Default My first and Second Squad of Iron Warriors

I have been playing for years (over ten) and have never completed a fully painted army.

The closest army I have to being fully painted are my Iron Warriors. Which I started way before the current rules and they have no obliterators or Heavy Support choices, go figure.

I am the first to conceed that I am no great painter, but I have never posted any of my stuff before, so here you go

Here is my first squad




I am in the process of converting to old style predator tanks into Iron Warrior tanks, those will be posted later

I think you need to water down your paints. It my just be the camera, but it does look rather thick. Especially on the champion.

I actually painted these particular models years ago, I just based them last night, I have about 18 models to paint to finish up the army and three tanks.

I will be posting more later

Yeah the I painted the chain mail gold to get some type of contrast with the iron look, when it comes to Iron Warriors they are all black, gold, and metal. There is not much to them.

The only paints I use are

Shinning gold
Bolt gun metal
Chaos black
armour wash
codex grey
graveyard earth
brass
and various colors for the faces and hair

pretty simple really, which is also a good way to describe my painting skills, I am going to try some black ink on some of the other models

Amu other Iron Warrior guys, I would love to hear your method of painting these madmen

They're good, you just need to Ink Wash here and there, namely the flesh.
