Iron Warriors 30K Destroyers – WiP 2

By | 01/24/2018

We are on a roll with our Horus Heresy era Iron Warriors. A lot more detail has been sorted on the armour and as such the pictures are a bit lighter. Now it is time to start picking out some details.

A less dark image this time.

The eye lenses have a darker red, Crimson Gore I think, followed by a brighter red centre. I might follow that up with a dot of white. The weapons, all from Anvil Industries, seem to need something to indicate they are radiation or chemical weapons. Any thoughts?

Jet pack glow

The glow on the jet packs was done in three stages. Dark blue, light blue and a careful white dry brush over the top. The yellow on the shoulder pads needs weathering and such added but does help break up all the silver.

So what do you think so far? These should distract me for a little while so I don’t start on my #Squaduary stuff, so I don’t start early.

    Looking awesome. Your yellow is really getting smoother, and the blue glow is a nice touch. Adds some interest without being too much.

    Really like this squad. The old school look jump packs are a great choice.

  3. Siph

    Maybe paint the shells with a moot green tip? Chem Rounds.

    Hi Rory, loving this squad! I’m late to the party, 5 years later!

    Could you please tell me which Anvil Miniatures Pistols you used for the Iron Warriors 30K Destroyers – 3, picture? I cannot seem to find them on Anvil’s website. Or what were the guns you converted?
