Legiones Astartes of the IV legion. The Iron Warriors

Hey guys Sam here.
Wanted to showcase my horus heresy army which I have been working on since selling my salamanders last january. 

So to start off here is my preator. I used a non forgeworld model for this and am pleased with the result. I plan on running him in terminator armour with the warsmith rule and a paragon blade.
Next is my tac squad, I do not like painting tac squads, I have two squads of 10 which I will use but due to the onslauht detachment normally use only one. In game I prefer to use veterans and support squads.
Now onto elites, my favourite part of the army really. I like running dreadnoughts. Lots of them. The ams are magnetised to take all options but my favourite load out is both fists with melta guns in drop pods. 

Also i have two contemptor mortis dreadnoughts. I run one with kheres and one with lascannons.
These are also magnetised and can be taken with fists.
Two terminator squads as well. One with lightning claws, one with chainfist and bolter. I have pinned cyclone missile launchers on the chain fist ones to run tyrant seige terminators until forge world release a model.
I also have three rapier laser destroyers

My current single fast attack is a lightning strike fighter. Usually ran with kraken missiles for anti spartan / knight shooting" I do tend to run with one pair of sunfury to kill marines as well.

Heavy support now
First up my most recent unit. Four castellax battle automina with my centurian praevian. Narik
My fire raptor
My predators which have had converted plasma destroyers. (They are one of my next orders)

My spartan assault tank which usually carries terminators and will be perturabos ride until the shadowsword is aquired.
My iron havocs with lascannons.

Lords of war
I have a typhon heavy seige tank, lascannon sponsons are magnetised as not in picture.
My imperial knight. Magnetised at feet, waist, shoulders and end of gun for modifications and mobility.

Thats all for now folks.
Got perturabo in the post. Looking forward to painting him!
Infantry units to get next
Support squad with melta
Missile launcher havocs
Also getting a few more tanks before I call my army complete
Choosing between
Whirlwind scorpios

Keep a look out on the page for jamies write up about our istaan style game last wednesday involving 10000 points of heresy and three primarchs!!!

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Bruce’s obsession with Warhammer was only revealed to me during our second year of dating. We had been together a long time by then – had even lived together for the majority of that time while at University. And still I didn’t know about this one aspect of Bruce’s nerd-dom. When Bruce and I first began dating I was fully aware of – even besotted by - his nerdy credentials. Together we had played hours of Halo 3 and Mario Kart, swapped manga and even visited the cinema for a solo late night screening of Star Trek. Yet this did not prepare me for what would become one of his main loves in life.
It all started back in 2012. We had been living separately back at our parents’ homes after University – me in Yorkshire, he in Worcester. I would often travel down to visit him and on one such occasion I was told of a new friend Bruce had made through work. Damien. They had apparently bonded when Bruce had taken on old model – a Tyranid Warrior I believe – into his …

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

30K army and first outing for the iron warriors

Hey guys, Sam here wanting to share a little about the progress of my iron warriors and my first heresy game in 6 months!
About a year ago I began collecting a pre-heresy Salamander army. I Enjoyed playing it and took it to a few events. Then I read Angel Exterminatus, Iron Warriors omnibus and Storm of Iron. This persuaded me to abandon the green armoured emperor loving pansies and begin a legion with real metal! in the words of The D: "you can't kill the metal!"

Iron Warriors really appealed to me because they struck me as a legion which could be used for dual purpose as well as having a lot of components that I like. I run these as chaos marines as well as pre heresy marines. Their pragmatism and seige warfare is cool as well as them being undivided, so I can run them with either daemon army :)
So my army as it stands is around 6000 points with Perturabo (next order) and I am nearly at the end of a collection. There are a few units here and there but overall I think I…
