I'll start with a nice little title image, which will be updated from time to time with army shots:


And now that the tone is set:

After about 25 years off, I'm picking up the hobby again, and I got my hands on a great bunch of miniatures from a friend.
There is about 5000 points worth of miniatures in the bunch, and I'll be splitting it in three armies between me and my kids.
I'm going with the Alpha Legion, and so far I've been greatly enjoying getting back into the painting process...

So here are my first two marines:


I still need to get my paint scheme just right, but it's getting there...
Tell me what you think, I'm quite happy with these two, since they are the first minis I've painted in 25 years....

I've decided to not have two threads, and so I'll pull my inquisition thread here as well, and I'll also showcase the painting I'm doing for the other armies in the house (there is an eldar and an Ork army that are being built for my kids and they have a bit less motivation than me with the painting, so i'll also be painting orks and eldar...

So, my inquisition army:

 ChaosDad wrote:
The fates have delivered to my door (the fates and the postal service, I must say...) a bounty of gorgeous Raging Heroes miniatures, and I'll be getting my hands on another bunch of them once they start shipping out their TGG2 figures...

In short, it's going to be an inquisitorial band with some battle sisters and some astra militarum auxiliaries. (And what I find fantastic is that I'll also be using Cypher and his fallen in both this and my chaos army, how very Cypher... )
For now I have the AM part, and some inquisitorial henchmen, and the sororitas part will come later, as will the Inquisitors themselves...

The fluff behind the concept involves a radical inquisitor who is a former Battle Sister and who applies the Decree Passive scrupulously, there are no 'men under arms' in her warband, only women. I find this wording loophole so amazingly stupid that I can't help but play with it. (I always found it to be a cheap trick in The Lord of The Rings, when Eowyn kills the Nazg├╗l... )

The non-fluff reason is that I really like the Raging Heroes minis, and I want to use a whole army's worth of them...

So here is my first trooper, ready to be painted:


And here she is, alongside a Cadian guard and a howling banshee, to give an idea of the scale of these raging heroes (oh, and the paint on those is not by me, by the way, it's just figures I pulled out of my boxes of stuff I bought used...



As you see, size-wise she's very generic-human-in-40k-size, but her built is much more slender i.e. she's not 'heroic' proportioned with thick limbs and a big head. I also have their assassin figure and that thing is very tiny... They are going to be a challenge to paint, that is for sure... I'll have to take a picture of the girls next to the space marines I'm going to use for Cypher and his Fallen, the difference in bulk looks just right in that case, making the Space Marines look properly huge...

Very nice. A good mix of colours. Have you thought about drilling out the gun barrels? It adds an extra layer of realism.

I think they are good!

The hydra you have painted in place of the khorne insignia on the berserker torso is a nice touch.

To make the transition a bit smoother, have you considered painting a little watered down blue over the area where the green highlight meets the blue? In the pictures it currently looks a bit stark (but photos don't always capture the 'real' appearance of a model, especially as they are normally viewed from 4 foot away on a gaming table).

Thanks! I can't take all the benefit, these are part of a big bunch of chaos marines that I got my hands on from a friend who had done most of the putting together of the miniatures... I did do a lot of gluing in the last few days, the result if which I'll post as I slowly work my way through painting the whole thing...

I'll take a picture of the whole bunch this afternoon so I have a 'before' picture...

All in all I have about 5000 points worth of things, that I first broke down in three 1000-ish points detatchments that me (with the Alpha Legion), my son (with the Iron Men) and my daughter (with the Purple Marines) will be painting and getting ready for battle...

So far, on my list, I have:

-Huron Blackheart
-Dark Apostle with Tzeench mark
-1 squad of 10 Chaos Space Marines
-1 squad of 5 Thousand sons
-1 squad of 5 Possessed
-1 squad of 5 Raptors
-1 squad of 5 Terminators

On my son's list:

-Karhn
-Chaos Lord on Juggernaut
-2 squads of 8 Berserkers
-1 squad of 8 Chaos Space Marines
-1 squad of 5 Terminators
-1 Obliterator

My daughter's list:

-2 Chaos Lords
-3 Squads of 6 Chaos Space Marines
-1 Squad of 5 Thousand Sons
-1 Squad of 5 Havocs
-1 Squad of 5 Raptors
-2 Obliterator

In addition to that I still have another squad of Berserkers, a squad of Plague marines, another squad of marines, a few cultists, 7 bikes, a squad of noise marines, a rhino (I'll probably put the noise marines in there, with the paintjob to go with it!), Abbadon, and then a few daemons: a daemon prince, a bloodthirster, furies, daemonettes (the good ones...), bloodletters, flesh hounds, pink horrors, flamers... Unfortunately i don't have quite enough of each of the daemons for complete squads, so I can't put together a 'proper' daemon ally detatchement. I can field a Khorne Demonkin detatchement, though, so that's probably what I'll be doing...

