CODEX : IRON WARRIORS

Why collect an Iron WarrIors army?
The Iron Warriors were the Imperium’s most able-bodied siege troops. Renouncing their allegiance to the Emperor and siding with Horus in a galaxy spanning civil war now known as the Horus Heresy, they took part in some of the most despicable acts of the war, notably the Istvaan V drop site massacres, and the virus bombing of Tallarn. Even though they were pushed back from the gates of the Emperor’s Palace they have continued to wage there war unrepentant of the choices they have made, fueled by hatred and bitterness that has lasted for over ten thousand years. Collecting an Iron Warriors Army is vastly unique from any other Chaos Legion. There is no wall or indomitable citadel they can’t break. They are the masters of the siege, carrying more heavy weapons than any other Chaos Legion and are armed with specialized vehicles and equipment tailored to there way of warfare. The collector is rewarded with a variety of unique units such as Sappers, and Cybernetic Chaos Hounds, to terrible machines of war like the Forge Breaker, Centurions, and the Basilisk. Even the staunchest servant of the Imperium dreads facing an Iron Warrior force. They have two choices; Flee or be ground under their infernal machineries of war.

The creation of the Iron Warriors Minidex started almost two years ago. It has been a long and windy road dealing with codex design; as well as personal challenges. The loss of my Mother to cancer in ‘09, and my Father to a stroke in 2010. I couldn't have completed this project without the help and support of so many. It is to all of you I wish to give my heart felt thanks. To my friends Wayne and Andrew who helped with the initial codex layout. Krug and Cog giving me tons of feedback, and bringing my units to life with your conversions. Janus for running the numbers on unit costs to make sure they were balanced. Phil Bradley for designing the Hobby Section. Klaus, and SonofLoki for your beautiful art, and all the Freebootaz, and Playtesters. Above all I want to thank Crayolasmoker, (Nathan Herron) for standing beside me, and taking over the reigns when the world seemed to be crashed down around me til I was able to pick them back up again. Without your help my dream of an Iron Warrior Fan Dex would have come to an end. Thank You. Iron Within, Iron Without. Axinous, (Chris Miller)

HISTORY OF THE IRON WARRIORS
Back when the Emperor of Mankind still walked among the stars He came upon the world of Olympia, a mountainous world of sheer cliffs and deep river valleys. He reunited with his long lost son Perturabo, finding him in the City-State of Lochos, and gave him the command of the Fourth Legion, which bore their Primarchs’ geneseed. Just like their Primarch the Legion was reputed as being dark and melancholy. Coldly efficient logic and razor sharp intellect. They mastered technology and complex calculations with ease. Expert engineers; It was said that Perturabo himself could match wits with Adeptus Mechanicus Magi, that he could read the schematics of Titans, and talk design theory of warp drive technologies. Perturabo was raised by a man named Dammekos, who was known as the Tyrant of Lochos. He ruled with his City-State with a clenched fist. When the young Perturabo was first found, he spent much time trying to earn the trust and affection of the young Primarch making him a part of his household, and treated him as his son. Perturabo never responded with any warmth towards the man, eventually deposing of the tyrant and bringing Olympia under the light of the Emperor. Dammekos spent the rest of his life trying to marshal support to retake what he felt was his. He never lived to see his dream realized, yet he did create the under current of unrest that would prove to be pivotal later. In command of the Fourth Legion and with the Great Crusade well on the way, the Iron Warriors cut their teeth on the nearby world of Justice Rock laying siege against the heretical Black Judges. Under Perturabo's leadership the Iron Warriors proved to be devastating siege troops gaining the experience he had learned on Olympia, the strategic hold of passes, bridges, and high ground for military security. Siegework proved to be back breaking work. Establishing and expanding trenchlines, protecting artillery positions, and waiting. Waiting until there was a breach in the enemies defenses that could be exploited. Then the Iron Warriors would spill through in the most savage close quaters fighting imaginable. Unfortunately the Iron Warriors were too good at their job. Initially Perturabo and the Fourth Legion were fanatical in their service to the Emperor, volunteering to break the most brutal sieges in the galaxy. Even taking garrison duty when the other Primarchs refused to divide up the strength of there Legions. This led to the Iron Warriors being typecast. Being the natural choice for siege and garrison missions the Iron Warriors were constantly engaged in one campaign after another. Without any time to rest and reorganize, the constant exposure to battle was taking its toll on morale. Perturabo began to resent the missions he was given; and the casual disdain his Legion was treated with. His Iron Warriors mirrored his sentiment. The question lies... How much can one man take, much less a Primarch, before he breaks? He watched as his Legion slowly withered and died from con-

