You can take Guilliman in any "Armies of the Imperium" force including IG, Sisters, any Space Marines etc. He's a Lord of War and so he's technically in his own detachment so I BELIEVE you can run him alongside any Space Marine army and keep your Chapter Tactics. I've not taken a LoW this edition so you may want to check on that.

Everybody and their brother are running him though he's recently gone up in points. He's ridiculously good... and once the Lion is released from FW (for 30k) I'm gonna be seriously tempted to do some count-as action just for fun once and awhile.   8)

Thanks, mate!
I want to make my 3000pts of Primaris another chapter besides the Wolves and really didn't want them to be Ulta Smurfs just to field Guilliman... Cheers pointy ears!

I dont think I've seen your Primaris yet... have you started painting them?

About the Ultramarines... I know people love to crap on them but I gotta say I actually think they are pretty awesome. I was really neutral on them for the longest time... but after reading Mark of Calth specifically Calth that Was by Graham McNeill (you can skip everything but his story IMO) I really came to love the UM's... Dudes have immense pride in their heritage and are stone cold killers towards their enemies. Their rivalry with the Word Bearers is pretty damn legendary too. If you have an interest in running Guilliman with the actual model, I'd at least think about using some Ultramarines or one of their successors. Sons of Orar are pretty damn awesome... Anyway just some food for thought my friend!

I felt the same about Ultras too, but the Space Marine video game (I had it on Xbox 360) is what changed my mind about them. Captain Titus is awesome, I really hope they make a sequel one day!

Though there are a lot of Ultras players locally, so I went with Aurora Chapter, one of their successors who are pretty much green Ultras :)

And thanks for the tip with Eshin Grey, I've not tried that colour before. I've got one of each of the old metal assassins, and they'd be great models to try it out on.

Hey, I'm loving your corsairs and reading through this (I'm up to page 19, not 82), but I loved your Exodite Outriders conversion even more. Can someone tell me if Cav continues the exodites? And if so, what page?

@Orange- You gotta get some Eshin Grey my man. Its just the BEST! Come to think of it... I probably wouldnt have started my Dark Angels without it. My Alaitoc/Shadowstrike guys would've been painted with blue highlights most likely... but yeah Eshin Grey is an absolute gem from GW. Also yeah I dig that Space Marine game. Its super fun... I had the demo... and its going for like $10 now. No excuse gotta get it!

@Loops- Hey Loops, thanks so much for jumping aboard! Sadly I haven't completed that project... I've got like 15 Cold Ones ready to rock (even a two-headed one!). At the time they were a cheap alternative to Eldar Jetbikes which were going for like $22 for a single bike. But fear not... I'm going to finish them some day. I'm gonna get some of the Fyre Slayer monsters to go alongside them too and have a really cool bunch of Exodites. Its definitley a ways down the road but I see those guys crying out from the bits box when I'm rifling through there... so they are not forgotten! Anyway thanks man and welcome to the forum!

Hey Cav, your models just keep getting better! In particular, Cawl is just majestic - and this got to mean something coming from a guy who's really not a fan of AdMech aesthetics :)

Excellent work!

@Seeking One- Sorry I missed your post bud. Thanks so much. I've got a lot issues with the Ad. Mech range as well so I totally feel you on that one. But thanks so much man it really means a lot.

Hey guys. Just a quick update but figured it looked pretty cool, so I thought I'd share. Currently out of models of my own to paint (with the exception of my Bonesinger) so I figured with the DA index inbound and my army very close to completion, I'd press on and continue to do more detailing work on my Dark Angels. So I re-painted their eyes from orange to yellow, added some transfers and weathered these guys up, particularly the Contemptor. Gonna redo the script on his banner with brown instead of red, but other than that these guys are done. Really happy to add those transfers. Got my Microset and Lahmian Medium out and really took the time to get them right. Hope you guys dig them. Anyway cant wait for the codex to drop... this army more than any other is the one I'm looking forward to playing ASAP

Can't wait for this Codex to drop... especially considering I have a battalions worth of troops, 10 Terminators and 2 HQ's already painted! Anyway thanks for stopping by guys talk soon!

Niiiiice!
Those termies are a hoot, mate. Look a little crowd controlly with those shields, (...or should I say horde controlly). I really like'm. Masterstroke with the weathering as always, Cavalier.

Hope I never come up against one of those contemtors. They look like tough nuts to crack. Keep up the inspiration, mate... Be well!

Excellent stuff! Love the weathering, and the black armour in general. Posing is cool too.

Nice work Cav. I liked these guys before, I love them now! The addition of the transfers helps bring some light and focus to the models, and that cleanliness is counteracted by the weathering, which is top notch.

Superb unit and a great update.

Beautiful work Cav, the firey thunder hammers are a really unique touch and match the colour scheme really well.

The weathering and vibrant reds are really on point. I hope the new codex treats them well, from memory the last one was a bit disappointing.

The weathering and the transfers are just sublime. Perfect placement and execution, as I've come to expect from such a master painter. Now if I could just get over those whack-a-mole hammers.  ;)
