First up - So yesterday it was spotted that Codex Chaos was pretty soon. While it look like we don't have any new models quite yet. I'm happy ether way as the art work shown so far look great. Sadly it look like it will not be out on time for a event I'm going to in a few week time, the codex seem like it release the same day. But I'm really looking forward to this. So aim to get the limited ed Codex & standard codex, cards & also the Black Legion novel by ADB.
That the second Warsmith almost finish. I still need to add burn effect onto the combi melta, then Forge World soot weather powder. I've also to add a axe after talk with my friends who are running the RPG. So for that, I'm going to use the axe from the Age of Sigmar Wrathmonger & going to use the dead Primaris Marines from the Apothercary who release next week.
Really enjoyed converting the second Warsmith. So he going to join Warsmith Abhorred Riddick (Daemon prince) & Lord Narach in a game next weekend, as one of the friends who done the RPG thing created there Wolf Lord & want to get some more narrative added to there army & more so with the current Fate of Konor.
5th Grand Company
Follow on from last update, here the rest of my Heavy Support units & since I've already show the Raptors my other fast attack chose. Then just a few other units for this update.
Havoc squad - Still add name
This is my more recent unit of Havocs that I built early in the year for the Warhammer World event The Boralis Schism campaign weekend. Also with Traitor Legion allow Iron Warriors Havocs unit the Tank Hunter Skill.
Just got a box of Chaos Marines for Christmas along side a Rhino. The unit I orignaly wanted to build, I ended up using parts toward my Rapier Artilliary seen in the update before this.
Since then, this unit has became a core part of my army list since then. Thanks to 8th ed, it made it even better since they can move & fire with just -1 to hit.
Then there Rhino, again had the box since Christmas. Got it made just before the 8th ed release.
Havoc Squad - Still add name
This unit was build last year. I think I may have done them for the Call of Chaos. This unit came about because of the Dreadclaw model & like the idea that they'd drop in along side my Terminators & the Helbrute formation that allow them to deep strike.
Then the Dreadclaw transport for this unit. Ended up getting the Dreadclaw because of the Warhammer World Blood oath display with Daemonkin vs Ultramarines. Where the Chaos Marines made use of Dreadclaw heavy support. The display really cool & just the whole image of it all
You can find photos I've taken on the display over on my facebook page
Iron Havoc squad - Still add name
This unit was build in 2014. This was when the third Horus Heresy book was release from Forge World & it point out Iron Warriors had two elite units, the Siege Tyrants & the Iron Havocs.
This unit theme around them & also a big of design work that was seen that Games Day a long time ago, which shown a Devastator carry Assault Cannon & other heavy weapon like this.
As said theme to my models is really important & to have them tell the story & narrative for me.
Then the Iron Havocs transport. This was orignaly for another unit, but it fitted in more with the Iron Havoc.
Havoc squad - Still add name
This unit came about in 2015 for ETL, when codex Space Marines got update & release a all new updated Devastator squads. With things like the legs tie in with the 2nd ed era Space marines. They look cool & I wanted to convert them.
Went with Heavy Bolter as they just look cool
Havoc unit - Still add name
Added this unit of Havocs in 2012 during Call of Chaos. Just a few month after codex Chaos Space Marines where release for 6th ed & I was expanding the Iron Warriors. When it come to a army, I do tend to have a core list that I tend to use a lot, but I don't like been lock on just "1850pts" I want to add more cool models, swap squads about from game to game just because I've not use them in a while or use a game & event as deadline get them painted.
Havoc squad - Still add name
This unit of Havocs where built & painted same time as the above, 2012 & part of Call of Chaos. Champion was orignaly from another squad, but the models from them went else where. So he got promoted to led this unit of Havocs.
Biker squad - Still add name, led by Champion Dragoth
Adding this squad of Biker in 2014. This was just from seen a lot of cool biker units added to Chaos Marines. From Brother Heinrich, few other member on this forum & also events, Throne of Skulls March 2014 I saw a lot of really cool converted Chaos Biker units. Not just that, I'd just gotten my Ravenwing force finish, so beside a few spare models, was still in that mind set I wanted to get biker models built.
