‘For Ultramar and Old Terra’ - XIII Legion Project Log

Recommended Posts

‘For Ultramar and Old Terra’


Footer V3 (1)


‘When my end comes, in the bloody manner it is fated to be, I am content that my brothers will remember me. That is all that I have ever hoped for myself. What troubles me is that, with my passing, the names of a thousand comrades of old will fade. That will be my final regret.’ 

 - Iskandar Locke, Personal Writings. 



Well, what's this? Another Age of Darkness project log? Just in time for the new edition?


I'm aware that I am by no means the only person on the forum right now who is both hyped for Heresy 2.0 and keen to motivate myself to power through a backlog before the new stuff lands. I've also been in a bit of a hobby bare patch and for quite a while have been thinking of setting up a little, semi-narrative project log to help motivate me and share some of the substandard background material I've written for my Ultramarines.


I currently have a few thousand points of XIII Legion and allied Imperial Army in various stages of completion, with vague plans to include some Sisters of Silence & Custodes that I have sat in a box somewhere. 


You can see some more of all my hobby stuff over on Instagram but to get this thread rolling, here is the last character I finished. In game he's a Delegatus / Warmonger (RIP) / Centurion for smaller point games. Let me know what you think!

Not had a huge amount of hobby time so far this week, but have realised I'e got some good photos of one of my Tactical Squads already uploaded to my B&C gallery.


These guys were completed early last year, and are the last unit I painted without any airbrush use. So while the highlights aren't as good as models I've painted since, I'm still quite happy with their overall look & the various kitbashes I used to give them some interest.

That's a great model, really like the pose and the shade of blue.


great looking mini.


Thanks both! :smile.:


That half-bare head was an absolute triumph of a sculpt. Every kitbasher loves it.

If the Mk2 are brought back, this half-helmet concept should return in plastic. It has already been done for Mk4 in resin (see profile pic), surely it can be done again?


Yeah its a great one, isn't it? Have used both of mine from the Legion Tank Crew set I got when it was LCTB now. Think there is a half-helm / rebreather head in the new MK VI kit by the looks of it though.
