    And my bane, destroyer of enthusiasm (And sadly necessary troops choice), my Scouts...




    I need to decide where thier camo is going, and sort the balck, and finish highlights... Gah, now they seem even less done than before...

    I cheered myself up by doing a conversion for Captain Fortronus from bell of Lost Souls HH Campaign pack (Which is awesome btw).

    Nice poses, I always liked the alpha legion. I like the guy with twin BP too (I have a few CSMs like that).

    btw, how is your username pronounced? Is it no-surrender or nose-render? Or both?

    Cheers guys The terminators shoulders are dreadnought shins, specifically the ton of DA ones i ended up with after building my Ravenwing.

    It was originally nose-render, no surrender was a happy cooincidence ill endorse

    Re: Noserendas Pre Heresy Alpha Legion

    The Alphas are coming together very nicely, Noserenda – that's a really nice rich blue you've got there, and the modelling of the force makes them hang together nicely.

    Any particular plans for the force in terms of expansion and eventual size?

    ...and since this is an Alpha Legion log, I thought I'd kick off your obligatory Spartacus moment:

    Hey, just spotted you're in Southampton – which reminds me; did that gaming area idea ever get off the ground? It'd be fun for my gaming group (the PCRC) to meet some new cats.

    ...and on a similar note, the Tempus Fugitives are holding a big ol' Pre-Heresy campaign weekend next year. Would you be interested in coming along with the Alpha Legion? It's in May 2009, so it'd be a good incentive to get the force done. Since you're in Southampton, I'm sure the PCRC would be more than happy to have you along when we meet up for painting/gaming.

    Cool thanks for the color thing, its always a thing with the Alphas, Purple or Blue The Force is currently hanging around 2k Points in the old codex with quite a lot of Additions and more planned!

    Since this last update ive built and Undercoated a Rhino Based Assault Squad and a Mounted Veteran (Now Vanguard i guess) squad, a pair of Predators and ive finally finished those thrice cursed Scouts! (Who now have wood elf heads ftw). With the Command Squad now painted (Although im sure i botched the blue after the long gap ) and the Devvy squad half done...

    Needless to say my camera monkey needs a whipping More updates soon!

    Cool beans, the gaming room is in a nearly finished State needing Electrician-ing to open legally but im up for games when possible! The Tempus Fugitives campaign is exactly whats inspired me to dig the guys out again after Pete Mason mentioned it, so im planning whacking the force up to 3k in some capacity!

    Re: Noserendas Pre Heresy Alpha Legion

    Aha! With the stars in alignment ive managed to snag a camera and an internet ready PC! Which means another piccy session rather than dull theory!

    Firstly a workspace shop, although this is actually the fourth house ive been working on these guys in (!) and by far the worst work area (I miss the massive metal desk just under a window i had a while back)


    And some crap shots of the (Now) vangaurd Squad and Second assault Squad, both also have Rhinos but they were down my shop looking threatening near the blood bowl pitches.

    Vangaurds

    Ive gone for a brutal assault/breach look, lots of Chainaxes and Mk2/3 for extra close in protection. Although you really cant see much due to my crap camera skills and black undercoat! Luckily it seems the new codex will afect this squad the least, although they may pick up some new members from less legal outfits.

    Assault 2

    Another earlier armour squad, this time in mroe uniform armour as they are less old school. This squad is probably going to be wibbled a bit due to new codex attack. Cursed 10 man fetish!

    And on a Vehiclular Note...

    My predator turrets, the rest of them is with the Rhinos, but for some reason I have the turrets to hand... The are fitted with Autocannon Turrets and Las Sponsons for Anti Tank/Heavy Infantry Duty and both have HK's to assist with that. No anhiliators pre Heresy!

    Re: Noserendas Pre Heresy Alpha Legion

    Continuing, as glimpsed in the above Wokspace shot I now have 2 Troops and an HQ painted...




    Couldnt decide which shot was blurier!

    First up the scouts, which caused me no end of "Painters Block" and made me shelve the whole project for a while with their annoying-ness. Needless to say no more scouts! In the army these represent a unit of Operatives supporting the Legion rather than new recruits. Because I hate the standard Scouts heads (A Key factor in the slow painting) I ripped them off and replaced them with Wood Elf hoods and an old Middenheimer beard.


    Heres a Shot of the cloaks, i danced around dozens of schemes before going for the Drab drape look, the army will eventually be desert based in this scheme so they blend better.

    Re: Noserendas Pre Heresy Alpha Legion

    Scout Closeups (Damn i suck at cameras, ill use camera monkey again next time)

    On the Left we have the Sergeant, whose meant to be ditching the rifle to get some righteous chainsword-ing on. And one of the snipers, whose looking up to see what the commotion is.


    The first two are both shooting, one standing one crouching, all very simple. The last is staring in satisfaction on some kill, and looking like the Sergeant to all and sundry!

    Next up is the command Squad which has two issues.1.Id left is so long i got the colours wrong (They are slightly too Ultra Blue to me) and 2. One of them is for the chop as the new book inexplicably limits their size to 5 men...

    I left out the Champion and Banner as they stike me as "Un Alpha Legion" although If I build a display base of some kind ill whack a banner on that, I just dont think they would bring it into the field with them.


    This is the Sergeant and Apothecary, both sporting Power fists after a regular opponent of mine frequently jumps dreadnoughts on this squad (Because his captain is a massive girl). I went partial white on the Medic to make him obvious as the model itself is just an old metal backpack and some newer parts added near the belt, again, im not sure the Alphas like everyone knowing who is who.

