Also nice to see somebody else with a clean style of painting instead of constant weathering. I find the entire weathering issue very tiresome over a force and I love to see nice crisp bold colors as if they have stepped out of WD circa early 90's.

The only comment I will make is the red use of accent on the tabards and so on. Its nice and it fits 3rd company to the letter. However it does look flat... some washing and letting the darker color pool so they are not so flat, may help you out.
Thanks alot I want my marines to look like they just landed and have just disembarked from the thunderhawk. And since they are Ultramarines I want them to follow the Codex almost to the letter. There may be some small diffrences here and there but I try to stick to the codex as much as I can.

I will see what I can do about the red and washing it. I´m currently working on the company champion so he will have to be my test model then.

The main reason I choose the 3:rd company is becouse my main opponent plays nids and 3rd is one of the companys most expirenced in fighting nids

Thanks

The blue is painted in 4 layers. First a layer of Ultramarines blue, then you add in some white and paint on another layer leaving about 2-3 mm of the original colour in the bottom of the armout segment. Then add a little bit more white and do the same again. For the last bit you add quite a lot of white and just highlight the edges of the armour. It takes about 2 hours to make the blue on one marine.

Well, I finally managed to get a recharging thingy for my camera. But I also managed to borrow my father waaaay better camera, not really used to use it though but I´d like to think that the pictures came out better.

Anyway here are the close ups for the tanks that I promised

Predator annihilator. The first of many tanks for this force. I have a few Brass etchings on it to make it look a little special.


Predator Destructor. Dident have any good etchings for this one so it´s just some transfers.


Dreadnought. The plaque was a pain to paint becouse the text is really really small. I did try to make the rext red at first but then it became imbossible to read it so I had to repaint it white. It also had an eagle on to but that one had to go becouse of space issues on the dreadnought.



Razorback. This was the first tank/transport I did for the force, and actually the first vehicle I ever made. It have som FW stuff on it to make it look really Ultramariny.


Rhino. It has been given the FW imperial eagle doors. nothing special other than that.


Rhino. Ultramarine doors from FW. I think these ones came out quite good. Both the arrow on the top hatch on this one and the other are freehand. Doing the only requierd the help of a friend and a bit of paper. After have done the straight line with the help of paper and freind I only hade to tidy it up a bit and fill it in, quite easy.


Same rhino but other side. Here you can se the rear door to. All my transports with FW stuff also have the Rear door addition.


And for a bit of a uppdate here at the end, heres my contribution for the Army paintin challange - January. My command squad. But I really have to get some better light when taking photos of my infantry specialy, they come out way to dark. ANyway. if you would like to se a mini from more angels or anything just drop a line and I will take some new pics

Love the tanks! The FW additions really make them standout. I would like to see some additional pics of the Command Squad banner. It is a bit hard to make out the details due to the lack of light as you pointed out. I also like how you achieved your white. It is very clean and well done.

The new ones is really cool too, but the tanks might look good with a red inner panel.
