Iron Warriors 5th Grand Company

VIXI: I have lived, I have survived.

Intro

 

I use to have a army log posted on here, in the Chaos forum.  But in 2017 that came to a end as photobucket change it terms & if anyone wish to use it for hosting there photos.  They where wanting $500 per year, or for some reason +$70 more if you went per month.  This meant any image I had on a photobucket account, had a horrible image replace every single one for all us who had a photobucket account.  This meant the topic on here & over on the forge came to a end.  

 

But I move onto the album we have here on the forum & have never look back.

 

You can find my current Iron Warriors log over on the Forge forum, over on there you will find a lot more of my Chaos collectiong.  So like World Eater, Thousand Sons, Death Guards.

http://www.bolterand...-black-crusade/

 

This topic here, will be fully focuse on the Iron Warriors, for the IW sub forum.
 

Chaos forum - Just recently, it seem the admin & mod team have brought in Legion sub forum to the Chaos area.  With start of new year as well.  I though was maybe time to bring the army log onto here.  Also now more than every a good time to be a Chaos hobbiest with all the release we've gotten during 2019.

 

 

You can find the last army log here, just the image are all down due photobucket.

Collecting

 

The reason today are the same when I started the hobby in 1996.  Cool models, background, way they game & most of all converting models.  Converting models has always been the main part of the hobby.  I like the challenge & making models "my" own.

Also add, it because of White Dwarf 202 with John Blanche art work that really got me wanting to collect Chaos Marines.  When I started the hobby 1996, I started near the end of September & I think this was the last month of the Chaos release during 2nd ed 40k.  This art work, along with the 2nd ed codex Chaos in general have been a big source of inspiration over these years as well when ever I'm looking for ideas.

Here my first ever conversion - Lord for my Black Legion force which was very Khorne heavy

Iron Warriors

 

2019 - Photo of my Iron Warriors that Warhammer World, while I was down there in September to spend my birthday.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_113087.jpg

 

I started collect Iron Warriors back in November 17th 2001, with Warsmith Abhorred Riddick been the first model.


​I started the Iron Warriors for a lot of different reason.  With the Index Astartis article from the White Dwarf, as Iron Warriors just got there a few month before I started collect the IV Legion, give background, shown great art work & given some rules to help theme the force.  Also I find they suit a lot of my own traits, with me having a forum of autism.

Also history wise, siege & trench warfare one of my favorited & days off often go to few castle, there three with in 10 min train/drive from my home. 

 

One of my friends converted up some really nice Obliterators for his Thasound Son army, before we had the current models we have today. Also gaming wise Obliterators where complete diffrent from the way they are today & your able to take up to 6 in a single unit.

 

 

All the models in my Iron Warriors force are converted & all have a theme/sub theme to help tell there story.  Having a narrative & theme for the armies I collect are very important to me.

 

 

It been a long road since starting this version of my Iron Warriors.  I can 100% say I've been happy with every models I have built, painted & use in games.  End of the day it about the enjoyment a collecting bring you in the hobby first & foremost as your spend the time & energy.  I've been really happy & grateful for all my Iron Warriors have achieve over that time, a lot - back 2011 I would never have guest would have happen.

 

I've also had my Iron Warriors force feature in the White Dwarf as part of Army of the Month article - White Dwarf August 2013.  Really grateful for the help & support from the White Dwarf team & the great care they'd taken with my Iron Warriors.  You can not guess how happy I was for this to happen & still a great highlight for me.

 

 med_gallery_13342_13449_15382.jpg

 

​Trophies

 

​Having a narrative for my armies is really important to me.  One of the thing I've been doing with this Iron Warriors force is trophies.  Ever trophy you see on my models  are base on someone I've game against over the years of collect Iron Warriors in general.  So any games that have been really great, I want to rememeber them & this is a great way to do it.  It also nice to wind up a few friends from time to time, as there a friend who collect Ultramarine who always get mad when they see a Ultramarine trophy.

​Just this is important to me & really help further make this my army.

 

Events

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_7836.jpg

 

When I first started my Iron Warriors in 2001.  It was with the aim of attending my first every event - Conflict Scotland 2002.  Since then I've attended a whole host of different events.  From Warhammer World Throne of Skulls & Campaign weekend, to local event ran by some of the gaming club.

I attend these events just so I can get more games & catch up with friends.  I've met a lot of really great people over the years & lot them I'm still friends with to this day, again met up that a Warhammer World event for example.  For me, it not about the win, loss or draw.  It more about the epic moment.

