Ultramarines 5th Company Project
« on: December 03, 2016, 06:59:17 PM »
I thought I'd make a thread to add my Ultramarines 5th Company models to and keep myself motivated.

I chose the Ultramarines because I enjoyed the Xbox game a lot and they looked pretty cool and relatively easy to paint and learn to play.

Having read up on the background, I liked the idea of the polar fortress battles but in the end I wasn't a huge fan of my attempts at snow bases or tying my army look into a single enemy theme.

Looking a bit deeper, I decided that the 5th company looked like it had a lot of scope. I wanted them to be pretty gritty and the idea of the 'Master of the Marches' being the Captain sounded pretty good. I thought it had the theme of a Company which spent its time out patrolling border space of Ultramar and undertaking spoiler attacks on the filthy alien! I've gone for a darker blue than usual and done a few armour and weapon swaps to try and get across the feel of an army on campaign.

I hope you like the pics, I still need to come up with some names for characters and stuff, so if you'd like to pitch in that would be great!

Here's my most recent addition.

I got my Captain painted!

I'll be painting one up in Terminator armour too but I wanted to get this guy done first. He's OK for tabletop though I'm not sure on his loadout
