Work on ultramarine captain
So, I have been busy working away on the fully magnatized captain. The body is about 80%done and 3 of the 10 arms are well under way. The challenge of painting arms separately is becoming apparent. Getting them to dry following a wash is a pain. Any ideas would be appreciated. The storm shield, using scibor bits is finished, the power weapon and the bolt pistol are nearly done and then on to the...
The work continues!
So I have spent another few days on the magnetised ultramarine captain. I have added the storm bolter and a chainsword to the mix now. The options not completed are the 3 combo weapons and the thunder hammer. Not sure about how to do the combi yet but the hammer will be done when I get some terminator parts. I have also sculpted some parts on the model. The loin cloth was tricky (for me any way...
Your flexible freind
So i started well with good intentions yesterday to crack on with the battle company. However when I threw together a list For 1500 Pts of ultramarines, I soon discovered that my current captain left me with out options. I soon started to plan a new captain. I wanted to make some thing that I can change and be flexible. The answer of course is magnets. After the mother of all bits box raids I...
Next-The March towards the Battle Company...
With all the excitement of the Contemptor, It’s going to be hard to re focus on normal Stuff, but to paint up the Battle Company I need to get on with it. Next on the List is the 5th Tactical squad. They are assembled and the first 5 have been started (a few weeks ago) the Sgt, armed with a Power weapon is well on the way as is the Flamer armed Squad man. My plan is to get these 5 done by...
Contemptor progress. Day 9.
Had a great painting session tonight. The first arm is finished and looks good. I just need match up the second arm, which will be hard. The barrels have a used look, which will be difficult to replicate. Should get the finished pics up tomorrow.
tactician-toxic asked: Is the Contemptor hard to put together? Just got two of them and none of them came with instructions. Seems easy enough just wondering if there is any little things I should know.
So I have been working on the contemptor for a week now. It’s look good and I nearly done. Completed list so far- Scenic base, Legs, Body, Head and decals. The 2 arms arms are on the way and I recon that well get him finished tomorrow.
So, I am well in to the Build for the Contemptor and its time to mag the arms up. I am not a big user of magnets and there are loads of blogs about them, so I am not going to go into all the details about this subject, but I would like to talk about where to get magnets and the various things to consider. I used Neodymium or rare earth Magnets. “NEODYMIUM In chemical terms, Neodymium is one of...
I posted earlier that I am working on my Contemptor and I mentioned that I am doing it as a ‘Rifleman’ now for the younger gamer, this reference may float past you. The Rifleman was Battlemech from the game Battletech. It was basically twin armed with linked weapons. Details on the ‘mech can be found here. The current Codex: Space Marines, introduced the concept of adding twin Autocannons on...
In Contemptor of Court.
Ok, so I have had a busy in the hobby for awhile. After a brief flirtation with the Space Wolves I am back on the Ultramarines. I am sure I will get a wolf army at some point, they are great to paint. So I am to back painting blue. I am into Tactical Squad 5, with the Sgt, Special Weapon and 3 Marines well on the way. This squad will be added to theBattlecompany to make up to 75 Marines (and...
