Hi all, it's log time again. This one will be focusing on all things Chaos, both fantasy and 40k. I'll start with my Daemons, here's what I have built so far for the Slaanesh contingent. Obligatory group shot http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0117-1-1.jpg Herald (yes, I know they can't have wings but it's such a nice model) http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0119-1.jpg Daemon princess http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0118-1.jpg Daemon prince http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0120-1.jpg I'm still working on a colour scheme but it shouldn't be too long before I start painting.

kinda makes you wish they did a smaller sophie miniture!


should be interesting though!

Well, I've made a start. http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0131-1.jpg Don't ask me exactly how I did it but it's hormagaunt purple, shaded with liche purple then a mix of hormagaunt purple and kommando khaki (adding more KK to build up highlights) and then adding white. I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out although my photography skills are lacking somewhat.

Lol. Where is the Daemon Princess from? Might get me one of those.

Oh dear, another person entangled in the allure of slaanesh. Khorne will have your head!

Good start, what you planning on next?

Once I've finished the Slaanesh bits, I'll be starting on Khorne. I already have a unit of 19 Bloodletters built, waiting to be sprayed but I've always had a soft spot for the God of excess. After Daemons, I'll probably do a small CSM army and then I'll work on updating my fantasy chaos armies (Slaanesh and Nurgle).

Bit more progress on the herald http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0131-1-1.jpg And a close up on the face http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0133-1.jpg C&C is welcome as always.

Skin looks nice and deep good colour there suits the model.

One critique I have s the hair looks a little flat. How is it in Real life? Is it the pic making it look that way?

Yeah, it is a bit flat at the moment but I'll be shading it with a wash of liche purple so that should sort it out.

Nice dude keep p the good work and get those miniatures painted!;)

alexh
22-05-2008, 10:32
get those miniatures painted!;)

I'll try but I've also got my Imperial Fists to do and my Vampire Counts.

LordKhaine
22-05-2008, 20:51
imperial fists? are those the ones tht lost miserably to the crimson fists? :P

25-05-2008, 16:53
Update time (finally). After seeing the new washes in action, I've decided to leave the daemons until I get my own. So, I bought a CSM battleforce last week as most of the regulars and staff at GW Middlesbrough are starting completely new armies for the new edition of 40k. I decided upon Iron warriors, Here's a WIP pic of the Khorne Berzerkers http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0152.jpg I still need to do the brass details and the gloves but I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

Nicho
25-05-2008, 18:55
Heh, some nice daemon prince's you have there man. Should bring them down the shop to wind Gary up ;)

alexh
25-05-2008, 18:57
He's already seen them, I asked him if I could use them and he was ok.

Here's a better pic of some of the berzerkers. http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0156.jpg still WIP but nearly finished.

I've just finished building my Terminator Lord http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0163.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0161.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0162.jpg Enjoy.

LordKhaine
26-05-2008, 18:41
if your doing iron warriors i think your lord needs a servo arm or something like that, need to be more mech if ya get me old man

you could take awake his spike rack and i have a spare servo harness, maybe even two if you want them

alexh
26-05-2008, 19:29
I'll think about that Ben, I am getting the Warsmith though.

Nicho
26-05-2008, 19:51
Lord looks cool Alex, almost as good as mine :P. Really like the axe you've made for him :D

LordKhaine
26-05-2008, 21:29
want me to bring the servo harness to veterans night?

and what you should do, is stick the harness onto the warsmith, and use the servo arm from the warsmiths back pack and stick it on the terminator, that way you would have a unique tech looking warsmith, and a cool looking tech chaos terminator

iron within, iron without!

alexh
26-05-2008, 21:44
I'll probs be in the shop tomorrow afternoon so bring it then. BTW, how many bases do you need?

Zap Branigan!
26-05-2008, 21:54
Alex man ya turning into blog king :) i do like iron warriors and the new inks are amazing for them.

Its that your doing the rival army to imperial fists, like we'll have to play some trench/siege/apocalpse game of death when i get that board done with the FW trenchs.

You should stick some IF helmets and broken bits on the bases to show off thar their bitter rivals :).

alexh
27-05-2008, 17:04
I've been working on my Terminator Lord this afternoon, here's a couple of WIP pics of him http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0161-1.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0162-1.jpg Unfortunately, I had to use the flash so it's a bit shiny but the armour is the same as the Berzerkers. I think the hazard stripes need tidying up a bit and a couple of bits need doing but it's very nearly finished. Let me know what you think.

