As mentioned recently, I’m soon to be attending a tournament with my Alpha Legion, and so I’ve been doing a bit of tweaking to existing models to get them ready for the event. First up, the Dark Disciples that will follow the Dark Apostle around. Currently I use some of the Chosen minis from the old Dark Vengeance box for many of my characters, including the cloak/mace guy as the Dark Apostle. I’m happy enough with this, he looks the part, but he didn’t have any little chaos choir boys with him, so when I used them I picked a couple of Cultist champions that I wasn’t using. I think standing next to the Apostle has spread the touch of chaos to them a bit…
As you can see they have both received some significant mutations, and are carrying some extra unholy texts, candles and whatnot. I think this does the trick, they definitely look like they have sacrificed much in following the chaos powers.
Next, I had a look at my two Hellforged Contemptor Dreadnoughts. They are the plastic ones, so a bit basic, but they had already been converted up to be swiveling at the hip for a bit more movement, and to have a scaled breastplate to be a bit chaos-y. Their old loadout of multi-melta and power fist wasn’t really cutting it though, so I decided to attack them with magnets.
So there you go. Turns out my first hobby project of 2020 was actually updating the Alpha Legion. They just snuck in their unannounced and got it done. Very appropriate.