I also want to get my hands on a Dark Vengeance box to get the rules, the chosen, the cultists and the helbrute, and trade away the Dark Angels for more Chaos-y goodness...

Here is the whole thing as it stands now... Lots of fun to be had, I'd say...

After an evening of painting, an update!

First a pair of Chaos Spawns:



The first one I got already with some color, so I only did a wash and drybrush on it... The second one was me enjoying doing a gradual color shift...

And second, I present to you: my possessed! I'm quite happy with the way they turned out, but they also showed me that there is a thing that I need to get better at: highlighting...











Still a long way to go before I'm good at this, but I,m starting to feel confident enough to tackle the more challenging characters... I'll do the Raptors next, I think...

Any feedback is always welcome!

Thanks! They are the old school (I think in the time of 2nd of 3rd edition) possessed. Their champion has big horns, a powerfist and a chainsword held in a tentacle, it will be used as a lord in the "Purple Marines" detachement of my army (painted by my daughter...)

As for the sound sample, I must say that I have no idea what it is exactly... Maybe I should have it say "This quiet offends Slaanesh" ...

Speaking of the purple marines, here they are in all their purple and pink crested glory, painted by my daughter:



And my son's in progress "Iron Men", the Khorne demonkin detatchement of our glorious army:



And you might have noticed the beautiful models that I'm busy defacing with my painting skills in the back, a squad of raptors:

I had two Abaddon minis, but was missing one of the claw hand, and had a sorcerer that was missing a hand... So I swapped a few pieces around, chopped off a few hands from plastic marines, and got myself these two characters...

This one will be used as an aspiring champion in a squad where they all have top knots, so he's the toppermost top knot:



And I'm not sure yet what this terminator will be used for, but he has a very sorcerer feel to him... The trophy racks are not yet installed, but I'll use Abaddon's long ones...

Today I got my hands on a Hulkbuster Toy, which I'll be fidling with to make it into a hellbrute or a contemptor, for my son's Iron Men detatchement...
There is also a hulk figure to go with it, it's about demon-prince size, I guess that something can be done with it...
And yes, for the record, I fully condone the shameless perverting of Children's toys to the service of the Dark Gods...

Also, I've been mulling over what to do with the squad of nine bikes that I have, and then the madness struck: 9 bikes, 9 traitor legions... by Abaddon's overcompensating topknot, I had it! My bike champion is already cleary World Eater, so I'll paint the other eight as the other legions... The madness, oh, the madness!




Come on, somewhere you have to admit that there is something to this:


Oh, and my daughter is getting better...

This is a very good idea! I'll do just that, I think...
For the 40mm and the 60mm bases, I'll find a model of scenic resin bases that i like and the termies and big guys will also get 'easy' bases...
Today I'll be painting my first HQ choice: Huron, and I'll be using your shiny Alpha Legion's method for his armor... I'll let you know how it turns out for me...

I did two layers of blue, of a mix of paint and water slightly thicker than what I usually had for washes . The green over it is just a drybrush of vivid green just to get the sheen... I'm gonna use the same technique again for my other HQ for the detatchement, and in other combinations for other sections of the army. I have tzeench sorcerer that I'm starting in that has a basecoat of gold to build upon...

And yes, the infiltration thing of Huron felt really Alpha Legion, and I'll probably also have Cypher and a squad of chosen in that army, the sneak-iness will never stop... bwahahaha!

Time to make the Hulkbuster into something more... Dynamic...

He is too tall for a Contemptor, so I need to get him both shorter, and into a less boring position, considering that the only moving parts in this "action figure" are the arms...



So, after cutting off all of his limbs and adjusting the position, I managed to get him to do this:



He still is a bulky dude, but he's a bit closer to contemptor territory...



So he still needs a bit of patching up with greenstuff and a new paintjob, but then he'll be the Iron Men's centerpiece...

He can even do a superhero landing...
