Iron Warriors and Penal Legion Test

For the first time in quite a long while, a new codex has really gotten my hobby juices perkyelatin! I think the new Chaos Space Marine codex is fantastic, and I decided to try doing a quick Iron Warrior test for a possible new army. Back when I was living in New Hampshire and gaming at the Game Castle on a regular basis, I had a complete Iron Warriors army that I played quite a few games with. I've since gotten rid of the army, but I think I'll do up a " Mk II " version with all new models and groovy cork/lava bases.

I also painted up a "Penal Legion" test for my possible Iron Painter entry. It's mostly done with airbrushing, and I think I'm on the right track. Could make a cool supplement to my Krieg army as prisoners pushed out in front of guns...

I realize the orange fatigues might be more in keeping with a Department of Corrections type modern day outfit, but hey, it's evocative of a prisoner nonetheless. I do realize this isn't fully highlighted and shaded, but it's a promising start nonetheless....

Regardless, comments and criticisms are most welcome.

Avenging Sons Dreadnought COMPLETE

   Well, after trying a few Tau schemes and not finding one I liked AND could be painted fairly fast, I've decided to make part of my overall Avenging Sons project my choice for the upcoming Iron Painter. Here's the list I'm currently thinking of:

Chaplain in Terminator Armor
8x Assault Terminators
2 squads of 10x Tactical Marines
Stormtalon Gunship

That's 30 models on the nose (the minimum for Iron Painter) and is itself a legal list, again as Iron Painter stipulates. In the meantime, I'm going to paint the remainder of the army so that when Iron Painter is done, I'll have a 1750 point army fully painted and ready for the table.

As always thanks for checking it out- coming up next will either be a small Scout squad or a Land Raider Redeemer...
