Today I start my Iron Warriors journey, hopefully this should help me keep motivated and productive. I have plans for a 1000pt list from what models I own so I have my target and even a game day towards the end of October I'm optimistically aiming for. Covid dependant as always these days.
So here is what I'm starting with - 20 MkIII Marines and what will be a slightly modified Chaplain (he'll be a Chaos Lord). Just gonna swap out the Crozius for a Thunder Hammer, which I haven't done yet as you can see:
I've used Duncan's speed painting IW video as a jumping off point as I want to try something different with this army. Normally I methodically (and slowly) make my way through my paint schemes. Undercoating, base coating, layer, wash etc... and so I wanted to have a faster painted army that still looked good on the table but was less effort to get it there.
Behold! My Iron Warrior paint scheme:
I need a bit more practice with the hazard stripes and to paint them at more of an angle I think. Anyway, as you can see it's mostly Duncan's paint recipe but with a few alterations that aren't really worth mentioning. I'm very happy with the results so I'm hoping to start churning the Marines out! As for basing I'm thinking of some mud and snow? Always like a bit of snow and it'll help lighten the model a bit.
After this lot I have 20 Cultists to work on which I'll try and keep to the same speed painting* ethos. Plus they're cultists, so most likely won't be on the table long enough for people to really take a look at them
*speed painting by my metric at any rate!
