Saracen Medium Spearmen


I just finished another unit of medium spearmen for my Saracen collection.

The miniatures are a mixture of Perry metals and Gripping Beast metal and plastics.
The banner is just printed paper that I painted the edges and some areas on the banner (to make it better blend in with the paint of the miniatures).

Old School Land Raiders

Im really happy about these Land Raider Proteuses.

These have served in my friend Kristoffers Ork army in many years. 

I have put in lots of work to de-orkify them to the Imperial side again.
There were in a pretty bad shape but with lots of bits, plasticard and greenstuff they are again battle ready.

They are painted in metalic blue/green with purple colours in the shadings.
I painted white markings and details and added some transfers.

I wanted them to look as they have been in the fields for some times so the metallic tracks are painted to look really worn and the overall tanks are painted rather muddy around the tracks but I still wanted to keep the blue/green rather clean to make it really pop.


Refitted with newer plastic Land Raider engine blocks.


And just for the rule of cool... Two unit of Breachers in their dedicated transport Land Raider Proteuses.

For some work in progress pictures from when I built them:

Saracen archers

Here we have a unit of medium archers for my Saracen collection.

They are painted more for speed then details. Just adding that extra when it is needed as these are just regular rank and file troops. Its more then enought for an mass battle game.
Over all im happy with the end result.

The miniatures are mostly Gripping Beast plastics with some metal miniatures tossed in for that added variation.

Alpha Legion Destroyers

Here we have my new Alpha Legion Destroyer unit.
Paintingwise its a little experimentation. I tried using chipping fluid for a neat effect. The idea was to have a dark grey colour that is chipped revealing the metallic blue/green of my regular Alpha Legions underneath.
The transfers of dark red markings on the shoulders didnt turn out that good, the miniatures are to dark so you can hardly see its even there. But the hand painted ones in lighter grey on the other shoulder turned out better.

The models are regular plastic mkIV marines but with different weaponry, arms and other bits. I wanted to have the gritty feel to them so of coarse they have chainswords instead of regular blades.

Two of the Destroyers were given plastic 40k Thousand sons flamers to represent Toxiferran flamers.
The Sergeant is equipped with a thunderhammer because its so cool.
