Hydra Dominatus

For the last few months I've been thinking heavily about my current chosen colour scheme.  I've not been sold on it at all.  Follow the link to refresh memories this is what it looks like.

So today I had a bit of time so I tried out something new. The model in the middle is my old test model, he's flanked by two new production models.  It's work pointing out, the transition between the blue and green is nowhere as intense as the pictures show.  What do you think?

Blast,  I haven't painted the skull on the right hand marines helmet.

This change has made me happy and I can now repaint the 15 marines I had in progress.  I will probably let the test model, maybe he's Alpharius???

The astute amongst you will notice the red box.  It's part of my swag from the Horus Heresy Weekender.  More on that for a later post.

The long hobby war contiunes...


  1. Like the new scheme, I've just done a test model for my Alpha Legion the same colour!

  2. Same thing here. I did one test model and thought it fine. A couple of weeks later did another with a more metallic finish and that was fine too. So many choices. This are great though.

  3. @ GunGrave, look forward to seeing the post!

    @ Captain Agrippa, thanks for stopping by. that's why I tend to sleep on test miniatures, usually indefinatley it has to be said. The colour is a bit deeper than I would have liked, but sod doing twenty thin layers like forgeworld do :) I'm a happy chappy.
