The First Legion, so noble and gallant! Very well-represented here, great work! You really captured the colors of their characteristic dark forest-green and brilliant tarnished gold well, along with the Lion's yellow-gold locks and widow's peak.
This has been retconned a few times, with different reasons and timing given for the color change. One of the explanations is that during Luther's betrayal on Caliban, the loyalists painted their armor green to distinguish themselves from the Fallen. One is that Green are Caliban recruits and Black from Terra. Etc, etc. Either way, decided to go with the green version for this one
