Hey Internet people, I've been watching this forum for ages and I love it, so many good painting threads. 

I always end up coming here for inspiration for my my own projects. 

 

So I decided to share some of my stuff. I am a mega ultramarines fanboi, love them and there background and lets face it they are the best legion, its basically in there name. 

 

So to the viewing screen.

I use these guys with a Praevian. I like the look of these robots more than FW castellax, bit weird I know but its all good.

This guy was one of my fist painted ultras so his a lot lighter then the rest, I'll get around to painting him again.

I use this guy as ventanus and his pimp command squad.

Some vets and tacs. Veterans are my MVP's every game, they are underestimated all the time and always bring home the bacon.

Next on the painting table is a sicarian, 5 susans and guilliman. Here is a sneak peek at the bases for my susans.

And maybe potentially another legion I may start on.

Thanks for any comments, and Guilliman for warmaster.

...That doesn't look like a ultramarine... 

Now I know how Guiliman felt when meeting those survivors from calth... 

Real good looking ultras man, your vehicles are top notch

Always happy to see a fellow UM devotee. Outstanding work mate loved the white on the vehicles really makes them stand out. Can't wait to see more.

Cheers fellas.
Uni holidays is soon, so I will be getting a bit more done then.

That fella on the bike is an imposter. There may be more in the ranks.

I'm keen to paint up a whole bunch of contemptors, I really like the models and they don't play to badly either. 5-6 with a buff from guilly wouldn't go astray.

Awesome stuff. I like the muddy and weathered look the models have. The rhino sold me on this thread, tbh =) 

 

Looking forward to more.

After finishing exams and moving house I managed to get this fella done. Sitting in an empty house painting over a coffee table between move days kept me sane.
I've been experimenting lately with different chipping methods and styles and mixing them together to try find something that's easy and that I'm happy with, you can kinda see the progression over the tanks shown in this thread. I think the next vehicle I paint will be pretty close to how I want it and will look really good for a minimal work investment.

So here is a sicarian I painted up, I bought this off someone and it wasn't put together very well, with a few gaps around the place, I didn't have my green stuff close and wanted to paint something. Was super fun to paint this tank though and I'm keen to get another.

If anyone has any questions on how I did anything feel free to ask, I love talking about painting styles and techniques and everything I do I try to find the easiest way which makes the process more enjoyable for me as I don't spend a lot of time agonising over one part.

No kill marking on this guy yet as his yet to earn his stripes as an ultramarine.

Cheers guys. Really enjoying painting these ultras now that I have the blue how I like it.

Next up on the block is a scimitar praetor and attached command squad.

I'll be getting some games in soon, so I'll take some pics and write up a bat rep.

Hey Guys, 

Just had a 2500pt game against a good mates iron warriors. I took a bunch of pics and thought I'd write up a short batrep while its fresh. 

 

A brief rundown of lists: 

Ultras
Praetor with the works on a scimitar - PotLegion
4 command on bikes - 2 fists
Pravean w/ 2 castelax, darkfires, enhanced targeting

2 vet units with a bunch of upgrades in rhinos
9 seekers combi plas 

contemptor - 2 grav fists

sicarian - las
phobos - ram

Iron warriors
seigebreaker
MoS

2 tacs in rhinos
5 termies in phobos
6 tyrants

2 medusa
sicarian las
doredeo

contemptor grav fists

We played a relic mission where the ultras where trying to secure a raven guard survivor with vital information on traitor movements. 
I won the roll off and decided to deploy first and go first as I wanted to force some shaken results or better on him before his heavy shooting could smack me around. 

EEB0AD83-3363-47CA-8122-63E4F7229BC1_zps

 

This is deployment, as u can see a pretty standard across the line deployment. Luckily for me he did not place his S10 shooting across from my jetbikes in the bottom left corner. 
And just a little shot through the ruins as my raider and contemptor move up into kill range.

FA4B481D-6543-4719-84F0-AE46EEBEC9AA_zps

 

After my first turn I put 2 hull points on a rhino and a shaken result on 1 medusa. Quite an underwhelming offensive first turn. I turbo boosted my scimitars up the right side to put pressure on the flank, while my vet rhinos moved to the ruins and popped smoke. 

My opponents first turn saw 2 hull points on my sicarian from the contemptor as well as his whole armies shooting to take down my 2 rhinos (some hot 5+ cover rolls) and killing two in the explosion. He also disembarked his termies ready for a charge against my scimitars.

as you can see from this pic, the battle did not go well for him with 1 wound caused to my praetor and his unit evaporated thanks to my paragon blade praetor showing them who's boss. 

 

My second turn i moved the castelax out for a better shot on his contemptor and moved my sicarian for side shots in the medusa. My melta vets muphed up towards his sicarian and my contemptor pushed through the ruins to get close to his rhino. I left my raider and seekers where they were as I wanted him to move closer with his tyrants (the marked unit) to get into full rapid fire range. 

My shooting saw my castelax down his contemptor and explode it, while my contemptor in the middle wrecked his rhino with grav. My command squad also moved up to melta bomb the raider who had moved close from last turn.

B60CC95B-7882-4F36-B985-6DBA38680CEA_zps

In combat my command squad exploded his raider with melta while my dread made a long bomb charge through terrain to reach his tacs. He however must have stumbled on the way in as he only caused 1 wound. 

2D63C149-211D-4E52-8A8A-ADBD5F51AFA2_zps

 

The iron warriors next turn, the tyrants moved into close assault range of the contemptor and the sicarian moved for maximum damage on my scimitar command squad. Shooting from the medusas and MoS barrage saw my vets reduced to a few guys each with the melta squad breaking and falling back. The sicarian also lined up on my flag bearer and shot him out of the sky with precision.  

C9C40CDD-09AF-43F7-B083-5C65A78218C6_zps

 

In the assault phase he handily killed my dread while I scored no wounds in return.

My turn and it was time to strike, i moved my seekers out and lined up on his tyrant unit with attached siege breaker. My vets rallied and my command squad moved in to charge his tacs. 
My sicarian tore through his medusas reducing them to smoking rubble while my castelax turned on his deredeo nearly killing it. 

In my shooting phase i opened up on the tyrants and missed not a single shot, rolled to wound and scored full wounds on him. Needless to say the unit was reduced to a pile of slag. 

 

41F09A71-5EAF-4C29-840C-D118988ACC3E_zps

 

With that my command squad made combat and slaughtered the tacticals to a man. 

 

4E0230C7-D0B9-4475-9BD1-8C82B6A24925_zps

 

With that my opponent called the game as he has a MoS and 10 tacs in a rhino alive. So I pulled out the practical caravan coral technique, got me raven guard buddy and opened fire. 

 

3464DEDF-6FF5-4F34-94DB-8897F4D4A45C_zps

 

Was a good game, and hopefully we get our other terrain built and it all painted for the next run. A few other mates are also making tables so there should be a good mix. Seans Iron warriors are super well painted which always makes the games that much nicer.

I have the bases built for my scimitars and the base colour down so I should have them completed in the next week or so. 

Hope you enjoyed this short bat rep.

Cheers Nat, i hope to get a few more done. I was even thinking about video Bat reps as there aren't a lot on YouTube that I could find. 

 

A wip of the scimitars. Making good use out of the free time I have right now. 

 

B75C680F-544C-44B4-ADF7-088B8CFA8782_zps

 

With the new plastics box coming out I was going to replace my 40k seekers with 30k. I however wanted to keep a unit as a 'censured' or a Theil unit. Do you think that seekers fit the bill for this?
