Got a little productive ahead of time and got the blue down, with most of the metal done as well.

More to come!

Well, that was quick, brother. You might have nothing to do in February. :D

Hah! Sadly I go back to work tomorrow, these few things could sit there for a while after this burst of productivity.

Magnetized the HK missiles up top, the rest just comes on/off like normal.

First freehand banner ever, as you can tell by the fact it looks like a 5 year old did it. :)

WIP rhinos are all photobombing in the background.

The other vow pieces were come along ahead of schedule so I decided to add some marines that have been sitting around for too long in various states of doneness to the vow. From full on basecoat only marines, to just needing a few details added heavy weapons marines.

Looking great! Also, a nice banner on the Dread. Freehand banners always cause the most worry, but they also tend to be the most rewarding, because you can always take pride in them in the long run. Looking at your army brings back some long-buried feelings of nostalgia, because my very first 40k army was an Ultramarines force back in 3rd ed. Keep it up, and good luck completing your vow.

Dread looks really good! Good blue and highlights, the metalwork is nice too. My only advice would be to drill out the Bolter barrels.

Actually, I really like your banner. Your freehand skill doesn't need to be perfect- Everything looks uniform and clean. The checkers really balance the banner out when you look at it, and add to the appeal

Keep it up

Yah my pin vice all of a sudden won't clamp down hard enough on the smaller bits. I am gonna try taping it up and seeing if the extra padding on it helps.

Thanks! I am only really bothered the UM omega, but it ain't no thing to repaint it over if I have time once I finish the rest of my vow.

All looking good so far. One teeny weeny nitpick - some of the barrels need drilling. ;)

All in all, they be some nice Ultras !!!

Concerning the pin vice, if you have GW's (or any of the same design), there's a spare "clamp" bit in the base, it unscrews the opposite way, incase you were unaware it's there.

Cheers,
Jono

One more rhino/razorback down. Combat squad is all that's left to finish for my LPC vow!

Also it's my first attempt at bullet holes, and I'm quite pleased with the results. My pin vice has been acting shady after leaving some larger bits clamped in it and it wouldn't tighten on the smaller supplied bits any more; duct tape to the rescue!

(Muds are slightly different colour, I hadn't washed the new one yet with Devlan. Heh, washing mud. I AM SO FUNNY.)

Awesome job roooooot, really liking the mud fx on your rhino/razors, you finished a lot of your army in short time, would you put a pic of your painted army altogether here or in your Strike Force Malleus thread?
Keep the good work ;)

“Three Legions of Marines stand to defend you, sire. All of us will unflinchingly place ourselves between you and the war’s desolation.
We are the greatest humans ever born – we are the flame of Humanity where the rest of the galaxy is just the spark.
In centuries of warfare, against the vileness of the alien, the lies of the heretic, the foulness of the mutant,
I have never known fear – but your silence terrifies me.”

Thanks!

The mud is a cattafish / FF151 recipe: . I love doing it. The far future is grim and dirty; who has time to wash when you are smashing xenos heads in.

I've been meaning to slap together a full army photo for a bit now, I just gotta set it all up and borrow a camera. My iphone is ok for these close shots, but just gotta steal up something a little better for a detailed group shot.