LordKhaine
27-05-2008, 17:23
I'll probs be in the shop tomorrow afternoon so bring it then. BTW, how many bases do you need?

if your down thursday i will bring them down then, or if you will be down tomorrow after 3 i could just bring them tomorrow

got to work thursday so i wont be down till like..late, but i may have food for you fatties

dont worry about bases, i can sort that out

alexh
27-05-2008, 17:26

It's about time, I thought I was on a diet. bring drinks as well :D:D

27-05-2008, 20:53
Good lad ben and alex like the lord but he needs an imperial fist head on his base.

IanR
27-05-2008, 22:16
looking good alex, not sure about stripes on shoulder tho

will bring my camera down on thursday see if we can get some decent pics

alexh
28-05-2008, 00:21
Cheers Ian. The stripes actually look better than in the pic (I think the angle is making them look wierd).

alexh
28-05-2008, 00:31
Here's some better piccies of the lord http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0165.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0164.jpg He'll be finished tomorrow.

29-05-2008, 18:08
Looking good so far.

I can't wait to see the finished Lord. :D

alexh
29-05-2008, 21:37
Didn't get much of anything done today due to my mail order not coming today. However, I need to get my thinking cap on as I was given this crazy contraption by Lordkhaine http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0167.jpg he thought I could use it as kind of a daemonic mount for a lord.

LordKhaine
29-05-2008, 22:19
yeah, you know you love us for giving you that, what ever that thingy is :confused:

and you know that it will just look ace when you get round to doing something with it!

alexh
29-05-2008, 22:31
and you know that it will just look ace when you get round to doing something with it!

Well, I've just ordered a terminator lord torso (amongst other things) to make a start with it. I should be able to do something:confused: at the weekend.

LordKhaine
29-05-2008, 23:05
terminator lord torso eyyy lol

god knows wa equipment you could give him though

you could give him a really big weapong and count it as a daemon weapon

or something similar and this could actually be a Iron warrior daemon prince

alexh
29-05-2008, 23:30
Daemon prince eh? I like where you are taking me.

LordKhaine
30-05-2008, 05:39
aye, some kind of daemon-spider-centaur-mechanical-thingy

and imagination that only an Iron Warrior can have

"you know what i want, i want some big friggen legs, no wait, make that six"

such is the iron warriors way

alexh
30-05-2008, 06:31
"you know what i want, i want some big friggen legs, no wait, make that six"

such is the iron warriors way

My thoughts exactly, Chaos lord points at a Defiler and says to Dark Mechanicus "make me look like that dammit!"

Zap Branigan!
30-05-2008, 19:52
I might have just the thing...?

alexh
31-05-2008, 17:56
Update time again. I basecoated a load of chaos marines today using the new spray gun (It's so easy) here are the results. Chosen with melta guns http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0001-1.jpg chosen aspiring champion http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0002.jpg chosen with BP/CCW http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0003-1.jpg havoc squad http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0005.jpg

alexh
31-05-2008, 18:03
Apologies for the blurred pic of the havocs. Warsmith http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0006.jpg and finally, a comparison between brushing and spraying http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0007.jpg the aspiring champion was painted with a brush and the icon bearer was sprayed. I will definitely be investing in one of the mew spray gun's (I know it's just a badger underneath but the GW one is only 6 more and it will cost that to go to the nearest shop I know that stocks them).

alexh
01-06-2008, 08:34
I finished my Warsmith last night http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0011.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0012.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0013.jpg And my Havoc squad http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0014.jpg just the bases to do now although, I might give the blue bits a wash with Asurmen Blue next time I'm in GW. What do you think?

Edit: dammit, I just realised I forgot to paint the skulls on the aspiring champion's helmet.

Nicho
01-06-2008, 10:19
Warsmiths lookin cool alex, will have to get a look at him when im down the shop later :D

Oh and those chevrons look awesome man

alexh
02-06-2008, 13:03
I've now finished a squad of chosen (apart from the face of the one 2nd from the left in the 1st pic and a wash on the ammo pouches as I don't have the colours to hand). Here they are http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0001-1-1.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0006-1.jpg and a couple of pics of the aspiring champion http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0002-1.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0003-1-1.jpg Next up will be either a Vindicator or a squad of marines I haven't decided yet - what would you like to see?

LordKhaine
02-06-2008, 17:36
looking good so far old man

i would have to say, vindicator, we've seen some marines for now :P

alexh
02-06-2008, 18:02
Okey dokey, vindicator it is.

Nicho
02-06-2008, 19:53

02-06-2008, 20:01
Hey Alexh.

