So with my vow for March of the Machines, here's my Iron Hands progress thread! 

I got started with the Iron Hands with the Codex Supplement. I've enjoyed them in the HH novels, and the Supplement favored big guns (yay), is totally metal, and my partner insisted on me getting and painting Iron Father Ferrios because they love the model that much and well, why stop there?

I've gotten almost a thousand points painted so far, with a pretty quick and easy technique:

1. Prime black.

2. Coat of Abaddon Black

3. Leadbelcher for joints, gun gubbins, vents, and similar.

4. Iron Hands Steel for, uh, iron hands, aquilas, and similar decorations (I am being very stingy with gold in this army)

5. Nuln Oil on the Leadbelcher

6. Clean up the Abaddon Black from the above steps

7. Careful drybrush with Necron Compound, they key being not just catching edges but ever so lightly buffing the flat and especially curved surfaces, giving a slight metallic sheen to the black

8. Draw the rest of the owlAll the spot and detail colors and the basing

9. Matte spray

10. Another coat of Iron Hands Steel over those elements

11. Nuln Oil Gloss recess shade on all the Iron Hands Steel
12.  Stormhost Silver  highlights on the Iron Hands Steel and as an extreme edge highlight for the black armor

 

A few examples of already done models before getting into the pledge progress:

 

Gravis Captain as the initial test:

Thank you all!

I'm knocking out the command tanks in part because I'm aiming to get the things I picked up at LVO knocked out sooner rather than later. Next month is going to be the Astraeus!

Shame about that CHARACTER keyword on the Excelsior going away though. Still gonna be fun to stuff it full of Cataphractii.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Keeps getting better !

In darkness I am light. In times of doubt my faith is strong. In fits of rage I hone my craft. In vengeance no mercy is given. I have no fear. In the face of death I show no remorse.