    Re: Noserendas Pre Heresy Alpha Legion


    The "Meat marines"! One of these will be farmed off to a Tactical squad, im thinking Grenade boy, as he actually has a bolter. On that note, none of this squad has their Right pads painted yet, until i replan the army and know which squad they end up in.


    And heres the melta guns, always serve me well as this quad smashes anything tough in the opposing force. Although their inflitrating days are over im considering coverting a proto-Razorback with twin Reapers, which sounds awesome in my head...


    Another shot of the Apocthecaries back, with some battle damage and another handpainted Shoulderpad, although im not sure hows its come out all together.

    Now some a WIP shot of my devestators, who are now finished (Mostly) except again the Right shoulders pending reassignment. More shots on my photobucket but given their crap quality ill save my post count!

    In this you can see I work up from Storm blue to get the purple recesses/hints which puts me firmly on the indigo line.

    So yeah, thats the Progress so far I now have in total:

    Commander*
    6 man Command Squad*
    Commander Fortronus/BOLS Special Character
    5 Man Terminator Squad (Need more, or to swap out one of their 2 Reapers)
    6 Man Tactical Squad w/2 Plasmas* (Gonna be the basis of 2 squads)
    5 Man Scout/Operative Squad w/Snipers*
    7 Man Assault Squad w/Jump packs +2 Flamers (need more old skool jump packs!)
    8 Man Assault Squad In rhino
    8 Man Vangaurd Squad in Rhino
    7 Man Devestator Squad w/Missile Launchers
    2 Predator Destructors w/Lascannons

    Which has Previously been about 2000 Points with some fiddling and gear.

    Now, with a new codex im needing to reorganise the army and I need it up to 3k Apocalypse size for a campaign event in May i hope to attend, with that in mind im considering adding the following...

    Another Tactical Squad
    Modified Reaper Razorback
    Stenguard, Now Shooty veterans are plausible, i like the feel of them...
    Drop Pods, Attack from ALL angles!
    Aircover, I like lightnings but they arent PH, i also like Thunderbolds and Hellblades, depends if Hellblades are PH or not, so i need to see IA Update apparently. Either way itll be a pair of planes if my wallet allows!
    Fellblade, Big tanks are always a good idea... And Probably saves me money!

    Ofc Tempus Fugitives are liable to have one or more Special units for the Alphas, possibly even stealth squads or Somesuch...

    Gah, Decisions have to wait anyhow as im broke, but suggestions on the above are certainly appreciated!

    I like this army, it's cool

    Also, do your flamers do well burninating the countryside?
    Anyone can do whatever they want with their armies, it's how the user is which reflects on how good or bad the game is.

    Re: Noserendas Pre Heresy Alpha Legion

    Plenty of updates due to dogsitting giving me inordinate amounts of time

    Unfortunately it turns out for some reason I cant upload off the house line though But a text update will do for now for context anyway, especially as id typed most of it before trying to upload.

    Devestators finished, Assault squad 5/10 and Fortronus looking a little bluer

    I also got a hold of a copy of the New starter (Owning a retailer makes in insanely cheap) fobbing the Orks off on my partner ive got a new influx of Marine-age.

    Ive Mk 4-ised a bunch of Marines and the Dreadnought and the Captain has been mildly converted into First Captain Pech (You can never have enough captains). The Terminators are awaiting heads to take my force to 2 legal squads (Damn heavy weapon restrictions, 2 Reapers look badass). And one has been reborn as Stealth Sergeant Decimus from the Fugitves pack.

    At this point id like to shamelessly admit to stealing ideas off various members of Warseer, but i cant remember all the relevant names! When i can upload the pictures itll be clearer but id like to thank all the people ive robbed ideas off for the inspiration!

    New codex shenanigans have resulted in the below list o stuff:

    Alpha Legion Mk3 (Revenge of the Cabal)
    (Not including any campaign specific characters/stuff)

    Captain Mathias Trakker (The names a reference...) 140pts
    w/Relic Blade, Digital Weapons

    Command Squad Alpha 160pts
    w/2x Meltagun, Power Fist

    Tactical Squad Bravo (x10) 220pts
    w/Plasma Gun, Heavy Bolter, Power Fist, Plasma Pistol

    Tactical Squad Charlie (x10) 195pts
    w/Plasma Gun, Missile Launcher, Power Weapon

    Operative (Scout) Squad Zulu (x5) 90pts
    w/Sniper Rifles, Camo Cloaks

    Terminator Squad Delta (x10) 470pts
    w/2x Reapers/Assault Cannons 2x Chainfist

    Dreadnought Bayushi 105pts

    Assault Squad Echo (x10) 235pts
    w/2x Flamers, Power Fist

    Assault Squad Foxtrot (x10) 245pts
    w/2x Plasma Pistols, Power Fist
    No Jump Packs, Mounted in Rhino Foxtrot 35pts

    Vanguard Squad India (x6) 200pts
    w/Sgt Thunder Hammer, Power Weapon, Power Fist
    Mounted In Rhino India 35pts

    Devastator Squad Kilo (x7) 182pts
    w/4x Missile Launcher

    Predator Lima 130pts
    w/Lascannons, Hunter Killer

    Predator November 130pts
    w/Lascannons, Hunter Killer

    Total 2577 Points


    Planned additions currently are a pair of Razorbacks (One with Twin Reapers for sure) and a 6 man Sterngaurd squad, plus 5 Tacticals to go with Decimus. These will all be "stealthed" up in some way for Tempus Fugitives recon games. Ideas Welcomed! (As im at kinda a dead end-ish).

    Im also planning on an Alpharius/Omegon Model based on Apologists Truescale marines, should make him a tad bigger without being monstrous.

    PLUS! If anyone has a couple of Spare Original Ancient Metal Jump packs i need 3, damn lack of bitz service *grumble*
