WIP: Ultramarines Captain Cato Sicarius #2

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Making some good progress on Sicarius. For now, I’m focussing on completing his body, then I’ll be moving on to the banner. How do you like the model so far? My rendition is a bit different from the ‘Eavy Metal paint job by Joe Tomaszewski…

Showcase: Ultramarines Assault Squad VIII

Another reworked squad is complete. This unit of Assault Marines of the Ultramarines 2nd Company took longer than expected, but then I have a hard find time to find some spare time to paint at the moment. Nevertheless, I grinded on, and here is the res…

Posted on October 6th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Tomorrow marks the release of the new Astra Militarum Codex, including lots of inspiration fur custom regiments. So today we have a look at the brand new Trench Fighter range from Anvil Industry, multi-part resin human infantry models that work very well on their own, or as conversion bits for popular grimdark 28mm tabletop games. We’ll check out some of the possible combinations, and how well they mix with Games Workshop’s Cadian Astra Militarum range.

While I put the final finishing touches to my Assault Squad, I started assembling and basecoating my next project: Captain Cato Sicarius. I bought this model in white metal soon after it was released. Since then he laid dormant, but now his time to shi…

Another update on my Assault Squad. Slowest squad reworking ever. But I hardly find time to paint at the moment. Nevertheless, I’ll grind through, only one more model after this batch. The two models with the flamethrowers are almost complete (apart fr…

Next up is another of my older Ultramarines squads. I’ve reworked a Tactical and a Devastator Squad, which makes an Assault Squad a natural next choice. Above you can see all the changes I made: a new Sergeant made from plastic Vanguard parts, a second flamer, some new arms, heads and torsos here and there, and last but not least 32mm bases. Find out what the squad looked like before after the jump.

Update on Marneus. I painted the base, the banner and worked on the original paint job. I refined the highlights, especially on the blue armour, and repainted a couple of details. For example, his left shoulder guard to be just gold, which looked a bit…