Had been following your IF and was rather enjoying until the updates just kind of peetered out on them.

I've never looked into Iron Warriors before other than that i think their the ones that are pretty big on tanks. After seeing your Warsmith who is full of win I need to know moar about them. Also the name Warsmith just screams sheer ******* awesome to me. Anychance of some clearer close up pics on him??

Consider me subbed to this one. Hope you keep this one going :D

EDIT: Forgot to add Vindi baby!!! Damn fine tanks.

alexh
02-06-2008, 20:19
Hey Alexh.

Anychance of some clearer close up pics on him??



I'll see what I can do in the morning. Also, don't worry, I'll be returning to the Fists, I just needed a break from all that yellow!!

LordKhaine
02-06-2008, 21:02
imperial fists, iron warriors

matters not to the crimson fists

your vindicators shall taste lascannon in every game my friend

our bolters shal blot out the son :P

alexh
03-06-2008, 07:11
Here's the close ups of the warsmith http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0006-2.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0007-1.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0008.jpg, Hope that's ok Ocid (and everyone else :)).

alexh
03-06-2008, 07:14
In nature, yellow and black stripes signify danger. It's the same in 40k http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0010.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0012-1.jpg It's not quite finished (but it will be this afternoon).

lol that just made my morning there. I think i may have to siggy that.

Also that Warsmith is sweet as. I always like to have a wee side project while doing my main one at a particular point and once again someone sways my mind from what i was currently going to do.

A few questions if you don't mind answering :) Is a Warsmith just like a Techmarine? Is he your HQ?

Look forward to seing the finished Vindi.

alexh
03-06-2008, 09:09
I have never read the previous codex so I'm not sure about his old rules other than the servo arm granted an extra (power fist) attack. I am using him as a lord with a daemon weapon.

Titan Wolfe
03-06-2008, 13:10
So this is what the Terminator Lord was about and why the "Fists" have ground to a slow march . Wondered what was taking up your time . Have to admit THat looked great and from what I've seen so far the rest gonna look the same .Vindicator heaven by any chance to follow????

alexh
03-06-2008, 21:05
Vindicator is now done, http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0001-2.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0002-2.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0003-2.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0004.jpg Enjoy

the danger stripes on the vindicators dozer blades are just....beautiful

well done old man, there is spirit in your old eyes yet :p

Well, I gotta do something fancy since the rest of the colour scheme is so easy thanks to Badab Black :D

yeah, fancy

will still die first turn :p

I was hoping to have my first 1500 points fully painted by tomorrow but I've just realised that one of the squads isn't even built yet (oops). It'll possibly be done by the weekend though.

alexh
04-06-2008, 09:19
Vanilla black legion? abbadon wont like that lol

It's gotta be the only colour scheme that's easier to paint than Iron warriors :D:D

Titan Wolfe
04-06-2008, 09:40
Why do think I did the Sons of Odin with a metallic finish . Quick easy and effective and with these new inks look as the results you acheived . Hope mine will look as good come saturday .

The Herald is from Freebooter Miniatures, it's the Chaos Succubus.

Ocid
04-06-2008, 19:28
Excellent Vindicator you've got there alex. Now get a linebreaker squad done :D

You also seem to be fairly marching your way through the army if you're going to have 1500 done already

Sweet triple Vindi's are pure awesome. Screams "This 24" is MY domain!!".

Also just want to ask you a quick question. What is the head on your Warsmith?

alexh
04-06-2008, 20:43
Thanks Ash, I'm really pleased with how the Chosen turned out as well.

05-06-2008, 00:19
well do know the head is attached to the body.. and other than gw direct. the fig can he a little hard to get at times..

alexh
05-06-2008, 07:36
There's a similar head in the Iron Warriors conversion pack http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=Individual&code=99060102120&orignav=10, I know it's 8 but the torsos look just as good on loyalist marines.

Nothing a little sawing, fileing and GS can't fix. But as i said it seems like a waste .

Those torsos look rather nice. I might pick up that conversion kit at some point and use them for an honour guard. Nice tip. If i do pick it up feel free to pinch the guns and the other heads.

However i was looking at using one of the Chaos Termie Lord heads instead and just cutting off the chaosy bits as the general head looks very similar to warsmith one. Gah! Decisions Decisions. I got to stop looking at Plogs.

alexh
06-06-2008, 15:20
Time for another update, I've nearly finished my first squad of normal marines http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0009.jpg I've also made a start on my defiler and a rhino (no pics yet as they are only basecoated). Here's something I aquired yesterday (I love blue cheese) http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0011-1.jpg Enjoy.

