Noigrim: I see what you're saying. I actually like them to be all different sizes, but they are probably a little bigger than they need to be, so I will watch that. I appreciate the feedback :)

Bjorn, naryn, ranulf: thank you guys! I'm glad you like it! :)
Its, "space wolf," not "Space Wolf," or "SPACE WOLF," or "spacewolf" I'm the only Astartes cool enough to spell his name without capital letters! But if you're feeling decorous, you may add a "THE" in front of it.

Taking a break from painting these guys, and building my Indomitus Captain.  I don't actually have one of those, so an intercessor body, will have to do.

Off to a promising start. I like the eagle talons on the feet.
I noticed that the eagles you sculpted only have one head rather than the two headed Imperial Aquila symbol.
Is that to fit with the Roman theme?

Partially yes, but also because I kind of feel aside from the chest aquilla, two headed eagles should be a rarity. Ultras have a lot of eagle iconography due to their roman influence, but the squilla is the symbol of the emperor so that should be reserved for custodes or something more official. Does that ramble make sense?

 Makes total sense to me. I'm not sure whether that should worry or reassure you though.

So, I need everyone's help.  I can't decide what helmet to give this captain.  I have the one from the Ultramarines upgrade sprue...which looks good.  But I also have a modified victrix helmet, which also looks good.  The question is, if I go with the victrix, would he be confused for a victrix?   Also, should I give this guy a cape or something?  See pics below.

My personal preference is the upgrade sprue helmet. The Victrix plus crest doesn’t do it for me. Too many things going on.

Also vote for the upgrade sprue helmet! Not sure about a cape, I really like the shaping on the back rn and itd be a shame to cover it up. Maybe some long purity seals could give a similar effect without hiding so much?

I also have to recommend the upgrade helmet.  The Victrix helmets look too busy, and I don't think they actually fit the Ultramarine aesthetic, even on the Victrix Guard.

Another for the upgrade sprue helmet here, as has been mentioned the Victrix helmet is quite busy and on a model that already has a lot going on, might be a good idea to have something a little simpler to rest the eye on? Think I said that right...

Use the one from the upgrade sprue. The Victrix helmet is best reserved for a Victrix Guard Captain/Champion- the "wings cover my mouth, preventing me from speaking" is NOT appropriate for someone who has to make his orders heard across a noisy battlefield, like a Company Commander.

Excellent work on the green stuff additions.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

Yeah, the upgrade sprue helmet looks better to my eyes.

Well the vote was practically unanimous, so I went with the upgrade sprue head.  I present to you....

 

Legatus Publius Horatius Cocles

 

dabgaDX.jpg

 

Known as Cocles  or “one eyed” by the rest of the company, Publius gained that moniker through an act of sheer heroism and tenacity.  He and his squad of bladeguard held the Sublicius Bridge against a horde of Tyranid genestealers and their human collaborators, on the planet of Rebos.  A key planet in the system, Publius protected a critical munitions plant from falling into xenos hands.  During the battle, he decapitated the broodlord leading the attack, but not without the loss of his right eye.  Viewing the scar as a badge of honor, Publius has never seen the need to get the wound repaired, and ritualistically marks his helmet on that side with a deep scratch.  With Sicarius gone, Publius was named interim captain. Since their journey to reach Ultramar has taken years longer than expected, as far as the crew of the Aquila Umbra are concerned, he is simply THE captain.

 

 

Publius is a somber, quiet man, who leads with a proficiency born through extensive battle experience.  Never one to shout or lose his temper, Publius only asks his brothers to stand shoulder to shoulder, and fight. While he favors a straight forward confrontation, with the Umbra’s limited resources and manpower, Pulbius has had to, on numerous occasions, showcase just how cunning he can be.

 

Brothers, stand with me! The night is long, but the darkness cannot last forever!

So a word about this guy.  He is actually based on an old Roman person of legend.  As far as we know, he existed, but whether history happened the way the Romans say it did is another matter all together.  Anyway, what do you guys think?

C&C welcome, thanks for stopping by!

Excellent work on Publius. Are those flames, energy discharges, or blood and gore on his sword blade?

I would probably have gone for a white field on the shield, but otherwise I think you've nailed it, especially the glow from the torch.

Much appreciated guys! I'm pretty happy with him!  I've got quite a few projects in the making.  I'm currently working on primaris sized relic terminators, and probably primaris sized attack bikes.  And I just got a unit of aggressors in as well.  I'm doing this all while trying to finish painting up this last squad of dudes.  More to follow on those projects.  In the mean time, here is:

 

Brother Claudius

 

Nd2jiHu.jpg

 

Brother Claudius is the true idealist of Squad Ferox.  A true believer, Brother Claudius seeks to exemplify all that is heroic and good.  He often will go out of his way to help mortal imperial citizens when they are in danger.  Viewing himself as their advocate, he will often respectfully butt heads with Centurion Diocletian, when sacrificing Imperial lives, are necessary for the success of the battle.

 

“They need our help, brother.  We should make that a priority!”
