Hello. I have been building this army for a couple of months now and thought I'd put
some pics up here. The idea behind this force is to build an Ultramarines force
set in the Horus Heresy. I really love the Greek and Roman style of the Ultramarines.
This is what I'm tying to achieve with this force.
Here's the pics:










Thanks for reading this far:)
I'm going to take the pride of the legion army build.
This basically means you can take veterans and terminators as troops!
The assault squad also (in Horus Heresy) is also a troops choice!

Really like the Ultramarines too. These look great! Cool looking units and I like what you have done with the bases too.

Lovely Ultras - nice effective head swap on Calgar. You've achieved a great deep blue there - I much prefer it to the bright sky blues you often see. Planning on adding any Forgeworld stuff to the mix?

Thanks guys. Really enjoying this project.
To the boatman, yes I will be adding more forgeworld bitz.
I've bought the vanguard veterans(gw) and mk iv assalt marines (fw) set and will mix the parts together.

Looking really good so far, your blue is deep and powerful and your gold is vibrant, keep up the good work!

The Pounder

Thanks for the compliments gents.
I had a chance to paint another assualt marine yesterday.
Here he is:






Just 8 more to go!

04-02-2014, 17:09
Look good so far, but for a true Heresy/Crusade army i would just use armour-parts which where already in use during that time period ;), so mk II, III, IV, praetor, cataphractii, tartarus, indomitus during the outbreak and mk v during the later stages. ultramarines should get mk vi and vii not until the wars after terra^^ so, enough fluff-nerdism^^ keep it up :P

05-02-2014, 07:03
Yeh, yhey look great but what makes them pre heresy? Only head swaps just doesn't work.... I think youre in a need for FW!

The Pounder
05-02-2014, 15:29
Thanks gents. Hadn't given it much thought!
I just armed the models I liked with Heresy weaponry.
The assault marines are a 50/50 mix of Forgeworld Mk IV armour and Gamesworkshop Vanguard Veterans.
Thanks for the responses I think I'll head down the full Forgeworld track now;)

Thanks for the responses I think I'll head down the full Forgeworld track now;)

Thats the way I like to see it, thats the spirit!;)
Just for maybe a bit of inspiritaion, read mark of calth, its a great book with lots of information about the UM!

The Pounder
18-02-2014, 19:54
Thanks for the tip. Read Mark of Calth and now have Unremembered Empire audiobook on
as my painting background noise. So far it's great!
So I've finished my first 5 Ultramarines, quite pleased with them any c&c is welcome.





5 more to go.

18-02-2014, 21:36
They are some beautiful models with a blue I can finally agree on for an ultramarine!

19-02-2014, 09:09
Those are looking great! Can't wait to see more!!!

The Pounder

Sadly I had to flog the previous incarnation of this army due to private stuff
I've had the urge to paint blue once more so thought I'd resurrect this plog.

First up is the tactical squad sergeant.

17-10-2014, 21:43
Fantastic blue.

Could you give me a run down? I'm trying to re build an Ultra marines army, and I love your shade.

The Pounder
18-10-2014, 10:20
Thanks Torch, no trouble. For the blue I use Macragge blue followed by a mix of Alaitoc Blue and Hoeth Blue then add
increasing amounts of Space Wolves grey (don't know the new name.) Hope that helps.
Managed to work on a couple of tactical marines

18-10-2014, 10:23
Cheers dude.

Sweet facial work as well!

Thanks Torch, this is the first project I've done where I painted flesh tones.
Finally managed to grab a little time for painting, so I managed to paint 2
more Ultramarines. Here's the pics

Let me know what you think.

07-11-2014, 10:16
Lovely rich gold, good flesh tones, and to top it off, clever use of the Emperor's Children helmets. Nice! :)
Any chance of a whole army shot so far?

The Pounder
07-11-2014, 11:58
Many thanks Apologist glad you approve, your force is what
inspired me to do mine!
I only have 5 painted models done at the moment, but I'll
post a group pic.
I don't think I'll be adding much to this force this side of
Christmas (I have a wife and 3 small children to buy for!)
I'll do that group shot and see how things go on the new
models front.

The Pounder

Hello again! I've finished another Ultramarine.
This time it's an Assault Squad Sergeant.
As with all my Ultramarines, he's a mix of a load of bitz from various kits.


Thanks for having a look, let me know what you think.

The Pounder
06-02-2015, 08:37
Finally made some progress on the Ultramarines. I've used
bits from the forgeworld MKIV and MKIII armour, these
have been complimented with Sternguard and Ultramaine
pads from GW.

