Those look pretty good, usually it seems like Iron Warriors can be a...ahem..cop out army. Ie, they take like 15 minutes to paint to a TT standard.

I think yours are way better than that, they look clean and highlighted.

How are you gonna do the bases?

Nice, clean, well highlighted, and not taking the easy way out, kudos to you, but you're diverting attention away from your 20000pts of chaos.

Get back onto that too :p.

They look good, nice definition between the gold and silver, I know that can be a problem distinguishing between them, or at least getting them to look like they are more than just gold and silver.

i can just about make out the eyes, a very dark green correct? im sure they will be ok. they look fine, im not a fan of drybrushing but your detailing on the trim is a nice contrast

looks good but the arms and the autocannon looks odd?? is it just the photo?

anyway good luck, looks good.

FearFrost
04-02-2006, 08:40
The small amounts of red trim REALLY help make these models pop, they are a good call.

And yeah, at that angle the autocannon arm looks funky.

Very good. But I am waiting on Slaaneshi Daemonic Legion unpatiently.

they look good, especially at such a fast rate, but I would personally say that the yellow and black stripes may be a little overkill, as the yellow draws the eyes (well, at least my eyes) towards them and away from the rest of the mini, and I feel you loose the gritty effect.

Great progress, the DP is very cool, but maybe not quite up to the standard I have grown to expect from your individual pieces.

Love the new avatar BTW :D.

The Daemon Prince's sword looks pretty sinister:chrome: . The turquise is a nice add it to the steel colour of Iron Warriors and is nice to be kept around by some minis throughout the army (plasmagun). a good linking factor.

Those are some impressively painted miniatures you've done!:) I really like the Chaos Marine pictured in the middle of squad gamma, though the others in the group look great too. The weathered, rusty look on the Vindicator turned out very well, and the Obliterators look quite scary and cool!
Also, good job finishing such good looking minis so quickly!

Impresive. 150 points a day! And excellent standard. Drill the guns (or paint black dots) base them and viola. The FW dreadnought if faaaar better and not that much more expensive...
