Thanks for the comment
Good to see this topic still alive and kicking. Hope all is well IP!
Great to see you posting again Iron Warrior w/Servo Arm. Last time I rememeber your just converted a Warsmith for your Iron Warriors for Call of Chaos useing the Miniatour model with Servo arm's?
Well - My Iron Warriors are my favorite army. Chaos is my favorite faction in the Games Workshop hobby. End of the day I'm not keen on sort of Eldar Warp Spider spam list or Screamer Council list, just don't find then enjoyable to game against & will refuse games against them. I just collect armies & add units I think I'll enjoy gaming, converting & painting more than anything else.
I particularly like the trophies on the vindicators, and especially the Knight ones.
Thanks Kierdale. I was really happy to gotten those Knight Trophy added, it somthing I've wanted to try add for past little while. Just Throne of Skulls March 2014 was first time I ever battle Knights. From what I rememeber
- Knight with the Blood Angels: It try charging (3 inch away) & failed, with my lone melta IW making the overwatch & cause 3 hull points. They re-try that during the following turn, again fail the charge & lossing a further two hull points from that lone melta arm IW.
- Knight with the Space Wolves: Just my Lord survive combat vs a Knight for four rounds as it kept fail it Strength D attacks, then any stomps where just the S6 Ap4 once, just came across like Forrix vs the Warhound titan in Storm of Iron Novel & that was brought up by my oppent as well.
Just spent the weekend that my local wargaming club yearly tournament. Aim for this year was to take Traitor Hate & just try out the formation as I've never really use them before. Originally I was also going to use the Vindicators in a allies detachment & have them in one squad, again wanting to use a new update & I've been wanting to add a third Vindicator to my Iron Warriors for a little while know we'd get Chaos tanks in squads in the near future. While I did enjoy useing the army during the weekend, I did miss useing 10 Chaos Marines squads, but it was really difficult to try get everything I wanted Unless it 3000pts
It was also nice not to see a single Eldar Warp Spider list kicking about. Just don't find that or Screamer Council Daemons any fun to game against & will flat out refuse games against.
But anyway - Here my force. My Iron Warriors got second best army which I'm really happy with. There was a lot of really cool armies on display & that what I prefer to see. The Nurgle Chaos army (see below) that won over all best army was really cool with all conversion & painting. Same with a Ravenwing force that got me thinking about trying find time to get my own Ravenwing force up to date as well as get some photos taken.
There also a really cool Tau army in white armour, inspired by the Games Workshop studio version, the person also have a really cool Khorne, Necrons & a few other armies in the past.
The third Daemon Prince incase of any boons. He was just painted from 11am - 8.30pm on the Friday before the event, with the Water Effect still drying on the Saturday as I just arrive to the event.
As said I wanted to try out formation & with Warband I knew I wanted to get my unit of Bikers. I want to try get more games with my Bike unit. Again while it really great & I really enjoy useing the unit, I was gutted not to be able to get a unit of 10 Bikers in the list. But as said I will get a 3000pt game arrange some point in the next few week or month.
Khârn - He wasn't part of the army list, just there to rep a object marker Re-painted the green parts since the model was last posted.
Again with the Warband formation it was nice take my Contemptor Dreadnought model. Really enjoy useing him in my games. Round 2 saw him survive against four turns of Plasma Cannons shots, combat vs 10 Sternguard (help with Oblits & Warpsmith), 2x units of Vanguards & a few Drop Pods, defending Object 1 in a Maelstorm mission where I had to hold that object that all cost.
Here the Nurgle Chaos army that won Best army overall which has a lot cool conversion & really nicely painted.
Black Legion Warpsmith
Chaos Lord on Bike, Warpsmith & Chaos Marines.
Daemon Prince for boon rolls.
Warp Talons & Obliterators & Combat Obliterators
Ravenwing force. Just all standard Ravenwing Bikers with there Grand Master? & Chaplain. This army started in 2002 & I belive they have a full Ravenwing company now. One unit allow about £200 worth of conversion with the older metal Dark Angels Robe models with Cypher converted up as the standard bearer.
Some photos my Marine oppent taken from our game. So my Helbrute was just around here defended it against all odds. While the Chapter Master try take on my Vindicator to the left with power fist........I made my 6+ Inv save thanks to Warpsmith been near by, I think you can maybe see bit of the Warpsmith to the right of the photo.
Bronn Tal becoming a Daemon Prince. All us useing Chaos Marines during the weekend had a thing going on with who ever got the most Daemon Prince where the chosen of chaos. The Nurgle army above got 6 Daemon Prince during the weekend, while I was second with 4 Daemon Prince, two in this game against Marines.
Lone Iron Warrior Biker in 6 round of close combat!!!!
So was a fun weekend. Next event the charity event ran by DWARF next month. I'm still waiting on a rule pack to be posted, just so I know what can & can not be take more than anything else. I might take the list I've just use that Rapid Fire there. Or I might change it, as I've got a Predator to complete for Call of Chaos & that could give me a deadline to get that done.
As well as painting all my Call of Chaos vows. I'm going to jump back to my Space Wolves force & finial get around to update them as they've waited for ever. So going to finial get around & order some Forge World doors for four transport I need for my Long Fangs & Blood Claws units.
