Thread: Ultramarine Army

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    Ah he's looking awesome so far!!

    Mine arrived on Monday but is a birthday present so I have been strictly informed I am not allowed to have him for another 2 weeks.

    As frustrating as that is it means I can watch you paint yours instead.

    I was worried that I wouldn't be able to build him in sub-sections but it looks as though he is designed with painters in mind which is a relief. Can't wait to get started on him. How are you finding him to paint?

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    Thanks Straightsilver, but I have to be honest. This isn't going well.



    Not sure my heart is really in the project. The blue on his chest is a mess so far, also I just can't get happy with the gold filigree on his armour. I'll keep going and get him done, it could be that I am trying to paint after a days work and I'm tired.

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    So, I slept on this last night. And I realise what it is that's bugging me.



    I should have painted the blue in a way that's consistent with the model and it's scale. I should have done highlights in the same way I did Magnus' muscles. Built them up where the light would hit the top of the pecs and abs. Instead I have (stupidly) tried to edge highlight the blue as I would a normal Ultramarine and it simply doesn't work. The gold I have done looks fine, it's the crappy blue underneath making it look scruffy. Sure it needs to be tidied up in places on the chest where I have been trying to fix the blue, but everywhere else it's okay.

    I can't go back now. The chest is done and I aint stripping him. I am just going to have to hope that when the arms and the rest is on him no one will notice. The best I can do is try to add some definition with some glazes. I cannot believe I have made such a school boy error.

    Well, something that I always forgot, and is that the big models are not painted like the small ones. Anyway, I like how you have painted the face, looks much better than the GW

    He looks excellent man. Don't let it get to you! We're all our own worst critic.

    The face in particular looks great, a huge improvement from GW's own face.

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    This is a wonderful take on Gulliman. You really have done outstanding work on the face. I was 50/50 on whether to purchase before, but your paintjob has tipped me to "buy".

    I've been toying with filling off a lot of the gold filigree to make less ornate. More practical (rather than theoretical ). Do you think it would be tough to do?

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    I have no idea what is happening with the GW model regarding his face. Must be an early sculpt.

    Really glad you both like my effort so far. I think the truth is I should have painted Cypher first. I have been so excited about painting him I have let Guilliman down.

    Ah well.



    Sword arm to do then I will spend some decent time on the firey sword!

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    He's nearly finished.

    Just working on his sword.



    Trying to go for a slightly darker flame to off set the bright white on the shoulder pads on the Ultramarine logo on the other Pauldron.

    Still need to do the final highlights, but waiting to do the other side of the sword before I do.

    Re: Ultramarine Army

    I still need to clean up the sword and that whole arm completely but I am dying a little bit!



    I have moaned a bit about this chap, but considering he's taken me just over two days so far he's turned out okay.

    I need to finish his base and then take a proper picture. Hopefully tomorrow!

    He's looking great - I think you've been overly hard on yourself. Look forwards to seeing him finished

    Only two days, only two days? Jeez that would take me six months to a few years to get to that point.
