Chapter Champion? Looks great. Yes he has quite good rules now. I much prefer your version as I never liked the OG one. The Chapter Ancient is also pretty good as he gets the same range as the Relic banner (9") something else for you to convert.

The entries are impressive too (that's what she said). I'm always impressed by your consistent output, I tend to have splurges followed by long periods of inaction. Still I've got a bunch of stuff done recently and don't have too much to do before I start my own Primaris stuff. I definitely want to do some more Inters and Inecptors.

That's a blast of models right in the face, that is. Great job. The new Marine especially looks quite cool.

Ever since 8th dropped with the more restictive gear options, my old HG squad banner guys has been on the short list of mod I need to do. He’s got a bolter right now, which should be a simple swap for power sword. Just need to break a knife out and paint a spare bit. Not that I field a lot of ancients, chapter, company, or otherwise. But it’s good to have options.

My old chapter champ was packing a TH, which is not an option these days, hence the new guy.

This year has not been a good one for motivation and productivity. I’ve been keeping at it, but some days I just want to sit and vegetate. Not a good thing. I might not be going out and being as social as I should, but at least I’m not compltely passive. Year is 2/3rds over, and I’m not sure I’m going to make my goals. There are some cool looking minis on the horizon though, so those might spark some interest.

Anyway, back to the paintbench with me. No other plans for this long weekend, might as well try to be productive.

It’s a rainy day out, I’ve got the day off, drinking my coffee and waiting for the wash to dry on the deathwatch on the bench. So time for some random woolgathering.

Over in the “Players with large (4,000+) armies thread, Elbows broke down his army by categories, and I thought it would be interesting to see how mine set. As I’ve got it plugged into battlescribe, it was just a mater of pulling my roster up and grabbing the numbers. After I went through and corrected all the errors I get when the codex updates. I should probably doublecheck everything, sometimes units get cut and replaced completely, so I need to re-add them. But here is where we stand.

Ultramarines. 13,104 points

HQ -- 3,196 points, 24% (31 models)
Troops -- 1,979 points, 15% (130 models)
Elites -- 3,019 points, 23% (70 models)
Fast Attack -- 1,068 points, 8% (40 models)
Heavy Support -- 2,186 points, 16% 50 models)
Flyer -- 502 points, 4% (2 models)
Dedicated Transport -- 815 points, 6% (8 models)
Lord of War -- 350 points, 3% (1 model)

And a quick count puts me at 363 models, including tanks and the like. Recounting to get the category numbers comes up less, but I suspect that’s the mess of the swap shelf at work. One of these days I should pull everything off the shelf and get a full army pic and a detailed tally, and glamor shots of the units that still need it. Might be a good project for a weekend when I have The Boy.

Now that number could be a lot higher. This is at shelf deployment, and there are a number of wargear options that could be added. Slots are also a little skewed, as my swap shelf consists of a lot of loose heavy/special weapons and old sergeants that were formed up into Dev squads and command squads just to tally them up.

I shouldn’t be surprised that troops made up only 15% of my points, while being over a third of the model count. Also the fact that the HQs eat up a quarter of my points for being less than a tenth of the model count is not shocking. Little surprised by the elite model count. I know I have 3x10 stern/van vets squads, and 3x5 terminators. I forget I also have 2x5 30k era terminators, and all the dreads, apothecaries and non-HQ characters add up very fast.

Anyway, that took longer than I expected. Of course, I was distracted and wandered around while typing it up. Hope everyone enjoys their day.

Second black down on the inceptors. Need grey edges, gloss coats for lenses/wax seals, assembly, decals and bases. Honestly just a few days if I put my mind to it. And a chunk of that is glue drying.

The reivers are ready for their second blacks, and then all of that. Plus their guns/gun arms.

Not bad progress for the weekend. I should get started on the bikes, but want to finish these guys first.

Wow, that is a lot of points of Ultramarines...that does not include the ones that you painted for your son that he is using as Salamanders does it?

Cheers,

They Boy has his own minis, which he paints at his own pace. When he’s over here playing games, he will normally borrow from my collection of Ultras to fill out (or just make) his army. So I don’t paint Ultras for him to use, but he gets to use mine. I have painted a few Salamanders for him (gravis captain, sternguard) which are not counted in my tally. That list is only my painted Ultras. Primed/built/on sprue not included. Also not Deathwatch, Blood Angels, or any other non-Ultra forces. Filthy Xenos are right out. Ballpark guess for total painted 40k minis on the shelves would probably be around 18K, more if I knock the dust off some really old stuff and try to figure out rules for them.

When you have 13k+ on the shelf it’s actually pretty easy to put two 2,000 point lists on the table. It might be an interesting thought experiment to see how many lists I could break it down into. Could I do a battle royal with 6x2k armies? Would I run out of certain elements, making some lists just dysfunctional lumps of points slapped together? I suspect 6 would be pushing it; could probably do 4.

In painting news, put the greylines down on one of the inceptors. Did the eyes/wax seals yesterday. Getting there.

Impressive data there. I have no idea what I have. Probably a symptom of not playing. Digging the DW Inceptors.

Heh.

My collections getting so big, sometimes I forget what I have. Good to do a survey from time to time.

Finished all the highlights on the inceptors, and glued one pack on. Once they paint is a little more dry on the other, his will get glued on as well. After that, decals and bases. Plus any touch-ups I notice.

And then, bikes.

I’ll try to grab a pic when they are a little more together.

I forgot to paint the top of the base white. Having them separate from the mini through me off rhythm. Not a huge deal, the flock paste covers it pretty well anyway. Which is the last step for these guys. Glue is drying on the rocks and tufts now.
For whatever reason decals were a bear on these guys. Ruined the one on the Fulminator, had to start over.

Put down the first red on the bike canopies. Also, the second black coat on one of the reivers.

Edit:
And flocked. Plus a few more red coats down. Probably enough; I can never get it as smooth as I’d like. Need to give them plenty of time to dry/cure, then I’ll break out the tap and give them their stripes. Plus start the rest of the bikes.

Put the first black down on the riders.

I love the forced perspective on the guy on the left in that pic. Two more in the books. Looking forward to the jetbikes.

Inceptors look pretty nice! Wish I could see the shoulder pads better to tell which Chapters they originally came from. I guess we'll get more pics whenever you post your final challenge entry pics though, right?

My armies (re-counted and updated on 1/27/19, including modeled wargear options):
Dark Angels: ~11200 | Space Marines (Blood Ravens and others): ~1300 | Space Wolves: ~3400
Inquisition: ~300 | Officio Assassinorum: ~500 | Imperial Knights: ~800 | Talons of the Emperor: ~500
Tau Empire: ~6200 | Chaos Space Marines (various legions): ~8100 | Death Guard: ~2800 | Chaos Daemons (all types): ~2100

Nice work on the inceptors, particularly liking the black armour and the perspective in the pic.

The forced perspective is due to their angle. If I actually want to get them in frame I need to take a pic low and to the front, so no long shots. This does fun things with the depth of focus. This long shot should give you an idea how far forward they lean. Hate those new flight stands.

Chapters are transfers from the old vehicle sheet. As it turns out, the winged lightning bolt is from a primaris chapter, the Fulminators. So I painted the shoulder pad to match his chapter colors from the new codex. The rest of his armor would be a nice blue. The other guy I need to make a chapter name for. I didn’t recognize it, and couldn’t find out who it belonged to on a quick search. So I just picked some colors I didn’t have a lot of in my KTs for variety and just ran with it. A lot of the non-scuplted chapters are going to be like that. Find a random transfer, see if I can find chapter colors to match. If none are found, just pick some to complement the squad. Going to be a lot of that with the reivers and aggressors.

Bikes are getting there. Started the stripes, drybrushed the silvers. Still a lot of work on the bikes and riders to go.


I’ve got a lot of random transfers for Deathwatch, I should select some for the reivers. Speaking of which, I got the second guy’s black down, so next step is the edgeing. And more work on the guns, got the drybrush down on those. Plugging away.

I’ve got one more still on sprue. No idea what I’ll do with it.
