DFG Painting Challenge - These Iron Warrior Havocs. Yeah, I know some folks were looking for the Tervigon, but that is a very special peice and will take some time. For now though, the 14th Black Crusade requires missile launchers, especially with what I have in mind!
dreadclaw conversion is somewhere in the background. I painted the squad to match the vessel and really wanted them to look a little dirty with some Badab Black and Gryphone sepia not cleaned up to lend the idea of rust, dirt and oil, though I did use a lot of mythril on the hard edges (it doesn't look great in pics, but the hard mythril looks great from the table vantage point.)
Here are a few from the squad standing on this beautiful cardboard terrain! The black shoulder pads were done with chardon granite and black wash. It gave them rich depth that sisn't reqiure line highlighting so I left it out there. I may, at some point come back and add some IW decals to them, but first I have to get better at decals, which is what the old guard tanks I picked up are for!
Anyway, let me know what you think of the havocs and please check out the Challenge - maybe you want to get involved!