stant combat with no respite in sight. Nothing was ever said of his Legions sacrifices, or there heroic deeds. Yet the other Legions were quick to take the glory and credit that his men died for. Some say it was Rogal Dorn that antagonized his brother Primarch, his vanity like a barb constantly irritating Perturabo, each boast of his superiority like an open wound upon Perurabo's heart. It’s certain when news that Olympia fell to rebellion that Perturabo was devastated. The shame of being the only Primarch whose home world turning its back from the Emperor. What transpired on Olympia has been lost to history. Though it is known that a horrible massacre happened against the populace of the planet, that the blood of innocents dripped from the Iron Warriors hands. In the aftermath of such atrocities is when Perturabo received word of Horus's rebellion. By the order of the Emperor the Iron Warriors were to join six other Legions to punish the Traitor Horus and his Legion,along with those who already sided with him: Angron’s World Eaters, Fulgrim's Emperors Children, and Mortarion’s Death Guard. The Silver Towers of Prospero were set ablaze by Russ; everything Perturabo knew and understood was turned upside down. It was in this shattered frame of mind that the Primarch realized his Legion's excess's meant nothing. What were a few million souls compared to the whole galaxy being in civil war. What the Iron Warriors did on Istvaan V stained their name in blood throughout time. They betrayed their oaths to the Emperor. Joining with the Word Bearers, Night Lords, and the Alpha Legion. Turning

there guns on the three remaining loyalist Legions. Decimating the Salamanders, Iron Hands, and the Raven Guard almost to the man. Siding with Horus the Iron Warriors were filled with a terrible energy. Acting like titans of old being released upon the galaxy. Reducing Vanaheim's hive cities to twisted ruins, covering Thranx, and Avellorn with forests of razorwire, and virus bombing Tallarn. Finally laying siege to Holy Terra itself. The loyalists turned them back from the gates of the Imperial Palace at a terrible cost. With the death of Horus the Iron Warriors withdrew from Terra. Unlike the other traitor Legions, it took loyalist forces led by the Imperial Fists and the Ultramarines a decade long campaign to liberate worlds under the Iron Warriors dominion. Only when they had their revenge on the world of Sebastus IV did the Sons of Perturabo retire to the Eye of Terror taking the World of Medrengard. The Iron Warriors still wage their war against the Emperor to this day with their allies in the Dark Mechanicus and the Titans of the Legio Mortis. They have been pivotal in the destruction of the installation on Hydra Cordatus and the Kasr Worlds in the Cadian System. Warsmiths like Axinous and Kang lead their Grand Companies, preying upon Imperial Systems, building great fortifications to take on all challengers. While others splinter off completely from the Legion and take on new names like the Steel Brethren terrorizing isolated worlds. One thing is for certain; their hatred and bitterness against the servants of the Emperor are just as strong now as they were ten thousand years ago.

These Correctional Facilities were little more than massive prisons built by the very people that had been enslaved. Distress signals were sent out and the nearby world of Olympia answered the call. Perturabo had only recently taken control of his Legion and the heretical violence and arrogance of the Black Judges was the perfect target for the Iron Warriors to show their devotion to their Primarch and Emperor as well as a way for the new recruits of Olympia to prove their worth. They numbered in the hundreds and towered over all other edifices. The mass graves were seen from orbit by traders and smugglers passing through or fleeing from the Black Judges and their armies. The Black Judges scoffed at the notion of an Emperor. called truce to save their home world and brought law and order to those who sought to destroy their lifeblood. They bore large caliber rifles and carried highpowered energy pistols at their side. Feuding warlords finally banded together. Absolute power of the planet twisted the minds and hearts of the ruling elite. For hundreds of years life was hell on Justice Rock. the prison population swelled in the tens of thousands. They slaughtered thousands who opposed their will and enslaved millions more.THE FALL OF JUSTICE ROCK Before the start of the Great Crusade and the Emperor of Mankind’s Galactic conquest. They declared the planet to now be called “Justice Rock. The total lack of reason was the Black Judges undoing. The Adeptus Astartes of the Iron Warriors Legion demanded that the Black Judges cease all acts of aggression and show fealty to their Lord and Primacrh. clothed in black. Once order had been restored they began building the first Correctional Facilities and the first Laws were passed. as justice knew right without sight.

