30k Alpha Legion - Early painting Pictures

Hi everyone,

With a week mostly off work, I'm determined to make some good progress on my Alpha Legion! My girlfriend got up at 5.30am for work today and I decided to get up at the same time, go for a walk and then crack on with painting! Lunch break now but a good productive morning!

Here are pictures of an armless marine that has been virtually finished other than his arms etc, and then 4 more marines that need to have a lot of highlighting done but the basic look is there. 

Hopefully you'll get another update later today from me! Constructive thoughts are welcome :)

Peace out,



  1. Looking great so far, especially the job you have done on the studded armour. I like the OSL you have from the eye lenses as well. If I could make a suggestion, it would be: don't let the OSL stray too far down the nose-piece.

    1. Cheers mate! I've tried to pull the OSL back as you suggest with the others, what you think?

  2. Looking good from here buddy, if a little bit greener than I was expecting? You seem to be treading a fine line between Alphas and Sons of Horus, though you're on the right side of it at the moment I think!

    Studded panels look really good too, though I like to try and make the discolourations around mine come down the model too, as if it's spreading via gravity.

    1. Yeah it is, but I guess you've already seen my reasoning for that in the next post!

      I'm thinking that once they are all done I will add some streaking effect with a little agrax? Haven't got any right now though so will have to wait and see. I go through washes like nobodies business...
