I was kindly given some of the old chaos Spaqce Marines by a friend so decided to paint them up as the infamous Alpha Legion. Notorious for the cunning and deceit, and the subject of many a meme, they look quite fancy in teal and silver. Also in the game lore they make extensive use Chaos cultists which is something that appeals. I also bought the commander from the Blackstone Fortress set seperately to go with them.
Within the squad I have a leader with power fist, a heavy bolter, a flamer, a standard and then a mix of bolters and chainswords with bolt pistols.
I thinking of getting a box of the fallen to convert and paint up in robes to play on their in universe nature.
Either way what I have now will make for a good Kill Team force.
I’ve been slowly working my way through my backlog of minis. Now that there is a new (9th) edition of 40k coming out it give me extra impetus to get a decent sized army painted. So to help that along I’ve finished off my Death Guard Terminators.
I had already painted one of the blightlord terminators for a Kill Team game so I do have a squad of five in total. They all came from the Dolorous Strain box set.
I’ve also got a little squad of the Death Shroud versions- topoled up for melee they should be fairly powerful in the game.
Unfortunately I used up the rest of my Death Guard Green so I need to wait until the shops open back up to get some more to finish off my characters and Daemon Prince. Then it will be pretty much army done.
I love these little models- painted up 30 of them now. Great fillers as horde type cannon fodder for either my Death Guard army or to be worked into a Necromunda campaign.
I went for a mix of colours, keeping them fairly bright too, green, blue and a pink/ purple mix.
If you are interested… here is where I take my photos. It is a nicely waethered bit of stone by my back door (yes I need to tidy it up a bit).
Post will be a bit sporadic going forward. Nicola and I have come down with a mild case of Covid-19. Nothing too serious but it is surprisingly debilitating.
