My legion of choice is the Iron warriors, my reasons for choosing this legion are two fold; firstly, i've been wanting to do an Iron Warriors army for some years now and this seemed too good an opportunity not to finally get around to actually doing it. Secondly I really like the 'whatever it takes' ethos of the legion, that no matter what the costs we will win or die attitude.
The first models that i've completed are 5 tactical marines and a leviathan dreadnought, the plan is for every five troops I paint I can then work on something more exciting, so these are the results of me putting that test to the plan.
I've kept the paint scheme very simple as health problems over the last 12 months make it difficult for me to sit at a desk and paint for long periods of time, so I wanted a scheme that would allow me to dive in and do ten minutes when and where I can. Overall i'm pretty happy with them, I'm just waiting on Forgeworld to restock its Iron Warriors transfer sheet so that I can furnish them with tactical and legion symbols.
The weapons on the leviathan are magnetised so that I can swap them out when I pick up some alternate options.
The plan for the remainder of March is to complete another five tactical marines and a contemptor dreadnought.
Here are a few more pics of the models...
Thanks for taking a look, Xacheriel...
