Having been barely keeping up with the hobby for several years, Indomitus reignited my passion for 40k last year, so I decided to try to actually build a force. This time it will be Primaris space marines, but still my beloved 3rd Company of the Ultramarines.
The plan is to build the complete company, including officers and attached specialists and a dreadnought, plus a ten-man Deathwatch kill team, and such a project needs a fresh thread, so here I am.

In terms of bulding the company, I will be dividing it into combat squads, to avoid becoming overwhelmed or bored, and alternate those with Deathwatchers and officers, so that it will go Combat Squad > Deathwatch > Combat Squad > Officer > Combat Squad > Deathwatch... and so on. This should offer a decent balance between progress and sameness of models.
I started an Intercessor veteran sergeant (the 30th anniversary model) as a one-off before I decided to make a full army, so I decided to finish him before doing the rest of the combat squad. If you visit the Ultramarines subforum, you may have seen him, but here he is again with one of the Necrons the 3rd is fighting:
The Necron is really just a color scheme test model, not the start of an army, any time soon at least.

The rest of Combat Squad Ardias is in progress, with their bodies only needing cleanup:
The bolt rifle arms are coming along too, I just need to highlight the black and tidy up everything before gluing them on. Then it's just the other arms, backpacks and heads and then finishing touches.

Of course, an Intercessor squad isn't the end of it. I have plenty of plans for all the squads and in particular the command cadre.

I don't feel like typing out all the minute details of my plan that I've spent the last nine months overthinking, so for now I will just finish off with something black for now:

That's some great weathering!

I vow to complete 1,000 points of Black Templars if GW releases a Primaris Emperor's Champion - 7/10/2021

Some lovely looking models there.

I really like the basing.



So yeah, long story short.

Lovely painting. I especially enjoy that you picked the 3rd company. Not something you see everyday.
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.

That is the best Ultramarine I have seen in ages! Plus 3rd company just looks glorious! I can’t wait to see more!

Many thanks for the responses and likes.

I got a little carried away with the Iron Hand instead of painting Ultramarines.
I just need to highlight the black and the leather on the body assembly and then tidy everything up.

The head is just a quick color test for some of the new (to me) GW skin paints that I got in last week, though I'm using the same head for him (but painted properly), so it shows what I'm going for with this model.
These specific paints here, Ionrach Skin and Deepkin Flesh, give a good pallid color that I think suits a heavily bionicized face.
