In case you're wondering, say the title to the tune of "Row, row, row your boat" and it makes more sense. :wink:

So, another release of something we saw from the Warhammer World re-opening. This time it's the Primarch of the Ultramarines.







Guilliman seems to be another victim of the scourge of the grumpy face, where Forge World models are either screaming or frowning. It's almost as if no one is having a good time in this civil war! The scenic base (I think) looks like he's standing at an cross-road rather than in any kind of battle-field and his playing base, well, you tell me. It looks like he's standing on a flying kitchen counter top.

Meanwhile, if you listen very carefully you can hear those who play legions from the first 3 books with units/special character/primarchs yet to be released shaking their fists in rage and crying quietly to themselves because they've not seen even a hint of Forge World working on anything that isn't in Book V, save Sigismund.

While I would rather see a Primarch who has already been released for a while, I do like this model quite a bit. The details are incredible, the base fits him more as a character and less of a wargame-mini, but still looks awesome.

Yeah, that is probably the most anticipated and yet most disappointing Primarch I have seen to date. My god, just look at it - He looks like his torso and feet is made of Lego.

I agree about the face, but I think it's mostly the paintjob. He's been painted to look like one who hasn't slept for a week.

I don't know - I guess I just expected more *POW* for one of the most anticipated Primarchs in the collection. He's just boring.

I am really not a fan of pointed swords. You don't get a good feel for the shape and build of the model when the arm is stuck up in the air.

The ideal "regal space marine" look that I like is the power sword captain for the new sternguard box. He has a ship captain pose, with his left arm resting on the hilt of his sheathed sword.

I'm underimpressed. He looks very static and somewhat disjointed. The marble is also painted in such a way that it makes the already ornate mini look even more busy and hectic, but that's a painting thing.

Actually I like him, seems cool enough, just one complaint not enough rocks as previously mentioned.

He looks like a polished turd, exactly how he should look, this guy is my least favorite primarch. I even like Fulgrim more than this guy. They captured the essence of Guillimane perfectly here in all his splendor, the puts he is. Calth be damned, Terra was under siege, you don't stay and fight the Word Bearers, you disengage and take whatever you can and make for Terra, with the traitors in pursuit if need be, but he cared more about his own little empire than the imperium as a whole.
