Ultramarines (Challenge Complete!)

Postby Killian » Fri Jan 10, 2014 7:52 am

Been listening to the podcast for a while now and finally decided I'll commit myself to the Hobby Progress Challenge this year!

I've been playing Ultramarines for a long time and while I have a significant portion painted up, the new Codex release changed up my forces so I've got some more models to paint! The first 1,000 point list isn't meant to be really competitive at that level but a smaller selection of a larger, more competitive list.

Here are some samples of previously painted models so you can see the level I'm aiming for.

And for my 1,000 point list:

*DONE*Chapter Master Khal Drogomius - 255pts
Bike
Shield Eternal
Artificer Armour
Thunder Hammer
Auspex

*DONE*Chief Librarian Tigurius - 165pts

*DONE*Bike Squad - 177pts
6 Bikes
2 Grav Guns

*DONE*Bike Squad - 167pts
6 Bikes
2 Meltaguns

*DONE*Tactical Squad - 145pts
10 Marines
Flamer

Scout Squad - 99pts
9 Scouts

Total = 1,008 Points (Within the +/- 10 point threshold.)

Courage and honour brother! Another ultramarines player ;) got to love the smurfs! The line highlighting on those centurions is really crisp. I like it, keep up the good work!

Thanks guys!

I got the rest of my bikes in the mail today so I'm assembling them while rendering some videos I'm working on. Should have some commitments posted tomorrow.

Looking really good. I like it when folks give the white portion of the Ultras some more exposure.

Happy to report that my February commitment of a Bike Squad is complete!

Basing isn't 100% and I'm waiting for my drill bit to drill out the barrels but they are pretty much done. Let me know what y'all think!

I would like to draw special attention to the Salute the Sgt is directing towards the enemy.

Side and back angle view so you can see the shoulder pads and the screens.

Two more, one of them has the more scenic base.

Last two.

This one is exposed a bit darker to show the weathering done on the white shoulder pads. The reason for the white shoulders pads is the bikers will eventually be part of a White Scars detachment so to better separate them from models in the Ultramarines Primary.

Gonna take a break from painting infantry and do one of my Storm Talons for my July commitment. I need it painted for an upcoming tournament any ways.

I did this conversion by chopping off the tail and putting the tail from a Stormraven with the back fins flipped upside down. I moved the missiles to the wings and the Assault Canons to the engine housing. Gives it much more of an attack fighter feel and the missiles on the wings gives it juuuuust a bit more of a wider stance.

Realized as I was posting this I wrote Stormtaly... yea... not intentional! HAHA!
