Default Ultramarines

I started a project back a while ago, before all the system errors happened and it was lost, but I thought now I would start it again.

This is a project showing my version of an Ultramarine Color scheme. The thought behind it is the Marines start off primarily Blue and Silver and as they go up in rank ( Sergeant, Veteran, Captain, etc) more gold is added to there colors. I'm hoping this will make the higher ranking models stand out more. I don't have any fluff to back this Chapter as I am not a very creative writer.

Please feel free to leave any comments, critics, or suggestions as this is my first army and I have not been painting for that long so I am always looking for new ideas and/or skills.

Default Ultramarine Terminators

These are my first attempt at Terminators as well as one of my first attempts at doing a Power Sword. These models are of course from the Assault on Black Reach set. I hand painted everything including all the symbols on the armor.

They look pretty good from what I can make out, the pictures are quite blurry.

Check you're using the macro setting on your camera (the little flower symbol) and try and get a small tripod for it if you can, it will make taking pictures a lot easier.

Default Assault Marines

Please excuse the photo quality, I am still trying to learn how to take good quality photos of miniatures, as I get better I will replace older photos.

Here are my first Assault Marines. I again did all the painting by hand including the symbols and was trying for a bit more realism by adding the scorch marks to the jump packs. I also am trying to bring my army together by making things such as the Power Fist and Power Weapons all following the same color scheme, in the case of the Power Fist Silver hand with gold fingers and Power Weapons will be Red with white lightning.

Thanks for the suggestion on the photos, another of my issues is trying to get the right amount of lighting in my dark house as well as figuring the right distance from the camera I really just wanted to get some photos up and this project started. I'll go back and try to fix the pictures whenI have a bit more time to work on them.

Looking good so far. As for the lighting, grab yourself a cheap desk lamp and some daylight bulbs, position the lamp behind and slightly above where you set your camera up with a white/ light blue background and you should find a vast improvement.

Default HQ Chaplain

This was the first HQ I ever painted. I tried to keep with the Chaplains wearing black armor but still adding a bit more blue than usual to tie him into the rest of the army. I also liked the idea of making the parchment at his waist blue instead of the usual color.

Default Tactical Squad 1

This was my first painted Tactical Squad. I actually made this squad from a bunch of bits my friend gave me when I first started putting my army together. Hence why some don't have power packs and the Sergeant has a Dark Angels power pack. This was also before I got better at dry brushing the flesh of the marines. I have another Sergeant that I need to finish the highlights on but hopefully I will be able to get him up tonight.

Default Rhino

Now what Tactical Squad would be complete without its transport. This was my first vehicle that I ever painted. I was happy with most of it except I went a little over zealous with the weathering effects. I have since learned and hopefully my next one will be better.
I also found I don't really like painting vehicles (especially since I do it all by hand). There is to much flat empty space and I get bored.
