So I started a blog..

Alright.. im at work & bored.
What else was I supposed to do?

Since I dont have anything interesting or exciting on hand.. ill re-post some exerpts from my Iron Lords modelling diary on

I have been working on this army for the best part of a year now.. growing, re-modelling & re-defining.
I have a few pictures of semi painted models (please excuse the photos.. im a painter not a photographer!), all slightly dated now.. but hopefully this will spur me on to keep painting them (sooo much silver!) & taking photos!
Ive worked out some of the fluff for these guys.. maybe one day ill write it all down, but the short version is, they split from the iron warriors due to idealogical differences.. ie they hate 'chaos' & see mutation as a revolting weakness. All mutations suffered are removed & replaced with bionics.
They see machines as sacred tools & beleive that a combination of warp energy & machines will pave the way to mankinds ultimate salvation..
Anyway on with the pics!
Ill start with my converted lord..
Arm swap, backpack glued ontop of the termie armour for the servoa arm & sculpted a termie shoulder pad into an iron lords icon.

Forgeworld iron warriors dread.. I got it purely for the lascannon!
It has had all the detail work done since these photos were taken & is currently in the golden demon finals for 40k vehicle!

& a groups shot of some troops..

I have since done work on more troops, havocs, a defiler, 3 predators, 3 vindicators, raptors, terminators, a landraider, a chirurgien & my favourites.. a squad of heavily converted veterans (iron hands parts, forgeworld iron armour, forgeworld bolters are a few of the highlights)..
I am also working on casting my own bases for them (except I ran out of latex for the mold!).
I also like the idea of them pressing large formations of IG renegnades ahead of them as meatshields.. which leads to my next modelling diary which is due to start soon.
I have the models, the parts are in the mail..  {edit: they are now in a neatly organised box in my cupboard.. steel legion models are not fun to convert!}
so that was my first post.. ill dig up some others (including painted tanks & some WIP troops etc) after lunch
