Friday night I was at my FLGS here in Vegas and decided to order my initial batch of Iron Brotherhood minis. I have searched for pictures of other existing armies for inspiration and have discovered some beautiful work out there. Until FW or GW come out with a full list I have decided to base my army on Codex: Necrons. I felt by using that codex it would help with the advanced technology feel of the army.
This is the first guy I ordered and will be my counts as Necron Lord. The only thing I plan on adding to the model is a Mechanicus style warscythe.
Was thinking about running these guys as Necron Deathmarks. I like the model so I probably won't be doing too much them.
To make a legal army I went ahead and ordered 10 of these guys and will run them in two squads of 5 Necron Immortals. I think the model is fine as is, so I probably won't be doing any conversions with these either.
These are the last models I ordered. I was having a difficult time thinking about what to run them as so I am leaning towards Necron Heavy Destroyers. I definitely want to add ranged weapons arms and a power pack of some sort.
Future Plans will included filling out the ranks of my existing units and adding more units. The two pictures above are models that I would like to get eventually. Since the model range is limited I plan on adding simple modifications to represent different units. I would like to add a flyer eventually but I am having a difficult time finding a model that would go along with the theme.
This is not going to be a competitive list and will be for friendly games at my game store because I know some of the model are not the best at what they represent. I play 40k for fun and the last thing I want to be accused of is modeling for advantage. I'm doing it to satisfy my long fixation with the Mechanicus and as a fun side project to go along with my existing 40k armies.
I may consider using these bits from Kromlech if I can get ahold of them: http://www.kromlech.eu/

Here is a link Hortwerth's fantastic Iron Brotherhood army that really inspired me and really pushed me over the edge to go ahead with this project: http://s6.invisionfree.com/adeptusmechanicus/ar/t80.htm
