I think if you shaved down the necks they'd look a lot better.

 

Roman Cavalry used face plates that looked like this- maybe storm cast heads could work for bikers

Pearson: thank you, it's always encouraging to know you like them!

Grail: Mmmmmm, that's a good idea! Thank you! When I get some outriders I may just do that! I know when I get a dread, I'm going to model the front like a marble freeze or maybe a triumphal arch. I'd like to work in death masks somehow.

A triumphal arch Dread is a brilliant idea. So good I'm surprised no one has done it before.

Grail: Thanks! We shall see if my execution does the idea justice.  Upon further look, I agree with you, that his neck is a bit too long.  I did that so that he would be looking at a higher angle...but now that you've pointed it out I can't "unsee" it! msn-wink.gif  However, at this point, I don't want to do the work to change it, so I guess I'll have to accept it.

 

Brother Mercurian

Recently reassigned from Infiltrator Squad Umbra,  Mercurian adds his experience and expertise in asymmetrical warfare to Squad Mollitia. As second in command, Mercurian handles the day to day issues that may occur within the squad, as well as leads the second element when the squad has to split.

Thank you! I'll have the last one done shortly. Then I'll take a group shot. Irs been a lot of work for these 5 models. It kinda feels like a big accomplishment being able to have a complete unit...even if it is a min size

Brother Lucius

The youngest and newest member of Squad Mollitia, Lucius is almost as outgoing as Centurion Marius.  Easy going and friendly to both his fellow brothers and imperial mortals, Lucius takes the friendly ribbing of his battle brothers with a good sense of humor.

 

“Is the new guy going to have to show you, how its done!?”

Intercessor Squad Mollitia

High Gothic for resilience, Mollitia has proven time and again they can overcome extremely dangerous objectives.  Through the long arduous journey back to Ultramar, Squad Mollitia has conquered numerous threats.  Most notable are a renegade Knight Titan on the demon world of Ch’tobos, and a C’Tan shard on an unknown tomb world in the galaxy center.  Through faith, brotherhood, and optimistic ingenuity, Squad Mollitia, has proven themselves to be invaluable members of Battle Cruiser Aquilla Umbra’s crew.

Thanks bjorn! On to the next combat squad. I ordered a recruit edition starter so I'll have assault intercessors soon.

So here is the latest WIP.  I got a really good deal for some intercessors and Death Watch models on ebay.  Unfortunately they were constructed with plastic glue, which will make converting more challenging....BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE! So I'm gunna do my best with these guys.  anyway, here is the next Centurion (Sergeant). Any comments or suggestions welcome.

That Centurion is textbook "rule of cool". Love it


Come watch me paint a bunch of stuff, including obscure space marine chapters and some random Xenos.

A roman sergeant was called an optio, but the romans didn't have power armour so call yours whatever you want.

 

Isn't there a Space Wolf character on a chariot? Do you think you could do a Roman/Ultramarine version?

I call mine Decanus because the typical "full" Space Marine squad is closest to a contubernium, consisting of ten men under what we would call a NCO. But again, it's your choice.

Logan Grimnar, yes.

I thought chariots (at least, their usage in warfare) weren't so much a legion thing as they were weapons of Rome's enemies, though? That might be Total War history talking, though.

Thanks for the comments guys! This guy has so far been my favorite. But I'm working on a lieutenant now, so we shall see. (It's the one from indomitus...gotta figure out a way to convert a proper scutum)

As far as I knew, and I could be wrong, an optio was more of an "executive officer" to the centurions "commander". (To use modern military speak) The marine legions aren't organized in cohorts so, since historical accuracy is loose-ish anyway, I figured I'd pick the more recognized of the titles.

the romans didn't typically use chaoriots, but it's an intriguing idea...I'd have to figure a method to make a consistent looking spatha, but I needed to do that anyway for my outriders.

Maybe it might work for Gulliman on a triumphal procession.

The new space marine field gun thing (cant remember the name) might work as a the basis for a ballista.

The Romans- and Medieval Europeans after them- were able to breed horses large and strong enough to bear an armored knight's weight, rendering chariots "dead weight" for their armies. If a nation doesn't have horse breeds of sufficient size and strength, then its armies must use chariots to fill the Fast Attack slot knights usually had in an army.

I think you might be on to something...I can't remember the latin name for it, but it was called the "scorpion"

It's true, horse size definently affected force organization chart choices of antiquity. :P

I like the leg armour plates on the one in the middle. It looks cleaner than the green stuff lines on the guy on the right.

Brother Centurion Sulla

 

uacm59t.jpg

 

Disciplined and terse, Centurion Sulla leads Intercessor Squad Immitis with textbook precision. Introverted and possessing of a sardonic sense of humor, Sulla can be seen in his off time, training and polishing his warplate.  While not known for his charisma, Sulla has earned his squad’s utmost respect, through unrelenting bravery, and silent stoicism.

 

“Attack plan Sigma, by the numbers!”
