As I may be moving onto a new Chaos Marine army soon, I realised that I hadn't actually immortalised my current one here on the B&C yet.

The Champions are still armed as they were for 5th Edition. I just can't bear to break off those Power Fists. Instead they've been deactivated (count as Close Combat Weapons) for 6th edition.

They've also been gamed with, a lot, so there are a few "battle wounds", mainly broken spikes, which I just can't be bothered to fix. They are also (somewhat unsurprisingly) painted to my gaming standard from around 7 years ago, which is when I started them.

So here it is:

HQ:
IronWarriors-01-HQ_zps8ee85c2c.jpg

Khârn!!!!! (plus a few friends)

Troops:
IronWarriors-02-Troops_zps3ed7fdaf.jpg

Black Shoulder Pads = CSM, Green = Plague Marines, Pink = Noise Marines.

Elites:
IronWarriors-03-Elites01_zpsfafa8720.jpg

Special Weapon Chosen wub.png

Fast Attack:
IronWarriors-04-FA_zps384d5c48.jpg

Nurgle Bikes and my (actually brand new, finished it this morning) Heldrake with Baleflamer

Heavy Support:

IronWarriors-05-HS02_zps20ede94e.jpg
IronWarriors-05-HS03_zps9ac3d8bf.jpg

(The vehicle with the Vulkan Mega-bolter is largely an Apocalypse only vehicle, I created a Dataslate for it, but in regular games of 40k it either counts as another Predator Destructor or a Vindicator depending on what I feel like using).

Transports:

Gotta love the Havok-backs.

I've also got a Super-heavy, which I'll try to get photos of when I can work out how I'm going to fit it into frame for a decent photo.
 
Edit:
 
I recently decided to add one last little thing to this army... something fallen...
 
21b9467c-4478-45d2-bd0f-6e4af8f773d0_zps
 
Cypher and 3 units of Fallen (Chosen).  Yep, that's 10 Plasma Guns and 5 Meltaguns, all with Infiltrate and, so long as they're near Cypher, ATSKNF... drool.gif

Laterz...

*Palpatine voice* Impressive... most impressive...

 

 

Seriously man, this is a fantastic army - imaginative conversions, very much in character, great freehands and consistently top quality painting... Wow, just wow!!!

 

So what do you plan for your next army? Horus Heresy maybe?

Thanks all.

 

Cap - I'm severely tempted by either Alpha Legion or Word Bearers.  Both of which I could easily do in such a way that I could use them for either 30k or 40k.  That I'll probably use FW models is almost a given at this point.  I'm leaning more towards Alpha Legion as their rules look properly underhanded and fun, where the Word Bearer rules come across quite restrictive in a lot of ways.

 

I did slip back yesterday and "accidentally" bought myself a Maulerfiend to add to this motley crew of unrepentant traitors.  It also means I have some nice Ecto-plasma and Hades Autocannons sitting about screaming - "conversion" - to me.  It's hard to let go and move on... sweat.gif

Those are some really nice looking Iron Warriors. You should definitely put some of them into the IW showcase thread: http://www.bolterand...howcase-thread/ :)

 

What did you build your Havoc launchers from on your Rhinos, btw.?

This is an amazing army. Some of the best Iron warriors I've seen. I like the vulcan rhino! Its about the same cross sectional area as a hades-fiend, and could be a great stand in for friendly games.

Kythnos - The Havok Launchers are made from a Razorback turret mount, a Typhoon Missile Launcher (off the Ravenwing sprue) and a few other bits to give it a more chaotic appearance.

Fortnight - That's not a bad idea.

Oh, and thanks for the comments, appreciated.

Update in post #1:
 
Cypher and the Fallen
 
Cypher - Kitbashed, with a couple of simple conversions.
5 Fallen - 5 Meltaguns
5 Fallen - 5 Plasma Guns
5 Fallen - 5 Plasma Guns
 
Aside from a Maulerfiend (which I may get round to painting at some point) I suspect this is the last thing I'll add to this army... With 7th edition coming, something new may be required...

Stunning Fallen! Perturabo will lament that you're moving on to another army, but you might be forgiven if it's still Chaos ;-)
