After a few years hiatus and in the process of helping my folks move iv recovered my old minis many of which I never finished. Thinking out of all the factions that my iron warriors are the most likely to be finishable (just doing army nor caring much about codexs or such as I don't game anymore more doing a few cool minis and such. Anyway as my old photobucket is locked down apparently will attempt to add a few pics of what was my counts as deamon Prince dreadnought which was likely the last thing I got for these guys...

I agree! That's a wonderful Dreadknight conversion. I particularly like the various cables and wires everywhere :tu:

cheers guys. iirc  it was a bit of a vision i had that had to be done. of course ironwarriors would go out of their way to cannibilise and rewire and corrupt a fallen dreadknight, be it rewiring or whatever it took. most of my iron warrior conversions were more that than fleshy conversions. even my oblists were coupled together and such too. will be more pics of more aconversions and such when i can dig them out til i can get time to jump back onto the painting bandwagon. even had a load of cultists to do(did lots of head and weapon swaps and such so as to break them up) 

also since i last did moddels iv since got a dremmel and lots more tooks to play with. i also makefull sized sheilds so may end up doinga full sized chaos themed one for giggles...

Grabbed a few pics before jumping back onto nightshift firstly my idea to upgrade my iron warriors... rust. Exemplified on my post apoc airsoft gear which is just plastic. Metallic paint and iron powder and vinegar...

rust

So if that works well when I try it likely on my predator I'll roll it out accross the warriors. Anyway to give a rough idea where my minis currently are...

He certainly looks very rusty! Will need to see the arms back on for the full effect but it's looking like a successful experiment so far :tu:

thanks. ive somehow lost his arms in moving him around the house buyt ocouldnt find one of his original ones anyway. have to say ive been looking at him and im fairly happy with how this technique has turned out. think itll really change them from looking too clean to more warp surviving traitors making do. adds detail to the too big flat metal plates. will get a few more pics of how it turned out on the other test subjects then hopefully get a wee bit of time at some later in the week to do some

 

also will have another look at basing on some of them as its too much life in that grass for my liking... may burn it...

Cheers. tbh i cant tel you exactly as that was years ago and various cloaks were done differently but iv always made my own washes and such before gw sold them. think by the time i did these guys i was using gw ones too. i likely undercoated black then used something like snakebite leather, couple thin watered slightly coats then washed and highlight with drybrushed  in alternating layers. if you like thi guy youll love the lord wherever ive put him, his looks like skin. think hes stull in the roofspace with his pet turkey bot...

An olde Vindicator! Yes that would be great repurposed for your IW :tu: I'm a big fan of Predators so it's nice to see yours coming along. I like the Furioso arm for the Dread I think it fits very well :)

 

As for your grand rusting project it's coming along fantastically! Really darkens the models and makes them suitably grubby and... well, Iron Warriors-y? teehee.gif

You're using iron powder and vinegar? So, you're making actual rust? You're painting on iron powder and (I'm guessing here) dabbing a sponge soaked in vinegar on the finished models?

Well, whatever your method it's bloody brilliant!

yup i only got the old bugger a few months before the current models came out, i love the new ones and the old dosent really fit my angels asthetic beside the new rhino chassis. so definately think itll fit far better course will have to add a few details beofre i paint to make it fit better... 

cheers, loving it so far. may have went too heavy on the pred so may have to clean a bit off but all experamental and comming well

essentiallly... im using a sponge to put on a paint medium that dries clear and am using a salt shaker to dust it on  and then using a spray bottle of vinegar cleaner to spray the whole model so it runs and stuff too. may end up having to vernish or such it at some point if i ever end up having to move minis but as iv currently no intention of gaming or moving them i should not have that issue unless something changes. but yeah happy with the experaments, eyeing up the dreadknight next... rusty time is a comming

I like the level of rust. But I like heavy weathering on tanks because in the Army our Deuce and a Halfs and Humvees always got very dirty. 😀

Thanks. Think there's just a few bits I'll end up reducing the rust now the more I look at it. Think I'll cracked out other paints and fish some details.
Trying to figure out some details... does anyone know where I can find existing details of iron warrior great company's and such? Want to add some details and avoid established characters
