Here's a quick update on the 5 models I showed you earlier today. I will get round to comments later tonight! As pointed out by Nick these have a distinct Son's of Horus vibe about them as well. Believe it or not that was accidentally deliberate. Accidental in the sense I wasn't originally intending it, but when this colour popped up on my test model I loved the idea of having my Alpha Legion army looking a little like another legion. I have always set out to deliberately have no iconography on this army as I just see Alpha Legion as being able to easily pass themselves off as another legion and wouldn't outright identify themselves in the field with a big insignia on their chest.
But I have a very specific ideal in mind with the Alpha Legion so I'm passing no judgement on other aesthetics! Anyway I went with the darker green look to have that ambiguity.
Thoughts on the scheme and the quality of painting are most welcome with the usual etiquette rules.
