  1. So anyone whose seen my posts lately in the "Today in the Hobby" thread knows thst for the Everchosen painting competition I decided to paint Guilliman, and that I'm going to be tackling this as a project to also nail down NMM (as well as other things, like faces). My goal is from now until my store's Everchosen selection day (TBD as it won't be the 29th due to being closed) to make some kind of progress on painting Guilliman, even if it's something small. And trust me some of the details are pretty small. For June 29th's update here's the gold NMM I did for his shoulder pad:
  2. 'I saw our standard bathed in blood...' +++ I was rereading the White Dwarf relating the launch of the 4th Edition Codex: Space Marines (that'd be November 2004) and I found this lovely picture in the battle report pitting Graham McNeill's Ultramarines against Pete Haines' orks. Long story short, Tigurius surprised the orks by charging them first with his command squad. He and his apothecary were the last to fall after bogging down most of Big Boss Razzekai's forces long enough for the Ultramarines to secure victory. (Tigurius lived because "it ain't dead 'til it's eaten," as the ork saying goes.)
  3. Hello, everyone. Welcome to my new WIP thread, in which I will chronicle the construction, and hopefully completion, of my take on the Ultramarines Third Company. My aim for this army is to build a full Battle Company in the colours of the Third. Along the way, I hope to improve my painting abilities, including speed and precision. I've been collecting Warhammer, both Fantasy and 40k, for over eight years. I've had many armies along the way. The latest that I've shared was this, also Ultramarines Third Company. Like every project before it, it didn't work out for a variety of reasons. But now I think, I hope, I've found something that I can stick with (knock on wood). I don't want to go on a long rant about what my models will be like, but I'd like to share the basic stuff. Colour scheme is typical Ultramarines, red trims for the Third Company, and all lenses and Plasma weapon coils will be orange-red, to both limit my palette a bit, and to provide a complimentary spot colour to the blue. So far, I like it. Each model will be an individual, with a unique combination of parts and pose. I've bought, and will buy, lots of Forge World sets, which helps greatly with variations. I also use parts from the other Power Armour armies, such as helmetless heads from the Blood Angels range. And for the first time in years, I might use waterslide transfers. The results weren't pretty last time I used them, mostly because I'm terrible at applying them. But I think my abilities have progressed enough that I can make it work. I tried out a few from the standard GW Space Marine sheet on some spare bits. Went well, compared to the last time around, and I've got Micro Set and Micro Sol on the way. If I can make it work, I'll buy some transfer sheets from Forge World. At any rate, they'll probably be smoother and cleaner than my freehanding... Additionally, each model will be named, and I will create a small description/back story. Don't expect literary wonders, I'm really just doing it for fun. That's enough boring text for now. Moving on, here's what I'm working on right now. The first squad of this army is squad Aurelius, the first Tactical Squad in the company. Led by Veteran Sergeant Arcadius, an honoured veteran of the company, Aurelius is widely thought of as a solid, dependable squad. Most of the members have served Third Company for a long time, and are amongst the company's best. The first Astartes I'm working on is Battle-Brother Marius, Aurelius' Plasma Gunner. Though taciturn, he shares a strong bond of friendship with Arcadius. His armour is a combination of the newer Mk. VII, and Mk. III armour originating in the days of the Great Crusade. He has earned the right to wear such ancient armour in the fires of countless wars, never faltering in the service of Guilliman and The Emperor. http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu321/Ramell_of_Cadia/Ultramarines/Work%20In%20Progress/MariusLearchusPIP.jpg (The picture is no particularly good; the colours are a bit off. That's another thing to work on.) Obviously, Marius is the one on the right with the Plasma. He is not quite finished, but it won't be long. The blue on the backpack still needs some work, but aside from that, it's mostly just touch-ups, weathering, transfers, and flocking the base that I need to do. The torso and shoulder pads are Forge World Mk. III armour, the Aquila is FW brass etch, and the helmet is from the Tank bits sprue. Rest is just standard parts from a Tactical Squad box. The Marine on the left is Learchus, a regular Battle-Brother. He has a Mk. IV helmet, and a Mk. V-variant torso (from a Chaos Marine set, actually), but other than that, is just made up of regular plastic parts. The missing parts will be attached sooner or later, as I make progress in my painting. I've also done some Blu-tacked mockups of six other marines of squad Aurelius, including Veteran Sergeant Arcadius. He's the one in the middle, with the Power Sword. http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu321/Ramell_of_Cadia/Ultramarines/Work%20In%20Progress/SquadAureliusBlutacMockup.jpg I've pledged Squad Aurelius for the Dark Angels Painting Challenge. This should hopefully help motivate me to finish the squad in a somewhat-timely manner. I think that's it for now. I will keep this thread updated, at least once a week, on Sunday evenings. Beyond that, I will post whenever I feel like it, and I will try to reply to your comments within twenty-four hours. I would very much like your comments, in particular constructive criticism, so that I can improve my painting. Thank you for reading. Courage and Honour!
  4. Good day, lads. I want to ask you about how you deal with Ultramarines with Guilliman armies. I have played several games versus them and suddenly realized that I can't actually win these games against Guilliman + literally anything. I would not lie, my opponent is quite experienced player, still the army he plays is actually nothing special. It's all bout endless rerolls of everything, and I'm not that good at safe rolls (if this can be an issue ). When your opponent hits with 90% of everything and wounds with 80% of them hits, it's pretty difficult to survive, and I have no actual idea on how to counter this thing. It's usually Guilliman + centurions + any kind of heavy support, for example predators or land raider. My army is a mixture of detachments of different chaos legions. Commonly I bring some Spearhead detach. on Alpha (havocs, obliterators) and Batallion with Berzerkers + Chaos Lords in Rhinos (sometimes Chaos Land Raider) on World Eaters. I'm eager to hear your opinions on this topic, please share your thoughts and experience, thank you.