In fact two of my hardest fought games where

 

Throne of Skulls November 2012 vs Space Wolves.  We both had three models left from turn 4 to turn 7, think by the end of it both of us couldn't even talk.  Just amount people who stop to watch the game.

 

Throne of Skulls April 2018, game 999 vs Grey Knights.  Lord Narach one a single wound vs Dragio on a single wound from turn 4 to turn 6.  Ended up asking a member of the event team if they could roll a dice for us to see if the game went on.

 

But I dislike gaming against Win that all cost player & those who goal are to wipe the oppent in 20 min, deathstar list was one of the main thing killing 40k for me back in 7th ed.  I dislike been told to drop my Iron Warriors because Chaos maybe not the top thing & instead go for Tau or Eldar (anyone know me, know both armies are not for me), I just don't like that mentality.  Like wise I had no interest in the ETC or ITC scene, it just not how I wish to enjoy the gaming side of the hobby.

 

But onto the army log - Here the first update & during the next few weeks I'm aim on getting photos of each unit posted when time permit

 

 

I recently got the Chaos (can never remember it name) terrain during the Christmas holidays.  It been really great fun to paint & just add the Ultramarine & White Scar trophy today.  This should be complete by tomorrow.

med_gallery_13342_13449_1292046.jpg

 

Then here a few other recent models

 

New updated version of Sorcerer Krull.  A character who been part of my Iron Warriors since 2002.  It was the classic metal Sorcerer model I bought & painted the day before Conflict Scotland 2002 purely because I like the model.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1391087.jpg

 

Master of Execution 

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_381413.jpg

New Chaincannon arm Havocs

 

 

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_582000.jpg

 

Last year saw a brand new updated version of Warsmith Abhorred Riddick.  The update happen as I wanted to convert my Warsmith on how he should look.  

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_77498.jpg

 

My Siege Knight, one of my favrioute conversion & first time trying out transfer.  Since then he gotten some new trophy & his chainsword been swap with the one from the new Chaos Knight kit.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1022989.jpg

 

One of my favrioute models from the Chaos release was he Lord Discordant.

 

 

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1368478.jpg

 

 

Then just a few thing I got during the Christmas holidays.

 

 Art work is from Warhammer Art.  I've already got another two limited edtion prints from the Iron Warrior seen in codex Chaos Space Marines & the front cover of ADB Black Legion novel.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_55400.jpg

 

 

Also got the First Wall novel for Christmas.  Was really gutted when the novel sold out during the Sister of Battle disator.  I was on the page to print my order when it lock up.  When the site return to normal, I'd loss it due been sold out...  But seem the Chaos Gods where watch out for me.

It's good to see a fresh start to your Iron Warriors thread. I will be following closely :)

Seeing your new miniatures, two questions popped up in my head:
1. How did you do the legion symbol on the sorcerer's breastplate? I want to use the model to update one of my old sorcerers as well and this seems like a great idea.
2. I just got a Leviathan dread second hand two weeks ago. However, he has been glued in a very static pose which seems to take away some of the model's menace. Since you have built one already, do you think it is possible to cut up the joints for a repositioning job?

Looking good man! My faves are the Chaincannon Havocs :tu: though I always have a soft spot for Daemon Riddick.

The tunes on the crown look great and the Siege Dread is looking awesome so far!

Just with photobucket taken down all the image & wanting $500.  It has change, where they allowed older image to stay but with the photobucket water mark.  But it seem they've change again & look like some of my older photos from the log have been deleted now.  So I'd strong suggest avoid them that all cost, also just amount spam ad's on there web site to be honesty.  It how my lap top got hack few year ago when trying copy code only for spam ad pop up.

I only really post on here as a forum & then it facebook & Instagram.

 

It wouldn't look right or feel right having the topic where 20+ pages are loss image.  Same with the Forge topic re-start in 2017.  But also allow me clear up a few things & having better understanding from what I want out of the army log :D

 

The icon from the out of print brass etching Forge World done a while back.  But sadly your looking that £50 on ebay for a sheet.

 

With the Dreadnought - You could put him in a freezer where you will store the ice.  Leave him in there for maybe 24 hours.  This effect the super glue & why super glue react funny during the winter.  But be really careful since this is a resin model.  It more, when your trying to break the part & with resin been a fragile material.  You could use a scalpel after he been in the freezer, just be careful & just take your time.  Expect some parts to get broke due to it been resin.

I know a lot people tend to make the Siege & Contemptor into a really static pose, never understood why to be honesty.  One of my the main tip I general give to test fit the pose before glue any thing.

