My 2nd Wargamer AU Diary, my Iron Hands Space Marines

This is the link for my Iron Hands painting diary.  This was my second diary, and my aim for this army was to create a Space Marine force that is capable of total drop pod deployment.  This was a bit of an experiment for me because I often see Space Marine armies built along “conventional” lines.  ie, mechanised.  However you very rarely see a Marine army depicted for wargaming in the way that Marines most often fight, and are set up to fight.  That is drop pod deployment.

As I have an interest in Infantry intense armies, this one has 4 tactical squads in it, supported by 4 Dreadnoughts, all in drop pods. For the Dreadnoughts, I chose to use the Forge World Dreadnought drop pod mini.  This was before I know the rules for it, I just didnt want to have my Dreadnoughts deploying in the standard infantry pod.  I’m glad I selected the FW models, because the rules for them are fantastic too!

Again, this army has now grown, and has several more Dreadnoughts, Terminators and more infantry added.  I am currently adding some Rhinos and Landraiders for Transport so they can be a bit more “Conventional”…

      hey Adam, keep an eye on my blog, I’m about to get some more terminators and make some bionics for them, and re-do the custom storm shields I made a short while ago. I’m sure you’ll be able to draw some inspiration from some of the info I post up. thanks for dropping in!
