ØRNULVS APRIL 2011 PROJECT Re-revisiting the Ultramarines 2.

And then they where three!

My goal was to be able to field several ordinary dreadnoughts with various weapon combos. The Venerable Dreadnought model comes with three different Heavy Weapons. Together with a couple of weapon arms from Forge World, this model would give me the options I needed.

I wanted to be able to field the Venerable Dreadnought as both a “Venerable” and a “Ordinary” Dreadnought. Therefore I used the “built in sarcophagus” and kept the amount of gold trimmings to a minimum. Still, I wanted it to look more ancient, so I used the engraved plates giving them a dark copper/brass colour. Using the same design on the three weapon arms, and using them on the other two models, would give them a unified look. I loosened the existing arms on my old Dreadnoughts, gave them a make over with Scripts and Seals, and used magnets on all the Weapon Arms.

Above all three Dreadnoughts fielded, two with AssaultCannons. Next, the PlasmaCannon option:

Here, the MultiMelta option:

And last, the LasCannon option:

Planning to start the "move process" in May/June, I am not sure I will start a new project in May. I have decided to build to more CombiMelta Sgt, but I need two sets of legs and banners. If anyone has some spares left, please let med know. Maybe I could build two more models before summer….?

Cheers,

Ørnulv

  1. Another re-visit... Another upgrade of the Ultramarine Armory. ...and another excellent job on updating the Emperor's glory-boys.

    I especially like the heat-distorted colurs on the Multi-meltas. Perhaps you should do something similar on the Plasma Cannons?
