Painting Oath: July – Iron Hands HURRAH!
This month I have only been able to finish 1 squad to completion, still enough to complete my oath, but sadly not up to par with my progress thus far. I have a second unit of Black Knights which are some 60-70% complete, but alas I wasn’t able to finish it before the start of August.
It had been some time since my Iron Hands have had any love in the painting department, and I chose to rectify that this month! This is the first of the new FW squads I’ve painted and I just love the clunky modified Mark III armour they have!
These guys use my normal recipe for painting Iron Hands (You can read how to paint Iron Hands here), but with a slight twist now I have an airbrush to play with. Rather than the drybrush of Charadon Granite I instead spray a zenith highlight of Vallejo German Grey.
As for next month, I of course have the Black Knights partially complete which gives me a decent head start. But I also have another 10 Iron Hands and a small gaggle of Inquisitor 28 characters that are itching to get painted… oh and my Imperial Fists! Damn you hobby magpie!
