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.
