as a relative newbie to 40k (played a little in the late 90's, but was mostly collecting; picked it up again quite recently), I thought I would start out with what I was most familiar with: Space Marines!! To make it easy i've gone with vanilla / ultramarines.
I've got some of my...

rather than post seperate threads for every bit of fluff for my character, I'm going to try to keep it all in one thread. I'd already posted his "intro", and I'm going to re-post that here first so that it's all here in one place.
This is my fluff justification for including a Counts-As version of Arch-Centurion Carnac Commodus (rules available as a PDF on the Forge World site) in my Ultramarines army. I meant it to be a couple of paragraphs but it went on a bit further than that!
ANVADIUS CALDERMANN, THE PENITENT
as the title indicates, I decided recently that I wanted an Apocalypse Datasheet for every unit in Codex Space Marines, and went about creating them.
Some of the units already have datasheets, so I will show this where that is the case, but even then I have created some better suited to...
This is a set of rules I have wanted to make for a long time, mainly because I want to convert the associated models. They are mentioned a few times in Graham McNeill's Ultramarines series at various times.
They may seem overkill at first, but bearing in mind they clock in at 60 pts per model...
Althriel looked at his squad, "here come those stupid Ultramarines brothers, we shall kill the Smurfs before.....Gak!"
"He called us Smurfs Sergeant Apathos...."
"Aye Brother Stavian, he did. But lo, hast thou looked closely."
"Put me down you human oaf..."
"Listen up maggot, you referred to...
Well, I have finally decided to take the plunge and start a painting log, exposing my sporadic painting efforts to the harsh spotlight of LO.
Hopefully having this thread should help to spur me on to get some more painting done, just so that I have something to post!
It should also mean that...
Hey guys, just wanted to get your opinions on my list as I make my way up to 1500 pts. Haven't come across any problems with my 1000 pts list (though I've only played 3 games) so I just expanding on it.
Captain - Artificer armour + power weapon
10 Tactical Marines - Missile launcher + flamer +...
I'm painting Ultramarines and strive for my models to look as dynamic as I can get them.
I have a few questions about different procedures or things I should be informed on to make them look great.
Robes & Banners:
I paint with a light grey, then bestial brown, then bleached bone.
Hi there, I'm a former WH40K player who's been absent for about six or seven years and is looking to get back into the game so to speak. When I left I had a semi-substantial Ultramarines force (details below), and I'm thinking of converting them to Black Legions Chaos Marines to go with some of...
Hey, Ive had a fairly decent space marine army for a while, and I think they do look pretty decent, a really good table top standard, I think. However, there are a couple things that I simply can't do when it come to painting them. One of these is painting my termie's heads white. Whenever I try...
Heres my take on a 2000 points ultramarines army.
this is just a rough sketch:
Artificier Armour/Power Sword/Bolt Pistol/Terminator Honours/Iron Halo: 151 pts
9 Marines (cc)/Furious Charge/Sarg. w/Powerfist,Terminator...
