Hello.

i have decided to reform my Iron warriors army and thought i would share some ideas and plans for the summer so i can bring a well made competitive Iron Warriors army back to University afterwards.

So! to the Characters.

Grand Warsmith Ferrox Kreige

Grand Warsmith Ferrox Kreige has a fearsome reputation, a Terran born who changed his Terran name to Ferrox Kreige, an Olympian name. Kreige (a sergeant at the time of Perturabo's discovery) quickly rose in the ranks of the Iron Warriors immpressing his father with his steely determination and disregard of those who might hold him back. Kreige became Warsmith in the place of the failiure Warsmith Krendl and led his forces at the seige of Terra and has since banned religious dedication to chaos gods in favour of fighting for the destruction of mankinds shambling empire.

Since the failure of Horus' rebellion, Kreige has led a small sized force of Iron Warriors against citadels of all races contemplating what possible challenges could beat him after bringing the Emperor's own walls down. Kreige's exploits in carrying the Legions traditional style of warfare to great sucess and swelling of Legionnaires under his command has caused the Primarch to once again be interested in Kreige's abillities. Peturabo has sent one of his most logical and successful commanders to bring Kreige back under the Primarch's gaze, an act that appears to have been unusually well received by Kreige.


Iron Champion Flussigkeit

Posted Image

Jared Flussigkeit has been second in command to Kreige for the past century, a century that has driven Flussigkeit to a bizarre unknown diety. The Iron Champion as he is known to the legionaires 11th company has struck a deal with an ancient unknown god for power and to become ultimate embodiment of his legion to impress his Primarch and gain control of the company. This deal left Flussigkeit more of an Iron Warrior that he could ever have been...

Flussigkeit literally became an Iron Warrior, An Astartes made of an unknown liquid metal contained within power armour. He found to his delight that his power increased dramatically and that his could send gouts of molten metal from his hands. Rumour in the company is that a deal was struck with a Necrontyr lord and that his presence is no longer of human origin. Recognising Flussigkeit's new power Kreige awarded Flussigkeit with an ancient weapon from mankinds infancy in the void, a staff with a blade of roaring plasma flame. whether this gift was given in respect or fear is left unanswered.



Ganimach, The Device, Commander of Perturabo's Assault Forces and envoy of alligience to Ferrox Kreige


Posted Image

Greyall has kindly allowed me to use this character in my army and it is this peice of art that inspired me to re-make my Iron Warriors, his thread of artwork can be found on the following link allow with Fluff for this character.

http://www.bolterand...p...0161&st=150

Ganimach has been almost completely accepted by Kreige (but not by many legionaires under his command) after the 'untimely death' of 11th companys assault captain, Ganimach has assumed control of close quarters assault forces in the 11th after orders from Peturabo to bring Kreige back under control and back into the other forces directly commanded by the Primarch.

It remains to be seen whether Ganimach is present to take the 11th by force or whether he has convinced Kreige to return to the Peturabo for orders.


that is the fluffy part of the post for now, each squad champion with have his own backstory once i have made them.

C&C is welcomed for the development of my characters or any advice would be appreciated.

thanks

SB

This is going to be good! :)
Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf

You do know that Flussigkeit means nothing but "a liquid". I know it works with the fluff you have but anyone who knows a little german will find it more funny than anything else.

Great conversions as always, though. I'm really looking forward to what you come up with for Greyall's artwork.

There something off about Flussigkeit leg pose. Almost like he's about to take a squatting position. Maybe if I could see some more pics from different angles, might be an illusion of sorts.


Ganimach is going to look awesome! Can't wait to see him finished! :)

Flusgeit is freaking awesome! Seriously your modelling skills are off the chain right now! Only thing I would make different is make the chain blades on the obliteraptors arms a mm or two longer.

thanks Terminatorinhell

i see what you mean about the claws, i didn't want to make them look really long because the autocannon arm is already huge.

i have an update, my first 'plague marine', a champion with a powerfist and combiflamer.

Posted Image
Posted Image

i don't know whether i should make the whole squad using the doghouse gothic marine method or just to two champions, what do you guys think?

i also have an update on the Oblitoraptor (mostly his retinue)

he is now mounted on his base ready for me to mount the jump pack and have a third try at his face.

Posted Image

his retinue are being made, being in close quarters with someone with the Oblit Virus makes it very likely to spread...

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

so i thought i would model these guys just in the starting phases of the Oblit virus.

i also took a shot of my "best bitz" box, when i put all the cool looking bitz i am likely to use.

Posted Image

and after week home this is what i have done to my desk...

Posted Image

anyway, let me know what you think of the stuff and opinions on how i am doing to plague marine squad would be great

thanks

Awesome! I'd been hopping your Iron Warriors would make a come back. The new minis are looking great. The guitar wire is particularly good.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Hopefully we'll get a new codex soon and your army will grow even more ;)

Check out the E Tenebrae Lux challenge if you haven't already. These guys would be perfect for it.

outstanding work brother!

one thing on the oblitoraptor though. it looks like his right leg is going to be entangled in the base decoration, maybe you should place him a little more to the front of the base...

a new codex is a must, i hope we get legion traits!

i checked out the link and took the plunge, i have sworn Flussigkeit and Ganimach with his retinue to the cause!

It still lives!


it does indeed.

thanks, you are right about the leg, i dont know whether than is the picture or the model, i will take a closer look later.

Fantastic conversions!
