40K (Heresy era) 30K Iron Warriors.

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.

Cataphractii 3

I’ve started the first of my MkIII Tactical Marines.

The bases are from Dragon Forge Design and the bionics are from Anvil Industry.

A few hours painting and they now look like this:

Iron Warrior Tactical Marines 1

I made the base for this Terminator (whilst waiting for some more to arrive from Dragon Forge).

Tyrant Siege Terminator

I’m making the 2 Warlords from book 3 – Extermination – Kyr Vhalen and Erasmus Golg.

Here’s the start of Vhalen.

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.

March 2016.

My local club is running a 750pt league. Here’s my army for the first few games.

750pts Iron Warriors 1

Forgelord, reinforced Tactical Squad, Contemptor Dreadnought and a Medusa.


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:

Perturabo sneak peek

So Proturbo’s use might be short lived! Still a great miniature.

Other additions:

This project will take a while but I’ll update things as I go.
