Hello! 

I have finally got off my backside and sat down to write my plog. Having read a lot of other peoples work and seen some amazing stuff, I wanted to join in

 

I have collected Ultramarines since my return to the hobby around 2 years ago, when Betrayal at Calth came out I knew I had to get it and start a Heresy Army. 

 

Know No Fear is my favourite novel (so far) in the BL range and therefore I wanted to base my army around the great betrayal. The great thing is about building a Calth army is that there were so many Companies / Chapters at the muster that all I had to do was simply pick a number and voila the 42nd was born!

 

As this is a plog, I guess I will have to show some of my work, here's my first entry:

 

Captain Marcus Arias (my Avatar).

Centurion Marcus Arias of the XLII Company, Vth Chapter Ultramarines, 
His company massacred on the surface of Calth and separated from his Legion and Primarch.  He formulated his only practical: seek out nearby Legio XIII assets and reform the XLII Company.  
Despite the searing radiation and being dogged by Traitor Forces at all steps, Arias was able to recover enough Ultramarine assets to form a versatile fighting force.  Answering calls for help from his fellow brethren vengeance awaits

A short update for tonight.. I am slowly working up a 2.5K list, I have some units already finished. But being quite a fussy person I wanted to finish all my models a certain way.

 

Here's a recent finished squad of Cataprachtii:

WIP, a Master of Signal: I am not really sure how I am going to use him yet.

And finally a Choom Squad WIP:

A small update tonight: 

 

Here is my Remus Ventanus conversion using the Ultramarine Herald as a base model.  I took the arm off the Plastic Mk III kit and the head is from the BA upgrade kit. He's my standin Praetor, until we get an official FW model.

Next up:

 

As every good squad of invictarii needs a medic, here's Apothecary Vigo

I hate painting white.

 

I am currently distracted by Primaris Space Marines, however I have an event in Sept to attend and I need a fully painted UM force for that.

You too are distracted by Primaris!

 

What is your build up for white?

I layer up from grey to it, with Citadel's Ulthuan Grey being almost white enough to just be highlighted with something like White Scar.

Ha, yeah, it takes me an age to build and paint a single squad now I have a load of Primaris marines to paint!

 

My white is layered up from Grey - Multiple thin coats. I started with several coats of Dawnstone and then used an off white, Pallid Wych Flesh with a final thin layer of White Scar.

 

I found that a thinning Nuln Oil with Lamium medium works a treat for shading white.

I just discovered pallid wych flesh for white, it's helped a lot on my Ultras. Much easier to shade and highlight. IMO a lot of the time, you don't even need to paint white over it. It's 'white enough' that it appears white on the mini.

 

By the way, it might just be my browser, but your pictures appear super small. The ones that are linked from imgur I can expand, but your first post and latest post I am having trouble seeing the details.
