Android here with the first of my new army progress updates. After stagnating with my painting over the last couple of months, I’m going to start sharing my progress to gain some motivation and tips!
So, below is my Alpha legion army where I’ve “completed” a little over 4000 points worth of models. Speech marks because I still need to do one or two minor things.
So, as aforementioned, the couple of small things I need to do to what you see here is: firstly,
- Add OSL to my plasma squad, and my knight’s lance, as you can see the orange hand painted plasma didn’t come out to great, so I just need to go in there with my new airbrush and paint over it. I’m thinking green what do you think?
- I need to then add a few decals to my vindicator and the Cataphractii.
- Finally, and most obviously, I need to get that beautiful shield painted up and stuck to the Lancer. My close friend Shane did the sculpting on it, and I think we can all agree it’s pretty stunning. I’m very happy with it!
Other than those couple of little irritations, so far so good. Usually I’m not a fan of incomplete army showcases, but I think it was justified here because I’m wanting a bit of feedback before I decide to add the finishing touches.
So, next up is a bucket load of infantry, 10 tattaros termies followed by another 10 tactical marines, 20 assault marines, and a further two apothecaries.
My vision for the finished force is to have three 20 man squads of compulsory troops, so I can field the coils of the hydra rite of war, and fulfill my OCD of having fully sized squads! Beyond that target I naturally need to add Alpharius, Exodus and Skorr. The former two not having models yet before. Finally, I add a (presumptive) plastic thunderhawk! So yeah, I’m really hedging my bets with that last one, but I stand by my previous prediction. Let’s just hope I don’t have to eat my words!
Finally, I’d love to know what you’ve been working on, or if you have any feedback for me, or would like to discuss any other business?
