Daemons of the ruinstorm. Concept. Part2.

This is the continuation of the first concept sketch.

 Even if I think it comes somewhat close to the concept I am still unsure about the “design”. The idea is to make something that looks like it could work with most generic daemon themes, but I am afraid that it will end up without character, if that makes sense.

In any case, I will paint it up before I will make up my mind. 

Haven’t decided on a color scheme yet. But  pale, gory and with rusty chains is some of the elements I want to incorporate.

Iron Warriors. Armored Breakthrough list. 3000p


“From iron cometh strength! From strength cometh will! From will cometh faith! From faith cometh honour! From honour cometh iron!”

I am pleased that I finally have finished my armored breakthrough list.

This list draws a lot of inspiration from the books and stories from Tallarn. And the massive offensive Iron Warriors made on this backwater planet.

It is also a list that allowed me to combine things that I love, terminators, dreadnoughts and Tank.

I see this very much as a first version of this concept. There is plenty room for improvement but as it stands I think it is an ok list.

For me it is a very untested concept and I need to run this list a couple of times before I will start to make changes to it.

However, I am still planning on expanding this list to 3500p so that I can run this theme on the next AJAX2 event here in Sweden (http://dirtyk.se/events/ajax).

How to expand the list is a little up in the air at the moment. There is 3 possible roads that I am leaning toward.

1. Add a knight of some sort. This might not be in line with what you would expect in an armored breakthrough list. But I feel it is in line with the Tallarn inspiration. Obviously a titan would be spot on, but that will not be possible before the summer. The Tallarn stories features large walkers as well as mechanicum. A knight would fill that role perfectly in my opinion.

2. Add a shadow sword. A large tank in a tank list? If that doesn’t make sense nothing will. The shadow sword is mentioned throughout the Tallarn stories so it would be in tune with the lore. And the fact that the Torrmentor (Perturabo’s own ride) is a modified shadow sword, there is nothing to not like about it.

3. More of everything. More predators, more sicarans, more medusas. This makes a whole lot of sense from a list or game perspective. It feels like the more boring option to be honest. More of the same. But it would probably be healthy for the overall preference.


What option I decided to go with is something I need to figure out in the coming weeks, if I will be able to finish the list for the event.

So, enough talk here is the list and army show case.


Iron Warriors, Spirit of Tallarn.

Horus Heresy. Iron Warriors. Predators. Update.

The armored breakthrough list is almost done. I have some terminators that need some attention.

 But I also decided to brush up my already painted predators. 

Nothing to crazy. I love these old models, much because I have had them since I started 40k back in 2th edition. They are poorly built, painted a thousand times and looks kind of wired. But I love them. 

The true veterans of my legion. They have been through hundreds of battles, been holding the line, stormed ahead and died horribly on a “few” occasions ;) . 

There was never a question if they would form the foundation of my Tallarn inspired armored breakthrough list. The list would simply not exist without them.

Horus Heresy. Iron Warriors. Spartan Assault Tank. Part1.

Four months ago I gifted my iron warriors spartan to my world eaters. I don’t regret doing this. But I have since then missed this iconic battle tank within my favorite legion. 

So to correct this loss I bought a new one for my brothers of steel.  

The process of painting up this tank is very much the same as with the command barrage for my necrons. With the difference that I have a red/brown undercoat.

Necrons. Catacomb command barge. Conversion. Part3.

So far the painting process is quite straight forward. The washing of the model is no different.

Here I wash the model with Agrax earthshade. I try to imagine that the light is coming directly above the model. That means that I try to go light with the wash on the top surfaces and heavier at the bottom. Wipe of some of the pools and some on the bigger panels.  

I tend to use the wash, not only to bring shade but also texture and striping.

Necrons. Catacomb command barge. Conversion. Part2.

So, I thought I could make a step by step tutorial on how I paint up my necrons after a couple of requests.

There is nothing complicated about this process and it is not a secret :) .

So for today I first based the model by first spray black then white and finally some rust brown/red.

Next I dry brushed the metal parts with a darker silver, ending up like this.

This is where I end the model tonight. Hopefully I will find some time to paint the next step tomorrow :) .
