bunch of recycled parts from many people's bitboxes..



Started to build a techmarine for no good reason..



And here's the assult squad sergeant.. sheesh it's tricky to reposition limbs on metal models.. took a friggin' age to saw, hack and file him into some semblance of order.



Basecoated the rest of the commandsquad and fiddled some paint on the gunship.. nothing worth posting pics on as of yet though.

That's actually a very Codex thing to do, so the irony is... awesome!

It is a fairly standard 'veteran sergeant' marking as well, so I can see a veteran of any sort making use of it.

And more importantly, it looks really good too!

@Miss Dee: the metal bolter with the box mag is from the old SM scout bikes metal kit, dunno if it's possible to get hold of anymore.

@Kensei81: The chainaxes are from the Plastic Khorne Berzerker kit, a bit on the downer is thay you only get 3 of that type, then 3 other.. too many chainswords in that kit if you ask me.

@ephrael: Good to hear, remember to use a fine detail brush for the highligts and water your paints better to be forced to put down the highlight with three brushsttokes than getting a thick and uneven line.

Thanks for the comment's guys, it boosts the motivation to keep up a steady rate of modelling and painting.
Mmm been a bit low on the painting lately, I am styling a powersupply for a friend's tattoo machine into something slightly steampunkish... it's a bit tricky, especially that functioning mechanical clockwork I put on the side of it took hours to get right.
It's something of a rush job and I want to get it done by Saturday.. then I'll get back on the alphas properly.

Well, the commandsquad is all painted and done.. but what to start painting next?

So.. what do -You Guys- think I should paint next?
Avalible on the list is a bolter armed squad (two acctually but one at the time) an assultsquad on foot and an assultsquad with jumppacks.
There is also that big Gunship (Mk I Ophidian pattern appearing on page 1) and the Razorback apc on page 2.

any suggestions?

++Update Time++

Wohooo! finally got my hardware into working order so here are som pictures for you, this will sure make Alpharius happy since he sent me a message begging for updates a while back.
Man needs his weekly fix of alpha legion it seems.

So, apothecary finished and based, for your pleasure.. or horror.. I dunno..



Command squad veteran in Mk VI armor, I really like that breastplate with the ammo-slings.. and mkVI with chainaxe.. yeah,it's awsome.





Melta Specialist in MkIV with meltacarbine, I am getting slightly worried that I am going overboard with my bases.. they are becomming a tad.. scenic.






Groupshots!



Almost done with the company champion.



Now.. who might this base wip. be intended for eh? Like I said earlier.. it's going overboard badly here.. I am not kidding. I'll let you wonder about this until the next update or so.. it will be equally awsome.

I just noticed something odd; on none of the pictures of the lizard cloaks they seem to be highlighted, thats a bit strange and annoying since I highlighted every damn scale.
Must be that the camera mixes it up somehow. darn it.
