Hi every one! New guy here :o
Im trying to finish my Iron Hands and was hopeing to get some comments about them here on this great forum!

A big part of the army is done but there is still alot of work left. So this will be a little WIP thread for the remaining force.
Iv started painting my terminators and just finished the first one.

I cant decide if I whant the helmets to be black or white... Any thoughts?

Yes the bolter is red :P I tried keeping them white but the army needed more colour.

Black! Black! Black!

Hey, someone has to vote for the other color - right? :P

Looks good. The armor wear effect looks very well done.

I vote black. The white makes them look to raven guard or Templar.

Thank you all for the comments!

Im reading alot of white! Im leaning more and more to white... Its fun to get something different in there for the terminators.

I vote black. The white makes them look to raven guard or Templar.

This is exactly what I am afraid of! Im gonna paint the rest of the squad and decide when I se them together. Its the overall impression that is most important to me.

Silver helmets?! That is a great idea BassWave! Ill have to try that on the next one.

Im glad to se that no one is calling me a heretic for painting the bolter red :)

Black! Iron hands veterans should have Black helmets, otherwise they just look like RG or BT, as others have said.

The cover of Wrath of Iron also shows the Terminator with a Black helmet, as does the IA article

"I remember when Ragnar Blackmane had blond hair and this was aaaallll fields....."

Hi everyone!

Found this awesome picture of some Iron Hand terminators by Neil Hollis who won GD UK 2009, http://demonwinner.f...php?categorie=2
He has painted the helmets white but with a very gray tone and it looks just amazing, so I might be doing that!

In two weeks my army must be painted and ready for the upcoming apocalypse battle me and some friends have organized. Its going to be 3v3 and around 2000p per player. Total 12000points! I'v never played apocalypse before som I'm very exited :)
But this means I have to paint realy fast... Which isn't my thing. So I'm going to be forced to skip highlights and weathering until after the battle ;)

Its always fun to post some pictures but everything I'v ben working on is only halfway finished. Maby I can post something tomorrow!

Protection be yours brothers.

Cracking job matey! Love the dread, you use a air brush to paint him? Love the power fist on him, very nicely painted. LLooking forward to seeing the rest all done up as nicely as the ones here so far!

Small update!
Here's a pic of the terminators toghether with my ironfather and venerable brother Arcos!
My ironfather is a converted terminator chaplin which felt natural to me, reading their fluff. (I also loooooov the model)
All the basic colours are there now, exept for the ironfathers power weapon which is suposed to be blue but I dont have any blues right now. So I have alot of wethering, chipping and highlighting left to do. But it will have to wait untill after the apocalyps battle!
I need to gett everything bettle ready in less then two weeks so I'm stressing out. I paint realy slow.

Posted Image
I tried to paint the terminators eyes to look like they are glowing... not happy about them hehe. Any help?
C&C are very welcome!

Very nice Iron hands, and the glowing lenses looks very good and the conversion of the chaplain termi as Ironfather is so cool (maybe a close up ....pleease :( ) What are you planning next for the army?

“Three Legions of Marines stand to defend you, sire. All of us will unflinchingly place ourselves between you and the war’s desolation.
We are the greatest humans ever born – we are the flame of Humanity where the rest of the galaxy is just the spark.
In centuries of warfare, against the vileness of the alien, the lies of the heretic, the foulness of the mutant,
I have never known fear – but your silence terrifies me.”
- Primarch Sanguinius during the Battle for Terra.

Thank you!
I'll post some close ups when he is further along, or in best chase when he is finished <_<
Right now I'm working on one of my razorbacks and a vindicator, trying to get the doors from FW to look good. But they are turning out to be a pain for me... Some more work on them and then I'll post some pics!

I can't get enough of your Blood Angles btw alejandrinus! They are looking superb.