08-06-2008, 08:22
It's update time again, the defiler is coming along nicely http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0012-2.jpg also, I couldn't help myself http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0015.jpg I'm thinking about using fantasy chaos warrior heads on them. These crazies found their way into my collection as well yesterday http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0016.jpg so I'll be having fun with pink later. Enjoy

The terminators look good alex, those heads make them look very iron warriorish. The squads of regular marines look cool.

alexh
08-06-2008, 14:09
Thanks, that's what I thought. I'm not really a fan of the chaos terminator heads, they look too much like elephants to me with those ridiculously huge horns.

LordKhaine
08-06-2008, 16:45
omg old chaos warrior heads

i never thought of using them on terminators

tbh they look amazing and suite your army tonnes old man!

alexh
08-06-2008, 17:15
Thanks Ben, a shiny peanut to you for recognising the heads. I've just finished my defiler so here it is http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0018.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0020.jpg Enjoy.

Edit: apologies for the blurred pics, I'll try to get some better ones up later.

08-06-2008, 17:36
Hey alex,right first fing is i only like the current chaos warrior head it got a better scale to it the others look too small.

Also do a better picture of that defiler! the problem is that there is too much going on in the background.

Try getting a lamp a cardboard box sprayed white then it will be nice and clear with one light source.

LordKhaine
08-06-2008, 17:39
woo shiney peanut

and that defiler looks great, really impressed with the hazard lines u do alex

alexh
08-06-2008, 18:06
These should be better http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0021.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0022.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0023.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0024.jpg

The armies coming along very nicely, have you considered giving the mini's a wash with one of the nes gw washes? the black would probably work very well on these.

liking the heads on the termies, wasn't too keen on the originals when i painted them, the minis as a whole seem a bit cluttered so the simple head swap is a good choice.

looking forward to seeing more.

thanks

james

EDIT- new pic whilst i was posting, it looks like you may already be using the washes:)
the eyes on the defiler work well, pretty cool!

Thanks James. Yep, I have been making very good use of Badab Black from the start.

Looks good Alex, the wash takes the immediate brightness off the model, and makes them more kaossy. Mhuhahaha. The defiler looks awesome btw, love the warning stripes.

Ocid
08-06-2008, 19:26
Very cool idea Alex with the old Chaos warrior heads. Simple yet looks very good.

Also just as a tip rather than tacking them on with super glue. Just take a very small piece of blu-tack and use that to try things out.

Zap Branigan!
08-06-2008, 19:45
Much better pictures cheers really like the defiler,so what you doing about the terminator heads?

I'll leave them until tuesday, if you are in the shop, you can have a closer look at them.

Alex like the pink now hurry an do the metal.

alexh
10-06-2008, 09:20
The metal should be done later today, I started it last night but it was too hot to paint.

alexh
10-06-2008, 17:21
I've now done the metal parts of the noise marines http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0023-2.jpg Hopefully, I can get some more work done on them tonight (heat permitting!!).

LordKhaine
10-06-2008, 17:36
now alex, if i was to be honest with you, im not that keen on these guys

the rest of your army is fantastic

but the metal and the pink just dont go for some reason

are you doing the brass/gold trim on them, because maybe that might break them up

danger stripes on the big guns would look great too, but yeah, its just the pink and metal dont go well

but im sure when there finished they will look great

keep it up

alexh
10-06-2008, 17:38
I will be doing brass trim on them but I wasn't thinking about hazard stripes initially, I am now though!

Eddon11
10-06-2008, 19:17
looking good i have to agree with lordkhaine im not too sure but it just the base coat i have faith that by the time you post the next pictures they will look great

Ocid
10-06-2008, 20:28
Well afraid alex i'm going to have to agree with the rest of the guys here. Not really digging the noise marines as they are currently but i'll reserve final judgement until they are finished.

LordKhaine
10-06-2008, 21:18
eee god alex, sounds like im turing people against your irons warriors haha

sorry mate, im sure when you get them done (which knowing you will be in a few hours lol) they will blow us all away :p

alexh
10-06-2008, 21:20
Right, I've added the brass trim and reset & re-washed the pink. http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0032.jpg I think it looks a lot better now, what do you think?

