Well, I did post(on the B&C) and finish this one before X-mas, but as I haven't posted it here, I thought I'd add it here. Took quite a while to get them done, and there's still more units that are in need of paint(termies, more oblies, vindie, bassy, 4th pred, havocs etc...).
Always intrested to hear comments etc. Feel free to ask if there's anything.


First some shots of the guys together.

OH HELLS YES

Beautiful army, totally awesome. Metal on the marines, all those hazards, great conversions everywhere, Impy Fist bases, all good good good. Pics aren't bad either :D

On your DP - especially awesome by the by - very nice bionics, but I was wondering what you used for his hands? Especially the open one.

Thanks for sharing, really fantastic. Got "Best Army" all over it ;)

The weathering is really quite simple.
I do a basecoat of mithril silver on a black spray basecoat. The mithril silver is better because it needs more layers of washes before it goes dark, as compared to boltgun.
Basicly I do lots of layers with washes of chaosblack+darkangelsgreen+tankbrown (vallejo), chaosblack+lichepurple+tankbrown and chaosblack+tank brown.
The idea is just to build up a coating of different layers of thin colors, that end up looking like a patina of rust, blood and grime on the armor. After it's somewhat dark, I use mithril silver again, to do some scratches and dents etc on the armor. Also painting some fake edge highlights in the form of suitably scratches corners etc. That's pretty much how it work. Feel free to ask if there's something more about the technique. :D

@Boss stompy
The open hand is the avatars bloody hand. The hand holding the hammer is just the basic DP hand.

BTW, I added the pics of my liutenant. I had forgotten he was missing in the army shots, as I dropped him on the floor(yaaarrgh) and didn't really feel like assembling him at the time, since he got some ****ty damage...

Ahhh thank you, I had been looking for a good open hand. I guess it was your paint that made it look so cool and bionic.

Gorgeous army,

And extra humor points on the "mascot". That should liven up any objective based mission. Especially if you happen to face an Imperial Fist player. Hehe...

Epic.


How long did it take you to do the whole thing? It looks like that was a huge undertaking and is an incredible army.

@Vaktathi
Well, the time in itself is sorta hard to estimate. I assembled them in around one month(on and off during evenings). Then the army stood around, for around 2 years. Then I painted it up in about 3 months(painting evenings etc). Iron Warriors are pretty fast to paint, and by batch painting 5-6 at a time, I did get a good handle on painting them. I did almost a squad per evening, when I had the time. The tanks took a while to do tho, and the Demon prince was quite a hassle to paint, tho looking back, I think I should add some more warning stripes to him. But in working days, I guess it could be done, from bits to fininshed) in around a 3-4 weeks.

Cheers

Love em lots Chrono, seen them over on B&C previously but you can never see enough of an excellently paint IW army can you :)

That reminds me I've a 1500pt IW army to plan for some Dark Angel humiliation next week.

You planning to add and LaTd/Traitor Guard to your IW? Seems quite popular for IW themed support infantry lately.
