Ultramarines Company Veterans (and Sgt upgrades)

1 kommentarer
In my quest for finishing the 1. company, for variety, I decided to make two of my veterans into «company veterans», giving them Storm bolters and Storm shields.
While I was at it, I also decided to re-arm some of my 2. company Sgt (I have built Sgt so I can field them with several weapon options), with Storm bolters and Chain swords. I am starting to run short of bits (happy to say so now that I am getting closer to finishing my project).
Only 16 veterans to in my quest for the 1. company…

Ultramarines Devastators

After a couple of months painting white, gold and cloth, it was time to focus on models that I find a bit easier to paint.   Since day one I have always loved the Devastator Squads. To me, they portray the essence of the fire power Marines can field. I am a bit of a nutt-case. I already have 3 Devastator Squads, but often find myself “borrowing” heavy weapons from my Tactical Squads to arm them in the way I want to field them. That means that the squad markings are not correct, and that is a real problem… Hence, it was time to rectify that problem!
To me there is nothing more iconic than Heavy Bolters, so I built and painted 4 of them.

While I was at it, I also built and painted two models with Plasma Cannons, so I can field 4 of them with correct unit markings.

Finally, I built and painted two models with Las cannons, so I can field 4 of them with correct unit markings.

The whole batch of 8 Devastators

What next? I have to return to the remaining 18 models I need to complete my 1. Company. Wish me luck, the remaining models will take a lot of effort given my limited skills.

A new unit finally finished in my quest for finishing the 1. Company. This time, a new unit of Sternguard Veterans, and this time armed with Storm bolters.

The Sgt was also given a Chainsword

So, what is next? I need to paint something that does not have a lot of white!

Ultramarines HQ units with jump packs

4 kommentarer
I found it proper to field some HQ units with jump packs alongside my Vanguard veterans. I already have an old metal Chaplain model with jump pack, so I decided to go for a “Smash captain” (my take on it anyway – using relics), a Librarian and a Lieutenant. They are all in some way “kit bashed”. Great fun.

Ultramarines Vanguard veterans

Expanding and adapting the 1. Company, I decided to rearm some of my old metal Vanguard veterans, giving them some Storm shields and a Thunderhammer.

Next was to add a Veteran Sgt. and a Vanguard veteran with a Thunder hammer.

Going for the whole of the first company, I felt compelled to add a whole unit of Vanguard veterans with jump packs. Beautiful models, but they took a long time to build and paint. But in the end, I am happy having chosen them. This is how they turned out
