Well, IHs got nerfd, I'm out.

Fun fact, though: When I read about the nerf and saw internet awash with - possibly even justified?! - ridicule for people who had just painted their Ultramarines black, my first actual concern was to ask myself what this might mean for your extraordinary army -- very glad to hear you're hanging in there! Plus I can sympathise -- us World Eaters know a little something about being let down by GW ;)

 

Seriously, though: Please keep doing what you're doing! :)

Nah, never, bionics for life, keep on going till im more machine than man. Like the thread says, Ferrum Aeternum!


You're a man after my own heart. The hobby and the fun will always trump the rules, every single time. Besides, if you abandoned this army I'd have to find you and glue your face to your hobby desk.

The good news is that GW ebbs and flows with power. We've all experienced the highs and lows of GW rules writing.

Heheh, fair call Cryptix. Just felt like poking fun at all the stupid posts on FB I've seen wingeing this week about the FAQ. And Kraut, the army was never in danger. I don't even play, why the heck would I care about a silly thing like "rules" or "table legal" or "Codex compliant"?

 

May the Glorious Iron Tenth march for another ten thousand years!

A brief moment of silence for those of us who may actually have glued our faces (etc.) to our hobby-desks in the past due to ... prolongued periods at work For The Emperor. 

But seriously; great log, and some highly innovative use of the Primaris range to make really cool stuff; that often manages to feel a lot more 'true' to 40k in the older sense than some of the actual places GW's taken the range more recently. Well done.

Mate, there's a difference between us Chaos (Especially the World Eaters, Emperor's Children and Night Lords) players being let down by GW's rules writing team, and GW taking a bat to the knees of a super overpowered force laugh.png

 

Now.... PowerHungryMonkey, any more slick conversions to show off? laugh.png

I think you mean arrow...

 

Alas, no more hobby at the moment. I've got those Dev's sitting there all armless, headless and sad but I just can't work up the mental strength to start chopping into terminator arms to get the posing right. I'm kinda hoping I can magically scrounge 3-4 sets of Suppressor arms to make it easier but while they're still only available in Shadowspear I think that's a looooong shot.

 

I've also tried to catch up on a lot of shows I've not yet watched or half started and thus hobby has taken a back seat. When I finish this season of Mind Hunter, and The Boys and Altered Carbon and Sabrina, plus there's more Umbrella Academy out soon, and Haunting of Hill House and.... hmmm. TV = procrastination.

 

There will certainly be more to come, I've got a few Thallaxii still to build for my 'Intercessor' squad plus a funky sarge idea, may jump on them instead. Soon.

 

Cheers

Been very quiet on the hobby front recently, just a bit of a lack of mojo. But to live up to my word and prove I haven't dropped the Hands due to rule-related hobbling, here's a few pics:

 

gallery_115548_14900_594392.jpg

 

The Devastator Sarge has had a bit of work. He now sports a dashing neck ornament along with a backpack-mounted storm bolter.

The Techmarine has also had a little work just to bring him up to finished. Added the targeter to the Beamer and a the backpack wires. He now looks very much like my other Conversion Beamer Techmarine.

 

And just for funsies, here's all the Techmarines and Iron Fathers together:

 

gallery_115548_14900_582448.jpg

 

They're rather impressive altogether I feel.

 

As you can see, very little work done to the Iron Hands. Some of this is due to apathy, but mostly its coz my brain has finally thrown up and idea for another project that has stuck and really taken hold. Its all in the mental stage at the moment while I gather funds and bitz but lets just say its about as far from the IHs as you can go while still being an Imperial Space Marine. More when this develops.

 

I'm not dropping the bionic boys at all but progess will slow considerably while funds are being channeled elsewhere. Still plenty of ideas for these guys before they get paked in.

 

Cheers

Really digging the Devastator sergeant, the pose and various bits of equipment are spot on.

Looking great as always.

Any advice on sculpting cogs on top of the armor ?

Yeah, don't sculpt biggrin.png I've used flexible decals from Zinge Industries. They work a treat. I've been using them all over the place on these guys.

 

Thanks to both you and Pearson. Its comments like that that keep me sticking to this army despite all the shiny that comes out of GW each month.

 

In other news, Project "Not IHs" has had its first purchase. Gotta source some bitz but hopefully something new will be hitting the WIP forums soon.

Man, that group picture is really awesome! What a collection of mean cyborg dudes! ;)

 

I do have one nitpick, though, and one that rears its ugly head when looking at that group picture: Somehow the head on that Abaddon conversion seems a tad too small, like it's almost a bit lost within that massive body? I cannot help wondering whether something like the slightly bulkier rebreather head from the second guy from the left would maybe work better in combination with that massive body?!

 

Anyway, keep up the fantastic work! :)

Thanks Kraut.

 

I know what you're saying about the head. It is smaller than a marine head. Its off the Kataphron kits. Its such a great head but I've been loath to use it before because of its size. When I tried it on power armoured guys it looked seriously wrong. Funny thing is tho, when I tried a whole heap of other heads on the Abaddon body they all looked too big or just plain wrong. The only one that looked right was the one thats there. I don't get it but it felt right. The actual Abaddon head is pretty small too but the top-knot makes it look larger. I don't know if its the modifide chest plate on him my guy or what but nothing else worked. I think it also makes him look even larger and more hulking.
