Default The All-father's ULTRA cool, ULTRA flashy... ULTRA pic heavy...

ULTRAmarines thread! (and a couple assassins).

I'll start off with the heavy-weights, termies and my HQ-type models and such. Before you rip these apart, I'd like to mention that my friend painted these... not me. I did the details, such as the rivets and skulls and all that.

First off, the termies.
Group shot...


Termie Sergeant


Heavy Flamer!


A close-up of my lovely detail work...

Next up, Ol' Marny!


More of my detail work


And a side shot


Here's Tigurius...




And a Librarian... painted in the wrong colours. I'm thinking of stripping him and repainting him for my Einherjar Chapter.


I especially like the axe

[hr]
Techmarine...








And Force Commander/Leader/Captain




Finally, Culexis and Vindicare assassins.




Well? How do they look?

I like how deep the main colors on the models look, and they are all pretty good (accept the "librarian"). However, they are Ultramarines and must be destroyed, or at least stripped and painted differently (which I know you are doing)...

Not bad.... the libby looks more like a beserk apocathery.

Definently table top worthy, just nice and simple.

As I said, my friend painted them. Thanks for the comments, and I know they're definitely tabletop quality. I think my friend was just lazy, since he didn't paint the eyes, or any of the small details and then switched to an even easier army to paint: Necrons.

And Lonely, I'm only going to be stripping the troops and that Librarian (cause I love that axe). I'll probably be getting a new Force Commander to convert since I don't feel like stripping and then ripping him apart to convert him. I don't need to muck about with any of the Characters.

And sorry for the quality of the pics, my table lamp sucks. Its too yellow.

Not bad, they are easily table top quality. I like the chain on the Vindicare Assassin!

Where is the paint thick? Cause I really don't like people coming in and saying "The paint is thick" just for the sake of saying it. Anyway, you won't be seeing most of these models again, since the Ultramarines are going bye-bye, as Lonely has already said. I doubt I'll be doing anything else with these character models.

one thing i love about this forum is that you guys are always supporting and encouraging other people with their painting you guys don't just go well that sucks
you always try to tell the person what they have done good and what they can do to improve on.

btw nice minis
