Subject: Ustrello paints- The Ten Thousand: Vexilla bearer pt 2
Well this is my final update before I go to GenCon and move into my apartment for the new semester. But this time I will be bringing my painting stuff so I won't be quite as active painting wise but I won't disappear like last year.
First up, I finally got the ice waterfall done after about 5 different tries and I am really liking it. And I finally got around to finishing the vexilla bearer. Since forgeworld will be at gencon I am thinking I will try and pick up some of the custodes terminators because the models look amazing and I really want to paint some
Sorry I've been away, but hot damn are your ultras fan-fraking-tastic.
I am totally jealous man. I'll have to go back and see if you posted how you achieved that... because its re-damn-diculous.
You should be super proud about how those guys turned out!
Thank you very much! I did post a painting guide a page or two ago so that should answer any questions you have.
Well I finally got around to building the terminators and man they are huge. They seemed to have captured that old school style while at the same time making them look good, while I am not playing 30k and these do not have 40k rules I will none the less try and get them painted up soon.
So I've settled into my new apartment fairly well and finally got around to painting. This time I am working on the last intercessor squad and one of the LTs for my battalion detachment for my ultramarines, I have gotten the gold faces and leather done, and am working on the silver bits. Sorry for the blurry picture I was super tired
So it has been a while hasn't it? School has been going well, but this semester has been tough so far so I haven't had much time to paint. But yesterday I was able to get some painting in and finish the base coating on the rest of the 2nd intercessor squad and the LT. I even was able to start work on the clear red for the sgt's helmet and the red stripe for the LT.
Also I am starting a small side project of a deathwatch kill team. Just a 5 man squad a captain and a razorback to fit a fully role in my army.
So I finally got around to finished the LT and the last 5 intercessors, and to do a change of pace I started work on the captain in gravis armor (of which I have the base coats down and the washes done). After the captain I will work on the hellblasters and the last LT. After that it will most likely be greyfax and finishing the custodes venerable land raiders. With that the models will be done for AoP and all that is left is to finish painting the temple which a friend is 3d printing for me.
Lastly a nice little family shot of what I have done for the ultramarines so far, 10 intercessors, 1 redemptor dread, 1 ancient, and 1 LT
My ancient &amp;amp;quot;lab&amp;amp;quot;
Those look phenomenal! The metallic blue makes me wish I had chosen UM for my marine chapter, not Exorcists! I hope you do add more to those guys, cause they're really fun to paint and have plenty more in store i'm sure.

I am adding the normal captain for sure, and a little 5 man scout squad with bolters. So far none of the other models have really spoken to me, besides the aggressors so I may do them and do the dakka version as my armies lack crowd control.

Thanks man! I am doing a captain and a scout squad and maybe aggressors, but as of right now I am finishing what I have then the land raiders for the custodes. After that I plan on doing some deathwatch and scions to round my army out fluff wise.
Well I got some more work in on the captain, he should be finished tomorrow. All that is left is to do some edge highlighting on the gold, finishing the eyes and sealing in the transfers. After that I will work on the 5 hellblasters and the last LT and then it is onto the land raiders which I am very much looking forward to.
Well as promised I finished the captain, intercessors and lieutenant. I also got a lot of work in on the hellblasters and they should be done before the week is out, after that I plan on working on the last lieutenant and Inquisitor Greyfax and that should finish up most of my ultramarines (bar a standard primaris captain and 5 scouts).
It is kinda hard to see, but I tried to do some more heat weathering on the plasma gun tips this go around
Bit of a general update, I was finally able to build and prime my ultramarine primaris captain, prime my deathwatch frag cannon dude and prime and get the base coat down on my custodes terminators. But of course I ran out of wash 2/3rds of the way through on them.
Thanks man! I will done with them soon, bar a new captain and maybe that new superheavy that FW is coming out with
Well I am about done with the DI set, I just have to seal in the transfers on the hellblasters, paint the rims of the bases and do some general clean up. For the LT I need to also seal in the transfers, finish the base and the power sword but beyond that I am done.
Thanks man! I actually finished them today, well besides a 5 man scout squad and a primaris captain that is
As I said I have finished the ulltramarines today and did a small family shot of them. I also got some work in on Greyfax which is turning out nice and I am really liking her model. I plan on working on the land raiders soon once I get an airbrush up here and I can fix my overspray mistakes.

Good start on Greyfax as well, such a lovely and understated sculpt, looks fun to paint.
Thanks! I like doing that shaven effect because it adds character to the models. But you are right on greyfax she is a really fun model to paint!
