Your legion looks amazing!

Can you share your recipe for your black power armor? I have a row of failed black templar marines that I have been trying to achieve this look on for about two months.

Is it a silver metallic base paint with a black wash airbrushed on?


Thanks alot brother! Happy to hear that!

No, its another recepie, after this, youll pumping out Black Templars in no time 😊

- Prime black, and do an even coverage with like Abaddon black or vallejo black (my favorite)

- make a ”wash” by mixing around 3 parts lahmian medium and 1 part leadbelcher (some experiment may be required here)

- wash all model and let dry

- wash whole model with agrax earthshade, let dry.

- use waywatchers green to build up some green tinted areas on random parts of the marine

- paint all metallic bits like cabling and such in your preffered metallic colour

- wash whole model with nuln oil

- armour done! 😀 Hard to fail - great results

I think your Marine skin would fit for a Servitor, could you please tell how you do it?

I work a crazy I.T. job and have a four month old.  Hobby time is at a premium.  I should have some time off at the end of this week.  I am excited to try the technique and thank you again for sharing it with me.

For a servitor!? Its the Iron X you are talking about 😀

Its quite simple: administratum Grey -> nuln oil wash -> drybrush of a lighter grey

Great work! I love the dingy iron look.

 

What is your recipe for achieving the dusty red bases?

Thanks alot brother!

I use a 3 mm cork sheet to make some rubble/stone-ish base. Spray black then drybrush mechanicum grey->administratum grey.

Glue mini on and then apply Iron rust-coloured pigment powder on base and lower legs of the marine :)

Excellent work. I especially like the Breachers and that Leviathan Siege Dreadnought.

More breachers. I need more breachers. In my last game 40k, 5 veterans w stormshields and chainswords held 5 Deathshroud terminators for 3 turns and subsequently forced typhus to join in, just as planned 😉

I had a servitor-like approach to painting tonight; efficient and focused. Managed to move ahead far with 5 breachers and a contemptor Mortis.

Stressed together the last part of my army which will see battle tomorrow. 2 rapiers, an intercessorsquad and 6 aggressors. They will be joining a leviathan dread, deredo dread, 2 vindicators, amongst others, against the foul and twisted Dark eldar.

A fine army. May Manus and the Emperor bless your dice rolls, granting you the power to purge the traitors with the fires of your righteous anger and hatred.

Iron Tenth destroyed the Death Guard and crushed typhus under the threads of tanks and the pistondriven legs of Dreadnoughts. 11-9 in VPs.

My most important units:

- the deredo and the hvy bolter-rapiers; they dominated their part of the battlefield with walls of fire.
- Leviathan Dreadnought as always
- intercessorsquad, took enormous amounts of smallarms-fire and a charge by typhus and still lived.

Dissapointing units/units i failed to use in a good manner:

- vindicators, even tho one killed typhus i think theyre too inreliable, 1d6 shots...three times i rolled ”1”.
- agrressors, failed to position them correctly, shot once killing 3 terminators.

Some scenes from the battle:

How did I miss this topic? The black is great, muted as befitting of the IH and the dusty bases and weathering helps round it off. It's not often you see a 30k Iron Hands force so all the better for it :tu:

Good job on the Iron Father. Is he also a Techmarine? (The Clan Raukaan Codex supplement suggests Chaplains, Librarians, and Apothecaries can also become Iron Fathers- it's no longer a Techmarine-Chaplain hybrid.) What's his name?
