Showcase: Ultramarines Stormtalon Conversion

Posted on May 16th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

This Stormtalon was originally painted in 2014, before the Stormhawk Interceptor was released. I wasn’t happy with the front-heavy design, so I streamlined its Silhouette a little bit. Nowadays I probably would have just bought a Stormhawk. Despite its rather recent paint job, I still changed a few things like replacing the hand-painted weathering with more refined sponge weathering and upgrading the rather boring original base. Check out all the pictures after the jump.

Showcase: Ultramarines Drop Pod

Posted on May 14th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I haven’t posted in a while but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t busy working on my remaining older Ultramarines paint jobs. Here we have a Drop Pod for my recently reworked Sternguard Veterans. Apart from some sponge weathering, I also added scorch marks and burn damage that would occur while entering the atmosphere.

Update on my reworked Tactical Squad. The first five models are complete. The most left and right models are repaints, while the other three models are new additions. I really didn’t enjoy assembling and painting the model in MkV “Heresy” armour. The F…

Review: Citadel Munitorum Varnish

Posted on February 18th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

Protecting your precious paint jobs is important. Even with just a moderate amount of handling, paint rubs off the edges easily. Thus, varnishing is essential. It’s surprising that it took Games Workshop so long to come up with a successor for their Purity Seal spray varnish.  Munitorum Varnish is supposed to have “a semi-matt or satin finish that is very much like the natural sheen of the paint itself” – let’s see whether it lives up to its promise.

I’m currently reworking a Vindicator, but inbetween I’m preparing my next Tactical Squad. Like my other Ultramarines projects, there’ll be a mix of old and new models. The old models, painted about six or seven years ago, will be retouched to match the…

Showcase: Ultramarines Apothecary

Posted on February 4th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Another older model of mine I upgraded to a 32mm base. Otherwise, I didn’t change much, and while the paint job doesn’t reflect my current skills, I guess it’s still fine. I like the head with the half mask, it somehow reminds me of a chirurgeon wearing mouth protection. Check out another shot after the jump.

Showcase: Ultramarines Company Champion

Posted on January 24th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Hey there, just a quick update of an older model of mine while I’m working on the Rhino. Originally, the model was armed with a power axe because I thought it was cool and something you don’t see often on a Company Champion. But in 8th Edition, this combination is no longer legal, so I swapped the axe for a sword. Check out another picture after the jump.

The good old Rhino. Who hasn’t painted one or two (or a dozen) of this model. The kit has a lot of visible joints that the designers would hide more cleverly nowadays, but together with the Land Raider, it’s still my favourite Space Marine vehicle desi…
