I'm back with a quick post to show you the finished version of Ferrus Manus!
"Ferrus was amongst the strongest of the primarchs, within him burning the heat of the furnace, its fury tempered by an exterior as cold as unyielding iron"
After my last work in progress post I just needed to add the Ceramite White to one of the cog motifs and also add the Runefang Steel highlight. I chose to add the Ceramite White as it ties the rest of my Iron hands together and matches the clan transfers.
As I've already mentioned in a previous post it was the arms which I enjoyed painting the most. I used the Runefang Steel as the base with a light wash of Nuln Oil to pick out the muscles and then the Guiliman blue glaze to give them more of a liquid metal appearance. Finally I added a highlight of Runefang Steel to the raised parts of the muscles and the Guilliman blue glaze to fade the metal into the skin of his upper arms.
I have decided to not add the scenic base yet as I will probably magnetise the other components at a later date.
I did manage to get him completed by the Battle Bunnies Christmas party, however he really lacked a delivery method and ended up moving forwards with the Gordon Terminators and then back again without engaging any unit at all! This is why I have decided to add a Spartan assault tank into my future Iron Hands force.
I'm not the best builder of models so I did find the servo harness quite fiddly to put together, however I think it eventually came out quite well. The servo-harness itself includes a servo-arm, plasma blaster, graviton gun, grenade harness, heavy flamer and a nuncio-vox! Not bad at all!
With Ferrus completed I will soon be working on a character and I should be able to share my other completed units with you once the transfers are applied. I've now decided on Clan Sorrgol after reading about Meduson and I think he will make a great shattered legions leader in the future. I will also be doing a post with some background about Clan Sorrgol and why I have chosen this particular clan to focus on.
Thanks again for reading!
