This army was inspired by a White Dwarf article. I know that WD peaks and troughs in terms of it's quality, but occasionaly I'm challenged by it (Sanguinor anyone?!). Phil Dunn of 'eavy metal was partaking in the WD tale of four painters with Goff Orks - and his method for painting them was so simple! I'd always been a bit nervous about black - but this was a new lease of life.
The SM vanilla dex had just been released, and I fancied a bike troop army. The two ideas came together in the Iron hands project. I'd had the pose for the HQ in my head for a while, and it was the first model I built for the army.
