I really want to start painting my chaos now but I don't hav the time.
Iron warriors are showing to be really popular and wouldn't surprise me if their primark was next to be modelled.

Nice to see this log up and running again. It might even motivate me enough to update mine.

Good work so far on the Cataphractii, I liked the red loin cloths though.
Actually I think dark red fits the Iron warriors perfectly, it matches the gold trim the same way a purplish iron matches the yellow hazard stripes.

One thing I notices, you seem to leave your bases plain black or with just some minor stuff on it, any reason for that?

Thanks for the comments everyone.
@SoA: I'd be very (pleasantly) surprised if Perturabo ends up being the next primarch released as I think they're going to make models for the other 3 primarchs int the first HH book first. I could be wrong though.
@Dies Irae: Thanks, I moved during the summer and it took a while to get settled. Moving again in April, but in the meantime there should be fairly regular updates.
I have to say I like theloincloths better in purple as I tend to avoid using more than 2 main colours besides the usual assortment of brown, grey/black and metals. I quite liked the red robes myself on their own, but thought they clashed too much with the rest of the army.
Also, I do base my models, but I tend to take pictures just after I'm done painting them and before I get round to basing.

I see lead people!!!!!!!!!!!!

So far for regular updates. Finished all five with the exception of the shoulder pads and the bases. I think I might have gone a bit too brush happy with the blood after I did the chainfist but it's too late now. Besides, I kind of like it.




Comments and criticism would be very much appreciated.

Cheers, Wolfie

Love em! I am a big fan on metallics as most people here know so to see another all metallics army gives me a warm feeling. Very nice paint job on the lot man, for sure.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

@ Dorn: All of the trimming has been done with a Tin Bitz base highlighted up to 50/50 Tin BItz/Mithril (dunno the new paint names). I didn't really like the gold GW used for IW as it was way too shiny so I dulled it down to tin bitz as it detracts less from the rest of the model.

@ Wraithlord: Apparantly most people seem to think metals are something you either just drybrush on (mostly older gamers) or something that doesn't look as cool as non metallic metal (complete bollocks). At least that's the case round where I live.
I actually like metals as they add a degree of realism to the models (as evidenced by your Sons) that can't be found in GW's (progressively more) cartoonish paint schemes. And if they do use metals (GK's spring to mind) they're to bright and seem to repel any form of dust and grime.
Anyway, that's the end of that rant. :p
Glad I found a painter who appreciates a full metal army on this board.

Cheers, Wolfie

Been a while since I last posted something here. Been quite busy the last year but finally have time to paint again so I thought I'd celebrate with a Heldrake for my IW army.

Still have to do the wings and limbs but the main body's pretty much finished so I thought I'd put up a picture for feedback.

As always C&C would be very much appreciated.

Cheers, Wolfie

The Heldrake is looking pretty damn good!
