Started work on next years force, which I've decided is going to be Chaos Space Marines, and specifically Iron Warriors, I enjoyed the Black Legion but it was causing me pain with my carpel tunnel

 

I had a look through my books and book covers for some artwork and I had settled on World Eaters, however looking at the parts I need to complete the look it was getting very pricy.

 

Looking back through my phone notes when I was originally staring CSM and picked black legion I had saved lots of details of Iron Warriors as my second choice.

 

This was one of the Art References I had. Honsou - Warmaster of the Iron Warriors.

SO i brought a load of bits and realise that Mk3 Armour is small now. Death Guard have Mk3 armour and are near Primaris sized so I brought a few of them and got my saw going.

 

Here is what I'm up to so Far.

I've removed the weapon from the hand and made the fist a bit tidier. I've also spend like 2 hours making the arm sit in the slot by using a Dremel to open out the hole and done some green stuff on the legs.

 

Also sanded and glued the front plates and chains to the model

 

I posted up to Twitter earlier on and its got a good reception so far and I'm the kind of converter and painter that will take shortcuts but I won't be doing that now based on the following feedback from Twitter from a guy with a cool name!

That's a cracking rendition of the art. High praise indeed from McNeill!

Looking good!  Did you use https://www.instagra.../p/B3Eh_0AH0F1/ as a reference?

Hell yeah megzikes work is awesome I found this one originally from Spedgeymini's then found megzikes as a similar image, I assume he used this one as reference also.

That one is solid as well.  I think the Mk 3 is the way to go though.  Just a much more brutal looking armor.  Plus I dont see Iron Warriors with that much daemonic detail on the armor.

Totally agreed i was looking at Krakendoom's deathguard and they're a bigger size than the newer CSM stuff too.

 

Honsou is a half breed and I think the cobbled together armour but obviously functioning really suits.

Loving the Honso really smoothly blended the parts together and covered the deathguard details.

A whole army to support him will look ace.

Looking really good!

 

I only have one minor quibble, and it's really minor:

Honsou's bionic eye is blue.

I had a real dilemma with the eye and i have considered re-painting it as I will be painting blue lenses for my iron warriors.

 

I was using this art work as the reference for painting and its got a red eye so I sort have accepted it for now. I'm going to see how it looks when I've painted more of the force

Really nice work, you've done a great job of recreating the artwork. I really like your interpretation. :tu:

That Honsou conversion is so close to the artwork! Fantastic job! I's probably keep the red eye, simply because it seems more menacing ;)

Thanks very much! I'm planning out an master of executioners currently so looking forward to adding that model next :) 

Also planning on trying out some small conversion ideas :)
