Default Ultramarines Blog

When i started 40k many years ago; i was a proper newbie - i chose to paint and collect Ultramarines ^_^. Of course, they were painted awfully (and many times), glued together and converted in a .. less than fluffy way (skeleton warrior sheilds and swords on the veterans?). And overall, were not that impressive.
But despite all this, I still have a soft spot for the UMs. So here i am revisiting them and painting some good old fashioned Ums Blue power armour.

Here is a fella i did a while ago.

And the latest jetbike. :D Still needs a little work tiding up and freehand and stuff.

Welcome to Heresy Online Eddie, hope you find the place to your liking.

Fantastic work on the marine, loving the OSL as well as the ultra clean look. Nothing impresses me more than a cleanly painted model. Have some rep for the whole package.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Sexy Smurf there!

How did you do the OSL? I've seen a few different ways, but wondering how you do it? :D

Thanks for the warm reception guys :D neat system of Rep that we have here.

Marneus: Many folks do the glow with drybrushing, but i think this gives a powdery appearance, real light tints the surfaces a certain colour rather than just effecting the raised areas. I just used a method of applying a "filter" which is a very thin layer of paint with alot of water and some acrylic medium to thin the pigment, then build this up over the surfaces touched by the light :D

Here's a WIP Got the base colours down - and that II needs tidying i know.
Ultramarines jetbike ^_^ Even though im not doing a strict PH army, it was a cool model

I like the crispness of your models. All the blue and white looks really good!

The only bad thing I would have to say about the model above is that the bolters look a bit thin. Maybe you bulk them out someway? Otherwise I love your work
