  • Even though the weight would probably snap it's spine, I'd love to see a captain riding that bird  (biker legs, captains torso, long billowing cape).  If I had the time I'd put it together, especially as I have a half drop pod/fast deploy and half artillery marine army, I think it'd be fitting.  But I also don't use a captain :p  I might have to make one up just for display purposes though.  The bird does look very clean, what methods and colours did you use?



    A little while attacking ebay and I've now bought one of those birds and most of the bits to put together a flying HQ.  Now just to find a good chest to use for him, and decide what kind of HQ to make out of him.  Might just make my own rules, a hit and run jump pack HQ with deep strike and a strong charge.  Thanks for the inspiration artcore :D

     ??? That's a pretty radical idea!!!  :o I'd like to see that happening: please send me some pictures of your conversion.

    Yeah my High Elves are going to be very white, clean and supernatural. That's why I wanted the bird to be very white.
    After black basecoat I used Graveyard Earth, then Bleached bone. On this I put a layer of black wash for the shading. Then again Bone in a drybrush to keep the shades. After that I drybrushed with Bone mixing with White. I'll add another 'almost pure white' highlight.

  • Man I really do need to get some good washing inks.  I'll use some watered down paints, but this doesn't always get the effects I want (kickass for Eldar cloaks though and some psyker/power weapons).  I'll have to find some way to do something equivalent with my bird.  Time for a paint order anyway!

    For me, Dhabab Black Wash is a real winner  8) I use it on all my Ultra's metal parts, on the armour, shoulder plates. Actually I use it to 'blackline' about anything: small black lines that seperate the different colours, just like how comics are drawn  :D

  • Yes! I've been painting again!

    This Rhino/Razorback was 80% painted for some time so I finished it in the last 2 days. I already have 2 rhino's and a razorback so this one can be transformed into both.

    On this one I've experimented a lot more on battle damage and shading; pretty satisfied with the result.

    Rhino:


    Back:


    Razorback:


    Mech Madness:


    Also I'm working on a Typhoon Landspeeder:


    Yesterday I wanted to start on the crew but I couldn't find them  >:( they must be somewhere...

    Hope to show you some finished Assault Terminators soon.

  • Hey, I'm back again. Didn't paint anything in the last months and didn't do much wargaming either.

    Yesterday I've started again and I wanna show you the results: a Typhoon Landspeeder and an Assault Terminator! Two of my favorite models that were waiting to be finished.

    Sorry for the bad quality pics; wish I had a better camera for this.

    Terminator with Lightning Claws:










    Landspeeder Typhoon:






    Hope to have some more results to show you soon!

  • Hi ArtCore!
    I've just looked over your blog. And not to offend, but first I thought they was pretty boring and didn't seem so good.
    But after some time, I realized that your minis are really really nice! :D
    You've got a really good blue scheme and nice chipping.
    I especially like your combination of colours that makes your Ultramarines unique, and I also like to see how much you've evolved through the blog. I was so wrong about your marines, sorry for that, keep up the good work! :)

  • @Styranimon Yeah those first marines were not so good  >:( took me some time to get into it. My painting experience before this army was purely fantasy, so I had to develop an idea on how to paint sci-fi models and develop the Ultramarines paint scheme.

    Just finished 2 more Assault Marines, now with shield and hammer. Will post some pics later.

  • I just don't understand how you find the time!  I haven't played a match in more than a year and haven't had a chance to paint or model in 6 months.  Granted I'm a lot more busy than most...

  • Hey Artcore,

    I've not been around much the last few months but wanted to say that you have got loads done, and you can really see how much this army has developed over time.

    I really like the accent colours on the vehicles too, reminds me of 2nd edition Ultras without being retro if you know what I mean?
    Dig in, and wait for winter.

    For me it's the same, didn't paint or play for over 8 months. Just picked it up last week. Thing is; I have a lot of WIP models waiting to be finished. So when I set myself to finishing them, I can finish a model in a day.

    Hi Chris nice to hear from you again. Yeah I've been away from the hobby & forum myself too. But now winter's kicking in again in Holland I found the urge to paint again :)

    Yeah it looks cool in my display cabinet, but not so good for taking pictures.
    I'll try to find time to make an army shot... someday

    Tonight I'm gonna play a game again. 1750 against deamons at the local game club.

  • More progress!

    Two bad boys with hammers:



    Regular bolter marine and Lascannon:



    I've been brooding on these guys for some time: Chaplain Cassius and Vulkan He'stan. Finally decided how to model them.

    Vulkan has an Ultramarine symbol now:


    Since I hate the old Cassius model and want to use him in my games, I've done this conversion:
