UltramarinesSo Far

I've finally added all of the transfers to the shoulder pads of my nascent Ultramarines army. For some reason the testers dull coat I used to dull down the transfers after applying them left the miniatures with a slight gloss of its own. Maybe I used too much dull coat? Whatever the case, I thought it would be fun to share a quick shot of the army so far. This the the first of the ground forces, as the army already air superiority covered. There is a lot of touch of work to do, which I just don't feel like doing. I like these guys, and if the armor repainting servitors were a little sloppy painting on the gold trim, then who am I to complain. :)

I am not sure I'll post any more photos before the new year. Happy holidays to everyone, and best wishes for the new year.


  1. Lovely looking army. Been following your progress for a while now, thought this would be as good a time as any to tell you your work is inspiring. Love the paint style!

  2. Agree. They look really nice. The blue works so well. Love the progressive tones on the dread :). Well done man!

  3. Love what you are doing, man! The blue (and honestly every color you work with) feels so rich. I love it.

    Two questions:
    1. Mind sharing your palette?
    2. Did you start lighter and then paint in the darker blues? The first images of the speeder look almost like a Space Wolves speeder.

  4. My office has been a guest bedroom for the past few days, so I can't check my recipes, but the basic is starting from black and highlighting up using an air brush. I think I may have already posted the recipe in a comment, but I'll make sure I make it a full post.
