[...] These look more like IW traitor guard in service to the IW to me - no less expandable than cultists, of course.


Do you mean expendable? Because they don't strike me as particularly stretchy. :P

I just realized the Fantastic Four are Chaos mutants.

I get that, though that's exactly the reason why they don't look like cultists to me. These look more like IW traitor guard in service to the IW to me - no less expandable than cultists, of course.

In any case, I am looking forward to what you are going to do with them!

 

Yeah looking forward to getting these, as I was looking at GSC initially. Cultist or traitor guard are definitely equally worthless flesh to IW, however the traitor guard would be sightly better in outcome in attrition calculations, assuming manpower and logistics being equal to both flesh types.

Traitor Guard are better at holding ground where even Conscript level training improves defensive positions by a marginal amount.

Or for psychological benefit when fighting other select Imperial forces. The moderate decrease in enemy morale at having to kill former comrades can be just enough to exploit a stalemate.

Traitor Guard should not be employed against forces of the Ordo Hereticus as enemy efficiency actually increases in those circumstances.

Cultists are best for mass assaults where losses mean nothing and beasts are unavailable.

Call me Indy. It's less syllables.

Colors question, what gold do you use for your Iron warriors ? 


I looked down the sights of my rifle, my target looked back. It's eyes were all the eyes I'd ever loved. They promised everything I could ever want. Love, comfort, safety. An end to this nightmare. I felt my will draining out of me, entranced by those eyes.

Well for me, super basic. Chaos black base, leadbelcher, hashut copper, heavy nuln oil wash then heavy argax wash (non gloss, though been thinking of changing to the gloss ones.). Thats just on the shoulder pad rims though, I am being less lazy with my brass, bronze and golds for my vehicles Linky in my sig, all my gold like this for my infantry.

Colors question, what gold do you use for your Iron warriors ? 

 

Me personally, usually base with Leadbelcher spray, then just put a layer of Balthazaar Gold down over the top. Gentle Agrax wash, and on occassion a Hashput Copper edge highlight if I'm feeling frisky


 

Probably heretical due to the Plague Zombie problem springing up in the 41st Millenium.

"Um...gathering tactical data."
"With a spork?"

That is what I was doing initially, it was just too bling in the end with my more muted overall colour scheme.

Fellow warsmiths I’ve built up a core of an Iron warriors force and was wondering what your thoughts are on how I should expand it!

Currently got around 1000 points, built and painted:

Winged DP with talons
5x csm, plasma gun
5x csm, plasma gun
5x csm, reaper CG
5x csm, reaper CG
Rhino
Rhino
Havocs, 2x LC, 1x ML, 1x AC
Havocs, 2x LC, 1x ML, 1x AC

Look forward to hearing your ideas, looking for a relatively competitive list but still thematic.

Cheers!

If you want to go traditional you could include a spear head of traitor guard with 3 bassies and a hq or personally I would add 1000 points of daemon engines

Hi Iron Warrior fans!

 

I really love the new Abaddon model and wanted to try mu hand at a conversion ever since it came out, so I build an Iron Warriors choas lord in terminator armour from it.

The pictures aren't the best as I took them with my phone, and I still need to put him on his base (I took a 60mm base as I think the base from Abaddon is a bit too big for a regular chaos lord.

 

Still, I hope you guys like him!

He's looking really good - the only part I'm not a fan of is the angle which he is holding the combi-weapon - if he held it straight so the bullets came straight down, IMHO it would look more natural.

 

Other than that minor, quibbling point, though - the conversion and the paint job are fantastic.
