So I got the "Know no Fear" starter set, and I had this vision that I should do the Plague marines as that they came from the Iron Warriors chapter. I am wondering what else I should do to with them, and just to be clear, I am not going to do hazard stripes, as I suck at free handing.

1. Do they look like they are IW and not DG?

2. The lords smoke is grey atm, but should I go a more sickly green?

3. The lords cloak is red atm, but I am thinking go another colour, if so what should be good colour

4. Shall I rustyfie them even more or can they get to busy.

They are in no way done, there is quite a lot of work to be done, I can see some errors and such which will be cleaned up, the lords stomach ache is not done and so are not the squished nurglings under his foot..

What a nice idea! The marine on the left is already well tied to the Iron Warriors by the colours of his shoulder pad. The other two are still missing similarly clear visual markers, imho. But they are in a good way!

First I read the title as "Iron Warriors with a flute" and was a bit perplexed... :) 

 

 

So far so good imho, though they need more of the IW "prime colours" metal, gold and black. Also...hazard stripes!

I think they work well as Iron Warriors, yeah :)

Even if you don't want to attempt the Hazard Stripes, I'd go with a couple of sections in yellow anyway.

I'm not sure if the red cape works on the whole - perhaps yellow, or a browny-green?

Tamiya masking tape could make hazard stripes a breeze. Or using any painters tape and cutting it down to thin strips could work as well.

Red capes work for IW's, they just need shading and highlighting. These look to be just a flat red right now.

The problem for me at least in terms of iron warriors vs death guard, is that I painted my deathguard in an iron scheme and so they just look like death guard. The models are just so explicitly plague marines that you really need to work the iron warriors in. The trim to me doesn't matter, it's the application of chevrons and de-emphasizing the mutations. Avoid greens and blues and anything people associate with nurgle or alchemy; smoke should be black, eyes red, etc. I'd cut off most of the censers as thats a pretty legion specific thing.

I have read and contemplated what you have all said. The cape will stay red, now it needs to get properly painted. About hazard stripes, I have tried using masking tape, but how much I experiment with it, the shoulder pads and other areas does not look like they have stripes, the stripes might go there when I do the bigger models one day, like rhinos or dreadnoughts.  I do agree that the armour looks a bit greenish, but it all depends a bit how the lights hit them. The recipe for the my armour is Runelord brass, washed with Coelia green shade, thin layes of Vallejo Natural steel, and then some light touches with Nuln oil, just so the armour gets a an older look. I agree that the eye lenses should be red just for some spot colour. 

What I am going for is a Iron Warrior warband that has fallen into the clutches of papa Nurgle, so if/when I field them I will probably go DG rules with lots of sacrificial cultists and the few marines will be plague marines. As a loyalist player, Space wolves, I have some, but not much knowledge about either IW or DG. I do like the Plague marines models, but I loath the green/white DG aesthetics, but the gold/black/iron looks of IW is more the cup of tea for me. Maybe I should go an independent warband instead or maybe a splinter force from the IW who has gone pure Nurgle? I really have no idea if there are splinter forces from the Iron warriors or if they are an intact legion.

the gold trim has done a load for them to look more like iron warriorsbiggrin.png 

aside from that i'd say have a few tries with hazard stripes, you can test on something else abit, they are really not actually that hard to do, not even close to the realm of freehanding in my experience. you basically jsut paint a bunch of close together lines, and you can go back and forth to neaten them up

for the terminator lord, i'd say black cloak would look good on him, and maybe paint up the smoke as fire? (just reverse highlighting through black, red and yellow and a touch of white in the deepest parts)

Looking great! As carnosaur says, the gold trim will really help to sell the IW look, if slightly more putrified. ;)

For Hazard Stripes or straight lines in geberal I do have a cheat you can try.

Block out in yellow, then do a rough black line. Next you use a black fineliner pen and fix up the rougher bits so it becomes even. Then add detail/rust/damage as you see fit.

It's great to see this take form and inspire me, as I've been thinking of doing IW Plague Marines for a while, referring to my Warband Idea as the "Carnivale of Rust", where the former Iron Warriors' armour becomes completely caked in rust.

Ok so I spent a couple of hours making hazard stripes on one Marine. Not in any way happy with the result.

Good work on the drone. I think the mixture of IW and Nurgle elements works really well.

Really nice-looking drone there. You got the hazard stripes under control!

The blight drone is well-painted.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Love that Drone! The hazard painting is really nicely done on the half of the carapace.
