Title: Alpha Legion
Description: Plain armour?

Ok, so I've been looking at the Tartaros terminators, and thinking that (to me) they really don't fit with any of the armies I've currently got planned.

But then I thought 'what Legions have plain, unadorned armour?' - and the main one seems to be the Alpha Legion.

I think an AL army in all Mark 4 plate with Tartaros terminators (and all transfers for markings, with no raised sculpted iconography) would look pretty good. (I hasten to add that I'm not planning on doing this army any time soon, as I still have so many other things to do! I'm just bouncing ideas around!).

What do you think?

Sounds sensible to me using Mark IV, Tartaros and Contemptors would give a nice cohesive look to the army as a whole.

I think... that if you start another army before you've finished all of your current ones, I'm taking your credit card away.

1500pts minimum.

*wonders how many of my planned armies Shroud is aware of...*

Taking the credit card won't make any difference - you know I have a standing order ...on my soul! :lol:

I went with mostly plain MKIII and MKIV armor for my True Scale Pre-Heresy Alpha Legion:

And I'll be using Contemptors as my "counts as" Dreadnoughts for those games/gamers that don't allow FW rules.

Plus, with their bigger size, they fit in well with the rest of the force...

Ahh those look great, I love the shade of blue/purple (so mysterious even their colour can't be successfully labelled! :D )

And I'm sure I recognise them from elsewhere, don't suppose you are 'Alpharius' from DakkaDakka forum are you Legion XX?

Legion XX - April 7, 2012 12:07 PM (GMT)
That's me!

Someone else already had that name here when I joined up, so Legion XX it was for me on The Great Crusade.

It without a trace of irony or deception that I can say...

I am Alpharius! :)

I don't want to talk about that.... :rolleyes:
After all the trouble I went to, to get paint to match the Cover art of Legion.... <_<
