The Distracted Wargamer (again)
I’d love to say I have been on topic for clearing my Painting stack, but sadly I have been distracted. I bought some Sisters of Battle Repentia to sell on Ebay form a twitter follower, Wouter Lute. He said he’d throw in some marines he had ‘knocking around’ while I still haven’t listed the Sisters, I have the marines. Rather than just some marine, they are a pack of Mk 1 Veteran Marines, now known...
troop based ultramarines (1000pts)
This is my 1000pt Space Marines 5th Ed (2008) Roster (Standard) that only uses foot troop. It’s a novel idea, like the older style lists. I’ll have to give it ago next time I am at club. With a mix of combat and heavy weapons I should be able to take down most opponents, but with 41 space marines in a 1000 pt force, it will be reasonably tough. Selections: HQ (160pts) ...
Clearing the Decks Up date Pt1
See, I can regularly update a blog! I have tried to stay on task of clearing my stacked up painting and so far, I have done OK. I have decided to paint the last of the Ultramarines troops (2 tactical, Vanguard with Jump). This will leave me 5 Honour guard and 5 Vanguard on foot.

Ultramarine Captain-Raising my standards

To tie in to the classical nature of the piece, I have gone for a traditional Back banner. Taken from the Commander kit this is a sculpted plastic banner. The circle/laurel pattern is simplistic and was an early attempt by GW on a Sculpted plastic banner (relatively speaking). I feel they...
Ultramarine Captain-Braiding for Dummies
A few days ago started on my Ultramarine Captain. Clad in terminator armour, he will be based on Spartan hoplite Warriors. For his chest I want to use the chest plate from the Space marine commander kit. I soon found out that the 2 kits, power armour and Terminator, don’t mix to well. As I wanted the braiding the only alternative was that I needed to learn to sculpt the roping. This turns out to...
Ultramarine Captain-the Spartan Plan
I have decided to convent up a Space marine captain. Looking at the web, I have seen loads of great conversions, but the Scibor range was mentioned loads. Looking through the range I just love the Spartan but I wanted my captain to be in Terminator armour. I have hatched a plot and I have ordered loads of bits for Scibor and Model bits He will be armed with a ‘dory’ spear. I will count it as...
