The slow inexorable advance through my Pile of Potential (Shame) for my Iron Warriors is going pretty well, the Maulerfiend is shaping up pretty well. :D

I see we have the same; "Toss :cuss we don't like onto the base as a sacrifice" mentality.

That is actually a really good conversion idea to mix up the rather static Maulerfiend/Forgefiend kit. I will make sure to remember it :-)

They're a good army to have a load of rubble/dead things on, especially with a colour scheme that has so bright colours! I have a couple of friends in my gaming group that my Iron Warriors have a Grudge against: Dark Angels and Imperial Fists. They're also good colours to add to the base to brighten it up! biggrin.png

Thank you Kythnos! It's been such a long time since I even built the thing that it's nice to see the finished result biggrin.png

 

Speaking of finished result:

I really like how your mauler is painted - that trim highlighting is excellent and really brings the model to another level.

 

What's your recipe for the gold?  It's pretty close to what I would like to have on models.

Thank you Dr! The entire model tends to look incredibly bland until the highlights biggrin.png

 

For the Brass armour trim all I do is: Leadbelcher spray undercoat, healthy layer of Basilicanum Grey over the entire model, Snakebite leather over the trim and then a highlight of Sycorax Bronze

For proper gold, I do: Retributor Gold, Agrax Earthshade, small splodges of Drucii Violet and if the model is lucky a small highlight of Iron Hands Steel thumbsup.gif

 

After 3 years of languishing in the Pile of Potential (Shame), I finally painted up the Lord Discordant my friend got me for my birthday. It was way less daunting than I thought it would be sweat.gif

Individually these are lovely, but together they're an excellently varied but cohesive force. Love the way you scatter the hazard striping throughout.

Thank you Inspirit! If I can cut it up and fit it on a base while keeping the theme of the army, I'll do it! biggrin.png 

 

Individually these are lovely, but together they're an excellently varied but cohesive force. Love the way you scatter the hazard striping throughout.

 

Cheers Naryn! I'm glad my aim for cohesion but individual is coming across, I honestly just smash Hazard Stripes on a couple of random spots on the model where it's easiest to get to sweat.gif 

 

I've spent a couple of days getting a Leviathan built after having it sat in pieces for a good while. The Leviathan is a great chasis but can look a little bland at times due to large flat panels. As per the usual with my vehicles and dreads, I've smashed some extra bits on. It's supposed to look like it's pushing off into a sprint but doesn't quite come across in photos oops.gif

While glue and GS was drying I started work on the Breacher Chosen, still a fair chunk of stuff to do:

Thank you WF! The juices are flowing once more although a certain pointy eared army is looming sweat.gif

 

I've also been working away on a couple of Characters, the first of which is a Master of Executions. He's on a 60mm base and is a bit over the top but I thought it was a pretty cool mini. I have space next to the big head to add the skulls/helmets of Characters I kill with him too:

My Basilicanum Grey contrast ran out finally and I ordered a new one. The New pot is very grey in comparison to the last pot and I'm not sure if the new grey is all that great. I'll need to test it out and compare sweat.gif

It's a little OTT yes, but with an IW army I feel you have some room to add it compared to the rest of your models :P My Executioner has done great work for me though he's yet to claim a particularly noteworthy kill. Pretty good at carving his way through most things especially if you give him some Relic support :)

I've never run a MoE before so it'll be interesting to see what he can do, I play against a lot of marine players so he should have a good stack of different Chapter's helmetsbiggrin.png

 

Bar the base I got him done last night, I was worried about the runes on the axe but they came out alright after a wash or two of Nuln oil

I thought his rules were pretty good and wanted to model my own up but I'm glad I did. He's been a fixture in all my lists since I think? Short of horde armies he will probably be able to find targets to chop up, so along with how nice the model is I think he's earned that spot and I expect yours will too! The colours have come together nicely he'll really pop once the base is finished off :tu:

A wonderful model! The Axe of Dismemberment's runes look fine to me.

I tried him in a tournament last weekend. It was the first time I had ever used a Master of Executions and I was impressed. He took a chunk of wounds off of a Redemptor Dreadnought and killed a Venomcrawler outright.

Thank you both! I'm hoping the MoE will move into the Elite slot as the HQ slot is so busy for Chaos! Having a character to run around and make opponents think twice about where they put their characters will be a  great thing! biggrin.png
 
I got the Master of Possession done over the weekend and my Eldritch Omens box arrived too! As I've already got 10 Chosen built up (most are still awaiting paint), my friendis taking the Chosen off my hands, a win-win for me!
 
The Master of Possession is probably the coolest base design I've done. I had the idea that he's possessing/manipulating the barbed wire to move himself across the battefield in a similar way to Magneto or something similar. The name plate is from a friend as I had a Master of Possession for my Black Legion army that won me many a game and killed many a champion so I'm carrying it over in the vain hope he's still a madman biggrin.png

The Warpsmith has been built too, I toned him down a tad by removing the tendrils that come out from above the belt, swapped the head and shoulder plates out as well as changing the hammer head for a GSC Abherrant one:
