The Flesh is Weak

"Logic is the key to victory. It guides us, forms our thoughts. To think otherwise is heresy." - Iron Chaplain Josphuus Naehr 

 

Hey everyone!

 

Going to be editing this in the future with batreps, list concepts, build & paint jobs as well as my random thoughts on Iron Hands. I will also have separate links here that spread out to other important topics throughout B&C and other websites as I gather them to keep them located in one place. As I said I'll be doing a lot of editing to get this post up to Iron Hands standards over the next few weeks/months. I hope to share my journey towards the machine with all of my friends and brothers, and even some xenos, in the future.

Some people say to start small and work your way up. While I do agree with them for the most part, I am unable to comply. I am hoping to pick up one of my first HQs on the 23rd. I will be calling my local GW store tomorrow to verify if they have the model in stock. If not, I'll ask to have them order it so I can pick it up as soon as possible.

Plan: This kit comes in resin and in four pieces. I really wanted to avoid resin but this model is very nice and I want it. I will be sculpting robotic limb replacements for the body with the goal being to have at least two of the limbs replaced with bionics. I am also going to be looking at sculpting optics on the skull helm as well. The optics will most likely be attached to the left side of the helm as the head is looking to the right. I need to look into how to make sure greenstuff sticks to resin. This will most likely require pinning which I'm fine with. I will be starting this project on Jan 1st 2020, funds permitting.

Order placed for my Terminator Chaplain and the colors I'll be needing to paint him up. Need to find my sculpting tool or swing over to the local hobby store and pick one up so I can start working on the custom sculpting when I get the miniature. Going to try something crazy and work on painting it up with that Darren Latham guide for characters above. I'm not in any rush as I will be building the army very slowly. Every Terminator in my army will have massive bionic replacements including the Librarian and the Chaplain.

 

I'll try to take as many pictures of the process as I can while I'm building everything. I already know that I will be forming some of the parts with wire and covering the wire with green stuff to get the look I'm going for. Pictures will be coming in the next few weeks.
