Guess what came in the post today! :D I can haz a happy. :P

Right, even lolcat esque talk, yep that's right my Iron Armour and Phobos bolters came in the post today, so I have spent the better part of the morining and afternoon, scrubbing off sealent, and building my test mini. It was my first time working with resin and I was really pleased with the results. As I said above he will be in the Iron Warriors colour scheme. So without further adue here's the pics....

....Right after a product review. :lol:

So where to start well I have to say thedetail on these minis is fantastic. Forget what you've seen in the pictures and multiply it by three.There are so many little details on the mini that are so easy to miss, like the bolts on the side of the legs holding the extra frontal armour on the legs. The design efficet works perfectly in unision with the Mk II armour as far as I can tell. It really looks like they scultpted the Mk II armour and then worked how the extra plating would work on the model itself in real life. Although you are limted to a few poses considering there are only two different sets of legs, and that the groinal armour removes the ability to twist the torso to far into new positions. The helmet are brilliantly scaled however and are around about the same size as normal marine helemts. However as a word of warning stay away from bare head marine heads, because lets just say there twice the size of the helmets. <_< Fortunatley we have the flaggelent and empire wizard kits, trust me they have the best proportioned human heads in the entire GW range. The model really fits together quite well and even sticks firmly with GW plastic glue! The joints are nice and smooth and the kit really seems to be compatiable with the normal marine kits. So In conclusion this is a great kit and a great induction into the marine range. In the words of GW, "Buy Buy New Shiny!"

Overall Score: 7/10

I wants the happy too! Dey is soo pretty.

You are right in that they seem too look even nicer IRL then on the FW web-page. Did the Iron Warriors have the same paint-scheme pre-heresy as after?

For the record their armor was painted the same both Pre/Post heresy.

I saw these photos on the Great Crusade, but I got to say they are very cool looking. Can't wait to see them with some paint slapped on.

those should end up looking good, I can't wait to see my favorite legion done up in pre-heresy armor.

This should be interesting to see, I'm surprised that there aren't more MKIII Iron Warriors logs knocking around given the armour looks perfect for them.

Maybe I should start a log...nah, effort :D I'll be keeping an eye on this to see where it goes ^^
