    Ultramarines 8th Company Captain

    I managed to track down one of my al time favourite miniatures on ebay the other day. So much so, that I dropped everything else on my painting list to focus on stripping and repainting this model. This model goes right back to when I first started out in the hobby and featured in the first White Dwarf I ever bought (Issue 175). I dug out the issue and there, just as I remembered it was a picture of this model standing in a stream battling an Ork Dreadnought.

    The model I talk of is the 1990 Ultramarines Captain.

    In that issue he is called Ultramarines Commander and has white trim on his shoulder pads. So that would make him Captain of the 1st Company. His imagery however looks like like the New Sicarius sculpt. He has the same kind of helm and weaponry. Suffice to say, my 1st company will be led by a captain in terminator armour, and I have a 2nd company commander from the Masters of the Chapter formation, so I decided to give my classic Captain grey trim and make him Captain of the 8th Company. A reserve company that is made up from bikers, assault marines and landspeeders. I have a couple of landspeeders that are from the 8th company, so know they have a Captain.

    Ooooh, very nice, and a classic miniature too. You've done a great job with these guys. I especially love your ultramarines blue. Just how I imagine it.

    Great stuff as always Gareth. Nice crisp looking blue. I painted this guy a short while ago, he is a nice mini. You have done an old mini justice. Kudos.

    I love this model, it was the second piece I bought, I had the old imperial space marines 5 man combat squad first, then I saved up a few weeks and got this model.

    I painted the sword bright orange!

    Really nice.
