40K (Heresy era) Iron Warriors.
Iron Within, Iron Without.
Well painting the Heresy era Iron Hands for my good friend has persuaded me to build a 40K/30K army of my own.
Anyone who has seen my favourite Epic Armageddon army will not be surprised to see that I’ve chosen the Iron Warriors.
Perturabo – The Lord of Iron
Such a great miniature!
Here is the first test miniature I’ve painted to get things started – a Cataphractii Terminator.
I’ve started the first of my MkIII Tactical Marines.
A few hours painting and they now look like this:
I made the base for this Terminator (whilst waiting for some more to arrive from Dragon Forge).
I’m making the 2 Warlords from book 3 – Extermination – Kyr Vhalen and Erasmus Golg.
Here’s the start of Vhalen.
And here’s Golg.
Pictures from my first game.
- Kyr Vhalen
- Master of Signal
- 10 man Iron Havoc Support Squad
- 9 man Tyrant Siege Terminator Squad
My Iron Warriors Command Characters (so far):
In keeping with my theme of heavy firepower, I’ve added a Sicaran Venator to the army. All the sponson weapons are magnetised and I can swap between the Lascannons and Heavy Bolters.
A couple of new additions, some Contemptor Dreadnoughts.
The weapons/arms are magnetised.
New additions: Command Squad (still not decided what to do on the banner), Legion Champion, Apothecary and Comms Relay.
A Rhino for the Veteran Squad.
I’ve magnetizes the dozer blade/front spikes.
Another Medusa for the Iron Warriors.
My first Super-heavy Lord of War, a Typhon.
The lascannons and top hatch crew are magnetized.
22nd Feb New Additions.
Heavy Weapon specialists.
Another Warsmith and Command squad in Cataphractii armour.
Iron Warriors Land Raider Proteus (with magnetised top hatch/gunner).
I had a request to photo everything I’ve done so far.
Here it is!
Still on the workbench are 2 Predators, a Shadowsword (to become the Tormentor when Perturabo is available), another Medusa, another AA missile launcher, a Rapier Laser Destroyer and more Tactical Marines.
My local club is running a 750pt league. Here’s my army for the first few games.
4th July – So I bought and painted the Proturbo miniature from HiTech Miniatures to allow me to field Perturabo.
Of course I’ve just seen this image on the net:
So Proturbo’s use might be short lived! Still a great miniature.
This project will take a while but I’ll update things as I go.