 

Looking good man! My faves are the Chaincannon Havocs thumbsup.gif though I always have a soft spot for Daemon Riddick.

The tunes on the crown look great and the Siege Dread is looking awesome so far!

 

Thanks.  Yes was really happy to finial model Abhorred Riddick as he meant to vs game play reason (5th to 7th, Daemon Prince really did need wings).  Where 8th ed has been so much better for them & also for the point cost.

 

I'm hoping to use the terrain on Thursday as I've never really use fortification in games.  I've still got my two Dread Fortress that are my Bastion, there something that need to get finish & sort out the trophy to newer updated once.

Update

 

Start thing off.  My copy of the January White Dwarf arrive (Subscriber) & pretty cool to see my Iron Warriors get a mention.  With photos of Warsmith Abhorred Riddick, Lord Discordant & my two oop FW IW Dreadnoughts.  Also Lord Narach taken on a Riptide.  Game was back in September while I was that Warhammer World to spend my birthday.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_719196.jpg

The Siege Dreadnought pretty much there.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_380537.jpg

 

VIXI - Latin for, "I have lived", "I have survived".  This was inspired by a band I'm into - Bury Tomorrow as they've just release a new song a few week ago, The Grey (VIXI) & seen them live on the 18th December (as always great band live).  I felt this was somthing my Siege Dreadnought needed, it connected.

The Knight I bought back in November, who be part of the Knight detachment ally to my Iron Warriors.  There a lot of work that need to get done & hope to get a bit of time during tomorrow night & Friday to get this knight built.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1040613.jpg

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1598349.jpg

 

Then some other models that will be arrive soon.

One box of Chaos Marines will be going toward my new unit of Chosen.  I've also order the Mechanicus Drill transport for them as well.  While another box is going toward convert models & try base them (with a few update) around John Blanche art work from White Dwarf 202 & 2nd ed Codex Chaos Marines.  This is due to that art work been the main source of starting Chaos as my main faction for the past 23 years now

That looks really promising! How difficult was the cutting up of the model?

 

 

Thanks

 

Only part that really needed to get removed where

- Hands

- Feet from the Obliterator with the chaincannon.  This was due to personal not like the very tainted elephant feet that the model has - much like the DV Helbrute model & it a look I general want to keep away from my own Chaos armies.

- Clipping the shoulder pad off, replace with Archon & Varanguard pads

- Remove the Plasma Cannon, again just personal not like the to mutated look on it.

 

The small Games Workshop saw been really great & has became one of main use tools in the hobby for me.

 

Here the Obliterators.  A Third one will get added that some point, other wise I'm waiting until box set get release for future models.

Now working on a unit of Chosen whole be arm with mix of Thunder Hammer, Combi Bolter & Chainaxe.  It be 10 models in the unit, but unsure what heavy weapon to go for to be honsty.  I'm aim on getting the FW Mechanicus drill transport built soon that will act as this unit transport.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1656196.jpg

One of the brand new object marker.  The once I've been using since 2013 are given into wear & tear.  Seem right to make some brand new object which will be getting sorted over the next few days.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_604576.jpg

Then Chaos Knight Rampager nearly there.  Finial getting around to building the models, since buy him in November.  I just need to add a bit more green stuff to the base & aim have the model ready soon with a Knight vs Knight game in March.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_422274.jpg

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1692806.jpg

The Knight style mask is going to be base upon a game I have that Throne of Skulls last year.  As always, all troph on my Iron Warriors are base around games I've had in the past.  This help add narrative, but also remember those great games & most of all when great moment happen.

Also recently went back to repaint some part of the Master of Possessed.  I wanted to keep with the warp fire look & follow the guide Duncan has over on Warhammer TV.

Brand new Object marker.  My current Object marker are starting to give into wear & tear, with some parts missing or damage.  So though it was time to add some new once.

The Primaris Marines will be Ultramarines & they will be base (Primaris version) of the squad of Ultramarine shown below, though a nice way.

I also seem to have kick of #MarchForMacragge, the right way msn-wink.gif

Spent last week painting up a few new models to take to Throne of Skulls during the weekend just there.  Was a great weekend with five great games & catch up with a lot of people I've met &/or game against over the years.  Highly recommend Warhammer World events.

 

On model side

 

When working out my list, I seem to miss done somthing & it turn out I was not able to take a second Helbrute in the list.  I think I was over by 48pts (125 for the Helbrute w/Power Scrouage).  This left me with 77pts to spend & quick look check in the codex & I was able to take a Lord with Chainaxe & Combi Bolter with out a large change to the list I wanted to take.

