Before normal Space Marines become old news and are swept aside by a torrent of true-scale Primaris-based giants here’s an Iron Hand I converted a couple of years back from the Captain in the Black Reach boxset, and finally got around to painting yesterday.
There’s no story or grand plan behind him, just a model I took a fancy to making and, a long time later, took an equally unexpected fancy to painting.
My freehand skills still leave something to be desired but hopefully its clear enough that here we have a member of the Iron Tenth, grim, relsolute and ready to smite heretics.

He’s cool man. Like a lonely nomadic warrior. Your freehands shites all over mine brother

Thanks man! Dunno on the freehand, I feel there’s still a long way to go but I’m happy to be progressing 🙂

Very cool. Like the power clever (or axe).

Thanks! Yeah, I’ve always really liked the look of that axe, it’s simple and (compared to a lot of weapons in 40k) fairly small, but it looks no less brutal for all that. Got it mixed in with some other bits a while back and I’ve been looking for the right model to use it with ever since.

Nice work on this guy, and the freehand Chapter Icon is ace!

Cheers! Without wishing to sound self-deprecating I’m not sure I’d go as far as saying the icon is ace but my efforts are improving and that’s good enough for me 🙂
