Finally i've managed to complete the first half of my Iron Warriors Siege Tyrant Terminator unit. The big delay with these was deciding which missile launchers to use on the models.
This unit seemed to be sitting around on my hobby table for quite a while, half built and just waiting for me to make my mind up on just what missile launchers to use so I could complete the models. The sheer number of third party options made this a difficult choice, and the big consideration for me was how they looked in proportion to the model.
I looked at several options and settled on the design from Anvil Industry. The casts where excellent and I think you'll agree the scale looks pretty good. I'm not a fan of having missile launchers that stand too high or stick out too far off the shoulders. So with these the width was good, but i wasn't so keen on how high they looked, so I took out my hobby knife and started cutting away at the mount to lower them and shape it to the top of the cataphractii terminator armour. I then drilled and pinned them in place.
I'm pretty pleased with the outcome, they sit low on the shoulders and actually look part of the suit of armour rather than just sitting on top.
The second model for this post is my Iron Warriors Contemptor Dreadnought that I finished a few weeks ago, but forgot to post. I went for the double twin linked volkite culverins as I reckon i've got enough anti tank in the rest of my army. nevertheless the plan is to paint up a pair of either plasma cannons or lascannons that i can swap out for games, just not sure which yet.
Time to get painting that second Iron Circle...
