|A bit of a tricky model to photograph.|
The kit itself was fine to build, a little fiddly in places but nothing to complain about. It certainly benefits from being painted in sub assemblies however. When I painted my Dragoon, I assembled it entirely first and was cursing myself throughout the painting process.

I did have the chance to try it out on the tabletop this past weekend against an Ork army fielded by one of my regular opponents. The Ironstrider proved to be pretty ineffective as I whiffed a few of my hit rolls. It chewed a few wounds off of a trukk and, in turn 4, spectacularly nailed two grots at long range but that was about it. Regardless of my ineptitude, it was another Mechanicus victory, so the forces of the Omnissiah continue to rampage unchecked.
After painting the Ironstrider I embarked on a bit of a building spree which has fired my hobby enthusiasm somewhat. I really love building models, so getting a few kits out and just throwing them together was deeply joyful. I'm currently working on a Questoris Knight Gallant, of which I hope to share some work in progress shots in the coming weeks.
