I forgot how epic that banner was if done propperly. And this one is certainly done propperly.

Superb old-skool Iron Warriors, lovely and clean armour, lush green bases... :'-) Well done!

Well, I managed to get the predator and vindicator completed!







Might have gone a little heavy with the mud on the plows but I am pretty happy with how they turned out.

Only 5 marines and 10 termies to go and the project will be complete!

Thanks,

The IW scheme really makes those old-school vehicles look their best.

Great job!

Each one would look good on its own, but all together they are just plain awesome. The heavier panels on the Vindicator are so perfect for that sweet hazard striping.

Awesome work!

Just hit exalt (apparently again!) I'm not surprised I already exalted this thread.

Seriously though every time I see these I'm just a happy guy. You're making the world better with these classic clean minis in a real and meaningful way.

Thank you! I have been pleasantly surprised with them.

Thanks dude! Glad I took the suggestion to make the hazards all go the same way.

I didn't think I'd have this much fun with it, but now i am thinking of eventually doing another old skool project.

That's nice of you to say, glad you are enjoying the project!

This is some excellent old school stuff going on here. I actually like the look of the dirty bulldozer blades. I think it looks quite good. I think the only reason the dirt may look heavy is because the rest of the tank is so clean. Might need to get those guys a little dirty as well!

You have some really great stuff here. Keep it up.

Finished the last 5 chaos marines! I am so happy to be finished with the basic infantry.



Here's an army shot, haven't done one in a while. Really pleased with how it shaped up so far.



And here they are, the last 10 models to complete the army. This has been a fun project, but I will be very satisfied once it is over.



Wish me luck!




Thanks,

MegaDave

Sad times, where are we going to get our goblin green fix now? Seriously though, that’s one awesome looking army! The terminators should round it off nicely. Now to find your other plogs

Terminators are finished! Wow, what a squad to work through.



All that remains are the decals, have to wait on a few more to come in the mail. Once those are done I can finally get them on the battlefield.



See ya in a few weeks once I get the final touches on them


Thanks,

I concur. Makes me want to flip through the 2nd Ed Codex. Stellar work.

Sweet Terminators, my brother was obsessed with these back in the day! He’d be well jealous! The red on their power weapons is really nice, what colours did you use?

Appreciate it, I've actually thought about getting a copy of the 2nd Ed Codex to display with them.

Thanks, I quite like how the turned out as well. I used Khorne Red as a base, carroburg crimson shade, mephiston red highlights, and then a drybrush of Jokaero Orange and another drybrush of Averland Sunset.

Really impressive - and Goblin Green FTW!

The Iron Warriors are complete! It's been a fun six months, but I am happy to be done!

First up is the full army shot!



Everybody got the original decals, not bad for being 20 years old! (I had some real problems with these, some of the decals were breaking apart from old age!)



Action shot of a predator with an infantry escort.



The Chaos Lord leads his terminator bodyguard and some deranged dreadnoughts into a breach in the enemies lines.



Heavy guns blast the enemy apart.



A sorcerer accompanies some infantry in an assault.



And the angry egg (aka Chaos Squat Warpsmith) leading his Chaos Androids into battle.



Thanks for all the kind words throughout the project, it really helped keep me motivated!

Soooooo awesome. Pewter within, pewter without. Mostly, anyway. Top shelf project. Those army pics are the perfect victory lap.

Closing shot with the Angry Egg and his RT legions is perfect closer

Awesome project, props on pushing through all that hazard striped, goblin green based nostalgia. Here's hoping they get to ransack the table soon.

Thanks, I definitely had times I wasn't in the mood to paint, but it was worth pushing through.

Yeah I have to figure that out myself! I am thinking maybe some 2nd ed inspired terrain...

Well done on finishing the project! I recently finished my own year+ project, and it feels really rewarding, huh?

They have a really strong group look, and the metal looks great close-up too.

Love that you went for early 90s bases!

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

You know, it really does! I'm mostly just happy that I can now paint something other than leadbelcher and retributor gold lol! (My wife is also very happy to get her kitchen table back.)
