Ultramarines – Captain in Cataphractii Terminator Armour

My third 2017 project done; I needed a commander who could lead my Ultramarines during the upcoming Adepticon 2017 Team Tournament (as well as being a nice addition to my 1. Company).

I decided to arm him with a Combibolter, Storm Shied and Auspex. Yes I know, I kited the model with a Combibolter - the reason being I think it compliments the model much better then the more “bulky” Stormbolter. Since the model I used to a great extent is a “snap fit” model, I had to use a different arm then the kit provided. I therefore also had to add a shoulder pad. I decided to go with a terminator shoulder pad from Forge World (I guess it is not to far off having to change some of the armour plating during a couple of centuries of battle…). I also added a head with a helmet as I think it looks more in coherency with the rest of my force.

What next? Definitely more special weapons for my Tactical Squads.



  1. The blue, white and gold combination you've got going there (still) really works, and the rich red cape frames the model nicely.

    I think the pose works better than the one I went for. So much so, in fact, that I'm planning a new version for myself later in the year. (I just have to get a few bits together first...)

  2. Crisp and delicate colours and that touch of cartoon, though the model fortunatelu still is full of shading and dark tones. Great model. I think the shoulder guard worked better in RL than in the first pictures.

  3. Following the progress and conversion, you pillede it togehter to an amazing model. Cool stand, crisp highlights. Nice
