Default For Ithaka! - Iron Snakes log

Hey guys.

This is the log for the new army I am starting, Iron Snakes. First off, decided to do them as the colour scheme is awesome, the fluff is great and I like the conversions I could do with them.

So far I only have 2 squads, a CC terminator and a tactical squad, and here they are! The tactical squad is still a WiP, but the Terminators are fully finished

The terminators were a pre-painted 2nd hand purchase, so the detail isn't as good because of the paint that was on it before (in Ultramarine colours), but I did the best I could.

+++ Terminator Assault Squad Veii +++

---Group shot ---


---Sergeant with Thunder Hammer and Storm Shield---


I'm not sure whether to repaint his helmet red or not yet...

---Some more individual shots---














Still gotta do a few touch ups here and there were paint has slipped, but will do that alongside finishing off my tactical squad.

If there is one thing I have learnt, it is that basing can make a model truly stand out. This was the first time I ever based a model properly, and it jsut made them look soo much better and more appealing. All in all I'm very happy with them.

And here is a few shots of my WiP tactical squad. I did start these before the Terminators, but I really wanted to paint my first terminator assault squad, so I did them instead

+++ Tactical Squad Orion +++



And the Sergeant---



More to come soon, I hope you like them.


Total points fully painted - 200

Awesome stuff, man. I read Brothers of the Snake and always wanted to paint up some guys based on the book. Anyways, good work, I especially like the freehand. Keep it up!

A couple criticisms, however. First, make sure you get those mould lines, they draw a lot of attention to them and detract from your painting overall. Second, your paints (specifically the whites and blues) look a little thick, this can be easily solved by adding a drop of water or two before you start painting.

I hope this helps!

thanks mate!

Yeah, definately a bit thick, the majority of the free-hand blue was watered down when I finished it off today, but the white should have been watered down, I forgot about that lol.

And yeah, mold lines I always forget. After this squad I'll be making sure to get them
