Iron X a 30k/40k plog

Hello!

 

After reading the novel-collection Shattered legions, I had to build a new army; the iron hands.

 

The fluff is too powerful to resist. I have the models and am thinking about an army group with lots of dreads.

 

The colour-scheme in my mind is dirty, battledamaged iron hands and these are my first models out of the forge. What do you think?

I'd certainly say you've hit the dingy feel you were going for.  Welcome to the Iron Tenth!

 

As for my pictures, I'd recommend either imgur or utilizing the gallery service here on the B&C.  Instagram is a pain to work with and Photobucket has started killing hotlinks unless you pay for their services.

Long time ago i begun Iron Hands. I lost focus When i realized IH got forgotten by GW again. I begun painting and playing other armies and have started multiple half-done projects. But Iron Hands is always closest to my heart. I’ve realized why be on the never ending search for the best chapter? Why not stick to the one that appeals to me most? I’m gonna help make iron hands great again. Starting with a battle 3 weeks from now.

 

My list is focused on rapier hvy Bolter batteries, deredo dreadnought, and regular marines. Also there will be a squad of breachers (veterans with storm shields and plasma guns) Starting of with a squad of merciless marines:

Very fine work Brother:thumbsup:

Thank you brother! Really fun to paint up the Iron X! I have great plans :)

 

A leviathan, 2-3 contemptors, 3 predators and a Deredo :)

 

My biggest question is if its worth painting cataphractii and/or tartaros termies or if i should order the gorgon termies..

Your legion looks amazing!

 

Can you share your recipe for your black power armor?  I have a row of failed black templar marines that I have been trying to achieve this look on for about two months.

 

Is it a silver metallic base paint with a black wash airbrushed on?