The warlords dressed themselves in a puritan manner. blaspheming his name and disregarding the Legions mandate. while free men lived in fear. plain black attire and jet sheen armor.

The Legion stormed forward. his bones and innards pulverized from the impact. The precision and dogged manner the Iron Warriors fought with left the Black Army retreating to their Correctional Facilities. He raised the heathen by his neck and strangled the life from him in silence. Millions of soldiers loyal to the Black Judges died in the first three days of fighting. The Iron Warriors slaughtered all who raised weapons in last defense and those who fled were ripped apart by bolter fire or stampeded by the steel boots of the Space Marines. their super charged combat batons not even stunning our mighty Lord. the three High Marshals. only to be cut down by the cunning and lethal Marshals. The trenches and open killing fields were flooded with the blood of the Black Judges army. ramming the final Judge up against a marble effigy. One by one the strongholds of the Black Judges were cleansed with righteous fury. “A dozen Iron Warriors stood watching in awe as our Lord sidestepped a volley of gunfire and decapitated one of the Black Judges with a single blow from his power mace. his dark eyes starring coldly as the Black Judges final breathe left his lips in a gasp of blood. Pure rage pulsed through the Primarchs head as he exited his command tank and squared off against the last of the Black Judges. swatting one Judge to the floor. Imperial Records state that a Captain Thalza was witness to the wrath of his Primarch.In a matter of days the Entire Legion mobilized and invaded Justice Rock. only to have the Legion demolish them to rubble with massive cannons and siege tanks. Iron Warriors jump troops dropped from the skies as tactical squads advanced through servitor built trench lines. The Iron Warriors relentless assault took the Legion to the gates of the Black Judges palace.” HISTORY OF THE IRON WARRIORS 7 . The walls of the palace shook and moaned as it was bombarded every hour from orbit as well as by ground artillery. Perturabo charged headlong. splintering it in two. the sound of a hundred rhinos and Land Raiders shaking the very ground and dwarfing even the most extreme of ordinance explosions. Justice Rock’s three moons were clouded in smoke when Perturabo mounted his personal Land Raider and gave the order to breach the palace. Perturabo himself led the attack on their fortress. bodies piled so high they had no use for sandbags. hundreds of drop pods and storm birds slammed down onto the planets rugged surface. Perturabo had sent three squads of his newly formed Terminator armored Iron Warriors to apprehend the heretics. Until only three Black Judges remained. One handed he swung his mace again. The Black Army caught off guard was broken into piecemeal defensive units by the sheer onslaught of the Iron Warriors. Both Judges attacked the Primarch at once.

"Immaterial Rastigan. the order you have brought is commendable. not a sound came with such violence that was being wrought on the world below him. those are my orders." "He'll not like that my lord. the peoples of Olympia were loyal in their hearts he knew it. I want us ready for warp jump before the next rotation. the ships of the Iron Warriors began to cease their bombardment and shift position towards higher orbit. The doors of the Strategium to the rear of the bridge rumbled open and the Equerry addressed the massed commanders. I should have seen this.. On the bridge of the Olympian all was calm efficiency. These nobles require constant vigilance. I have no reason to doubt my brother." Rastigan bowed as he backed away." Perturabo had dismissed this as another or Dorn's arrogant taunts. "Brothers of iron! Enter this place. The siege was going well. I simply cannot believe our homeworld is in open revolt my lord?" Rastigan stepped forward into the gloom of the observation dome.

The smoke of the burning buildings and funeral pyres was visible from low orbit shrouding Olympia. The sound of bones cracked in his victim as yet more darts hit his exposed flesh. The Iron Warriors fell on their kith and kin with great vengeance and wrath. running at the Astartes with a manic blood lust. the crowd of figures lost in their blood lust did not see the five Astartes enter the throne room." The figure stood from the throne. "Lord Astartes. We merely have rested interests back into the hands of loyal Olympians. it is you who are wrong Astartes there are things you do not understand!" Daedulus stepped forward. staccato sound of rounds being fired echoed in the grand hall. The gloom of the room was lit up with the muzzle flashes of the bolters. Traitors." "Loyal Olympians! You stand and dare to justify this outrage against your ruler and the Lord of Mankind and declare yourselves loyal?"

