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
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
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.
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.
