Some cracking weathering on those Fists, I think the force is going to look good with the contrasting elements of yellow and white.

@Gorgoff Thanks a lot man!

@Pearson73 thanks a lot bro! Yes I hope so! Since they will be fielded together the fists needed to look battered as well! The force will be some tactical squads, a breacher squad, 2 Contemptor and a leviathan :)

Solid weathering on the breacher, I like the inclusion of the Maltese Cross on the marine in the last update too.

Thanks alot brother!

Would you guys find it strange with an infantry-Heavy white scars list? With rhinos and droppods? Dont really have the funding to buy any jetbikes or speeders at the movement...

Some nice dirty looking metal there, the gold/brass stands out nicely whilst still retaining the muted tones of the scheme.

Thank you! Iron Hands has always been closest to my heart but ive never really painted an army, mostly due to the lack of focus on IH by GW in 40k.

But my interest in 30k gave me new motivation to paint an Iron Hands Army, and use all of my vehicles and Dreadnoughts in a fitting way.

Yesterday i got my hands on a burning of Prospero-box 🀘🏽 Those mk IIIs will be Iron Hands :)

So now i have my beloved white scars, beginning of these Iron Hands, a started imp Fists-Army and models for Raven Guard.

One of these armies need to be abandoned, but i have a hard time choosing which; i think either the Fists or Raven Guard. Which would you choose to abandon?

MKIII suits the Iron Tenth well, will you be adding in any bionics to characterise them? I think the yellow of the Fists complements your other forces well, so I would personally drop the Raven Guard, due to their similarity to the Xth in terms of colour; don't want to get bored painting two very similar schemes! Have you decided where the Tartaros armour will go, I think they would look good in yellow, maybe add some shields in there?

Cool looking bikes! Always love a beaky helm :)

 

Nice scenic bases too, contrasts nicely with the white.

Thank you! Yes i managed to do a green shine in various places which im happy with πŸ‘πŸ» I agree with you, i keep the Imperial Fists and discard Raven Guard. The Tartaros terminators will go to the Fists! Im thinking about ordering gorgon terminators from forgeworld and maybe some medusan immortals.

But my main-thought is that the Fists will have more infantry and Iron Hands more Dreadnoughts/tanks. I think that is fitting!

Cool looking bikes! Always love a beaky helm :)

Nice scenic bases too, contrasts nicely with the white.


Thanks alot! Im happy you like them πŸ˜€ i really struggle with the bikes, because i really dont like the models but i will finish my 10+ bikes in due time πŸ˜€

And of course you need a Proteus to port them around... And one squad surely needs friends to go along... msn-wink.gif

Is that chap to the right going to be a breacher, or just using the helm? Breacher helmets are such nice designs.

Yes! My troop-choice will be a 10-man breacher squad. Those other guys will be legion veterans. So he will be a breacher πŸ‘πŸ»

Honestly, I was always sad to see you squander your talent for White Scars on those Prim Arses :P

Thanks alot brother πŸ˜€ the white scars is still there! Im taking a little time to think where i want to take the scars. Either im going the bike-route, or infantry-route with terminators and jumpinfantry, im not really sure.

The thing is i have like 20 40k-bikes, and i just really dont like those models, no fun to paint etc. but since i have that many i cant bring myself to buy FW ones πŸ˜₯
