Hi there!
 
It's been more the 10 years since I last posted on the forum. So much time has passed that I can't even find my old threads... However, I stand ready to redeem myself!
 
In recent years, every time I start a new project, I make a plog in the relevant forum to help me keep track and to keep me motivated. It seems to work for me, so here I am!
 
Some background: Converting Space Marines has always been tremendous fun for me, and it's been way too long since I last did anything of the sort. I've decided to rescue my old Black Templars from 3rd Ed. and convert them to Ultramarines (yeah... age will do that to you... Beware!). I took everything that I had, a few recent purchases, and I could amass half a company. Left some in the Break fluid, took the knife to some others, and started to assemble the rest. Here is how it's going:
 
Ultramarines WIP
Ultramarines%252520Wip%2525201.jpg
 
Rogue Trader inspiration:
Heresy%252520Era.jpg
 
Sicarius WIP (I missing the appropriate helmet bit)
Sicarius%252520Wip.jpg
 
The old Space Hulk Terminators next to the newer models seem a bit stunted, so I decided to upgrade them:
 
2rd Ed Space Hulk Terminators Upgrades
2ed%252520Terminators%252520Upgrade.jpg
 
Finished Terminator Tactical Squads
Terminator%252520Squads.jpg
 
And since I have a "few" 2nd Edition Starter Set minis laying around, posing as statues, I'll be giving them a new life as well:
 
2ed Space Marines Upgrades
2ed%252520Space%252520Marines%252520Upgr
 
 
2nd Ed. Chaplain and Librarian with upgrades:
 
Librarian%252520%252526%252520Chaplain.j
 
Command Squad:
 
Command%252520Squad.jpg
 
Next I'm going to finish converting the old statues and I'll be ready to start painting!
 
Hope you'll enjoy!

These are great, loving the retro feel to them and lovely clean paint jobs.

Also some of those models brought back fond memories. :)

Thank you!

 

Having come into the hobby when 2nd Ed was kicking off, these old color schemes have always resonated with me.

That's a pretty damn good TT standard, brother. Crisp I think is the word.

Damn it all... Why oh why oh why did I sell my 1st edition space wombles????


Those are epic old chap... ( I can say that as I joined the hobby when white dwarf was in double didgets (think my first was no. 88) ... Thus am an older chap ! The terminator rebuild is something I have never considered... Better dig mine out!

Wow, welcome back. I became a fan of this thread the minute I saw those grey marines, lovingly salvaged and updated. Then came the pictures of painted mini's. You certainly didn't loose your painting tricks in the decade you where away from the hobby. Wonderful colour scheme dude. I love it.

I am loving the bright clean colours of those guys. Very in keeping with the old school WD days. Really takes me back.

 

Don't think I could handle doing Ultramarines though. Maybe Howling Griffon's or something. No! I have enough projects on the go!


My B&C WIP Thread is this one (but more pictures generally end up on the blog).

Awesome marines!  Loving the clean classic look, with all the highlights etc they look SO much better than the ones GW did back in the day.  Looking forward to seeing your terminators painted up.

 

Love the basing too, good choice with the black edges

Thanks! I haven't been away completely though. My brush has dabbled on other projects, however, shamefully, 40k 28mm has been left in the drawer for the last decade. It's good to be back though!

Thanks! I'm quite pleased with the bases as well. An experiment that yielded nice results.

 

Now for some progress. I usually don't like batch painting, but I've decided I'd try again for the next 5, while listening to some Horus Heresy novels.

Still have to apply the decals, but I'm out of varnish. It should be along shortly, and I'll do this one and the next Squad together next time.
