Re: Tuatara and his Iron Warriors - June done

OK then, second half of the list. I have a list that is subject to change at this stage, because I need to get permission from 'er indoors (some of our older Brits may get that reference):

Heavy Support - Chaos Predator with Lascannon and Lascannon Sponsons. This is my July commitment, photo earlier in this thread.

Heavy Support - Chaos Landraider. This is one I purchased second hand, but need to strip back and repaint because it is a hell of a mess. - August

Elite - 5 x Possessed. I understand they are not very well regarded, but I love the models. - August

Fast Attack - 6 x Chaos Bikers, Mark of Khorne and one flamer on one of the guys. - September

Fast Attack - Helldrake with Bale Flamer. - October

Fast Attack - Helldrake with Hades Autocannon - November

The last three may be swapped out for a few different items, depending on finances. I have a Daemon Prince that I want to pull apart and use wings, arms and head to convert a Daemon Prince out of a Hellbrute. I also have another unit of CSM that I need to paint up, so they may come in as well. Hope that is OK with the rules.

Here is the predator completed. I am terrible at lenses, so please be gentle with me :)

Will upload August pic of bikes later on today.

I think the lenses look good. Maybe just need a red wash and gloss varnish to complete the effwct. And those hazard stripes look awesome. How did you get them so straight? Also, tye verdigris really adds a lot to the model. Just that little detail that made me stop and double take.

Thanks for that. I'll do what you suggest about the lenses. Much appreciated. As for the hazard stripes? Masking tape. And the verdigris, the GW technical paints are a great addition to the range.



Anywho folks, here is my August commitment. 6 Chaos bikes. 2 will have metaguns and the Champion with have a Chainfist (which looks disturbingly like a powerfist at this stage, but I need to modify it). Also looking to give him a combi-melta (guess what this squads job is). They will also have the Mark of Khorne.

Looking great! I love the bases! They really tie in well with the hazard stripes. Keep up the great work and keep them coming! Iron sharpens Iron!

The predator really good. I never thought of putting stripes on the front tread housing like that. It adds a nice accent to it. I may have to try that.

Re: Tuatara and his Iron Warriors - August missed

Well, that's a shame. So busy with other things, have not completed my August commitment. Will work through and post them up when done. Good news though, got my hands on 2 second-hand Helldrakes and 5 Chaos Terminators. Picking them up next weekend and will have the repainting of the terminators as my September commitment. Then will do both, yes both, Helldrakes for October as my wife and I head off for a month long vacation to Europe and Canada in November. So I need to finish the challenge before then.

Finally got the bikes done. First pic is an overall shot. Second one is the powerfist converted to a chain fist.

Picking up the Helldrakes on the weekend. Have my work cut out for me to complete them in September, but let's see how that goes. Will post pic after the weekend.

Bikes look awesome. I might have to steal your idea for a chain fist. I like that. Also your basing choice was really good for this army.

Thanks man. I saw the bases at Secret Weapon Miniatures and just knew they would be the right ones.