  5. ...or Roboute Guilliman... who came up with that crazy name and how do you REALLY pronounce it? Hail Brothers and Sisters of Ultramar and the Greater Imperium! After many years of lurking I've come out of the shadows to post my first major topic. Wish me luck. I hope you like it. Here gooooes........ Ever since being sucked into GW's mad and wonderful universe of 40k I've had a special interest in the fluff. And I've had an extra special interest in the origins and symbolism infused in the fluff. Some is more obvious than others. Take that crazy mixed up Konrad Curze (call me Night Haunter) and his troop of happy go lucky Night Lords. It doesn't take much of a Google search to see the inspiration of Joseph Conrad and his works ('Heart of Darkness', 'Nostromo', etc.). Then there's your favorite chapter and mine (at least mine) the Ultramarines. If you read just a bit of the fluff it's easy to see the Greco Roman influence and the idea that Ultramar is the Roman Empire with a smiley face. But what about some of the details. Why Ultramar, who came up with the name Marneus Calgar, and how do you really pronounce Roboute Guilliman and how do you know? Perhaps you asked Matt Ward over a pint at Bugman's. Perhaps Graham McNeill confided in you that Uriel Ventris was really named after his great grand uncle Uriel Ventris McNeill. I'm very interested in any stories you have or any undocumented ideas you may have. I know this seems a rather broad topic, but I suspect there really isn't a lot of information out there. I could be wrong, and if I am...JACK POT! Just a few rules to remember before we get started: Ultramarines lore only This is not a discussion of actual lore origins and ideas behind the lore only Official GW sources are great Your own personal ideas are great too Thoughts?...... The floor is yours.
  6. I know everyone comes here for pictures.... so I'll keep the babble short. + I'm starting this thread with one or two pictures from my finished 40K Ultramarines' projects of the last 12 or so months. + The pictures and content in this thread is derived of content entirely from my long term Ultramarines thread which includes Fiction Reviews, WIP's/Projects, and most importantly... lots of Batreps with several of the Formations. You can check that out here: +LINK+ + If all you're here for is the pics, what I've done is take essentially one or two pics from last year of painting my Ultramarines to kick off this thread. Then I hope to add more later. Some of these older pics show how I've evolved my scheme over the last 12 months.... my first tactical squad: The Big Boys: Centurions Then I bought this big box set.... for the limited Captain. I had to have it. (Turns out the Strike Force Ultra in the new codex is a lot of fun btw). And from that, came the start of the something bigger... Then had to do a generic Captain dude: LIbCon seemed like a good idea to add... some Librarians: The new Assault Squad box really sparked my motivation. As with most things I paint, I was very inspired by the Black Library portrayal of Chaplain Sentina from the Orath Mini-series of Space Marine books: This was my take on him: My Strike Force Ultra Limited Captain finally was re-touched, and completed: And a few months ago I decided to take the plunge and try to finish my Battle Company, starting with vehicles... ugh. Lots of vehicles: Here's a better shot of the Razorkbacks, with the Anti-Air Defense Force in the back: Coming up.... Part 2:
  7. Let's start the gushing over the rules we have people! This topic is to discuss all things Victrix Guard. Tactics, army composition, modelling and painting - you name it! I'll start the ball rolling... I love this Detachment already! It does several things for Ultramarines as well as the "meta" in general: Ultramarines now have serious hitting power outside heavy weapons spam. Traditionally, Marines might not have the serious threats that other factions might have so relied on attrition and objectives scoring to win the day. Now our infantry can carve a path through just about anything! Hell, even Mortarion will struggle against a Vanguard squad that gets +1 to hit and wound, rerolls 1 for a Captain and has a bunch of dual Lightning Claws! Then there's the potential for power fists and Thunder Hammers... What this does to the wider game is emphasise assault again in an army traditionally a little shooty. Now people like me who built balanced lists with close combat and battalion shooting support aren't handicapping themselves. Now they can provide a threat outside of Soup. I want to take advantage of this though so it's likely I'll be applying it to my army with some new additions. The only problem is what... more Sternguard or more Vanguard? I'm thinking the latter. Also, a full unit of Vanguard plus Captain (with whatever that sword does!) And maybe even Ancient might just make a Land Raider worthwhile again. Especially with all the points drops we all expect! *** Wish listing... a 3rd Strategum to be utilised by shooting squads (apart from Masterful Marksmanship) so Sternguard can benefit from the killing boosts their Vanguard brothers gain. Seems a little selfish at this point eh.
  8. After a recent patch of creative energy and finding/fixing my camera and flash, for the first time I actually have some finished miniatures I feel relatively happy sharing on here for C&C. First up, a Forge World Praetor - Captain Iskander Locke - to lead my Ultramarines. The theme is Scouring / 'early-40k' hence the use of a HH model. Not world beating painting, but I was aiming for a fairly grimdark, semi-Blanchitsu style which I hope I've achieved! Secondly, an old Dreadnought that has been sat in a box painted for years. Rather than stripping it, I instead worked on adding washed and neatening up the metallics, as well as adding weathering. The original paint job was clean but quite thick, which is why it looks a little bashed around. Have also JUST noticed the overspill of blue onto the back exhaust... Let me know what you think!
  9. For the Indomitus Crusade! Please enjoy my revamped Ultramarine blog/thread. Guilliman has awoken to a lot of change, and most of it isn't good.... We take on this challenge with the invention of the Primaris units, and the awakening of the Primarch. Chaos pushes us back, but yet we will prevail. This revamped blog turns the page into a new era, of painting, Primaris, battle reports and general Ultra coverage. Thank you for checking it out....