When the Primarch finally heard of Sebastus IV he gathered up all his Fists to him to make war against Perturabo himself. Iron Warriors manned their trenches forcing the loyalists forward to blast away dragons teeth. Many loyalist ships were captured or sent tumbling to the surface.

I've also drilled out he end of the boltgun using a pin vice and 1mm drill bit. some modelers do it before building. knife and right shoulder pad are straight from the plastic Chaos Space Marine set. Unlike a number of gamer/modelers I know I do this for every gun-wielding model in my armies. STEP 2: PAINTING AN IRON WARRIOR Before painting. I tend to do my minis as a batch. Once cleaned the parts are glued using super glue. it’s a lot quicker to run a production line of a number of figures doing the same painting stage at a time rather than doing one completely. wash the mini in soapy water. If you’ve ever wondered why the paint won’t apply evenly on you mini and ‘runs off’ the surface its because of this. I've used my methods for painting rank and file troops rather than characters. Sunburst yellow. backpack. Base is a scenic resin 10mm base from EPICAST with deck plating detail. pouches. then the next. Torso is from the Iron Warriors Index Astartes set. Left shoulder pad is a metal Iron Warrior item from GW mail-order.. rifles and some heavy weapons. Iron Warriors are probably the most powerful Chaos army for firepower and the easiest to paint! GW even gives you a quick '5 minute' guide on painting Iron Warriors in the original 3rd edition Codex: Chaos Space Marines. This agent and the grease if kept on can stop paint adhering to your minis. Dwarf bronze. It’s quick and simple and adds realism to your models. STEP 1: BUILDING AN IRON WARRIOR I've delved into my bits box to make up this guy. Colours: Chaos black.. Pistols. ''Tusked' helmet is from the Chaos Havocs set. Skull white.MODELING AND PAINTING IRON WARRIORS As an army. also it helps get the grease from your fingers you apply to the mini whilst handling it during building. Build list is as follows: Khorne Berzerker legs Arms. All colours I use for painting are from the GW range. Burnished gold. Carefully pat dry them with a light towel or kitchen towel and then leave to air dry. If not done the slightest knock will ensure a scratch on your mini. Shining gold. I tend to paint troops in squads or batches. This helps get off the release agents GW use in their metal and plastic molding process. Boltgun metal. So I've set out here a step-by-step way of painting Iron Warriors.. I'd normal use these for champion models but I'm all out of GW blank bases! All the parts are clipped off their sprues and trimmed and cleaned with a fine file and scalpel. bolter. Golden yellow.. My method isn't '5 minute' but it's quite easy to miss out some of the detailing steps below to get a usable good looking Iron Warriors army on the gaming table in just a few days. I'll put some extra notes in the areas that I'd concentrate more on if painting to a character level model. 44 MODELING & PAINTING .

