Alpha Legion Support Squad Painted!

Posted: August 10, 2016 in Uncategorized

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)
