build: work-in-progress: iron warriors, pt. 7

Managed to get "Ferrugo" Squad put together over the weekend and snapped a few pics...

Breaching Squad Ferrugo: counts-as Plague Marines

Iron Aspirant Sikhote: Plague Champion, power fist

Breaching Squad Ferrugo: bolter, flamer, plasma gun

Breaching Squad Ferrugo: bolter, bolter, bolter

Ran into a slight problem in that Phobos pattern bolters don't fit well behind the ForgeWorld breaching shields. The clip gets in the way. At a guess, the Umbra Ferrox would probably work while the Umbra would not. The standard plastic bolters (Godwyn?) fit beautifully, but don't match the rest of my bolter dudes. They're [i]all[/i] packing the Phobos. While my solution isn't ideal, I think it works from a practical and "realistic" stand point.

Breaching Squad "Aerugo" is about halfway assembled and will follow the same pattern. My employment hiatus ends tomorrow so I'm not sure when I'll get back to assembly, but I'm still hoping to have the entire list assembled before Christmas. Wish me luck!


  1. I only see now how beautiful these kits are. Argh, guess I have to order some myself for an assault squad or somethink alike.

  2. Thank you. They really are incredible kits. And other than a little green-stuffing to fix the odd mis-fit neck or arm joint, they mix beautifully with the plastic kits, allowing you to stretch your ForgeWorld dollar.
