I decided to start another new project recently in the form of a further Legion for Horus Heresy / Warhammer 30,000 gaming.

I know, I know... I have a thousand different projects on, but I find I need variety to keep me interested.

After much consideration I settled on doing an army of Iron Warriors as I love their aesthetic and I can also use them in 40k (possibly as Silver Skull proxies).

The basic metal power armour is relatively quick to achieve ... though I did spend ages on highlights where a drybrush might have sufficed. But those hazard stripes... man they take an absolute age!!

I chose to use MK III Iron armour for my first five man test batch as I think it’s sheer brutality suits the Legion’s look better than the sleeker MK IV Maximus pattern.

I’m really pleased with them overall, especially the Sergeant’s power sword and the new red bases I’m trialling! Now I’ve settled on a scheme I guess I’ll have to paint some more....

Your models are well-painted. Good job.

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 these guys. The choice to leave the pauldron rims silver is nice, it gives them a really utilitarian vibe. Very Iron Warriors, Perturabo would approve.

Very nice work. Good to see the a bit of s different take in the Iron Warriors. A whole army of them is going to look awesome


Grey, however, failed to capture the ape. It escaped to France where it murdered a rich widow and was hanged.

After the initial success of my first batch of Iron Warriors last week I decided to knock out another five Astartes in order to keep them company.

CIsMOwc.jpg

I went for another five tactical marines in Mk III Iron Armour (my favourite version of the iconic space marine battle plate) in order to bring the squad up to ten warriors.

UoT32Q3.jpg

I chose to equip one of the marines with a vexilia (aka banner) as this has some limited in game effects but also looks pretty cool.

Again these mighty warriors were really enjoyable to paint and I think they ended up looking pretty cool. I think I have finally mastered the art of hazard stripes now!!

I’m thinking of doing a few more in order to go for a twenty man Legion Tactical Squad.
