Default Ultramarines 2nd Company ever growing army

Hi!
I'm building an Ultramarines army, starting from 500pts, then 1000pts, 1500pts and finally 2000pts. I'm not in a hurry to achieve the top points, cause I like to take my time on painting, and I have many side projects ongoing.
I'll show each unit one by one on each post, with an explanation of the painting process and markings.
I hope you like them!! Any advices for improving will be welcome ^^

First unit, HQ, Chief Librarian Varro Tigurius. Not really the first miniature I painted for the army, but first character I paint since a long time. Not very proud of the cloth ,still not used to paint it. Also, first freehand of my life :D
Maybe I'll repaint it or buy another one and try a different technique on the armor and cloth.











You can find this and other miniatures in my Tumblr page, http://leonhart040.tumblr.com/

So crisp! Gorgeous highlighting on the model.

The shading is a bit stark side on the robes though. I find it helps to water down the shades quite a bit for bonewhite robes.

I had an AMAZING time at fightclub.

I arrived a bit late, so I missed the introductions, but man... I had an awesome time at fightclub! 10/10 I would recommend fight club to anybody!

Time for some troops. This is the first new kit of tactical space marines I paint since a long time. I was done in a quick way, only to play. Basically it's drybrush+drybrush+glaze, not a great paintjob I fear I'll fix them later maybe.
Also it is the first squad where I use numbers and icons of squad and company. After reading the old Insignium Astartes and comparing it to the infromation in the new codex, I thought I could work a bit more on them and show some markings.
I also applyed this to an old rhino, and put some LED in it. I'll explain it in another publication.

style on the marines works well in comparison to the Sgt. Ive seen some fast painting jobs look a hell of a lot worse so a big for the attention to detail so far.

Nice terrain detail too. Did you 'ardcoat the squad designators onto the shoulder pads or freehand?

Overall keep it up

@friar76 All symbols are freehad, except the Ultramarines symbol (except the on on the banner). I'm trying to paint all the symbols from now on, decals are great, but freehand gives some personality to a miniature.
Thanks for the :D

As much as I dislike the smurfs, those are some damn fine looking marines. Nice job on the LEDs as well. Well done. I can't believe I'm the first to rep you for them.

Good idea, especially if you can show how you wired up the LEDs.
