Jud's Heresy Era Forces of Ultramar


Recommended Posts

Hello.

I've been reading this forum for a while now and thought I'd share what I've

been doing as well as get some good advice on moving forward.

You may notice that my models are a mix of 40k and HH marines.

I know they're not strictly all HH models but I'm on a budget! 

Also my idea was to try and make every man a hero and thus unique.

So far I have 2 tactical, a stand in Praetor and a tactical support squad armed 

with plasmaguns.

Here's some pics of my progress so far:

My stand in Praetor, he'll become a sergeant once I get a better model

My tactical support squad.

 

Next I'll be adding some assault marines.

Any tips or opinions on how to arm them would be great, so far I have a sergeant with thunder hammer and

shield.

Well done with the Ultras. I love the white on the helmet face. I've never thought of doing it quite like that. I might have to lift that idea.

+1

 

I've gone for gold in the same area. Getting white to that standard is rather beyond me at the moment http://image.bolterandchainsword.com//public/style_emoticons/default/laugh.png

Many thanks brothers!

Kriegriss, I got the crests from Anvil Industries, they're part of the Exo-Lords range,

I use the spartan crest, though you can get others.

Orangebob, glad you feel inspired by my work, I look forward to seeing your stuff.

Also if anyone has any tips on how to arm an assault squad I'd be very greatful.

Assault squads are prertty naff in the heresy rules (crazy overpriced!) but you can give 1 in 5 power weapons or pistols weapons (hand flamer or plasma pistol) which is quite reasonable considering you can take them in 20 man squads! They can ALL also take combat shields and melta bombs if you like. So if you have the sergeant with artificer armour, combat shield and smashy splatty weapon like a power fist or thunder hammer then you could give a few others regular power swords or maces to mash things or power axes for more AP2.

KJB, the blue was done by applying 2 light coats of watered down Alaitoc blue with a line highlight

of a 50/50 mix of Alaitoc blue and space wolf grey.

 

Reyner, many thanks for the advice.

I'll be running them with 2 power weapons (probably swords).

My sergeant is armed how you said, here's a pic of him:

He looks great man, check out the New Stuff on forge world! I almost died of awesome!

 

Thanks.

Had a look, loving the Praetorian bitz, they'll definately be thrown in the mix!

The Invictarii heads on the other hand don't do anything for me at all.

Managed to make some more progress on my Ultramarines.

This time I added 5 new members to my Assault squad.

Again these were a mix of bitz taken from the Vanguard veterans

and MK IV Legion Assault squad.

Has anyone got an idea of when Guilleman will be up for pre-order?

Got 5 more of these left, should keep me out of trouble for a bit!

Your Ultras are really stunning.

With a lot of ornaments and bling, painted in gold, I really dig HH Ultras. They appear a lot more noble and knightly than their 40k boring smurfs counterparts.

 

Would nearly want to begin a HH Ultra army... Nearly (to busy with my Scars).

Thanks lads, glad you like them.

Got 5 assault marines left to do, I'll post pics once they're done.

The question now is what next?

I'm thinking maybe Guilliman or more tacticals not sure.

Guilliman for sure, the primarch is YOUR best unit, nigh unkillable, and will give you some juicy bonuses

Thanks Lionofjudah I do give the gold a little more than the blue, kinda draws the eye.

noigrim. I will get Guilliman next (I'll get him for father's day!)

Managed to fit in a bit of painting, 2 more assault marines.

I'm quite pleased with the progress I'm making with this project.

when you get Gilliman you could also grab some sicaran venators for 2 S10 armourbane shots each with the primarch giving them tank hunters. Have the ultimate lulz when you reduce your enemies superheavies to snap shooting with a 180pts tank. That is if you are facing fellblades and such, even so, against "normal" vehicles it will be absolutely overkill!

I don't rate the Venator personally.

 

The new Vindicator Tank Destroyers are absolutely fantastic and a steal for their points.

 

I run two of those alongside a Sicaran.

Cheers lads. I think when I start buying tanks I'll get a basic Sicaran first,

they just seem to have more versatility at this stage of the project.

Eventually I'd like all three, I'll see how it goes.

Next up will be the last few Assault marines.

Finally painted the last of the  Ultramarines I have.

It's my first assault squad, as usual it's an eclectic mix of parts

in this unit's case it's FW MKIV assault squad and a GW vanguard veteran kit plus a few odds and sods.

I'll be making an order on Wednesday, I'm going for more tacticals for the time being (I can't wait til Guilliman is released!)

Here's the pics, the last 2 plus a couple of group shots.
