Last week I got Forgeworld's Iron Warriors Decal sheet, and it's quite a thing. Big, chock full of cool stuff, and even decently priced, all told (Piranha Graphics' Heavy Gear ones were TINY, of worse quality and comparatively much more expensive, for example). So I decided to test them:
...and I'm quite happy with the end result, but not so much with the ease of getting there. The decals are much more... rigid, I guess, than regular GW ones, so they didn't fit AT ALL over the rounded shoulder pads. Had I not have Micro Sol and Micro Set, it would have ended in tears. But I had them, so after some applications the decals affixed right.
Also, yesterday I got the new Dark Imperium 40k 8th edition starter box, and assembled all the stuff. And as a test, I painted one of the new Primaris Marines using my IW paint scheme:
I must say that I'm very pleasantly surprised with the new minis. Yes, they are wayy bigger than the old SM minis, but heads, hands, shoulder pads and backpacks are all the same size, so really, they basically have fixed the proportions to something human-like instead of cartoony. Also, they are "truescale" now, if that is important to you (they would work lovely for Inq28 games, for example, IMHO).
As it is, I'm going to paint this new Adeptus Restartes as Iron Warriors, and "in-setting" they are going to be Primaris Space Marines build using the geneseed of the IV Legion (Primarch Gilliman has expressly forbidded Cawl to do that even though his experiments have shown that the traitor legion's geneseed was not tainted, and that them turning traitors was in reality due to their primarchs,but I don't expect Cawl would pay much attention to any order that is not "what I was already gonna do anyways", so... he'll just say that they are Ultramarine geneseed and go on with his work :p).
