So I have really been pushing myself to get all of my Alpha Legion Infantry painted up quickly so I can at least field the force partly painted and then this should allow me to take some time over the vehicles whilst doing infantry from other projects (legion of the damned) on the side in between drying phases which with washes in particular always take ages on vehicles.
Today I've got another 5 done to show you. This leaves just 3 more regular infantry to do and then I can start on painting Autilon Skorr who is my HQ for the force at 1850 or lower points levels. After that I can paint Armillus Dynat who will be HQ in points levels above that. I'm really looking forward to Alpharius being sculpted by FW but I'm not holding my breath!
These are my final infantry to paint:
And these are 5 models left after them!
So you guys were pretty unanimous on suggesting a red planet base for these guys and that's what I have decided to go with! Though I am obviously going to add extra tidbits to the bases, the ones below are the bases I've decided to go with. They are pretty cheap with all the bases I need plus many spares costing me around the £30 mark so pretty pleased! I'll be ordering these in the coming weeks so hoping to get them started mid July or so.
I've also decided to invest in alternative flying stems as the GW ones give me no confidence with the heavier resin flyer, especially the Fire Raptors. So these should do the trick nicely as well.
Hopefully that has whetted your appetite on these guys for now and more should be incoming next week! If I can get all the infantry painted by July that will make me a happy man and mean I've painted the 22 infantry in about 21 days so just over 1 a day! As always I am sure I would have made a better job if painstakingly painted them like other people do, but I am always in a rush to play with new toys!!!