They also help get the limited ed Space marine model that Games Workshop where given with order.
I don't thin this squad is legal any more. I think it only 9 models in a unit. If this is the case, then I just need to convert up another Champion & get some Melta built so I can have two squads of 6.
Also point out, the Champion Dragoth has a Genestealer trophy painted by Dave from the 40k Addiction blog. Dave attended a lot of Throne of Skulls event same time as myself with a really cool Nids force. He heard about me & saw the trophy on my models. So though be cool to paint one up for me. I think he going to add a Iron Warrior helmet onto one of the Nids base, I think a Trygon.
But check out his blog, as there a lot of great hobby, battle report & check out the Throne of Skulls events he attended.
The Iron Circle
Don't care if/if not any rule use in 40k. My friends have said there more than happy for me to use the Horus Heresy rule for them if I wanted or use Helbrtue rules. I got the models as there cool, when I saw the preview for Warhammer Fest. I demand to two friends (well ask very polite) to get me two of them. Sadly they'd all sold out on the Saturday, but Forge World brought a lot more for the second day, they got the last few for me.
Third one I got near Christmas. On the 24th Dec I tend to go to my local Games Workshop store just get some space & painting............also so I'm not drag into tidy the house. So painted the third one during then, when in the past it general seem to be a Dreadnought I end up painting on 24th December.
But there are cool models & all Iron Warriors hobbiest should get them. I'd really like to get some more, I might get one more later in the year. There really fun to build as well.
While the lone Iron Warrior who leading them was built 2012. Brother Nihm done a topic ever now & then as a little hobby challenge. This one was to build & paint a Chaos Marine in one week. So got him done. He was meant for one of my first three squads, but other models took his place. So he now led the Iron Circle.
Kytan - Still add name
Pick up the Kytan last year during Throne of Skulls March. Pretty much, it was the Warhammer World Daemonkin vs Ultramarine display again & someone who attended Throne of Skulls had one in there Chaos Marine force.
Was gutted when I return home that the time to find out it had two left legs. But it a really nice model, really fun to paint.
So back in 2001 when I started my Iron Warriors & when Warsmith Abhorred Riddick was a Marine. I had a command squad, where Lord Narach was Champion that the time & my now Sorcerer was a Champion.
I also had a Fallen Angel model converted up using a limited ed model because it look cool. It was the one from the diorama with the Dark Angel, Ultramarine & Blood Angel putting up a flag.
Just I'd always like the Fallen Angels. Back then, one of the veteran hobbiest that the time had a great full converted Fallen Angels using the metal robe Dark Angels models & seem have a strong witch hunter type vibe to them. Then there also the Bloodquest comic, base on a exile group of Blood Angels battle in the Eye of Terror & they encounter a Fallen Angel who turn out to be a warlord of a Tezeentch warband on the planet.
As said few post already. One my aims, as well as add cool new models. Was also to bring back old Character. Sadly no model done the Fallen any justice if I wanted to bring him back.
That was until the Dark Angels codex got updated & with that, the plastic Chaplain model. Beside been a really great model & fun to paint, it was perfect for what I wanted. He was a ETL entry, using a Black Legion lord rules & relics from the Black Legion supplement.
So the Fallen I'm collecting are part of his Warband, along side Cypher.
Fate of Konor
Just had my first game for Fate of Konor a few days ago. Didn't go to well, but doesn't matter, it was a good game & against someone who started attending my gaming club just a few month ago & gotten into 40k. So was just making the game fun for them just as much as it would be for me.
My next game is next week as said above where I will be using my new Warsmith & battle my friend who running a RPG.
Also how cool are the cards we get from our local store.
The box was from the Warhammer World The Boralis Schism campaign. We got them along with dice that would act as faith point - Pretty much to re-roll (can't re-roll a re-roll) just with the narrative. We also got mission all theme.
The box is really cool & I think I'm going add the Fate of Konor cards into this box as well.
Then here what I bought today.
As said I'm aim get the Warhammer World Tank set. I want to convert up a sort of Stor-Bezashk theme squad. So just gather part right now. I'm also going to use
