40K SHOWCASE: STUNNING Alpha Legion by

2 Minute Read
Jul 31 2014

I’ve seen a lot of amazing work on CSMs – but nothing like THIS!  WOW!

First off, let me talk about the painting.  Cerxis has a great take on the mottled blue-green Alpha Legion scheme that almost looks like it changes color from various angles.  I’ve seen a lot of painters try it to varying degrees of success, but it really shines here.

On the conversion side of things, I am blown away by the combination of the CSM, Dark Angel, and Space Marine bits.  The army does really feel like a mysterious shrouded force that could just pop out behind enemy lines and cause havoc among bumbling Imperial forces.  You get he feeling that a lot of the Dark Angels Fallen made their way into Alpharious’ ranks when you see this force.


Heck, you can barely even tell Cypher is in there, and that’s a good thing, because the rest of the army is so amazing.


You see Tartavos the Slaughterer

Go look, there are more pics and works in progress!
~Give it up to a fanatical hobbyist.  This is the type of mad-genius work that inspires us all!
