Ultramarines Gallery

Post#1 » Jun 11 2009 02:10

I would like to show you my first completed WH40k army, the Ultramarines 3rd Co.

Prior to this, I had never put together a model; I had never even used super glue! So, all things considered, I am fairly proud of my work. These are painted to tabletop quality, though there are a few small details here and there.

There are more units than these - I have not had time to photograph everything. I am open to criticism, so please leave comments! Hopefully I will have a chance to share more soon.

All I can say is well done - they're of a really good standard, and considering you said you'd not built a model before I think they're great. The best thing you've done is the photography though - they really look like they're zooming around waging some sort of war!

What I'd like to see you do now is something really special - like a character model and spend some quality time with it - clearly you can paint to a good table-top standard, but I suspect you could do even better!

Good stuff :D

Very nice! I think you did an amazing job. Now try some conversions!

btw, do I spy some Forgeworld shoulderpads?

I really like that glow coming from the Captain's eye. The weathering looks fantastic, too (Space Marines don't come off the production line, after all).

Something I would look forward to seeing might be painting the numerous lenses on the Rhinos. Using that same technique you achieved the Captain's eye with would look great coming from the transports headlamps.

actually, I revisited this topic and do I spy an older rhino? or just a bunch of body work?

Gotta love these Ultramarines, They don't look like Bright happy smurfs, more like Battle hardened warriors, great job on the models, and like others have said, great job on the weathering.
