Utterly, utterly amazing army. Fantastic! Well done that man!
holy hell, that is insane!
We snuffed ourselves an angel
We cut her by the wings.
I'm impressed by Photobuckets bandwidth capacity. It's still well within limits so I might just as well post the nex part...
PART III - More Troops!
Disposable Heroes - Roadies
OK, so we got the band, we got the mascot and we got the groupies. What more is needed? Roadies of course! Who else would set up the amps, carry the beer and shoot lascannon? In game terms they are still noise marines, but in terms of painting they have a blue chestplate instead of purple.
The roadie champ. I really like this model. The brand of the beer is... Chaosberg! "Sometimes the best beer in the universe"
The lascannon gunner and a "normal" roadie. The model on the right is propably my favourite model in the entire army. I don't know why but it is just something in his expression. He looks like he is really hung over, has to hurry to get the speaker he's carrying installed... and then some Imperialists tries to stop him and tell him that they play to loud! The look is propably more coincidence then me planning it but I still like it.
The Troopers - CC squad
A close combat squad. I wanted them to be very different from the chosen. The chosen have fancy, elaborate weapons and shiny stuff. Theese guys have improvised weapons and a more grittier look.
The champion and his hound. The enemy just told him that metal is dead and they should get a haircut. He answers with the finger. The advantage with powerfists are that gestures tend to look quite exaggerated and funny...
Close combat marines with improvised weapons. From left to right - A broken bottle, a torn up street sign (the corner of Acacia avenue and Rue morgue) and a baseball bat.
Doom sirens. This was an attempt to paint chrome SENMM. Allthough I'm not sure how well I succeeded with the chrome look, I still liked the look of it and kept it.
The icon. Painted to look like the cover of the Iron Maiden album "Live after death".

Rhino tour bus
Again, I wanted it to look different from the Chosen rhino. The extra armour is crudely welded om steel plates rather then manufactured extra armour. But it does have cool flames!
The top hatch. I noticed how Iron maiden covers were a lot harder to paint then Manowar ones.
The Noise marine version of the Iron Maiden logo. The other door has the tour dates but they look very similar to the chosen ones.
OK. That's all for now. Stay tuned for the final part sometime next week (or possibly this weekend).
Hahaha Its just so COOL! The iron maiden tank is gotta be my favourite!
FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF GOD/NURGLE/TZEENTCH/KHORNE/SLAANESH!
They all look so cool! Its really comical too though, I like the one with the baseball bat. And the finger lifter!
Love the baseball bat marine, and that lascannon is really quite nice. In fact, I've got the bitz, I might just thieve that idea completely ...
Amazing work all over, I quake with anticipation for what else you've got in store for us ...
Superb work, this army gets better and better.
"Chaosberg" - inspired!
A very well executed army that looks cool, an excellent theme, and has humour whilst not looking comical. These guys are turning into one of my fave chaos armies ever. And more Iron Maiden references - class!
Hardly a project log, but good all the same.
The gods of Rock bow to you!
This is the koolest army i have ever seen. And i love it even more because youve done my Two FAvorite bands! (Manowar and Ironmaiden)
Love to see the rest.

Chaosberg, probably the best beer in the Eye of Terror!
Trooper Eddie with Chaos Jack, Roadsign, Life after Death. Make sure you post these pics for Maiden's Christmas Card contest (at their official website)!
Not strictly a Chrismas Card, but you may photoshop some metal greetings on it.
I love that signpost reference. I'm really like how you add in these subtle references among other, not-so subtle ones.
Majestic. In scope. In design. In execution. In-credible.
I thought the noise marine guy with the big pink arm was James Hetfield. Yeah! Yeah-Yeah!
The guy with the bottle looks like Glen Danzig.
Actually, your sky-earth is really great. It reminds me of those crappy blue lights all the small clubs have. Now, if you could only make them change from blue to red over and over again really fast...(insert double base drum in the background).
Oh yeah, sigged.
Incredible... When I read "metal-themed army" I was thinking metal as in metallic... But when I saw that you really did mean true ********** Heavy Metal!!! WOW!!!!!!
Up the Irons!!!

this army is really trve
Nice theme, but why did it had to be manowar? ^^
dude you are a god! To Hell with Slaanesh, I'm gonna worship you.
Seriously though your painting is amazing. I wish that I could do freehand as well as you, oh well, give me time.
keep the photos coming and 'Rock On!' \m/
Of all the thousands of painted minis I have seen during countless hours on the web over the years, these are the best ever. I mean it. I have seen perfection, now nothing can amaze me anymore... I have to stab my eyes out! =)
It is a tragedy that some people eat cheese-flavoured chips in the shower.
