Commission: Alpha Legion Rhino Horde

Work is wrapping up on the first set of vehicles for the Alpha Legion army. If you are going to Adepticon, you'll be able to see this army in person, as I believe it will be part of the team tournament. Next block of vehicles includes 2 more rhino chassis, 3 Chimeras and 2 land raiders. Maybe someday I'll be able to paint my own figs again...

Question to the community, does anyone have access to or suggestions on where I can find Alpha Legion transfer sets? These tanks are begging for some markings.

That's a nice paint job, and I like the color scheme! The blue in particular is very striking. What colors did you use for it?

@Mr. Tzeentchling, the colors are creatix airbrush paints. I actually created the blue by mixing some colors together to get the desired look. You can't buy it I am afraid...

Ah nuts. It's a really nice turquoisy blue regardless.

Really nice!
Alpha Legion transfer sheets? Freehand!
(I know you can do it! )

Those are great looking. These are probably the best alpha legion tanks I've seen.

The models look great!

I searched all over the internet for you, and all I could come up with are pre-heresy transfers, and the very old transfers that a few places are still selling. I wouldn't trust those old transfers though.

What I would do, since GWS and Forgeworld don't sell those transfers, is to send an email to GWS and Forgeworld with pics of what you have done so far. Ask them if they have a file that they can send you, so you can print out your own transfers. You might find someone there that's sympathetic to you. I am sure that their artists have a bunch of Alpha Legion stock art on file. Maybe one of their artists might even do it for you, for their own fun. It'd only take them a couple minutes to put something together for you. I know this form my graphic arts experience.

The Chaos Space Marine Transfer Sheet has a row of Alpha legion transfers on it, component number 99 51 01 02 002

I think that bitzbox sells transfer sheets cheaply.

Yeah these look pretty sweet. The blue and green blocks of colour, whilst pleasing, don't look as sweet as this blur of colour.

Well done. :)
