Hey there,

I normally post on the IG boards, but as I have very recently started a couple of Space marine Armies I thought I'd throw my hat in and stick up some pics.

I hope it's Ok to post work in progress stuff.

Anyway here's the start of my Black Templars:





And my Ultramarines:




Obviously still along way to go, neither one is actually an army yet, but I am painting the Ultramarines as part of a Tale of Four gamers challenge running in the Projects Board, and so I should have 1500 points completed at the end of July.
Dig in, and wait for winter.

First, thank you all for the compliments!

Eek, those Salamanders are top notch, and Chris, your Ultramarines have a very classic feel, like the kind of marines you'd see in the Codex itself.  I'm a big fan of your Cadian 8th, also.

Vaughn, you pulled off orange and black without making me think immediately of Halloween.  Well done!  I especially like the diagonal bar across the Dreadnought.  Any reason why you named your chapter "Vaughn?"

I was at sea when I started my venture into 40K with moc065. My original plan was to get a tiger pattern going. However through some carefull research in some bad attempts by others. Not by Heimdall he did it quite well I think, I turned away. Not to mention my experience painting was quite futile to try let alone my patience.

Anyway back to your question as to why I named my chapter "Vaughn". Orange happened to be my son's favorite colour. His middle name is also ...
Vaughn ... and since he was quite drawn to my Gundams and Robotech, I had a feeling he would be more then excited to see the mini army guys. Hence his addiction to bond with Dad with 40K Space marines now too... Much to his Mom's cringing dislike. LOL Expense wise anyway.

So that is how the Vaughn Chapter came to be. Glad you liked it.

I have a second dread I am readying to paint now, more then likly similar in scheme however a opposite diagnal to differ the two.

As I finish the rest of my army, scouts, assault termies, another tac squad, a dread and another captain I will be posting the pics again. The termies however are going to be unique. I just hope it works.

Cheers

Hey Guys,

Cheers Eek, I'm pretty pleased with how they've turned out, and am glad they feel "Codexey" as that was the look I was after. And cheers for the comment about my Cadians, I miss painting them but I'm waiting for the new Codex before I do any more.

As I have been painting up some more Ultramarines I thought I would stick a couple of pics up.

These guys aren't quite finished yet but as I had the camera this week I thought I'd get some work in progess shots.

5 man Ultramarines Tactical Squad:





Rhino Transport:







Along with my scouts this will make up the first 250 points of my army. I still have to finish the Rhino and glue on the boltguns, but they're nearly there.

Hey Raktra,

I have thought about applying for a position with 'Eavy Metal once or twice but decided that unfortunately although it would be a dream job it just doesn't pay enough.

It's a sad fact that Games Workshop is a fantatstic employer (despite what many people may think I worked for them for a very long time and they were a great employer who taught me loads) but they pay very low wages.

Plus I think you have to relocate to Nottingham which at this point in my life isn't a possibility, but I'm not ruling it out altogether.

I'm chuffed that you think I'd be in with a shot though, and I'd love to see if they'd have me just to learn how to paint more quickly if nothing else!

And as for recognising me yes I do get around a bit and my hair kind of gives me away!  ;D

Next time you see me come and say hi, it would be great to meet fellow 40KOnliners (is that word....)

Cheers!  :)

It's a shame about that, you really do have the skill.

Finished up a couple of my tanks for the Sallies.

Vulkan's Fist (Land Raider Redeemer)







And an as yet unnamed Predator






Gotta love the Forge World tank bits!

As always Eek, your painting is a joy to the eye. Truly amazing work. The same goes to all of the other painters in this thread, you are all fantastic.

I thought about posting some of mine, but not after seeing these :P.

Keep up the good work!

Isn't that the wrong way?

Hey guys, there is some lovely stuff on here! I love those Salamanders Eek, and its good to see some Space Wolf love too! And all those Ultras, makes me want a Thunderhawk, must resist....

Well my own Ultramarines army is progressing, so I thought I would post some pics of my new stuff. These are still very much Painting in Progress, but they are close enough to completion to show.

Scout Squad 2:
Sergeant Combi Plasma, Heavy Bolter, 3 x Bolters







Space marine captain: Relic blade, Combi Melta




Army so far: 500 points

My painting skills aren't up to the same standard as most of this thread but, here are my most recent additions.

Ironclad, on this one I decided to go with a large sword instead of the normal fist for the DCCW.


Here are all my dreads with the Master of the Forge, I'm getting a Siege Dread from FW to round out my dreadnought army.

a brown wash on the skulls and scrolls would make a great change, and start practising drybrushing it is a great way to make a miniature look like it i painted very well (i use it a lot, i suck at highlighting)

do i see warmachine parts? heresy and blasphemy! ;D

Just want to comment on how GOOD these armies look!

Haha, and we're all so polite here, not spamming the compliments we're all thinking and making this into a 465-page long thread with 10 pics.  Good netiquette, but I think we can give these people some more applause, amirite? =)
