Christmas has came & gone, hard to belive how these few days can be really busy. On the Iron Warriors, sadily I did not get much work on the Rhinos with the plasticard/styrene armour along with icon due to getting really bad headace.
However I mange to make up for this on work on other stuff for my IW. 24th Dec saw me buy the bulk of what I need for my conversion, also mange to get a single Obliterators painted.
While Christmas day it self saw me getting my finial unit, Chaos Battle force which give me enough models & bits for my third Chaos Marine unit in Rhino. Also got some finecast Raptors as I need there jump packs for my Daemon Prince/Warsmith.
Here the start of my third Rhino unit of Chaos Marines
WIP, they where painted in my local GW store a hour before I had to go & get my train. I want this third unit to be Combat heavy, like those in Storm of Iron where they are slow going to Khorne, but there not all out Bezerker like those of the World Eater. Like Death Company but with out the Black Rage if this make sence. So I'll be arm most with two close combat weapons being Chainsword & Chainaxe.
I'm also going to have a bit more blood on them, those who played Space Marine on PS3 or Xbox, that the sort of look after you slaughter a hoard of orks in the computer game.
This was the Obliterators I painted on the 24th Dec while in my local GW store to get some my own hobby time. I'm thinking of replace the right servo arm, just while painting him I drop the model, like wise my order arrive with the Bile backpack, think it'll look cooler.
My unit of Two Obliterators in my 1500pts list
The Obliterator on the left << has use the bottem part from my orignaly Obliterator I posted a while back
Just I was not to happy with the orignaly Obliterator as he was to much Terminator. While I am useing Terminators as the base of my Obliterators, I want them to still stand out a bit & not led to confusion during the game as it all to easy to make mistake during the heat of the moment like in a tournament.
So I took of the top part of the orignaly Obliterator & as seen above there, replace the top part complete, I wanted to keep the base & the legs as painting wise & well for the base a lot of work went into them.
So right now I am happy with the new Obliterators as well as the one I shown a few days ago. Just fitted the image I had in my mind when I was thinking about converting them & from the art work in codex 3.5 show of the Obliterators.
That it for now. Next update should be Sat.
My Iron Warriors have been arrange for there first game in a while, it will be this Sat in my local GW store. So right now I got to build between tomorrow & Fri
+ Warsmith - Add Raptor Jump Packs
+ 2nd Terminator unit - Get them all built up. I might hold of painting & add trophies until I seen the new Undead models which was leak on warseer during Christmas.
+ 7 (?) Chaos Space Marines - 1x Champion, 2x Autocannons, 1x Icon, 1x Melta & then 2x Chaos Space Marines
+ 1 Rhino - Hope to spend some point tomorrow painting the inside of the Rhino before build it.
+ Rhinos in general - Still need to get the plasticard done, see how time is. I've got a lot of idea for Crusifed Space Marines for my Rhinos. One going to be Emperor Champion from the Black Templars who'll be part of my 3rd/new unit of Chaos Marines I shown above. While Unit 1 the first Iron Warriors unit I shown, they will get a Ultramarine from the 4th Company, thinking of haveing the Ultramarine look like he surive a ord blast only to be gun down by the Iron Warriors as they'd advance into Imperial lines.
Also need to try get some Object Marker done. Thinking for the d3+2 mission, have Black Templars with Chaos Icons from each chaos god, like my Mk5 IW army from 2008 - 2009.
Then I'll need to get a Object marker for Capture & Control? one object each which will be a Iron Warrior carry the all might Iron Warriors 5th Grand Company banner.
So be a lot of phone taken & possible some from the game.

Hey IP question for you. What kit did you use for the spikes on this guy's helmet?
Spike can come from diffrent box sets
- Chaos Space Marines: In the box you get two spike with skulls on them. I tend to use them just cut to length you think would fit well?
- Warrior of Chaos: Just standard spike
- Space Marine Captain: Iron Halo
- Grey Knights: Ward Staff *Note* tend to use these for the shoulder pads only but could be use
The one in the photo you use is from the Chaos Marines. But these are the once I tend to use. If your useing Warrior of Chaos, make sure to file of the mold lines. Just I alway view Chaos as spike.
