Some time back I posted a concept and some lame-ass fluff for the Iron Eagle suits of Powered Armor. Recently it went through some major re-working. The name is changed and about 80% of the old fluff is invalid.
This is the updated concept image (sorry for crap on the left, I forgot to remove it before I uploaded the image to PB and cannot edit it out ATM):
On the right: Helmet with enchanced autosense array, reiforced neckguard, chest plate with integrated additional device (multi-purpose with various exchangeable modules, including servo-skull controllers, targetting assistance units, comm pickups) improving the battle-capabilities and armor funcionality under certain circumstances, shoulderpad with an additional side-guard plate.
These are by no means all additions and alterations, as each Iron Angel suit is individually built and Malachai quite enjoys experimentation with new ways of reinforcing the existing plates, new support devices an the like.
First Iron Angel in all his glory (Yeah, I know the pictures are quite bad, but it's the best I could get ATM)
What do you think? Good? Bad? Could be better?
PS. Here I have posted a piece of colour text on the armor, hope you like it.

It looks good, but I want to see some real stuff like converted models!
I've forgotten that LO does not automatically underline links. I've edited the post to underline them.
Nice but it looks to much like a dark angel for my liking but stil NICE!
It IS a Dark Angel. The armor itself is called "Iron Angel".
looks good, nice
how much actual conversion is there in the model?
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
Backpack: Chaos Space Marine backpack, the "wings" removed, exhaust jets reattached and then additional armor sculpted over, minor GS on the sides to make the "boxes" so typical for Marine armor. Some of the original detail (like the Chaos arrow and cables running on the top plate) was filed off to not interfere with the overall looks of the miniature.
Helmet: Faceplate removed except the eyes, new one sculpted. Additional autosense arrays sculpted on the sides
Left arm: Hand reposed, several extra rivets sculpted
Right arm: Upper arm and hand reposed, extra rivets sculpted
Bolter: Custom-sculpted muzzle flash and falling shell casings
Torso: Thin card strengthened with glue forms a new neck-guard on the front, two larger pieces from the same cardstock with GS rivets form the armor plates attacked to the belt, the cabling on the abdomen was filed off and an armored sleeve was sculpted there instead (arm is removable to show it, unfortunately none of these pictures document this fact), a control box was sculpted on the right side of the chest and finally several more rivets were applied here as well.
legs: Three rivets on the boots and eight really large screw-heads were sculpted on the greaves to give this "heavily reinforced armor" look.
You're going to have a hell of a time making an entire army of them but it would look damned cool. Great job, I really love the armor pattern! Makes my out-of-the-box Marines look like plastic crap :p .
I'm not going for a full army of them, simply because of how much bitz are neccesary for each and every one. A squad, sure. Two maybe. An army - somwhere in far future.
Right now I am working on a second miniature with this armor pattern - naturally, that suit will again be individualised.
