Legion by darkchild130 Legion by darkchild130
Dagan, commander of cell 1138, Alpha Legionnaire.
His armour is a mixture of battlefield salvage and ad-hoc repairs. He wears a helmet in combat that is not shown here.
Drawn on iPad with procreate.

The ultimate fate of Cell 1138 is still unknown. The area which 1138 was holding, a Loading Bay turned into a killzone, was heavily bombarded by combined Basilisks and Venidcator Seige Tanks. 

Depected her is the 'leader' of Cell 1138, Dagan. Little is know of this Traitor Astarte however it is assumed he was in command as Vox traffic should the call sign 'Dagan' giving orders. However this could be a ruse.

Pics recovered from Dark Angels recon squad Torrance show Dagen lacking full plate. It is assumed his armor was made from other marks of armor.

Please post it so we can enjoy it too! I've read all the stories you posted over time and across different boards - always impressed by the blend of realism and grim dark 40kness they include!
How are those other operatives going BTW? ;)

"I am Alpharius."

Alpha Legionnaires are some of the coolest guys in the Wh40k universe. Half James Bond, half Chuck Norris, and half MacGyver.

Nope, but there is an "Alpharius" in his cell. He is not a true blood alpha legionnaire, rather a marine created using stolen gene seed who specialises in fighting space marines, exploiting weaknesses in the codex Astartes to cause maximum attrition.

Thankyou very much. As a soldier, I appreciate the fact that the Alpha Legion are the only marines that act remotely soldier like. I tried to get that across in the picture.

Barrett from Deus Ex: Human Revolution comes to mind. I really don't know why.

I can safely say that Barrett had absolutely no influence in this picture. Indeed, it is the first illustration I've ever done that involved no reference material at all. It took me a very long time to do :(

Thanks for the compliment. I am a huge fan of deus ex though so I may have subconsciously projected that into the illustration.

In a sense, it kind of fits - Deus Ex is loaded with conspiracy, and the Alpha Legion does a lot of work behind the scenes.

Excellent drawing Darkchild!I love the rag-tag appearance you gave him. He retains the mean, professional soldier look even though his gear is ad-hoc, wich is cool!
I must say the change to the boots and leg armor changes the "conventional" lines of the marine, enough to try it on a model and see how it looks.
Any chance of a helmet design soon?

darkchild130 Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for the comment. I plan to do a "helmet on" version after I've drawn all 4 cell members, so it will be some time away yet lol. The leg design is inspired by the old Dante miniature, I always preferred the contoured look over the classic space marine boot. The rest of the cell will look a bit more conventional, but all individuals in their own way.

So there is a whole cell planned! Well, the first member's promising, so I guess the other operators should be just as unique.

No pressure ;)

The asymmetric look,it gives a a sort of "special" feel to the character.

Well he is "special" in a certain way, I'm currently writing a story involving him and his cell. Need to post some of my writing up here at some point...

Thankyou, personally I view the Alpha Legion as incredibly practical and adaptive, so I figure in the 41st millennium their gear would consist of mainly scavenged imperial stuff.
