Alpha Legion Veterans

The pictures did not turn out ass good as I had hoped. Much of the details and the highlights cant be seen. But they are good enough so I think I dare to share them here.

Here we have my newest addition to my Alpha Legion force, a unit of veterans.

I wanted to have a proper veteran unit that really stands out from my regular grunts.
I used instantmould to make a greenstuff faceplate copy of the helmet from the Alpha Legion special character Autilon Skorr.They have all been given a scaly cape, Its greenstuff from an mould I think originally was meant as a sort of horse armour. But it worked on these Astartes to.

To further add something to mark out the veterans I painted one of the shoulderpads in white marble. And I wanted this unit to have more gold then I usually gives my Alpha Legion.

I really like all the individual veteran in this squad, they are all unique.

Alpha Legion Destroyers

This is a unit I wanted for some time, a unit of Destroyers for my Alpha Legion.

I had some problem with the painting, I switched idea or paints scheme half way trough. This meant that I painted some layers or details in the wrong order and not up to the level I wanted or rather it took longer time then it had to. But in the end I managed to fix most of my errors.

When I had finally settled on a colour scheme it landed on a dark grey armour with tiger stripes in metallic blue/green.

I added some eldar grenades and equipments donated from a friend to represent the venom sphere special equipment that Alpha Legion Destroyers can get.
