Horus Heresy: Iron Hands Autek Mor & The 'Retro Father' By Hellstrom

Greetings all! The tides of iron march onward in the Emperors name! Having ordered quite a large number of miniatures I have been busy working out a 1500-1750 points list as a guide. While it has been fun getting back into the hobby and building what takes my fancy, I really wanted a focus of some sort and nothing quite does it like a army list.

I have a real fondness for the Iron Fathers, so much so that I think I have around 4-5 of them, with respective servitor bodyguards. Naturally I do have some robots on the way to take advantage of the cortex controllers, but that is way in the future. Above is the finished 'Retro Father' I showed off in my first post. While he was more or less finished in the last post, I really wanted to get the transfers on for effect, it is also fun to point out, that the addition of a small amount  of brass really makes the miniatures stand out. I have also tried to match the base to DiStudio's Night Lords army, to give some form of narrative.

The overall leader of my starter force will be Autek Mor, and while from a fluff perspective he was not on Isstvaan, he is simply too good a choice not to take, until I get my Ferrus Manus done. I suppose that the first game narrative game I play could be a boarding action of some sort...

While these are the only two miniatures I have fully complete, I have a whole host of infantry and tanks in various stages of paint or construction, probably enough to make a 3500 point army. A long road but one with focus, perhaps if I remember, above is a the initial lot of Iron Hands being drafted for the war.

Thanks for reading,

The 14th Legion
