‘I shall be an architect and a demolisher, destroyer of the bastions of evil and builder of the citadels of the new Imperium. No fortress shall ever be impenetrable to me, and no fortress that I protect shall ever be broken. I shall be Perturabo’s fist and the Emperor’s hammer. I shall seek no personal glory, for my achievements shall be my legions and not my own. I pledge myself to the IV legion, and I pledge myself to the IV Grand Battalion.’
-Oath of the IV Grand Battalion

‘We are thought of as simple warriors, dull tools useful only for killing and war. We are the forgotten legion, the Emperor’s overlooked sons. We are given no glory. None of our warriors are remembered as heroes. No remembrancers are attached to our legion, no monuments are built in our picture, no planets named for us. We are but instruments of the Emperor and our Father, but that is our job and that is the job that we perform.
-Warsmith Bardych Throssus

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
-John 10:10



I have recently been inspired to start a Heresy project. At first I wanted Salamanders, but soon realized that I would be bored by painting green. I then happened upon two great logs, 1000heathens on B&C and Morden279 on Warseer. After reading through the two of them, I knew which legion to pick. My first order from Forge World has recently arrived, although I have limited access to it until Christmas, so without further ado I present to you my first model, Brother Tius of the IV Grand Battalion, III Squad:

I will be leaving off almost all of the shoulder pads on the left arms until FW releases the legion specific pads for the Iron Warriors. I will try to finish another model in the upcoming week, but until then any feed back is welcome, and have a good day.

That's so cool, pre heresy IW. I like the contrast on the helmet with the frontal protection. You chose a pretty dark color scheme for the Iron, that's interesting. I would love to see you paint few more guys a take a pic of them all to start having a feeling of group.