not too much though. The base colour is GW’s Boltgun Metal. The result when dried should be a dark matt base with an oily/ dirty look to it. red. I find GW’s metallics are the best.000 years. LOWLIGHT . Bleached bone. A couple of light coats to get as much of the figure covered as possible. It’s simple and quick. When this is dry it’s followed by a further wash of GW Badab Black wash. if too heavy it can obliterate detail. as it doesn’t pick up hair and lint.To give the armour really aged and ancient feel I use GW’s Devlan Mud wash using a paint brush.To dry brush.) MODELING & PAINTING 45 . If it looks simply black you might want to try another cost of thinned Devlan mud to give a brown tint to the armour plate. b) Use a small piece of kitchen/toilet towel to soak up the excess. But this method can be applied to any model with different sized brushes and different ‘loads’ of paint to do everything from picking out fine details on chest plates to brushing mud on the track of Land Raiders. As there isn’t that much liquid paint on the brush it will settle on the higher mould points of the model leaving the crevices (in this case) black and picks the detail up nicely. Chainmail. The mix of dark brown and black washes gives the armour a look like it’s been around for 10. As the washes can take a couple of hours to PAINTING STAGE 2 Now we start to add some colour. If you find the wash ‘pooling’ either a) brush with clean water thinning the wash out and distribute it around the model.. This can be done several times in specific areas to really build up the detail. flesh PAINTING STAGE 1 Very simply a good undercoat is vital. Don’t worry about painting over areas that you don’t want to be Boltgun Metal.. Vomit brown. I predominantly use GW Chaos black spray paint. After the washes are dry see what you think of the appearance. Wipe the brush until it’s virtually dry and then brush the mini up and down. Once done I go over my minis with Chaos black thinned with black wash using a large(ish) brush to ensure all the nooks and crannies are filled and the undercoat is nice and even. This is dry brushed* all over the body of the mini in an even coat. PAINTING STAGE 3 To pick out the detail on my models I use a method known as lowlight-highlight. I add clean water to the washes to thin them we don’t want anything too heavy at the moment. Bubonic brown. Mithril Silver Washes: Black. This process also gives the mini a slightly semi gloss appearance. chestnut. this is a base colour and detail can be painted over at later. * Dry brushing . As above. Wipe the excess off the brush onto some kitchen towel (I use this rather than cloth rag. Be careful not to use a heavily loaded brush as the wash will pool excessively in crevices. With the above model I didn’t brush too much of the paint off as I’m trying to cover a fairly large area. brown.Bestial brown. take a paintbrush loaded with the colour required.

The metal areas of the bolter were washed with black wash and the edges of the side casing were lined with Mithril silver to give a worn look to the sides of the bolter. you could simply use a brown or black wash for the armour. hips and knees. Use a small brush and paint it around the tops of the armour plates where the armour and banding join. A thin line of sunburst yellow was put on the left hand edge of the Iyanden yellow to give a highlight. The pipes on the top of the backpack could be painted black and then highlighted with a dry brush of Boltgun metal. In the case You can use Bubonic brown in place of Iyanden yellow to give a more brown appearance. then lightly washed with Devlan mud wash. However I simply washed them with black wash. Black wash will pick out the detail the stage 2 dry brushing may have gone over. For characters I may apply a couple of thinned Black washes then a Devlan wash. BOLTER The bolter side casings were first painted skull white. I also keep a wash of my own concoction. It’s much easier to apply a dark base colour and add details using a lighter colour than applying the light colour and trying to darken areas. If you wish repeat stage 3 and stage 4 to add real metallic depth to the effect. washed with Devlan Mud wash and then highlights dry brushed using Dwarf bronze thinned with Mithril silver. you could then wash with either yellow wash to enhance the yellow or with brown wash to give an aged look. I’ve lightly dry brushed the model with Boltgun metal using an old medium sized paintbrush to apply the paint but the dry brush is much lighter than stage 2. The tips of the bolter shells and the rangefinder on the muzzle end of the bolter were painted red. you shouldn’t paint on a model with wet wash still on it. PAINTING STAGE 5 Time to look at adding the detailing I use for special units and characters . The finished result is very much like lots of carbon build up on steel/iron which is what I’m looking for. described further down. Next the bolter shells. Don’t overdo this though. which is half Gryphonne Sepia and half Badab black this makes for a nice mid tone dirt brown wash which isn’t as dark as Devlan mud. Should you wish. The basic colour is now done. Then the black cross hatch lines were painted on next with detail brush. part of the rear plating was painted Dwarf bronze. feed mechanism. Repeated a couple of times you can build the colour up on a figure to look very malevolent. bolter arrow trims and cocking handles were painted with dwarf bronze. The same method was used on the flexible joints on the elbows. this method I’ve tried and looks far more artificial. PAINTING STAGE 4 This stage gives us the ‘highlight’ part of the ‘lowlighthighlight’ method mentioned above. Each is slightly lighter than the previous shade. In all counts it’s better to apply two or three thinned coats rather than one heavy coat. then Iyanden yellow as a base coat for the Golden yellow. the colours run! If you wish to make the lowlight darker repeat the process until the armour is as dark as you require. this really darkens the armour giving a very ancient look done in conjunction with the highlight process. don’t go too mad with this. I’ll do a last highlight coat using a light dry brush of Chainmail. be careful not to make the wash too heavy. The former will give a rusted appearance.dry. this sinks into the recesses leaving the tips of the ribbing on the pipes with its original colour (the dry brushed Boltgun metal) still shining through. BACKPACK The backpack was painted as per the rest of the figure. You can add to stage 4 to accentuate the colour with further light dry brushings with lighter shades of the highlight colour. The backpack 46 MODELING & PAINTING . If you are careful you can do a few very light dry brushes to add depth to the colour. GW’s Gryphonne Sepia wash is good for ‘rusted’ detailing. of Boltgun metal GW list Chainmail and Mithril silver as the highlight colours. Stage 4 is very similar to stage 2.

