Hello everybody, been a long time lurker here and after finally  biting the bullet I have decided to start my own WIP thread to hopefully kick myself into actually getting some models painted. I've never played a game and dabbled in painting 40K but after spending the last few years immersing myself in everything Horus Heresy related that Black Library and Forge World released, how could I say no to starting my own Legion force?
 
I initially wanted to paint up a Death Guard force but after starting I quickly realised painting white isn't my thing haha so I fell back to my second favourite Legion the brutal Iron IVth. Everybody on here has been a big inspiration for me so hopefully you will enjoy my slow but sure progress, Thanks!

Still a bit to go on my first marine but I think this is the general scheme I'll be going with, C&C welcome biggrin.png

Good on you for taking a leap of faith and joining the heresy, Iron Warriors are a personal favourite of mine so I'll be following with interest!

 

Also with a name like Dantioch can we expect a take on the loyalist IV Legion elements?

Cheers, no I'm focussing on the traitors just now but if FW decide to release a Dantioch model down the line you'll definitely see a Dantioch and Polux brofist kill team biggrin.png 

 

Still working on him just now as I browse all the new HH weekender photos and man do they look awesome so far! 

So here's another quick WIP photo of Thallax allies. Thanks again for the likes and comments everyone really appreciate it

And an idea on how I want my characters helmets to look, thoughts?

That helmet paint style is awesome! Also very unique.

Followed! Your stuff looks great. I've just started an Iron Warriors plog myself, so I'll be watching this for inspiration. How do you paint your iron? 

 

The hazard stripes are looking suave. Did you find it hard to get a smooth yellow? I often struggle to get my colours as smooth as some people here manage.

 

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Brother, I'll be sure to check your Iron warriorsbiggrin.png

For the Armour:I prime with chaos black spray then go over that with slightly thinned Leadbelcher until I have a solid coat. After that I go over all the Leadbelcher with Ironbreaker.

I then wash the whole thing with 2 coats of Nuln Oil to dull down the armour, I then apply Agrax Earthshade in places I think grease and dirt would accumulate. Yeah the yellow was a bit annoying at first but I just used several thin coats of Averland Sunset until I got a nice solid yellow, took quite a while though.

Hope this helps!

Sounds doable. I was planning much the same thing, but using Boltgun Metal and Mithril Silver. How many coats of thinned Leadbelcher do you do? 

 

Thanks for the quick reply. Don't forget to say hi, if you visit my plog. 

 

Keep up the good work.

The amount of coats will vary I just keep going until I get a nice solid colour with no black showing through smile.png

Very nice IW's! happy.png The half and half helm is my favourite part so far smile.png

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

Great mini, can't wait to see what the whole squad will look like!

 

The only constructive criticism I have is that you might want to add a bit of black or gold to his legs to break up all the silver.

Greetings brothers/sisters wont be able to get much painting done today due to uni work sad.png but I am working on some stuff just now that I should post later.

As the weekend moves on its seems less and less likely that we will see some Iron Warriors stuff at the weekender unfortunately, so I've decided to make a Forge World order later tonight and I want to order a vehicle of some kind( my first one) so what do you guys suggest?

I am steering towards a Spartan or Proteus at the minute though but that could change biggrin.png

Thanks, yeah the more I look at him the more I agree with you. Thinking of giving him some brass knee pads to match his shoulder pad rims and thanks for the suggestion it's great having people to give me constructive criticism hopefully it'll improve my minis and painting skill biggrin.png

Thanks again Operative!

Looking fabulous so far.... For a herectic;)

Cheers! Heretic? these Iron Warriors are still loyal though........to the true emperor Horus! haha

Personally I've never been a fan of the Proteus (something seems weird about its shape), but the choice is all yours.

 

Also seeing as it is your first forge world tank do you want to start off with something smaller? Although you might as well be painting something you love.

I actually really like that your Iron Warriors are pretty plain ornamentation wise. It fits in with their background that they had no need for such sentimentality and grandiose. I'd keep them spartan.

I'd go with a spartan... Go big or go home;). Also- Spartans can hold a 20 man squad plus character plus apothecary and the IW practiced an attrition style of warfare. 20+ dudes rolling out of a hard as iron LR sounds right up yer alley:)

So I made my FW order and ended up not getting a vehicle after doing some browsing and I think I'm perhaps not quite ready to tackle one of FW's bigger tanks but my order did include the parts of my planned Warsmith and a certain new chassis of dreadnought....and some other things that will be revealed when they arrive biggrin.png

 

But here's a little teaser of what I'm working on now

Looks interesting, I wonder if we can get a hint as to what dead legionary lies beneath his feet?

So I've not got much done today but this did arrive this morning biggrin.png

Tallarn_zpswlqsbuvz.jpg

 

Missed it when it first released so I'm looking forward to reading it and after having a quick look through it, it looks like Tallarn:Ironclad releases on the 20th Feburary. I'm thinking of painting the discarded helmet in Iron Hand colours, not sure yet though.

Should have the next Iron Warrior up here soon, Thanks!

I've always loved the cover of that novel, although I too have never bought it as I have a thing for not buying any format that doesn't fit in with my existing collection of paperbacks (I don't mind being a little OCD laugh.png).

 

Iron hands seems like an interesting choice of dead legionary, far better than the usual Imperial Fists I must say.

laugh.png Yeah the cover is awesome has occupied my desktop for a while now, even though it is just a helmet I kind of want to try FW's kind of spilled oil black scheme for the Iron hands