LordKhaine
10-06-2008, 21:21
looks better, i think when the skin is done, and the hazard stripes on that big gun (its official, you have to do it) and then a better picture taken (technology overwhelming you old man? cant keep a steady hand? :p) should look pretty nice and blend in well with your lead pencil warriors :D

alexh
10-06-2008, 21:25
(technology overwhelming you old man? cant keep a steady hand? :p)

I'm still getting the hang of the wifey's camera (it's pink :eek:).

i knew you secretly worshipped slaanesh!!

LordKhaine
10-06-2008, 22:20
see, i knew you would come through

i like that now

the pink is more of a random good then random bad

i think the finishing touch would be the hazard stripes, would just top the model off :D

bet it looks better in person though lol

Titan Wolfe
10-06-2008, 22:42

While taking a break from painting noise marines, I decided to knock up a new aspiring champion for my squad of chosen http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0039.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0040-1.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0041.jpg the servo arm on his backpack counts as a power fist.

tht looks cool, really iron warrior-ish, i like the wire arms :D

Eddon11
11-06-2008, 20:29
loving that left arm sets the model off real good... is this because of that rule that we spotted in the codex the other day haha bit gay if you ask me but a hell of a new aspiring champion

alexh
11-06-2008, 20:53
I just spotted it in a pile of scrap bits and thought it would look cool, plus, I couldn't think of anything else suitable without sculpting an open hand.

Yup, you can expect to see more marines with bionics in the very near future.

Shadowphrakt
13-06-2008, 16:10
Nice dude, that aspiring champion is looking really cool. Will have to shift my lazy **** down to middlesborough someday to give you a game. Have you used all your Iron Warrior heads? because they are some of the nicest space marine helmets I've seen.

alexh
13-06-2008, 16:35
I still have a few heads and torsos left for more marines.

alexh
14-06-2008, 12:44
Not much painting going on at the moment as I spent most of yesterday moving into my new workspace. I will be uploading more pics later though. For now, here's something to wet your appetite http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0016-2-1.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0018-1-1.jpg It was originally intended for my Vostroyans but they are happy enough with a Hellhammer.

Yeah, I've since taken it off there and put it on the front with the chain.

cool looking baneblade my guess this one used to be a imperial fist one haha but yeh looks good cant wait too see it painted silver with that barrel with the hazards haha will look great

15-06-2008, 17:13
It was originally intended for my Vostroyans


my guess this one used to be a imperial fist one

Did your dad never teach you to read? :D:D I made a start on it today, it's been sprayed boltgun metal and had a wash of badab black, I just need to give it a quick drybrush of boltgun and then it's ready for detailing. I am doing the hazard stripes on the dozer blade and possibly on the sponsons.

Zap Branigan!
15-06-2008, 22:26
Hey guys am back from download :) (which was mint!!!!!)

Right then slaanesh marines look mint.

Ass champion looks mint(will steal that arm idea at some piont).

I think the baneblade needs to be more iron warriorish,like stuff to keep it in place so its like a siege weapon(so i dont know chains dug into ground or those hydraulic lifters).Should have an iron warrior tank commander hard wired into the top like that lord your going to make.

Also if ya made it look a bit more static you can make lke army storage crate and siege shells which would also be great objective for 40k games(like your oppenent trying to deny you your siege capablities:).

LordKhaine
15-06-2008, 23:35
oh no! the armoured company has lost a tank, how ever will you manage to fill its place!?!?

:p

i knew you couldnt just get a basic army, had to have one stupid big tank in there somewhere lol

glad to hear that the mask has gone from the front of the barrell, didnt look right at all

need more "mech" stuff on it though, like servo arms on the back or something like that

i agree with rich for the iron warrior commander

alexh
16-06-2008, 07:58
Some great ideas there guys but unfortunately, I've nearly finished painting it. I might do another in the near future but for now, I'm quite happy with the look of it (plus, it was already built when I started adding the chaos bits).

LordKhaine
16-06-2008, 20:33
well what you waiting for old man?

where are the images eh? Eh? EH? :p

After a bit of a break, I'm back. I've been working on the terminators for the last couple of days and they're nearly finished so here's a WIP pic of them http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0026-2.jpg they need the skulls finishing and the bases so I should have them done tonight.

Shadowphrakt
18-06-2008, 19:59
Oh dude! They are absolutely awesome. Well done. They are...awesome. Pure Iron Warriorness.

18-06-2008, 20:04
Cheers man, I'm pleased with them too. I forgot to put this in the last post so here you go, the Baneblade so far http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0027-1.jpg what do you think?

Shadowphrakt
18-06-2008, 20:08
Very spiky. Will ook good once its finished. Theres a guy with an Iron Warrior Baneblade in Edinburgh, and it isn't that good. Pales in comparison to this, even though this is still WIP. Very cool.

