Ultramarines Devastators

2 kommentarer
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.

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.

Ultramarines Sternguard Veterans

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

Ultramarines Scouts

My last post on my Ultramarines army was back in February 2018. During the summer of 2018 I bought and built the remaining models that would forfill my goal of also be able to field the whole of the 1. Company alongside my “finished” 2. Company. An extensive project… I also decided to add a couple of other units / models that would compliment my UM army as a whole.

First out, a unit of Scouts.