 

Seen Lord Varik Drago.  I enjoy making the orignaly model back in 2017 during the Christmas holidays.  I wanted a model to represent my Grand Company standard.  But when looking that the model, it sort of felt out of place with the Chaos Space Marines range just been updated nearly a year ago.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_781636.jpg

 

So the weekend before, I ended up making a second version of Varik Drago.  There nothing wrong with doing this, it happe.  Part get release that look cool & would have fitted the idea a bit better.  I ended up useing the Axe, Banner & Datasmith Servo arm from the Mk1 version to keep that look for the new updated version

Mk2 version was painted on Wednsday & completed by the end of the day before the finial detail where needed

med_gallery_13342_13449_898409.jpg

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1436316.jpg

 

With the new Chaos Marines kits, there so much more space to add extra gear & trophy.  With that in mind, I kept a area free where I aim on adding a Death Korp trophy which I ended up buying the artillery crew while that Warhammer World.  This is to mark a great game I had during my gaming club tournament back 2018.  It was just Varik Drago by himself with two wound against 8 Basilisk when the game ended.  He'd just slay three Charecter & two squads while holding a object & his ground for turn 2 up to turn 6.  One of the greatess games to end a event with.  It also allow me to add a Alpha Legion trophy base on my 1000th game against Ryan from Throne of Skulls April 2018.

 

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_183277.jpg

 

The Master of Possessed with the flame been re-painted.  I'm thinking of possible adding a few skull to the chain on his hip.  Not to many, just one or two of them.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1249561.jpg

The new Obliterators.  The third (Middle) was complete on Tuesday.  Really happy how the unit turn out & happy they pick up the Company of Legend award that Warhammer World.  Just it was from see a friend conversion 2001 of Obliterators for there Thousand Sons that where one of a few other reason that led to me collecting Iron Warriors as well.

Knight Rampager almost there.  He ready for undercoating.  Because I can often feel rubbish the day after return home from Nottingham - Anxeity of travel can see me with some of the worst headache.  I though take thing easy & when I was in a ok moment, getting thing done like baseing & fixing broken models from the weekend.  He going to have his first game next week in a Chaos Knight vs Knights game.

med_gallery_13342_13449_98523.jpg

 

While thinking of update.  I've been looking that my Chaos Siege Knight.  It more going to update the skulls that are on the Hellcannon.  The once sculpted onto the model (finecast) look far to cartoony & also a few spike broke off during the weekend.  I'm going to update the skulls & where spike have broken off, I'm going to add a few new trophy from games that been important.  One them was the Campaign weekend 2018, against a Blood Angels Librarian.

 

It good to add on & update models.  It add new life to them & again part do get release that we think look cool & would have added to a model we'd just finish.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_184793.jpg

Brand new object marker that where all painted on Sunday.  The object marker I had (2013) where starting to fall apart, just down to wear & tear.  So though it was time update them a bit & this time base them on Primaris Ultramarines.  Again bring in, new part been release as to be honsty there better Chaos Icon that been release over the past few years.  Also wanting to use the Warhammer World map with my Iron Warriors take part in a lot of events down there.

Three Battle Brother for the John Blanche art work/Andy Chamber conversion inspired unit.

I'm also aim on converting a Rhino base on Andy Chamber version, seen below.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_427654.jpg

 

The unit of Chosen.  Like above, a few part have arrive & allowed me to get a few more Battle Brother built.  But it mainly waiting to get the Champion from Shadowspear for the Chainaxe for the rest of the unit.  I'm going to have to wait until next month to buy those models.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1520564.jpg

 

 

Then there transport.  Back September I got a game against Ryan, who give me my 1000th game that Throne of Skulls April 2018.  So this was a rematch while I was that Warhammer World for my birthday & he use one of these Mechanicus drill transport but with Berserker & a Lord (who wanted vengeance against my IW's),  In one of Graham McNeill short novel in the Honsou series, it talk about how he use them during the Siege of Ultramar.  I'm going to get a large base for this & have a lot of bursted up ruin.  Part of this to try protect the model with it been resin & some place still use sand on there terrain base & just something look cool.

 

med_gallery_13342_13449_1168081.jpg

 

 

Last month I knock my Chaos Knight by mistake during my fourth game that Warhammer World Throne of Skulls.  It meant a few spike broke off & it going to be a headache to sort.  So though it would be a chance to add some new trophy.  I'm also replace the out dated skull sculpts as well.

The Venomcrawler looks great. Have to admit I'm also a huge fan of the way you choose and do your trophies. I'm going to do something similar with my Iron Warrior force.
