Ultra Marines - A beginning!

So everybody loves to hate the boys in blue, or hates to love them. I myself swore once upon a time that I would never do Smurfs and proceeded to build a small Chaos Space Marine contingent.

And yet here I am some time later, admiring pictures of Cato Sicarius, drooling over the artwork I find on the net, Hate me all you like but not only am I doing the Smurfs but im doing the smurfiest chapter of the smurfin lot!

Painting Update

So I got Harley to take a few shots of my models so far -  a few better pictures are always better I say!

We then went out and got stupidly drunk as he is getting married in eleven days ! Also got another model completed so we are near to completion of the 1st squad :)

Storm Talons, Ultra Marines and bears oh my!

So Its been a while and what have I been doing? Study. Long story short is that my current curriculum took some 60 to 70 hours of my time each week if not more, which left me mentally drained for whatever time I had left over. But all that is past me now and to appease my fellow blogger Jon Paul (OMG its a Blog post!) I have decided to share with you all the fruits of my latest project, The ultramarines 2nd company!

Over the course of the next few weeks I will unveil the progress I have made thus far, Take you through each of the tactical squads so far and the vehicles, if which Im going to start with my Storm Talon (or to be precise the base more so)

 So here is the finished piece ready for painting, What is not evident due to the lack of contrast is the individual detailing each and every tile (placed one by one) has received. Needless to say there is a lot!

Wolf Guard Terminator

Small update today- been working on a wolf guard model that will lead the grey hunters- bit more work to go but very happy with the evenings work-  what has dawned on me is that it may be unlikely that i will meet the commitment given how much time im putting into each model- but I happy as i have allot of drive to paint again :)

A thought for the week.

So I saw this article on a Facebook post and think it made a very good point.

The thread is here : Link to Thread 

Here is the article for a read. 

If you're reading this, it's because of one of two reasons. The first is that you saw a thread started by a red name and you're curious to see what I have to say. The other is that you're interested in finding out how to win. I'll do my best to make it worth your while either way.
