Hello friends,

 

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.

 

Basing :

 

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...

 

Spoiler

 

For the armor I used mainly metallics and tamiya paints, following Kizzdougs' recipe as a starter and taking it from there.

 

C & C welcome.

Finalizing the paint scheme with those 2 veterans, they should recieve their additional CCW and pouches later on.

 

C & C welcome.

How are you marking them out as veterans as opposed to your regular marines?

There will be no regular marines!! :D

 

Also there are more options like the stripe on the helmet or the trefoil-formed Hydra for the more specialized units.
