I'm taking on the quest to redo my ultramarines army ( The old one is only on 1000 points and crappy painted). I'm starting fresh now and I have no intentions to stoop until I have the whole third company.:)

So far I only have 2 tactical squad, 1 devastator and assault squad, 5 terminators and a librarian and chaplain.

Here are some pictures:http://photobucket.com/albums/f119/ld6988/?sc=1
And more will follow.

I am looking forward to seeing your army growing. Those pics are just too huge, over one MB per picture. You should crop them with some program (maybe even paint can do this) and resize them for easier fit. It makes watching them easier, keeps away the dejavu's from the dial-up times and also helps to keep warseer's bandwith not so stressed.

And the terminators look really nice! :cool:

Yeah, I'm on it, I will process them.

I have been a bit slack on painting the last week, but I think I will have the termies done by monday.

Is it possible to move this tread to project logs?:confused:

23-01-2006, 11:49
PM a mod and they should be able to do it for you.

Nice I always loved the 3rd company after i played firewarrior. Good luck and i might do the same thing too.

23-01-2006, 21:59
one problem i have is that, the 3rd company does not use terminators. they're first company suits, although a captain might have a suit.. i don't think alll companies would have access to their own

though, good luck with your project!

Thanks everybody:) , and I just for the record the terminators are a detachment from the first company, same goes for the librarian which is a detachment from the chapter HQ.

lol, this takes me back. my 3rd ever space marine army about 5 years ago was the ultramrines 3rd company. i even converted captain ardias and entered it into gd in 2001. (link in the sig if your interested mr ardias :D)

those are looking prety nice my man. and i cant wait to see your interpretation of the Captain himself.

Captain Ardias
24-01-2006, 10:08
Well my interpretation of captain Ardias will have a power sword and a power fist (the combination where inspired by the emperor) and be based on a honour guard model for extra ultramarineyness.

And I'm Thinking of replace the helmet with a MK 4 maximus helmet with a roman hair crest ( cant remember the word but its the thingy the roman officers and greek hoplites had on their helmets).

And as a extra detail I will include a bonding knife (which he got or took from Kais).

Looks really good, I especially enjoy the terminators: looking ancient, dynamic, heroic and dead-hard. Kudos for that, I like them a lot. Although some parts could be cleaned with some paint, it isnt really needed as the style of this work is really nice.

09-02-2006, 10:38
quite nice.. i like it although the paints look kinda thick...

I've been very lazy when it comes to painting the this month, but finally I've got my ass moving so without any further delay Here's Severus Ironclaw:

Edit: Just for the record this is WIP.

26-03-2006, 16:12
lookin good.


26-03-2006, 18:51
He's got blue on his base.

Also, a little highlighting of the blue goes a long way. Otherwise, shiny.

Your painting is looking nice... but uh.. I think you need to remake the cloak on your commander model (the guy with the thunderhammer). It doesn't really look too good :(

Other than that, you're doing a pretty good job.

Captain Ardias
26-03-2006, 20:02
Yeah I known the cloak looks bad (he's a librarian thoug), it was the first time I have tried to sculpt a cloak, so I have to try to remake it.

I also have a tactical squad and a assault squad I'm painting, and hopefully I will have them done by next weekend.

Haha.. yea... I remember the first couple of time I tried to sculpt cloaks/robes :p

Looking forward to seeing some of your updates :)

Well it been a while now, I have been to preoccupied with school and trying to get a apprenticeship(but sadly I haven't got one). But I'm back and have done some work. I've also bought myself Mr Calgar and the honour guard, but unfortunately one has to sacifice his head and axe, so that I can make The Captain Himself. So here we go, Oh.. and they are all Wip:

Venerable Battle-brother Severus Ironclaw:

The dread looks nice, but unfortunately you've left the flak on the purity seals. The Carnifex head looks nice too.

Thats how the model comes ;)

Nicely done, but i'd give Cassius' face a Watered down Bestial Brown wash to bring out the detail.

how did you paint the blue on the dreadnought

Captain Ardias
14-08-2006, 12:36
I used a mix of 50/50 regal blue/Ultramarines blue.
