Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Take and hold that refinery!

After having seen Elsmore's splendid looking Blood Angels I wanted to make my infantry also something special and not just do the normal 5 figures in a row on a 1 x 4 cm strip with a bit of sand. However what basing-theme should I pick? The major theme for my army is toxic wasteland. So what can be found there besides poisonous, radiated lakes (amphibious marines? Not my cup of tea), waste dumbs (yeah, maybe) and ruins (well pretty standard, I'm sure I'll do some later on but not for my first bases), how about a refinery?...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Release the Kraken!

A few of my friends told me now that I'm painting up an Epic force in such detail I also should make some terrain to match that level of detail. I always prefer painting miniatures to painting terrain, actually I have only ever painted one piece of terrain (a small ruin that I build out of styrodur). Then again I just started painting 1,5 years ago. Well, what I want to say is that first of all I will be painting my Ultramarines and after that if I feel like it I'll probably do some terrain. However I have...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Rock’n'Roll

So the Vindicators are ready, let's move on to something a bit more exciting... motorcylces, attackbikes to be specific There's really not much to say about them. I've put them on 2 x 4 cm bases, the same size that I use for other infantry models (ruleswise bikes count as infantry and attack bikes count as light vehicles). I would have liked for them to have a cloud of dust hanging behind them, showing their aggressive speed and riding but I wasn't sure how to realize this (I don't like the look of cotton wool on models,...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Time to get dirty!

As you might have taken from my previous posts, I'm really into weathering and battle damage, I just love the look of a well rusted vehicle that looks like it really has seen some use on the battlefield. Some people seem to be under the impression that the Ultramarine Techmarines have incorporated Teflon or something similar into the battlesuits and armour of their vehicles and therefore they always look impeccable and fresh. I'm here to proof these people wrong, Ultramarines get dirty, too! Mine have been on a long crusade and have seen a lot of fights with...

Painting up an Epic Ultramarine force - Small steps at first

After painting up my first Rhino I wanted something bigger to see how the basing I opted for (3 x 4 cm masonite) would look there, so I picked up a Land Raider Prometheus and painted away... Why did I opt for not only basing my infantry (mandatory ruleswise) but also my vehicles (purely optional ruleswise)?  It will pull the army together and will make them look like a whole. For me this is the most important point. It really makes a big difference on the table and when you put them on display in your cabinet they will absolutely rock! ...
