Iron Hands - Painting update 4 - Tactical Marines completed

After a little bit of a painting break during the holiday season I hit the ground running this new year and I'm happy to say I've finally got my first set of tactical marines painted. I bought them when the new Space Marine codex was initially released about a year and a half ago now. I'm happy to ring in the new year having finally completed painting my first 15 Iron Hands, and while I'm quite a slow painter, I'm really trying to reign myself in and not go too crazy so I can actually see this army fully assembled and painted on the tabletop.

Here are the final six Marines, they're mostly un-helmeted since I was saving the more detailed face painting for the last step but I'm really happy with how they've turned out.

I'm going to switch gears and work on something other than Tactical Marines for a while, potentially bikes since they're an important part of my army. In the meantime I'm also adding final details to a Contemptor Dreadnought and starting to paint his base. If all goes well I'll have it completed and on the base by the end of the weekend so hopefully I'll another post ASAP.


  1. Came out great Mark. Lots of little details on these guys. You definitely spent a good amount of time on them, and it shows in the quality!

  2. These look amazing dude, really professional. Now you only need 4 more tactical squads for the Apoc game.

  3. Thanks guys. I also need to paint 20 scouts and 10 sternguard. I should quite my job and move back in with my parents so I have more free time.
