Ultramarines army showcase

Hi all,

Getting close to the final showcases now. Only Blood Angels and Deathwatch to go. As a brief update I was generously given a job lot of Primaris by a friend from our gaming club - between these and the new tooth and claw set I will be adding a chunk of Primaris marines to my deathwatch army, nearly doubling the boots on the ground. It also allowed me to add some reivers, aggressors, inceptors and a dreadnought to my Sons of Orar so they will be due a showcase update sometime before the nd of the year. Plus one random Gravis Captain who, in a departure from my previous approach, has been added to my Ultramarines. Reasoning being that he was nicely painted as a Smurf and it was either use or lose him. 

Speaking of updates, now seems a good time to recap hobby plans towards the end of the year. Having now acquired a few Space Marines I will aim to get them updated also, but this will push back other projects in turn. Despite taking part in a tale of gamers with the club, I have made precious little progress with anything Chaos and have decided to give up on it until next year - this will officially be the year of Chaos and Sororitas! In the meantime as well as marines I am steadily plodding through my admech which are seeing their tournament debut next week. As well as expanding my Knights to include Dominus patterns by the end of the year I am also looking to assemble some Imperial Guard to represent a Necromundan regiment. A host of smaller projects remain to either complete this year or in between larger projects next.

Anyway, it’s time for the Sons of Guilleman to take centre stage. This army has undergone a fair few evolutions in its time and is now complete save for a handful of Japan exclusive marines I want to get my hands on still to finish the tactical squads, hence why they are unfinished here. The army is formed around a battle demi-company with a variety of HQ units (including Robby G himself). There is first company support in the form of 2 units of vanguard, sternguard and terminators as well as  some scouts. A few unique units have snuck their way in also, namely a deredeo dreadnought and the HQ tanks from Warhammer world. Cheers.

  1. Great stuff, love shots like this. Love the Scout with a pig iron helmet. My Biker Scouts have them.
