Iron Warriors WIPS and new Terrain WIPS

Current WIPS.

In my previous post I mentioned that I had two terrain projects I was working on.
The first one is a zone mortalis board.

The Zone Mortalis board will look similar to my friend Joe's board.  He was able to make the corner pieces and walls that he gave me.  He also ordered a number of wide Zone Mortalis doors for me as well.

For my board I will still need to figure out what I want the base to look like.

This is my Zone Mortalis Terrain, some of it still needs to be painted.

The second terrain board I will be working on is a trench board.  I haven't begun work on it yet but my friend Dale has.

Dale and I are planning to play a number of games on a large trench warfare board.  He has begun making 1' square sections for his Orks.  I will soon be making Iron Warrior sections.  I kind of want to make larger sections, like 2' by 2' but we will see.

It should be an interesting board having both well-made trench works (Iron Warriors know how to do that sort of thing.) and not well-made trench works (Orks don't really care how pretty their things are.)

My 30k Iron Warriors are coming along.  I am not sure what I want to buy after my current batch of minis are done.  I could buy a few Dreadclaws or a Spartan, either of which would be useful.  I could continue to buy old models like old vindicators and predators.  All I know for certain is I will continue buying the small red books from Forgeworld and possibly some of the larger leather-bound books from them as well.

That's it for now.  See you next time when I should have more updates.


  1. Forge world makes the large black leather bound Horus heresy books which have background as well as campaign systems and other additional rules like relics. The small red books are just the rules. Here is the link to one of them at forge world https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/The-Horus-Heresy-Legiones-Astartes-Crusade-Army-List
