Iron Warriors WIP

Yes, this is now my 5th chaos legion and yes these guys aren't quite finished yet (detailing still required) but this blog has been in suspended animation for too long so I figured I would try and revive it with my current project.

The idea is for my core of the army to be comprised of Iron Warriors as well as any and all chaotic looking units such as the starter set dreadnoughts, forge/maulerfiends and heldrakes. I've always felt that the design of these things doesn't really fit with any of the existing chaos armies I own but suit Iron Warriors perfectly.

With Iron Warriors as the core it can be augmented with Thousand Sons, World Eaters, Emperors Children or Night Lords for the elite special infantry.

Anyway more to follow and completion of these models to follow as well.

  1. Ethrion – I’ve always been a fan of the level of thought you put into army creation, especially when it comes to composition along with how well it fits within the storyline that is the Warhammer 40,000 world. I especially like how you envisioned your Night Lords to fight, always in scattered warbands and odd units here and there, never again being able to fight as a coherent legion since the blow they took during the Heresy. I look forward to seeing how your Iron Warriors turn out.

    Small tip on painting the chevron pattern on your chainswords. Paint sword Chaos Black (or Abaddon Black), paint strips of Iyanden Darksun (foundation paint) over. Don’t make the strips too thin and once dried, paint a thinner strip of Golden Yellow within the Iyanden Darksun. This supposedly creates an illusion of straightness in the chevron. Do the same for the black, paint a thinner strip of Codex Grey/Chaos Black.

    Hope it helps.