The horns/tusks were first painted bestial brown and washed with a mix of black/brown wash.. Lots of the details can be applied to other forces/legion/chapters as well as Chaos Marines. This gives a stripped’ effect of colour progressing up the horn/tusk. acter models I sometimes follow these methods. Try to keep the palette down to as few colours as possible as this gives a much more uniform look to your forces. The center of the pad was painted black and the trim and arrow & skull icon painted dwarf bronze.vents were trimmed with dwarf bronze and the lower exhaust ports were highlighted with Mithril Silver. washed with black ink/wash and then the side casing picked out in simple black. I wash this then with Thraka green wash and pick out the pin with Boltgun metal HELMET. The blade was then dry brushed with Boltgun metal and highlights of Mithril silver used along the blade edge. Clasps are done in with Boltgun metal or Shining gold. The same was done on the Iron Warrior icon shoulder pad. So there ya go. however I use a simpler and quicker way. Using a thinned wash of the colour you require over the lens. For char- There you have it! As mentioned above. This guy has a frag grenade hanging from his belt. Bolters can be painted Boltgun metal. Eye lenses can simply be a single painted colour with no highlight. The trim & icons were washed with Devlan Mud wash. next a stripe of white is applied on top of the black leaving a black border around the white area. TUSKS & HORNS The basic helmet is painted as per the rest of the armour. now get paintin’! MODELING & PAINTING 47 . then carefully dry brush Goblin green on to the fragmentation plates of the grenade. Use Bestial brown as the base colour and wash with the Gryphonne Sepia wash. highlights need to go on the edges of the pouches and high spots of the fleshy base the Chaos Marines have them put on. to paint this I wash the grenade with black wash. I put a small drop of black wash onto the rivet and left it to dry. But you can see what can be down with a limited palette or colours. using a wash can give you a quick lowlight with the high points of the base colour giving you a natural highlight doesn’t require further highlighting. Mithril silver was used to highlight around the lens sockets. The hilt and guard were painted dwarf bronze and also washed with the Devlan Mud wash. I then wash lightly with brown wash and then re-emphasize the white tip of the horn/tusk. For speed you might want to drop some of the highlighting techniques. Then using black or dark brown and a fine brush paint vertical ‘ridges’ up the length of the horn to give the illusion of grain and gouges in the horn. The handgrip was painted bestial brown and washed with a mix of black and brown washes. On larger models this is best done with multiple stripes of mixed colour graduating from the dark base to the white tip. I equipped this model with a combat knife from the Chaos Space Marines plastic sprue. The mouth grille is the painted with a light wash of black wash. But that’s essentially the way I paint my Iron Warriors. The iron skull was painted Boltgun metal. This will give your lowlights. GW has published in White Dwarf magazine on several occasions’ articles on painting gems and lenses. although this also applies to holsters. I’ve included some detailing tips I would probably skip over if painting up regular troop units. trim is done with Dwarf bronze as per the other pieces of armour. Paint the eye lens area in white. mouth grille and ear pieces. Around the moulded rivets on these shoulder pads. SHOULDER PADS The right hand shoulder pad was a plastic item from the kit. PACKS & POUCHES Lastly we have the packs and pouches. The area above the base the horn is then painted Bubonic brown. Helmet lenses are first painted black to ‘fill out’ the lens area. then Bleached bone and finally white at the tip of the horn. you can achieve a natural highlight. Once dried I carefully add a spot of Shining gold this accentuates the rivet detail.. The wash will naturally ‘pool’ in the corners of the eye socket leaving the domed center area of the lens with the white undercoat shining through more than the corners. washed with black wash and then dry brushed highlights applied with Mithril silver. To highlight I use firstly Bestial brown and then Bestial brown mixed with some Bleached bone.
