build: work-in-progress: iron warriors, pt. 5

Been awhile since I updated this here thread. I could blather on about work, medical problems, potty training two-year-olds and all kinds of other crap, but you don't care. You're just here for the pictures. ;)

So, without further ado... (all clickable for zoomed in versions)

Chelonian I: Rhino transport of squad Aerugo

Fornax and Chelonian III

I've got one more "Chelonian III" style Rhino to build for the second "Plague Marine" squad. The original plan was to have a second "Fornax" style Rhino as well, but I'm scaling back my list quite a bit. I'm currently thinking that if I expand the list later it'll probably be with a Warsmith in a Land Raider.

Was fortunate enough to be able to spend a chunk of yesterday hanging out at the local Games Workshop mucking about with a test model. It's not bad for a first try, but I've got a few other ideas I need to try before I finalize the theme and buckle down to start painting troops en masse.

Iron Warrior: paint test 1

The pic's a little dark, but you can see the jist of what I was going for. I'll try to get better lighting for the next test model and re-snap this one at the same time.

As I write all this, I realize I've been remiss in posting my updated plans Iron Warriors. Suffice it to say, they've grown beyond the meager 400 points of Combat Patrol to a full-fledged list. It grew to 2500 points, but I'm in the midst of scaling it back down to a more manageable, and less costly, 1500-1750 list. As soon as I finalize it, I'll be sure to post it up so you can see where this is going.

As always, questions, comments and criticism welcome.
