Hi all, been a few months since I last posted anything on here but I've still been active in the hobby non the less.

I've come back with the intention of building a Demi-battle company but before that I thought I'd start with Vulkan himself circa m41

First of all I needed to take care of the Ultramarines chapter symbol on the shoulder pads with a bit of greenstuff work:

Then, seeing as the base model has an overabundance of aquillas as it is I made a little change to the chestplate with a small Wolf skull and some greenstuff horns:
med_gallery_94458_12983_1511447.jpg

Then gave him a bit of a shave :P and also (not pictured) removed the laurel wreath
med_gallery_94458_12983_137051.jpg

Then, a small addition to the Iron halo that comes with the kit using parts from the torches
med_gallery_94458_12983_380508.jpg

I then added a drakescale cloak made from greenstuff and shaved off a few details such as the symbol on the knee pad, the number 13 on the belt and the purity seal on his chest plate.

I also decided not to include the giant eagle thing on the backpack as I think it made everything a bit too busy.
med_gallery_94458_12983_240995.jpg

And here's it all painted up, I've gone with a sort of blue lava for the base, (something I'll be carrying over to the rest of the army) for something a bit different to what I'm used to doing

All c&c is appreciated and thanks for looking :)

Thanks guys! Yeah the manager of my local GW hinted as much when I told him what I intended to do XD

Still, I couldn't wait :P

Perhaps I'm biased (look where we all are...), but that looks *so* much better than the base/standard Guilliman. Incredibly well done; I love it.

WOW!!! That. Is. Beautiful. Fantastic work, I envy your ambition and your green stuff skills. Plus the paint job is fantastic, especially the flaming sword. If it only were a hammer....

 

Again, you totally rock. Thank you for proving me right.... Vulkan most certainly lives.

Amazing job! Now it looks just right to me. This ornate armor never looked good to me with RG.

Now it works.

 

Thank you for that! :D

 

And please what? We'll might get a Vulkan sooner than later? :o

This is my mod voice. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My mod voice is a means to an end.

Let us avoid it, alright?

Thanks very much everyone! :)

I've got a decent little 750pt force in the works and will post some pics up tonight,

I'll be leaving it there once completed for the time being as the project I've got going on in the Liber is taking up a lot of time (a strike force is a lot to do when starting from scratch XD)

If you field him alongside Vulkan He'stan are you going to swap out He'stan's left arm?

They can't BOTH be wielding Vulkan's artefact flamer.

Thanks alot guys!
Do it Ben! You'll not regret it :D let me know how it goes :)

I won't be fielding him the same time as he'stan (although it could be that he has made a mini version for himself after vulkan came back XD

Here's some picks of everything finished:

Also, here's my attempt at a hammer

med_gallery_94458_12983_111183.jpg

med_gallery_94458_12983_77475.jpg

Now onto He'stan:

And a dreadnought (with a kit-bashed multimelta to make it look a bit different)
med_gallery_94458_12983_55592.jpg

Decided to add some little greenstuff details; after all, wouldn't be Salamanders without a touch of bling XD
med_gallery_94458_12983_66632.jpg
med_gallery_94458_12983_76198.jpg

Here's the 4th tactical squad, 2nd company:
med_gallery_94458_12983_128231.jpg

And another squad, the special weapons marine is proudly welding nocturne's fury; made possible with a little greenstuff :)
med_gallery_94458_12983_84357.jpg

And finally a little army shot of what I've got so far, with added drop pod that I forgot to take a solo pic of.
med_gallery_94458_12983_47803.jpg

And that's it for now, in the meantime I've got a homebrew chapter strikeforce to finish. If you get the time, or just happen to be browsing in the Liber, look up the Knights Obstinate and let me know what you think so far.

But for now, let me know what you think of this lot, all c&c is appreciated and as always, thanks for looking :)

Your Vulkan is most impressive.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Thanks very much guys, I hope to re-edit the salamanders soon now my Liber challenge is done, the only thing I now need to decide is do I add the primaris marines to my home-brew chapter or do I add them to my salamanders?
