Welcome back to the Vault! Since my last post we've had the release of 10th edition, and I've spent a fair amount of time building the shiny new models in the Leviathan box. That's an awful lot more models added to the Pile of Promise.
I've played a couple of games with the new rules, and they are OK; some stuff I like and some changes which just leaving me shaking my head wondering what the hell the designers were thinking.
I've got a 10th ed tournament in a couple of weekends which should be a lot of fun, and a good opportunity to get some familiarity with the rules. The Iron Warriors will be in attendance, although I still haven't settled on a list.
Painting wise I've butterflied around a few projects. First up is an Iron Warriors Terminator Lord:
I've also painted a Whirlwind Scorpius which is a pretty cool looking model. I started this model before the 10e rules dropped and I very nearly didn't bother to finish painting it; GW have taken the utterly baffling decision to move the Heresy models to Legends meaning their rules and points values become deprecated and ultimately non-playable.
However following true Iron Warriors spirit I decided to finish the job and then have a bloody good moan about it. It will see some table top use over the coming few months.
I *should* be painting some extra models for the tournament list (including a squad of termies packing power fists and chain fists), but I have been avoiding painting armour trim. Terrain time!
Imperial Bunker (from the Wall of Martyrs range I think).
And finally a broken Aquila piece (which came in a set with some other scatter bits):
