Horus Heresy: Iron Hands Test Scheme By Hellstrom


Greetings and welcome to my first post here with the 14th Legion! Here are a couple of works in progress of my budding Iron Hands army. I actually have quite a large amount of models already but all of these are in various stages of cleaning and building. I have a decent balance of infantry and while I have some heavy armour, I will be adding the majority of tanks towards the end as these will take longer to get up and running. I will be using the Rites Of War and of course Ferrus Manus in the foreseeable future! 


I decided to use one of my original Rogue Trader Terminators as a Forge Father for nostalgia's sake and I intend to throw a few more old school models in the mix here and there, ultimately though the army will be made up from Forge World's lovely range. Colour wise I am using gun metal over black with a wash of Tamiya Smoke and finished with Dark Tone, some final highlights with chain mail were then applied to the edges. I decided very early on to go the route of metallic, as I find flat black some what boring and wanted a bit of the 'Iron' in the Iron Hands name to show on the models.

So only a brief glimpse into my starter project, but signs of life to counter the Night Lords menace! Stay tuned for more updates soon!

Thanks for reading,

  1. Yessssss! The iron hands return! Time to smash those heretics!

    I would suggest possibly putting a bronze or alternate tone metallic to help break them up slightly, but that's just a personal preference!

    1. Got some bronze paint in the post. My old one had dried out sadly.
