Having taken a break from my Sawtooths project I've been re-living my youth and reinventing my first ever army... Ultramarines. Now, now, hold on. I hear you groan at the Astartes poster boys but for me this is a trip down memory lane taking me back over 10 years...
So the aim of this project is to reimagine the Ultramarines army I made all those years ago. While none of the old army survives to date, I am going from memory in building this force. I want it to be as close to the original as possible and will be based around a core of a Captain and his Command squad, 2 Tactical squads and an Assault squad. Eventually I will include a Terminator squad, a Dreadnaught, Devastator squad and a Predator tank.
I like to theme my armies within a setting, this will give me a look that I'm going for when modelling and painting. The setting for this army will be in the heart of a battle on a fortress world overrun with Orks; the Battle of Icarus Plateau. This will also be represented in some fluff I have written to accompany the log to flesh out the army and its characters. More on this later...
So to start with here is the Captain and his Command Squad
Captain Titus Agrippa
I'll be posting close ups of the rest of the squad later for those interested. But for now, thank you for your time, c&c most welcome
