Iron Hands Steel Paint Review

Citadel Colour’s Iron Hands Steel is a base coat paint made especially for use while painting miniatures. It is an acrylic paint with a matte finish and premium pigments that offer outstanding coverage and facilitate simple color blending. For both novice and seasoned miniature painters, Iron Hands Steel is a flexible and dependable option that belongs in every palette. Iron Hands Steel, with its metallic and grayish undertone, is a crucial color for miniatures and may be utilized as the base for a variety of effects and aesthetics. Its even, smooth texture gives every miniature a hint of realism and toughness, making it a popular option for those wishing to add some grit to their models.

What vehicle armies to paint with Iron Hands Steel

Here are three Warhammer 40K vehicles that can be painted with Iron Hands Steel:

  • Land Raider: The Land Raider is a heavily armed and armored tank used by the Space Marines. Its metallic armor and weapons would be well suited for a coat of Iron Hands Steel.
  • Predator: The Predator is a tank used by the Space Marines. Its armored hull and turret would look great painted with Iron Hands Steel.
  • Rhino: The Rhino is a transport vehicle used by the Space Marines. Its metallic armor would be well suited for a coat of Iron Hands Steel.

I chose these vehicles because they are all Space Marines in the Warhammer 40K universe and because they all have a metallic, industrial look that fits Iron Hands Steel well. My understanding of the game and the numerous vehicles and groups inside it lead me to decide to list these particular vehicles.

 Iron Hands Steel Colour Schemes & Combinations

Color theory, which is the study of how colors interact with one another, is typically the foundation for the choice to employ particular colors together. Utilizing complimentary colors, or those that sit opposite one another on the color wheel, is one of the basic tenets of color theory. Red and green are complementary colors, for instance. 

Split complementary colors are made up of the complementary color and the two colors on either side of it. Red, yellow-green, and blue-green, for instance, are split-complementary colors.

On the color wheel, adjacent colors are referred to as analogous colors. Red, orange, and yellow are three examples of comparable hues. A harmonious and unified color scheme can be made with these hues.
