Iron Warrior 13th Company

Edited Post. This thread has officially been transformed from a few fun conversion pieces to an entirely new project for Iron Warriors. So far, I have 3 Daemon Princes. 2 that are recent and one that is about 4 years old. The first piece is that last piece of my old army.:( I miss it.

Anyhow, I also have a few converted Obliterators. I figure I'd save some bucks and use my bitz box. I hope that my project encourages people to have fun with their models. I'm a bit rusty, so I hope I can get back on track. For some reason my hand starts to shake. I wonder if its because I haven't worked with green stuff in a while or what.

I have also started adding the main body edition to my army. So far they are under construction for the most part. But for now I have included a lightly converted troop choice of Chaos Space Marines and a Terminator Squad.

If anybody has any conversion ideas feel free to post! :popcorn:

Here are the first 3 Warsmith Lords of the 13th Company. They have all assended to Daemonhood and have all gone to do better things. Therefore, for the most part, they will not be part of my army. Just models for fluff that I may post if I ever have time. Besides, the rules don't really favor them anymore, so I'll be looking at other lord and hero choices.

And here is the last one. I submitted it for the monthly conversion and won with this one. I liked this one because I was able to use more bits. The legs were the hardest idea to find. They are from the Grey Knight dreadnought thing. They are actually arms! The feet from the sphinx. I had to use a lot of green stuff just to fill in the spaces. About half but I think it came out good.

I don't think its all that hard or scary to try and differentiate one's daemon princes.

I like how ambitious your daemon prince conversions are, it's nice to see people tackling big conversions. I'm not crazy about the end results though. I think we have very different aesthetics.

I converted up an Iron Warriors Daemon prince using the original metal DP model, and an orky vehicle 'servo-arm'. I really wanted to keep that as a part of the model, clearly suggesting the progression from the Warsmith to Daemon Prince.

My overall goal was to keep it tight and understated, and of course to make sure the servo-arm remained stable when finished, because everything was pewter, and heavy!

cheers!

Wow! I'm quite jealous. I like that look. You've done enough work on it to be creative. I have to say though Iron Warrior Daemon Princes are just as fun if not more exciting than working on Nurgle Daemon Princes.

Looks awesome Kreuger!

There's just something about my second Daemon Prince I just don't like. Maybe the proportions of the legs and body. I know I dislike the face. I'm thinking about using a defiler mask. I really recommend those being used on Daemon Princes, I think the monstrous face makes it look too mainstream. But I think I might lose the wings. I don't think they go well in his "long" like frame.

Obliteration

Just wanted to show you, one of the cheapest ways of making obliterators. I decided to first do an obliterator with a regular no good, old space marine terminator I had in my bits box. As you can see, you can still make a convincing and in my opinion better version of the bulky and boring looking obliterators that Gamesworkshop decided to keep for some reason.

Not gonna lie the third is pretty much crap. I needed to use up my green stuff because it was getting pretty hard. I'll probably cut the rocket launcher and change the power fist a little bit.

Fluff wise, I will probably post stories about loyalist terminators being infected by the obliterator virus and being controlled by the one Obliterator that looks chaosy.

Here is my first troop choice. Can't keep away from the Chaos Warrior Heads. I don't think I have any more though. :wasntme:

I prefer the simple look for Iron Warrior Marines. I also attached bayonets on all their weapons(had to go through my bitz box for 10 of those). The powerfist is from a space marine. It makes the Aspiring Champion look more victorious than creepy. Also, the head of the plasma gun guy is from a space marine kit. The picture doesn't show very well, but its the bionicle eye dude. I think he looks pretty good for an Iron Warrior model.

As far as fluff goes, I'll get back after I name the champion and squad number.

Your daemon princes are wonderful, particularly the second one (where is the head from?)! I also like the way you used chaos knights heads on the troops. Very ironwarrior-esque. Can't wait to see them painted!

Troop Choice 2

I have a squad that I have assembled and primed. I've begun painting it. So far, thats two for squads in my main body. Fluff wise this will be Conrux's squad with Painn and Panicc the twin meltagun weapons men. Painn and Panicc are exactly the same, but I'm thinking about perhaps modeling them with more details, figuring as they are some cool characters in my fluff projects.

Conrux's Squad
