Iron Warriors 5th Grand Company
This is where we hold them! This is where we fight! This is where they DIE!!!!!!!!!!
Though I get a project log going on my Iron Warriors on these fourms. This will be marking 10 year of collecting Iron Warriors (17th Nov being the date I started them back in 2001).
I've alway been a big fan of Chaos Marines thanks to John Blanch art work from WD 202/2nd Ed Codex Chaos & have been battle with Chaos for 15 year now. From my second army in 40k being Black Legion, to my Iron Warriors & my Chaos Daemon in 2008.
For the Iron Warriors it all started when 3rd ed came out. One of my friends converted up some really nice Obliterators for his Thasound Son army, before we had the current models we have today. Also gaming wise Obliterators where complete diffrent from the way they are today & your able to take up to 6 in a single unit.
Also back then, Index Astarties where being release in the White Dwarf, given us a wealth of background into some of the famous Chaos Legions & Space Marine Chapter, even with some rules to field these armies. Like White Scar make great use of bikes, but not allow them some other chose with in codex Space Marines. The Index Astartirs also had a lot of cool art work inside as well, for me I really like the art work base on the Iron Warriors.
Since then my Iron Warriors have been battle it out against many oppents, fought in many tournaments & winning some honour from a few player chose award for best army
I though the best way to mark ten year of collecting Iron Warriors would be, to start a brand new army, well my 6th Iron Warrior force. Few of the reason is down to, I'll need to move from the old GW Inks to the current wash which are brillaint (Badab Black wash is the future!!) & also Games Workshop release a lot of cool kits over the years to further convert models which I really enjoy doing, it rare if any that I have out of the box armies, everthing got a conversion in some shape or fourm.
Chaos Marines offer a lot in term of being one of the most convertible (sp) armies out there in the 40k world along with Orks.
With the Iron Warriors I am aim to have the army ready for the Throne of Skulls April tournament down in Warhammer World. Like my IW, ToS April going to mark ten years of attending tournaments as Conflict Scotland 2001 was around April time.
First Iron Squad - Iupatus Proeliator
My test model before starting project - Iron
I've also been trying out the Eavy Metal Medium on stubble. During ToS I ask Nick Bayton (GW Hobby, now events) how he done his which was - Chaos Black, Codex Grey & Scorched Brown.
While I was suggested the Medium when it was shown in the current WD by friend
The Autocannon arm Iron Warriors - Back Pack
I'll be useing the Yellow & Black Hazer strip as spot colour in my Iron Warriors force.
