Alpha Legion - Horus Heresy - Betrayal at Calth - Finished

All that was left to finish was the bases and the details.

I was a bit perplexed by what colour to paint the helmet crest and tabard., initially I went for red but that looked too much Night Lords so I repainted it grey and washed with black then highlighted with grey again. I think that fits in better with the Alpha Legion colour scheme as well. I did leave the eye lenses red though.

The bases were basically brown with weathering powder applied to give it that dusty Mars earth look.

The models really turned out the way I was hoping for and I am pretty pleased. This just makes my decision even harder now.

Only one legion left to try out.....



  1. Love this :) Perfectly executed!

  2. Beautifully done, man! Good stuff!

  3. Fantastic work. Lovely eye catching colours the lot! :)

  4. Looks nice, how did you get the glow effect?

    1. If you are asking about the plasma glow, then all I do is paint the 'coils' white and once dry I wash with Nihilakh Oxide.
