Alpha Legion - Horus Heresy - Betrayal at Calth - WIP
After doing my successful testing on using the Tamiya X23 paint as a candidate for the Alpha Legion colour scheme I have started on my next batch of Betrayal at Calth miniatures.
The plan is pretty straight forward.
Prime with black and base colour of Leadbelcher.
Next a good coverage of my 60/40 black/brown wash mixture.
Layer on Tamya X23.
Some observations, the Tamiya had to be applied in three layers to get the rich, deep blue colour I was after. My reasoning is that this legion is all about stealth so the bright blue colour from Forge World is less consistent with the fluff, hence I preferred the deep blue.
The pictures are great but didn't quite capture the colour as it is in real life which is a shame, hopefully the finished ones will.
I need to finish off the details and bases next, so stay tuned for the finished squad.
