Power Armoured Paint: Black Reach Dreadnought

 Welcome back to the Vault once more! Hobby time has been 40K focused over the weekend having an enjoyed a Doubles game using the Carcharodons Astra. We used the Tempest of War cards, and I'm really enjoying this format.

I also came across a half finished and mostly forgotten about Dreadnought in the Pile of Promise. I love my Dreddies so I thought it would be fun to finish it up.

Warsmith's Words: Completed Iron Warriors Land Raider

 Welcome back to the Vault! I've had a couple of productive hobby sessions over the last couple of weekends slapping paint onto my Iron Warriors Land Raider. The steel seems a bit blotchy on the close up pictures but I'm happy with it at table top distance.

If you haven't read the original post; this model is a bit of a Frankenstein; the usual tracks and top plate have been replaced with 3D printed parts from Battle Bling. They give the model a great look.

Warsmith's Words: Obliterators

 Welcome back to the Vault! Apologies for the lack of posting recently; I've been suffering with a yucky cold, and haven't had the motivation to blog. I'm well on the road to recovery now, and have enjoyed some D&D with the usual suspects and been building and painting some models.

I've been watching some YouTube videos covering Oldhammer models and paint schemes which have been quite fun to watch, and I nearly pulled some old school minis to paint. However, a level of sense prevailed and I've continued with the Iron Warriors instead.

I like to include "iconic" units in my forces and nothing says "Iron Warriors" more than Obliterators and Artillery. To cover off the first are a pair of Obliterators.

Warsmith's Words: The Mauler Fiend

 Welcome back to the Vault! Hobby time has been somewhat limited this week with Real Life rather rudely intruding, however the gang did play D&D on Friday evening, and I've had a tidy up of the gaming cave which is rather therapeutic if nothing else.

I thought I'd share another unit for the Iron Warriors I completed some time ago. I like my armies to feature iconic units, and for Iron Warriors that's got to include Daemon Engines, Obliterators and Havoks.

Let's strike something off that list; a fearsome Mauler Fiend Daemon Engine!
