After reading the awesome Praetorian of Dorn by John French I knew I had to put together a small Cell of operatives.
Alpha legion Sergeant.
The harrowing is taking place somewhere in the Sol System, Alpha Legion vs Imperial Fists, firefights in an urban setting.
I gave GW's sector imperialis bases a try and I was pleasently surprised, the details are copied from the SE Realm of Battle but are also flattened, marines stand on them nicely because of this.
Modeling / Painting :
The arms were cut and pinned to get the pose I aimed for, then greenstuff the gaps. Simple and effective.
Gave him a tabard inspired by the art of HH books, observed on warriors of all ranks. Even tho I dont know the meaning of this, I sculpted this hairy item next to the cloth. These things also appear on the AL contemptor... Hmmm...
For the armor I used mainly metallics and tamiya paints, following Kizzdougs' recipe as a starter and taking it from there.
C & C welcome.
