Hi Folks, 

 

After a bit of a 40K hiatus, I finally caved and picked up the Indomitus box. While I would have loved to add these units to my Novamarines, I couldn't face painting any more units in those colours, primarily because it takes so long for me to complete a squad. 

 

Instead, I decided to stick with the Codex theme, and paint a new Ultramarines force. I've always had a soft spot for the Ultramarines, so thought this project will give me a chance to play around with all those fun codex themes that my previous armies never had, such as company colours, veterans, honour markings etc. 

 

Below is my first squad, which was done as a 'test' squad to see if I can get the scheme down quick. Quite pleased with how it has turned out:

Ended up using Macragge Blue spray, and then a all over shade of Drakenhoff, followed by a Calgar Blue drybrush, and Etherium Blue drybrush and then an all over glaze of Guilliman Blue mixed with a few drops of Lahmium Medium. 

 

All in all only took me a few hours (over a couple of days) to paint the squad, which is a massive improvement over my Novamarines, which took months in some cases (mainly due to motivation!). 

 

Up next are some Assault Intercessors from Indomitus, and then I am making plans for a Primaris Uriel Ventris conversion. 

 

C&C, as always, is appreciated. 

Cheers, 

WW

Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Very nice. That’s a nice rich blue you’ve accomplished there. If you can keep that pace going that would be a really great looking army.

I got to agree. Loving the blue on those models.

The skin tone is very crisp also.

Very nice job.

Thanks for the positive comment so far folks! 

 

Still full steam ahead with this project. Nearly finished with my first squad of Assault Intercessors, so thought I would share a few pics of where they are so far:

Really love these minis, so hoping to get them finished tomorrow. 

 

After that, another squad of Intercessors I think, then on to some characters. 

 

The fast method of doing the blue armour really helps me keep motivated, as it's great to knock these out so quickly compared to my previous projects. 

 

Cheers, 

WW

That's the same recipe for blue that I use. Of course, I'm not sure what I'll use when I run out of Guilliman Blue, but I have a little while if I avoid big models.

Your models looks great, I love the clean and clear style.

And I especially appreciate it when people paint different companies of the chapter.
