My other ultra's project log has descended into mere anarchy and got about as off topic as it could get with pictures of half finished models from an assortment of projects. I have therefore decided to kill it off and start afresh.
I have recently decided to go codex with my ultra's after a year or so of 2nd company and black shoulder-padded heresy. In the process I intend to finish everything in the army to the same standard, and to raise my game a little painting-wise, adding in the little touches I couldn't initially be arsed with. To that end, this project log will feature ultra's and only ultra's, and furthermore, it is going to be *finished models only*. Hopefully I should end up with a project log that is far better to browse through than the mess I leave behind.
So to start, I present you with tactical squad 'martis' and rhino. Facelifted from my first AOBR marines.
The initial line highlights on these are too wide, but after the addittion of a grey highlight, it blends better. Its not as noticeable to the naked eye as it is in the pictures as I'm using some pretty harsh lights. The main changes to these guys were the additional highlight, the shoulderpad change, various freehand markings, and the weapon casings.
Not much done to the rhino, mainly the addition of transfers, and some blending on the hatch veiwports.
Hope you all like them, and I'll be back soon with more updates.
