To make it absolutely clear, right from the beginning - I'm not a total newbie having seen the oh so cool Ultramarines army at my local Games Workshop (in fact, they have a Blood Ravens army ^^) and wanting to play them, too. I am a veteran of about six years of 40k.
I made first contact with the hobby through the game "Chaos Gate" (which I still enjoy playing) and have been fascinated... well... right from the start ^^
Anyway, having gone through many armies and attempts to create a new chapter, I have decided to get back to the roots.
Here's a pic of the first five Marines.
The sergeant isn't finished yet; obviously he needs some work, like the insignia and the pouches attached to his belt.
Hope you noticed the little amount of effort I put into smaller details, like the aquila on my favourite marine's left knee cap and the words "manus dei" on the sarge's power fist.
They'll all be given a name as soon as I take care of the bases - haven't decided where to put them yet.
Ice wastes? Ash wastes? Urban... wastes? ^^
P.S.: CAN you see the highlighting? Need to take a better pic... Maybe tomorrow. Kind regards from Germany!
