Returning once again with a new Alpha Legion unit that I did for a club group project. This time we reach back to the Days of Ole when the Alpha Legion was taking part in the Great Crusade, I have put together a 5 man combat squad team of legionaries in the old Alpha Legion colors and logo. Since it's great crusade I thought anything went so instead of the usual codex marine heavy or assault weapons, I gave the squad a sniper rifle as its special weapon. Also the entire squad is armed to the teeth for rear enemy line long range infiltration. The theme of the squad is very much infiltrating, head hunting and causing chaos in the enemy's rear echelon. It was a challenge to free hand the alpha logo since I had never done it before, but once it was finished the whole squad came together real well. With the rumors of a new Chaos codex coming soon I might be returning to my Alpha roots sooner then later.....so be ready for the return of the Faithless!

One of the first things that appealed to me about this new codex was the new addition of Jet Fighters. A long time realm of Forge World, it was a surprise to see a true aerospace fighter in an army codex finally. I was sold and when the model came out and saw how cool it looked I was fired up to start this army finally. I started in this hobby build plastic jet model kits and I always like a good fighter in a game, hence my appeal to Aeronautica Imperialis. Now my Dark Eldar have some aerospace support to lead the speeder army into battle. This is only the wing man of the 2 fighter flight I plan on building for the army, the next one will be more detailed as they will be the flight leader.

Along with Drazhar I put together a squad of Incubi for the army. I needed some more close combat nastiness that I could mount on a venom, and this unit was an effective choice. In addition I have only 4 Incubi, so if Drazhar needs a ride on a venom he can join them and make the unit even more choppy

Let me start off with a recently finished HQ choice, Drazhar! Simply put he is a super ninja crazy character for any DE Army. His rules appealed to me, and I wanted to have at least one good close combat unit in the game besides all the shooting and venom's. I have already used him a few games of the new Zone Mortalis expansion and he is just a lot of fun to see him ninja anyone in his way. While I already have an Archon for an HQ choice this character allows me to use an HQ who can hold his own alone in a battle.

It's been a while since I posted anything about my Dark Eldar experiment but I haven't abandoned it just yet. In fact I have finished a few units in the last few months I plan to post pics of here. I now have a fully painted legal army and I'm working on a few more items in the future as well. So here is a little preview of what I have been up too with my new Dark Eldar army, The Starjammers!
