Hi

 

It all started with 2 friends and myself doing a 2015 tale of 3 gamers build with the aim of getting games with actual completed armies done. Just for fun and a way to motivate each other. Much dithering with lists, ideas, themes and now we are 6 weeks into 2015 with a PLAN!

 

The plan. Meetup and attend a tournament in January 2016. Have much fun and laughs and gain stories to tell around fires for many years to come. The event is 1650 a points level I have never played, which has made many a hair wrenching moment coming up with an armylist. But I do at leas have an IDEA!

 

Iron Warriors. 

 

I love the paranoid angry guys. Ever since I read Storm of Iron many years ago. For my first ever tournament I built a chaos space marine Iron Warriors force and that was awesome.

 

This time I want to go Heresy. I love the aesthetic of the forgeworld kits, the images from the CCG game and the overall feel that the IVth Legion has. Only problem is the army must be a 40k codex.... No problem I'll just use Codex: Space Marines! Some of the units won't be strictly heresy era but I don't care. I want it, it goes in the army.

 

For models I will be mixing Forgeworld with GW and other aftermarket parts and I currently plan on scratchbuilding part of if not all of the vehicles. Basic infantry will be based on 32mm bases because they look awesome.

 

First up Tactical squad I WIP

20150212_200431_zpscoiowjol.jpg

 

The legs are from Kromlech, heads from MaxMini and the torsos are standard tactical squad with any sign of a chest eagle taken off. I like the look so far reminds me very much of the artwork from collected visions.

I'm not trying to stop people taking Tactical Squads.  Far from it.  I'm actually genuinely wanting to find a situation where I'd be better using Tactical Squads rather than Scouts, because god-dammit, nobody plays Space Marines to use bloody Scouts!

They look like they are shaping up to become some awesome mins brother. Nice bits sourcing too, I may have to have a look around myself, thanks for the inspiration. And excellent choice of Legion.

They do like the stuff from Collected Visions when they hadn't nailed down all the details of the armor marks and such, and that's kinda awesome. Glory to the IV, brother.

Thank you guys

 

There are loads of extra parts to have a look through these days, many more than when I first ever thought about doing 30k. Bitz for da Bitz god!

 

Quick update. Got the metal recipe sorted.

Thanks.

For the metal I primed black then airbrushed Vallejo model air gun metal. Super easy to do by hand I just like playing with the airbrush.
wash first with nuln oil careful it doesn't pool. Then a thin wash of agrax earthshade.
drybrush lightly with gw leadbelcher or similar gun metal. Final drybrush of rune fang steel.

Super simple should keep my pace on schedule.

I'm starting to fall behind on this and the other two are doing some great stuff (links are in my signature)

 

So time for reinforcement! Last 5 guys of squad 1 built and primer drying as I type. Here they are on the spray stick

CameraZOOM-20150304140050307_zpswceeonx7

I'll get these to the same stage as the other 5 then add details.

 

Anyone up for a game of guess that bit?

Yes kromlech bionic legs. Really like the understated nature of the mechanical parts.

I tried some on a few models but I found the bionic ones sometimes made the models look like they had chicken legs. The standard ones look way better in my opinion. Also they look like the MK2 legs which are just the bee's kness

Liking it! Will have photos of my base-coated Death Company up this evening. Finding time is tough with working nearly sixty hours a week and having a wife at home I want to spend time with!

Looking forward to these guys being all metal!

A month! A whole month has gone by and I'm slipping already. The Tactical squad is done bar final details but with commissions and boredom they are still waiting. 

 

New Plan. Rather than sticking to my army list I'm just going to paint what I fancy and sort out a list later on. That way I can put all my effort into the short bursts of excitement I get. 

 

First up some cataphracti including a praetor. I was sorely tempted to give him a chainfist to be Forrix but I think I'll leave that for now because the base model is so cool. After a couple of hours work I have this.

A nice take on those power weapons with the use of green to white, like that a lot, great unit btw :)

 

If you wanted, you could easily straighten up that reaper cannon with some warm to hot water, you'd only need to dunk the barrel section so as to avoid the rest of the painted from being affected.

 Thanks. Yes I should really get on that but for now they can sit happily on display. I missed a lot of mould lines as well. 

 

All fired up from the terminators I returned to the tactical squad and finished them off. Again really happy with how these have turned out. Next plans are for a vehicle of some sort.

I started plasticarding my own deimos pattern rhino as I had the plastic rhino kit around. Broke down and ordered some forgeworld stuff after a couple of Sundays of fiddling about.

CameraZOOM-20150505184112609_zpsefacbjjc

Now I have the real thing I'm happier to finish off my own pattern and have it deviate from the official model more. Which should speed the process up.

CameraZOOM-20150505184904393_zpstxdszhaw

The greenstuff looks really rough. It isn't I've sanded it smooth. Still much work to be done.

I did think about it but with a few commissions on the go I'm going to give it a miss and just potter on anyway.

Bit more work on my own pattern rhino. Got many rivets done. I didn't think I had smaller rod than 1mm but found I did after I finished. That was annoying. But I'm liking the variety I have of rounded flat and recessed. Also did the door hinges and started on one of the engines.

Sunday is the day of Iron! Went with plan B for rhino engines. From a previous project I had a mould of the smaller engine from the sicaran and so I cast 4 up to use. I'm liking the variation it gives.

Painting started today one wash down and a few details picked out. Going to weather these quite a bit So reading up my fw masterclass books.

I wasn't happy with the way the wash had sat on the rhinos. Too many brush strokes. Went back and repeated the panels with vma gun metal to flatten them out. Then gave them a gloss varnish and added a few streaks with a brown oil paint and plenty of thinners.

The metallics look good, so does the green glow on the plasma gun. Any plans to put the iron warriors mask logo on the shoulders/somewhere on the rhino as well?