06-02-2015, 11:23
Nice looking smurfs but your massive krieg army is very inspirational :)

The Pounder
06-02-2015, 21:58
Thanks man, glad you liked the Krieg. They're kind of my first love.
They were the first army I started when I got back into 40k.
I'm building the Ultramarines as a HH project.

Red Skullz
06-02-2015, 22:14
I really should get myself a HH army but time. Not enough of it :)

The Pounder
23-02-2015, 08:18
OK here's the latest additions to my Ultramarines, I have kept
to my plan to use the shoulder pads to add a bit of extra
detail. I'm quite happy about the effect that gives.
I have 6 left so I'll update when I get a chance.


The Pounder
13-03-2015, 22:19
Finally finished my first squad of Ultramarines, I'm pleased with how they
turned out. I'm waiting to see if GW will be producing 30k stuff before I add
many more.
All critique is welcome.


The Pounder
20-04-2015, 10:48
After quite a bit of practice, I've found my previous Ultramarines were overdone.
Sometimes less is more.
I dropped 2 layers of highlighting and I'm well chuffed with the results.
Here's my latest addition, at the moment he's a stand in Praetor, he's in charge
because he's my favourite model I've done so far!


The Pounder
08-05-2015, 14:15
Here's the latest models I've done for my Ultramarines.

09-05-2015, 01:35
Very unusual to see Ultramarines done with blue detailing but I must say it looks quite nice. Your shade of gold contrasts with it quite nicely and stops them from looking monotone if you get what I mean. :)

Great work, can't wait to see more!

The Pounder
09-05-2015, 19:15
Thanks MrKeef!
That's exactly what I was trying to achieve.
I'm pleased with the way they're going.
Next up will be 10 assault marines.

The Pounder
22-05-2015, 14:27
Got six assault marines painted, my HH force now stands at about 1k pts!
5 more to go then I'm on to the big man once he's released.

The Pounder
15-07-2015, 20:51
Finally finished my third tactical squad and thought I'd share.
For the most part they are made of the new(ish) Praetorian conversion kit
from Forgeworld.

Next up will be a rhino, followed by Guilliman.

16-07-2015, 18:27
Looking really good + crisp - true sons of Guiilliman

18-07-2015, 14:07
A decidedly pleasing shade of blue, and great detailing with the gold, not overboard like the official models.

The Pounder
19-07-2015, 21:25
Cheers lads, glad you like them.
Next up will either be a couple more tacticals, then it'll be the big man himself!
I finished my first Rhino so thought I'd take a shot of everything I've done to date.

Very crisp all round, the big man is an impressive model, if not exactly my favourite Primarch-sculpt.

Thanks unwanted.
I have 2 more of these Suzerain,
I'm thinking of loading them and Guilliman in a Landraider

I've finally had time to complete the Landraider to transport Guilliman and the Suzerain!
I used a lot of the decals from the Forge World Ultramarines sheet.
These are easy to use and for someone like me that sucks at free hand I highly recommend them.
Here's the pics:

18-11-2015, 17:14
Wow, looking lovely – keep up the great work; this blog is a pleasure to follow.

18-11-2015, 17:43
Very nice :) what did you do to apply the decals please?

The Pounder
19-11-2015, 11:31
Thanks gents glad you liked it.
RTB01, to put the decals on I put a coat of GW 'ard coat to the area I wanted to cover,
after cutting out the decal I chose I put them on a little wet tissue, waited for it to start
sliding off the backing paper I then applied it to the 'ard coated area, I then gave it a
cover of 'ard coat then gave the whole model a quick spray of mat varnish.
That's it!

The Pounder

Thanks the Scimitars are a great kit, I intend on getting 6 in the end!

I found a picture of an Apothecary in Tempest
and really liked the mix of colour, I've adapted it slightly,
though in hindsight he does look a bit like a World Eater!

This will be my last update this side of Christmas.
Made some real progress recently, thanks to all those
who have left replies, it really helps to motivate me.
This is probably my favourite model I've done, except
for Guilliman and probably the Jetbike.
He's the Legion Standard Bearer, he'll be accompanying
Guilliman and the Suzerain.
Here's the pics:

Thanks unwanted!
I'm pretty chuffed with him.
Eventually I want to add another 10 Suzerain.
First though I have the BaC box to entertain myself!

The Pounder
09-01-2016, 18:02
Finally made some progress on the B@C box.
First up is a conversion of a Librarian (what was the Chaplain).

After that I used an Ultramarines upgrade kit to build this sergeant for my fourth tactical squad.

Next up will be 3 Vexilla marines and the last of the tacticals.

