My first squad of straight marines. Aspiring Champion with a plasma pistol and power fist, marine with a plasma gun, and another marine with an autocannon. All my Iron Warriors have the Iron Warrior torso and shoulder pads.

Thought I would post some pictures of my Iron Warriors I just finished. 10 Havocs. I figure having jump packs during a siege could really be useful. But I did find out that it is really annoying to paint caution stripes on a curved surface. Well 60 more to go.

I put together 30 Early Imperial Roman Legionnaires by Warlord Games. I was a little surprised how small they are (as you can see in the picture below) but the quality and detail was
very good. I was pretty impressed by how easy they are to get off the sprue. I didn't have to use any tools at all and they popped off the sprue without causing any damage to the pieces. I had enough parts to build 3 command models (centurion, signifier, and musician), 17 models with pilums, and 10 with gladius.
Just finished some Rogue Trader terminators. Painted them as Iron Warriors. I went with a dark metallic color instead of the bright silver that is a common color for Iron Warriors. I actually prefer the old Rogue Trader terminators compared to the newer metal or plastic ones.
I decided to paint the warning stripes on the side of all of the shoulder pads to add some color to what really turns out to be a pretty monochrome color scheme. Makes them look a lot better without having to spend a lot of time doing it.
Below is the classic terminator sergeant with the correct arms. Probably my favorite terminator model.
The old school heavy flamer. Really cool looking. I decided to go with two of these in my squad. Not really the most effective weapon but I guess it would make sense for an army that is supposed to be all about laying siege to people.

Ok, so looking back on February it was a pretty good month. I finished an entire army of Chaos Space Marine Black Legion for Warhammer 40k. Not bad for 28 days. Over 2500 points of models and they look pretty good. No vehicles but pretty good.
I didn't finish the dreadnought because I still haven't ordered it from Forge World so I guess that is a pretty good reason why I didn't finish it.
I am looking forward to March but I will probably get almost no painting done this month. I have two term papers due. One on the 14th and one on the 21st so that will just about ruin the rest of the month for me. Gotta love grad school. Anyway probably will get some stuff done. Right now I have 14 terminators almost finished for my Black Legion so these will probably get done next week.
