Welcome all my fellow brothers and sisters of the Warseer, so to cut it short I've been a long time lurker of this website and a long poster in the B&C but have recently decided to join this place in order to get opinions, ideas and eventual help for the starting Ultrasmurfs project, now without further waiting here is what I have done and what is to be finished on the assembly line!

Tarkus Honorius, Sergeant of Squad Invictus

Nemiel Zarus, Battle Brother of Squad Invictus

Mason "the Silent", Battle Brother of Squad Imvictus

Baradiel, Battle Brother of Squad Invictus

Melkior "the Vengeful", Battle Brother of Squad Invictus

Now if anybody wants close ups on the finished minis I'll post them but otherwise I hope everyone likes them, cheers!

Wow, those are really well poised. great work.

13-03-2013, 04:37
Good work. Look forward to more.

13-03-2013, 17:36
Welcome out of the shadows and into the forum! Promising start indeed. Hope to see more soon.

Thank you everyone for the flattering comments, to my grief I got sick with a really bad cold (damn you Nurgle!) and so I spent all day studying for tests and painting models. The only good thing that came out of it was that another member of Squad Invictus was finished! Melkior also lost the spikes so instead I tried something new and went for it, so cheers for viewing and commenting hope you guys enjoy him!

Wow, these are some pretty sweet PH Ultras. They remind me a lot of the UM from the BL novel covers.

Ok so I've worked a long time today and have to say I've finally been able to get to my model Baradiel "the Avenger of Calth", now fluff and such will be developed after the squad will be complete so cheers for veiwing and commenting mates!


And a group shot of the progress so far (picture is bad but it will be better when the suad is complete):

Great to see you on warseer brother! Fantastic job looking forward to more!

17-03-2013, 20:08
Exellent thread. It's people like you who are making ultramarines actually cool. Particularly love the weathering. Those the new FW cataphracti kits?

@Gearhart Thank you I'm looking forward to the support and ideas I will gain from here, good to see that your on the site too :)

@Idomeneus Yes I believe Ultramarines do deserve more praise then is needed and so I will try to give them their awesomness which in time will also expand to other legions such as the Raven Guard, Salamanders etc. And yes it is the new Cataphractii, cheers!

@The Hairy Painter Thanks mate, I love it too ;)

Ok so I'm putting in my next order form Forge World and it's going to be a squad of Mk II Legion Assault Marines, I have lots of ideas in mind so after making a complete 10 man of these I'm going to get a Sky Hunter Legion Jetbike Squad cheers!

Those are some seriously gritty Ultramarines! Liking a lot.

18-03-2013, 17:30
Any plans for a leader? With the new FW kits and current plastics converting an awesome captain should be relatively easy.

18-03-2013, 21:18
@Idomeneus Yeah I have plans on making one now if he will be Assauly or otherwise oriented I have not decided, but we will see as the project moves along for now I'm just concentrating on making many marines so my company can march for Calth in May.

Thank you Drazhk for your kind reply, I do so love gritty marines if the situation fits it :p. Now back to buisness once again. I've gotten back from school and decided to do some marines after homework and finished the last marine of squad Invictus (who is my favourite btw). Now meet Mason "the Silent", I would like to remind everyone that this is during the Battle of Calth on the surface so the red helmet does not mean sergeant yet, but censure! Any theoreticals as to why he has it? Well anyways I hope you enjoy him! (As a last Note the first image is more brighter then the others because he came out fuzzy and I used some editing to sharpen and make the colours pop out...and don't mind the little spider web looking things on the model, this came from the glue I used for the terrain and is removed now)


Close-up on the model!

Cheers for viewing and commenting!

Given his epithet, is he being censured for repeatedly failing to acknowledge orders and irritating the hell out of his superiors? :p

18-03-2013, 23:03
Hahaha no the reason he has the title "the Silent" is after the censure. The thing is he is an ex librarian and was returned to the 51st company where he continued to serve in the Terminator squadron, after making theoreticals and believing he found practicals on the Warp itself (mainly on the likely hood of daemons and possibly intelligence in the Warp) he was ordered to censure and be judged by the Captain of the 51st, unfortuantly while he was waiting on the chastisement of his captain the first enacted betrayals of Calth started and the captain was slain by the Word Bearers along with most of the 51st (as many companies had suffered). Tarkus Honorius who is sergeant of squad Invictus coordinate the few forces of marines and had them make a tactical withdrawal towards the large Bastion in the Meridius Peninsula (which was one of the first bastions to be erected by the first colonists), here they made their stand with a few other squads that were from different companies all the while Mason stayed silent since he made a vow not to say a single word until judgement was passed on him, he stayed muted all the way until they were retrieved from Calth where he personally was then relieved of censure by Chapter Master Marius Gage

Just a little fluff I was thinking of :P

So a sort of midway point between Aenoid Thiel and Tylos Rubio. I like it. I've always loved the whole secular thing going hideously wrong on them.

Well have been gone for awhile and have had productive activity in starting a new project which is a diorama of a Word Bearer Possessed vs a Blood Angel. So hope everyone likes the WIP diorama, cheers!http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8528/8616056759_280e0fa67e.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8266/8617169314_1732936eaf.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8544/8617174430_3bc7309349.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8538/8617178258_e22a4eca4e.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8538/8617180416_94e862c4c3.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8260/8617182762_d8d87dcceb.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8260/8617185042_c01afc1a1d.jpghttp://farm9.staticflickr.com/8530/8616081179_24a3e70736.jpg

Great diorama! Always wanted to make one my self quite envious! Also warseer was actually the first site I joined haha! Looking forward to more also it's a shame your order is taking so log....hopefully you will get some of it soon I'm actually making a significant order soon as well. seeing as there won't be vehicles I'm guessing it will be sent together but then again it's nothing like your order. Looking forward to your next project btw! ;)
