"that which we foolishly call truth,is only a small island in a vast sea of the unknown"

 

yup the heresy  has finally hooked me .after seeing the excellant work you guys created for the ETL ,i decided to step on the forgeworld train to financial ruination laugh.png

and for this journey i have decided after much deliberation to go the way of the word.

reason being1 i looooove the gal vorback models and already have erebus and kor pheron as a crimbo present.2 my first army for 40k was post heresy word bearers and it just feels poetic my jump to resin junky should go the same start as my plastic addiction .msn-wink.gif

so here are the first steps

The one thing I will say from bitter experience, is don't attempt to prep all of that in 1 go, it will rip your sanity apart

Simple. The Iron Warriors are a battered and dented vintage AK-47. Iron Hands are a modern factory fresh FN SCAR, with every piece of tech possible hooked to it. Both will kill you stone-dead, but one's a lot prettier while it's killin'.

Gal Vorbak are awesome!

Excellent work on the glowing letters too! Great touch! And your choice to go grey is commendable! Although you may want to use red too at places as to show the transition phase from grey to red. Regardless I'm really into this project! :woot:

And omg! How big are those gal vorbak! The to scale pic is phenomenal

And hopefully I will be getting an army together to match this lot haha

Well done mate