Solun Decius
19-06-2008, 10:52
Wow, that last update is really good!
Much better photos than before, great paintjobs and the Champion is looking sweet.
I think the photo is better because you stand further back to get the whole squad. Your single mini photos are probably taken too close for the camera to focus. They might be better if you stand back and then crop out the center of the photo afterwards, rather than trying to get the mini into the whole frame when you take it.
Then again, maybe you figured that out already.
Good stuff!

alexh
19-06-2008, 11:03
Thanks for the comments Solun, yes I had figured it out but I will always welcome advice as I am usually the first person to admit my failings (photography is one of them). I have recently set myself up in a new painting area and I think I can finally take some decent pics as I now have both light and space.

LordKhaine

Yup but I might have to either shorten them or bulk them up a bit. Here's what it looks like so far http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0031-1.jpg If I end up having to shorten the legs, I was thinking about taking the bottom section off.

alexh
20-06-2008, 08:27

One of them will be a Catachan Sentinel chainsaw but I'm not sure about the other one at the moment. I've just spotted a Doombull on my shelf though so he might lose his arms.

im liking that alex. The legs do look mint. Think it will look a bit stumpy if you take them off at the knee - so to speak:) just like gary.....

alexh
20-06-2008, 08:59
He has an arm! http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0034-1.jpg Obviously the arm still needs some work but it's there nonetheless. I'm still unsure what to do about the other arm though, I'm thinking maybe loads of cables to either hard wire him to the legs or make something like the defiler CCW.

Solun Decius
20-06-2008, 10:21
I love that soul grinder style daemon prince. It really starts making sense now after you added the arm. It balances out the size of the legs. Very Iron Warriory too.

21-06-2008, 17:22
I did some more work on my daemon prince today, his right arm is attached but the greenstuff still needs tidying up. It has been decided that the drill arm from the Inquisitor model 'Delphan Gruss' will be perfect so that's sorted. I will be adding cables to the bottom of the torso (where the 3 holes are) and the armpit and also along the back on both sides but enough talking, here are the pics http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0034-2.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0035.jpg http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0036-2.jpg Enjoy.

strong looking force I like your Iron Noise Marines, only comment I have is maybe only post in in focus pictures. Most digital cameras if you push the button down a little ways the camera will focus then push it all the way down and take the pic, a blurry pic will detract from a cool model might as well represent your work appropiately. I wanna see the models with out trouble.

LordKhaine
22-06-2008, 20:46

Wow! These have been a productive few days for you. The rhinos look great and you're getting them done fast too. I'm still shaking at the prospect of having to start painting a model that big (even if it's only a rhino).
It'll be great to see an army shot. It seems you probably have a sizeable force by now.

EDIT: Must give props for the terminators, yay terminators! They look really impressive, and notably excellent are the highlights on the sculls and stuff on the trophy racks!

Thanks for the support so far guys. Solun, don't be put off by the size of the rhino, just get a bigger brush! I'm going down to GW later for a game so I'll take some pics then.

Looking good sunshine .......sweet looking army . The only critisism is you take a bit longer on your hazard stripes on bigger models .........cos to be honest they're a tad wonky .........but they're still one hell of a neat looking army .Will be an avid spectator with you against LordKhaine 's crimson fists .........Thats gonna be good.

Are you talking about the dozer blade? It looks better in person, I think it's cos the blade is slightly curved.

Ooo, Iron Warriors, goody goody. I love the use of the old Chaos Warrior heads for Terminator heads; just that little bit makes them feel more appropriate than a thousand hazard stripes!

You are most welcome. I realise I've been neglecting this log but that's all gonna change now. I'll have updates hopefully later today.

Well, it's been a while but I'm back. I've been working on adding more heavy support choices to the army. Here's a couple of Obliterators http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0037-1-1.jpg a Predator http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0041-2-1.jpg and another Havoc squad http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm202/alexhad/PIC_0042-1.jpg cos Iron Warriors can never have too many lascannons. I've also assembled two more squads of normal CSM's for that all important objective holding so I have plenty to do over the next few weeks.

LordKhaine
10-08-2008, 21:53

and a havoc squad with 4 LASCANNONS! :O eeesh, thats just wrong

Oblits, Predator, Havocs (w/4 lascannons!) ... Iron Warriors it is!
Never underestimate raw fire power for "objective clearing" :D

These look great man. I could never do Iron Warriors because my black and yellow chevrons almost always come out crooked.
