Well that went well. Above is the first test model for the colour scheme I mentioned back in a post in January (the delay is annoying but thanks to the car crash that has left me still unable to fully use my right hand without pain). This is the Army Painter Plate Steel with a single coat of Tamiya Clear Blue brushed over the top. I'm incredibly impressed with the outcome and finish, which is far nicer than the camera makes it look - it's actually very even but reacts to the light very nicely. Hoping to get some more done on him in the next week.
Next up is a very simple conversion I've made up for the Alpha Legion special sniper HQ - Exodus. It's a Forge World MKIV Recon guy, with the Dynat shoulder pad (see the guy above) and an Alpha Legion helmet. I think it will make him stand out enough, without being too prominent in the Alpha Legion style.
Next up is again a very slight conversion on the Betrayal At Calth Chaplain, into a functional substitute for a Saboteur (weapon swap and a melta bomb hidden under his cloak).
And finally the Betrayal At Calth Praetor, who I will use as a the Sergeant for the Lernean Terminator Squad - I felt the ornate nature of his gear made him suitable for a sergeant of a specialist Terminator unit. He could of course still be used as a Praetor or other HQ of some sort, but this is how I'm going to run him mostly I think.
All in all, I'm really glad to make some hobby progress. While it may not be much, it's the best I've been able to do for the last month or so. Hopefully after upcoming medical appointments I'll be able to do more, as I've a LOT to do before this army is complete.
