Alpha Legion Glaive Superheavy tank. Painted using Forge World method detailed in previous posts :) #thehorusheresy #horusheresy #warhammer40k #alphalegion #coilsofthehydra #30k #spacemarines #superheavy #tankpainting #legionglaive
Final stages in painting Alpha Legion, Forge World method. After oil wash is dry i used dark and medium shades of brown lightly drybrushing the tracks and lower tank. Rust and Dark Dirt Kromlech weathering powders on tracks etc as well. Exhaust Smoke powder on gun barrels and engine. Sponged gunmetal paint sparingly over hull, and used a lead pencil to run along edges. Spray of matt varnish on tracks and guns to seal in powder. Finally, hand painted hydra icons etc in white, and lenses in usual fashion. Phew! #30k #alphalegion #coilsofthehydra #horusheresy #thehorusheresy #warhammer40k

Continuing with steps to paint Alpha Legion, Forge World scheme. With the turquoise done, give the whole model two full coats of gloss varnish to seal in the paint below. When dry, mix white spirit (solvent paint thinner) with black OIL PAINT (needs to be oil paint to flow correctly) 80/20 mix to the consistency of normal ink. Apply to all recesses, rivets and basically the whole model. Second pic is after oil wash. U can be messy here and just use q-tips (cotton buds) or a cloth to clean up if the ink spills over. Next up weathering... #alphalegion #warhammer40k #horusheresy #thehorusheresy #spacemarines  #coilsofthehydra #tankpainting #30k #oilwash

Next 4 steps to paint Alpha Legion, Forge World recipe. Using tamiya clear blue and clear green. 90/10 blue green mix heavily thinned, airbrushed all over. Then thin coat of blue airbrushed over lower section only. Then thin coat of green airbrushed over raised areas only. Then, 80/20 blue silver mix thinly airbrushed over very raised areas as highlight. And thats all the turquoise done! Next step shading... #alphalegion #coilsofthehydra #forgeworld #spacemarines #thehorusheresy #horusheresy #warhammer40k
