    Well, I to am feeling like a dumb @$$ right now too. I didn't bother to get out my old White Dwarf with the Alpha Legion Index Astartes until after doing the blue. What do I see but that Alpha Legion were purple pre-heresy! At first I thought, "no problem, a couple of purple washes will fix that," since I usually do a purple wash on blue anyway. No such luck.

    So, here's my beautiful post-heresy legionnaire ready for chapter and squad markings!



    I guess I'll pick up another CC marine from the LGS tonight. I feel like such an idiot.

    Looks great Khavor. Even if it isn't purple or grey, or greyish purple... Or purplish grey.

    Yeah..that's a bit too blue...I don't like the purple and green on the fig in Cassar's link, but the deep dark violet of the Index Astartes is excellent.

    Yep, double checked by cracking open my copy of Legion and reading a couple of descriptions of their armor. Described as a rich purple color. Oh well, now I have a chance to use one of my all time favorite oooold GW colors that I seldom find a place for - Nauseating Blue! (plus I bought some P3 Beaten Purple while I was picking up a new marine).

    And don't worry about the blue guy! I'll certainly find a use for him somewhere. Perhaps an Alpha Legion squad for my CSM army?

    You can still get these CC marines at your LGS?!
    I can't even get the new ones!
    I have to take an hour drive north to the closest GW store, or I have to place the order at my LGS.
    GW's independent retailer policies make it too expensive for my LGS to keep them in stock.

    Glad to help out! Even as a cautionary tale to tell:
    "Let this be a warnin' to ye. Read your Index Astartes BEFORE you start!"

    And yeah, our LGS has a used bin for trade-ins. I'd noticed there were a few CC marines in there last week in case I screwed something up (which I promptly did).

    hey guys,

    Is there a link to photos of the pre-heresy color schemes? I am not familiar with fluff at all . . .

    Also Jester and I were talking about the charity the money should go to and I made a suggestion. He recommended I post it in the forums . . . is this the thread to do it?

    Don't worry Pre Heresy Ultra smurfs didn't change to present at all. Just paint a normal smurf as you would. Now get back to work, slacker!

    Minus the gold on the Ultrasmurf...they were much more blue, everywhere...maybe go for a darker blue trim on the shoulder pads instead of white or gold.
    And there are links posted somewhere....
