The Flesh Is Weak

Happy new year all, Bristles here with a little sneak peak at what I’ve been up to lately!

I’m a big fan of the Horus Heresy book series and have read nearly all the main books and one legion has always stood out for me, one legion has always captured my imagination and that’s the Iron 10th, the Iron Hands. 

I’ve also been desperately trying to avoid collecting the wonderful new Primaris marines as I think they are superb. 

So basically I failed on that and decided to do a 2k point Primaris only list to ‘scratch that itch’. 

As I’d already written my list and decided on what units I wanted it was rather easy to not get carried away buying stuff on a whim, but as I wasn’t going to be getting masses of models I wanted to make each unit distinctly more ‘Iron 10th’ than just a paint scheme. 

I scouted around a bit and got some pretty cool Bionics from Anvil Industries and Luko Dakka put me onto the idea of Skitarii heads for mech style heads so here’s what I’ve built and painted so far.....

I’m having a real hoot painting these guys - hopefully it shows!

I intend to be running 1k of them at a doubles tourney next month so will keep you posted with how they perform!

Thanks for reading and, until next time, happy hobbying!



  1. Those are some lovely painted models. Very nice.

  2. Tom mate, they look awesome, the right amount of bionics and love the Ad Mech Head, and good use of the ‘terminator’ SM head. Nice!

    1. Hah thanks, took me ages to dig that head out - I knew it was somewhere!

  3. Great stuff bud, really like the dread weapons and the head swaps. Good luck with getting finished for the event.
