Hey, im just poking around for ideas for my up and coming Iron warriors battle standard, it will be an objective model for take and hold missions in the GT.
I was wondering what standard to use either a chaos maruader one or a Space marine one,what I should paint on the standard, a normal chaos symbol, skulls, a defiled banner.
Im totally stuck, and spoilt for choice! :rolleyes:
*EDIT* This probabley should be in the conversion forum too, What weapons should i give him? I probabley will never use him in an actual game. I have options for, power fist, Power weapon, plasma pistol, bolt pistol, plasma pistol, chainsword and bolter/melta, all suitablry iron warriored up.
iron warrior eh...i would think that they would have a tatterd banner similiar to the chaos warrior ones in fantasy, or maybe the Ogre banner. Color would be balck, as a silver banner would be stupid. Maybe you could have a border line of red or silver on the sides. I would then have the iron warriors symbol painted on the middle Or something similiar like a metallic skull or the like. I would stray away from how the loyalist marines banners look, because i think they look too "good". Also i think that tatters would be important, because i dont think that they would try there darndest to keep it in good condition...Or you could totally do something different and make it so its not a banner, but a big metal skull with the chaos halo sorrounding it on a stick. That i think would fit the best for the iron warriors. Hope it helps....

Maybe you've seen this or maybe not, all of these banners are for the W40K Dawn of War PC game but they're handy as a quick reference for standards. I play Iron Warriors too and used this site's IW banner, although mine turned out iffy, since I'm hardly a pro painter.
It's a shame you couldn't print these on cloth and add them to your models after they've been painted, that would be a truly epic custom touch.
