Macca here, today I have my 77th Grand Battalion Command Squad. These guys were a blast to build and paint. The theory behind them, is that these are all assholes who are just waiting for the opportunity to stab their commander in the back and take command for themselves. Presenting, the Dirty not-quite-half Dozen.
The design here was simple, unique individuals, so uniquely armed, as well as keeping the hazard stripes to a minimum. As I mentioned on the Tormentor project, these are Iron Warriors, not Hazard Warriors, so I kept the hazards to their weapons, the banner, or to the chest armour if I couldn't place them on a weapon. This means overall that the warriors remain mostly silver and bronze-gold. The bases are simple sands, as they are fighting on Paramar, and if I tooled them up with metal decking and mechanicum-themed bases, it would be silver and urban overload. Yuck.

Of course, the banner is a work of love and simplicity. I didn't want to clutter it, so I kept it simple. This is one of those annoying cases where the model looks terrible in the photo, so my apologies.
Banner on top of the Tormentor? Sure, why not?
So, first post of the New Year, thanks for dropping in,
