I recently finished another addition to my Horus Heresy-era Alpha Legion army – a full 10-man support squad armed with volkite chargers!  The more of this army I paint, the more I want to paint; I think it’s going to look incredible once an entire army is finished and on the gaming table.  Right now I have only a small collection, but at some point I would love to add more tanks and tactical marines.  From Forge World, Vindicators with laser destroyer arrays, a Spartan Assault Tank, and of course some form of super heavy like a Fellblade or a Glaive.

Like the rest of my Alpha Legion, these were primed black, and then I airbrushed GW Air Leadbelcher as the base.  On top of that, Badger Minitaire Ghost Tints.  Blue from the bottom, spraying lightly, and then Plasma Fluid from the top.  The more coats you apply, the deeper/darker the color gets.  The weathering and dust is done with Skrag Brown as well as Secret Weapon Miniatures weathering pigments.

If you’re interested in having space marines of your own painted, I’m open to doing commissions and offer reasonable rates.  I can get GW kits at a discount, which would eliminate the need to ship miniatures to me for painting; instead everything can be ordered and sent directly to me.  Please feel free to get in touch via a comment here on the blog, or email at greylikestorms(at)



Over the last year or so I’ve become slowly more and more frustrated with Etsy – it seems like each month I get fewer sales, and I think part of that is due to Etsy’s constantly changing search algorithm.  It gets harder and harder for buyers to find my dice bags.  Ideally, I’d love my own website, but I don’t have the cash to hire someone to build one for me.

So what I’m doing is branching out a little bit, and giving Zibbet a try.  It’s similar to Etsy, but newer.  If nothing else, it means an additional place where people can find Greyed Out dice bags.  And that’s always helpful, right?

If you’re looking for a professional quality dice bag that will last you through years of gaming, head over to Greyed Out on Zibbet and check out what I have listed so far, like this Classic RPG Map dice bag.  It’s fully reversible, features a cool retro blue-and-white dungeon map design, and will hold all of your dice.
