Time running short. As said I'm aim to paint what ever left in my Iron Warriors 1500pts force for the 25th Feb as part of my local GW
store painting pledge. As said in past update, from time to time I replace a few models due to new idea, trying to make the army that bit cooler & that what happen since the last update.......
How else will I know if a idea will work or not
First up, I mange to get the Iron Warrior from the last update with the Raven Wing trophie. He now fully painted
I went for gold on the Chaos star on the face plate. Just the other T face bezerker helmet I have, before trying out this idea. They all have silvier to show battle damnge & just to help with the yellow/black/to show the T face area of the helmet. So went for Gold on this model so he would stand out from those who have battle damnge. Other wise they will clash & when people are check out the army, they will not notice/think all T face helmet in the army are the same if this make sence.
One of the new replcment, I mange to get a few more Forge World Red Scorpain (sp?) Honour Guard helmets, they fit in really well with the Iron Warriors look
Then another who make use of the FW helmets
I also found a Iron Hands bionic leg left over from a past conversion. Though it would be good to try convert the Chaos leg with some of the bionics bits
Then another Iron Warrior who useing the liquied green stuff on the T face plate on the helmet. Also a friend was recently asking me about 40k tournament & he remind me that I needed to add few White Scar helmets base on his army from back when we use to battle in 2005.
The base are brand new. Just the orignaly once, the dead Black Templars did not look right in my view. So re-base the two Terminators & preffer how these base have turn out.
Also I mange to finish the Terminator unir a few days ago while in my local GW
I really like useing the GW
turft grass. It best to use super glue on these & then varnish the model. Just it help the turft, just from the glue & then the varnish drying. Also like useing the GW
water effect on the base, just shame they are no longer sold in store?
Here my Object marker
Happy how they turn out. I'll need to tidy up the Templar icon on the shoulder pads in the future, also would not mind adding a bit more to them, useing codex Armageddon for idea's.
I've also recently replace one of the Rhino hatch (squad 2) due to feeling the icon was a bit off & because I found a really cool Chaos Icon I wanted to use
To save time, I save the image & then scale it down to the right size to fit onto the Rhino hatch. When it come to make icon. Some are drawn from scratch, all the size mark out, etc... But some time if there a temp, it worth useing this. As said there I use a Chaos star icon I found & this help save time scale it down to the right size for the hatch. Just use double side tape to tack the paper onto the plasticard
Happy how this turn out & that I never use a ruler once, all cutting was done by eye follow the image on the paper. Though when cutting with plasticard, more so someone useing plasticard for the first time. I highly suggest useing a flat metal ruler when cutting.
Space Wolves - I'm adding a few models to my Space Wolves. The undercaoted model is going to be a new Wolf Guard Battle leader. The Wolf Priest is there purely to try copy the image on his shoulder pad onto the Wolf Guard. Belive I have over 3000pts fully painted of Space Wolves, only this Wolf Guard Battle Leader is not painted up.
Iron Warriors - So over the next few days during my own hobby time I will be busy getting these Iron Warrior finish for this weekend. I'll be aim to get another army photo on the Sat 3rd of March, with units by unit photo.
As for the 250pts, that slow getting done. Just gather some bits. I should hopeful have a update showing the 5x Chaos Marine unit. While the Obliterators I'll need to wait & try get a mail order place to get Bile backpack.
I've also bought a box of Dark Angels a few days ago which I'm aim to make into Fallen Angels. After all the Bile backpack also come with 4x Cypher backpack, be a shame not to use them & just somthing to paint more than anything else & to plan out my future Fallen Angels force (new "rumour" codex chaos permitting?)
Also the Iron Warriors 5th Grand Company saw battle against Orks on Thur. Ended in a draw as the game went onto turn 7, 5 object. Belive there was only 4 Orks left alive out of 60, while I only had a 10 man Chaos unit hold a object. Had a Rhino contesting the Ork object unit it went onto turn 7 doh!
Should be battle Daemons soon, been a while (ToS July 2011) since I fought Daemons.