09-01-2016, 18:23
Liking the librarian a lot, has a real grim feel about the face. Also think the sergeant is impressive and imposing. Those new 30k figures are a real converters dream, I have a few to do myself. :)

09-01-2016, 19:31
wow, this force looks fantastic

10-01-2016, 11:19
People keep on surprising me with creative uses for the B@C Chaplain, he's certainly filling many different roles out there!

The Pounder
11-01-2016, 13:45
Thanks lads, the kit does really lend itself to conversions.

Finished the vexillas, these will be my last models on the
older bases, in future I'll use the larger bases.
Next up will be my Fulmentarus Terminators.

Thanks MeKeef!
The site went down before I could reply!
I've been busy in the meantime, a unit of Fulmentarus

Thanks for getting through the wall of pics!
Glad Warseer is back!
Next up 10 more Veterans.

20-02-2016, 19:22
Veterans look sweet, liking the fact they all have helmet plumes. Very nice finish.

The Pounder
22-02-2016, 16:25
Thanks Mrnon, I'm pretty chuffed with how they turned out.
I'm working on another 10, I'll post some pics when I've done
a couple.

22-02-2016, 16:53
Yeah those Veterans are looking really nice.

The Pounder
24-02-2016, 09:46
Thanks StraightSilver!
For my second Veteran squad I've gone for meltaguns and 2 power weapons.
I know it's probably not the most competitive build but I think it looks cool!
Here's the serg and a squady:

Next up will be a power sword vet and another rank and file marine

24-02-2016, 12:37
Very pretty, a little too blinged out and lightly coloured for my personal Ultra-preference, but well-painted to boot!

Veterans look the part, big time.

The Pounder
19-03-2016, 22:57
Thanks unwanted! Glad you approve.
Finally finished my second unit of Veterans.
I'm pleased with how they turned out.
Probably not the most competitive build but I liked the look of them!
Not sure what's next I have 3 Rhinos and a Sicaran to work on.
Here's how they turned out:

I finished my second Sicaran today. I changed which
panels the light blue was on.
I thought I'd mix it up a bit, I try to make my infantry
look as individual as possible so why not the tanks!
I have to say I'm loving the Forgeworld decals!
Anyway here's the pics:

Great work, Pounder :) Like the look of the sicaran. Its such a cool model.

The Pounder
18-04-2016, 15:46
Thanks SDKZ! It's a great tank (I have 2!)
They're fast so could keep up with your Raven Guard!

18-04-2016, 16:10
nice, love watching this collection grow

The Pounder
21-04-2016, 16:26
Thanks Beppo1234! I enjoy adding to it (when I can).
Well I've spent the week painting a new ride for
I've used the Landraider from the Warhammer World
exclusive Command Tanks set. It's a really satisfying
kit, though if your thinking of getting one don't glue
it together completely (that's the mistake I made, which
makes it awkward to get at some of the details!)
Thanks for the replies people, really helps to motivate!

That is looking awesome, you've really got a nice finish on that raider. :)

Tybalt Andrus
23-04-2016, 08:47
Pounder, you're doing a great job on these Ultramarines. The last two tanks are very nice - you've got a really effective placement of your blue and white elements. It's also nice to see some of the pieces from the Command Land Raider, as it's not a kit you see very often.

Keep up the great work. What's coming next?

23-04-2016, 15:12
"Regal" and "tanks" are maybe not the two most obviously compatible words, but they certainly fit here. And I agree with Tybalt, the bits from the Command Land Raider suits your style very well. Also, always love Sicarans, and yours is very pretty!

Thanks very much! It's a fantastic kit to work with.
Next up is the Rhino command vehicle (I'll be using it as a Damocles)

Thanks unwanted, I'm really trying to make my Ultramarines look
clean and shiny (just how I imagine them).

Next for the Ultramarines will be my recently acquired Fellblade!

10-05-2016, 00:21
Really inspiring stuff! I think you've really captured that noble/glorious image of the Ultras, especially with the crazy amount of bling (in a good way!). Looking forward to seeing your fell blade.

The Pounder
10-05-2016, 16:01
Thanks ewar!
That's exactly what I was aiming for!
If I had my time again I would probably do
some weathering but that's what my Death

Managed to find a little time for some hobby.
I've finished my Fellblade!
I bought it off a friend for 50!!!
It came fully assembled all I had to do was
prime and paint it!
I will say the Forgeworld decals are brilliant.
Here's the pics:

It's been a while, this force has evolved into a "Forces of Ultramar" collection.
The idea is to create not only Astartes but all the various arms of the Ultramar Military!
With that in mind (and not strictly from Ultramar but they're too cool!)
I've finished my first Custodes!

I was a bit out of my comfort zone as I'm not that confident

at doing metallics.

The sculpts are amazing, the level of detail is superb!

Here's my first attempt:
