Ultramarine Primarch Roboute Guilliman
"Why do I still live? What more do you want from me? I gave everything I had to you, to them. Look what they've made of our dream. This bloated, rotting carcass of an empire is driven not by reason and hope but by fear, hate and ignorance. Better that we had all burned in the fires of Horus' ambition than live to see this." —Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the Ultramarines, reflecting upon the state of the Imperium of the late 41st Millennium and his devotion to the Emperor of Mankind
Roboute Guilliman, sometimes referred to as the "Avenging Son," "The Victorious," "The Master of Ultramar" and "The Blade of Unity", is the Primarch of the Ultramarines Space Marine Legion and its myriad subsequent Second Founding Successor Chapters. Held by some as a paragon among the Emperor's sons, Roboute Guilliman was as much a patrician statesman as he was an indefatigable warrior. A being of preternatural intelligence, cold reason and indomitable will, Guilliman forged his XIII Legion into a vast force of conquest and control, a weapon by which he made himself the master of a stellar domain in the Eastern Fringe of the galaxy, the Realm of Ultramar, which during his lifetime spanned five hundred worlds.
The Gathering Storm brought Roboute back to 40K. Not only that GW also released a splendid miniature. Like the Incarne it was a mini that I had to get used to. After building it and finally painting it, I just love the sculpt.
I also chose different colours as the blue ‘eavy Metal paint job, since I will use him together with my Blood Angel Primaris force and some Custodes. And since Roboute is the de facto Leader of Mankind now I chose the all over golden look. And since I still do not like NMM I used good old fashioned gold and brown ink.
Many complained about the head sculpt of Roboute, IMO it is all a question of how you paint him. I like the noble Roman emperor look a lot, same goes for the helmet, it is only a bit too small IMO.
Blood Angel Primarch Sanguinius
Minis sculpted (probably) by Scibor. I bought the minis quite cheap on ebay. IMO one of the best aftermarket Sanguinius sculpts! Since I still do not like NMM I used good old fashioned gold and brown ink.
Ultramarine, Heresy era Thousand Son, Space Wolf
Here you will find occasionally some painted Space Marines. After selling my Space Wolves in 2002, it was always itching me to start Marines again. I am still not sure which chapter to choose, since GW pumped out 1000+ special rules and chapters...
I start with a Deathwatch Marine. Small conversion, the upper body is a Bike Marine, the rest just out of the box plastic (plus the DW shoulder pad). And of course his last xeno scum victim has to be on the base.
Nice background, nice rules and IMO nice colour scheme. I started with the Emperors Champion, after that just one Trooper to see how fast I can be.
