Iron Golem – Part 2

Of course, angry dwarves and hulking ogres are all very well but somebody still has to do all the legwork, and that means if my Iron Golem warband are going to carve out a reputation in the brutal hinterlands of the Bloodwind Spoil I’ll need a few Iron Legionaries to fill out the ranks.

I love the look of the big, heavy shields carried by the Legionaries, they look grim, brutal and unyielding. Imagine lugging that around all day!

For the third one however I decided to throw in a bola, as opposed to the other option on the kit – a second hammer, to give the group a bit of range and visual dynamism.

Grouped together I think they look even more uncompromising and forbidding – but then, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned on many occasions, I’m a sucker for a phalanx! Come home with your shield or on it…

With these done I just have three more Iron Golem to tackle, whilst the Untamed Beasts are likewise close to completion, so I’ll be aiming to keep my focus on Warcry for the next few weeks and get everything wrapped up.

Until now I’ve manfully resisted painting anything for Warcry, at least until I’d managed to clear some of the more pressing projects from my desk, but I always knew I wasn’t going to be able to hold it off forever. Thus I’ve dipped my toe into the murky waters of the Bloodwind Spoil and tackled one of my favourite of the Iron Golems, the diminutive yet fearsome Armator.

Rather than the ash grey skin of the studio models I decided to go for a ruddy complexion not dissimilar to that which I used for my Necromanda Goliaths. Indeed there’s a strong similarity between the two groups, both being forge-workers and metalsmiths with a “might makes right” attitude and an appreciation for a bulging bicep or two. Of course now I’m tempted to recruit a few more Goliaths into my Necromanda collection – you can never have too many angry meatheads running around after all!
