UltraMarines - The Sands of Ioto
« on: October 31, 2018, 05:12:36 PM »
My friend’s Marines weren’t quite the bargain he thought – as he was expecting them all to be Deathwatch figures but only two had the shoulder pads.

He’s building an Ultramarine force but wanted these 6 figures done as Deathwatch.

The build quality wasn’t good and too much glue had been used in places. Mould lines I could get to easily were removed, but some remain, and gaps were filled. I managed to remove 2 shoulder pads and cast copies of the Deathwatch ones to replace them but the other 2 weren’t being budged so were botched with purity seals and the like to disguise them. He also decided not to give them the silver left arm.

The photos were taken to show up any painting errors before handing them over.

Space Marine Hero - Brother Vanial
« Reply #5 on: February 04, 2019, 04:30:16 PM »
The local GW store held a painting competition based on the ‘lucky dip’ Hero Space Marines. I offered to paint one to add to my friends Ultras but as the store manager had already got him to enter I somehow ended up buying a figure to do my own entry.

My figure turned out to be Brother Vanial but after I’d taken a knife and saw to the sprue the instruction sheet didn’t quite match the parts I had. With a few extras from the bits box this is the result.

Some more of my friends Ultras. Not quite sure what he wanted and a lot of ideas were discussed - but most importantly he was pleased with the result. A standard was required rather than a banner and with there only being three figures no chance of recreating a raising of the standard diorama – he does intend to game with them as well – so a small scenic base for when they’re not in play.
