Same as the one above;
Undercoat: Chaos black
Base coat: Macragge blue
Wash: Drakenhoff nightshade
Layer: Altdorf Guard blue
Highlight: Calgar blue
Glaze: Guilliman blue
I stole it from the GW site, minus the drybrush, I only use that on the rank and file troops, in lieu of the highlight, for speed's sake.

Thanks for the positive feedback

Thanks a lot, I've been watching your blog too, looking good!

Buuuuuuut, update time. Had to send my phone off for repairs, so no pictures sorry, but I did go and pick up the remaining pieces of broken models from my girlfriend's mum's and I've been able to (mostly) rescue two of them. The 2008 Gamesday Captain (my former Captain Fabian) and the 2008 U.S webstore promo Sergeant. Now, there are pictures of them a while ago in my gallery, but the old Fabian has lost his gun and hammer arm at the elbow.

I'm thinking of forming them into part of Fabian's command squad, just to really have a special looking squad on the field. I'm thinking of making the Captain into Company Champion, and the U.S Sergeant as a Veteran Sergeant, what do you guys and girls think of that?

Right, trying out my girlfriend's new camera, here's the test picture, Fabian with his redesigned tabbard.

There's a strange flash effect on the banner looking like white dots, no idea about this.

Aaaaand, the WIP Company Champion, former Captain model that got severely broken before I ever finished him, so is being rebuilt and re-purposed.


What do we think about how he'll come out as a champion?

And please ignore the hair brush...

I've been looking at that guy, looking good.
I gave Fabian the plasma pistol/ power sword combo because that's what he used in the first story I read about him in, whilst blowing the face off a Hive Tyrant. And the Champion now just has a sword and shield, with the pistol holstered on his hip.

And now for the pictures. I actually did some painting last night. Quite a lot actually, I even managed to finish the Champion. Upon seeing the pictures, I've noticed a few bits need a touch up, but you get the idea. I also did the helmet skull too thickly.



And here's the good Captain with his new faithful bodyguard.


What do we think then guys and girls?

That Champion is one of my favorites that I have seen you do so far! I do have a question though which is what color you use for the base layer of the gold. Also, as I can't really tell from the photo, are the raised parts on the mouth grills painted a metallic color? If not, have you ever thought of doing this? The same thing works with the backpack vents and I have found that as long as there is some black left in the recesses for shadows it can be a small detail that adds a lot to the finished model.

Ever look at a great model and realise you painted it awfully? Since I painted Fabian, I think I've gotten a lot better, and his Company Champion looked better than him. I may also have gotten jealous of Davian Thule's and Indrick Boreale's fantastic gold armour. So, here's what I'm doing about it.

There's also the next member of the Command squad brewing in there too.
Now, I know blue helmets are the norm for Captains, but do we think gold could work?
I'll be keeping the right gauntlet leather looking, the cape will get fancier, I may or may not sculpt some fancy decoration on the greaves, and I'll be doing the chest piece and greaves gold, just the decorations if I decide to do them. I'm going to make him even more of a well deserving Ultramarines Captain.

Here's how the repaint is looking so far. There's been some debate on whether the gold plate would work, both on here and B&C, had loads of great feedback over there about getting gold on without going overboard, but my heart was set on a gold chestplate, I've been talked out of the gaudy legs though. Here's the body so far, highlights and more layers of gold pending.

Now you have started the painting the gold chestplate looks good! But I think thats all the gold you need as you dot want him to be too blingly and be mestaken for a BA!

So I stripped Fabian again, he was getting a bit too blingy. Whilst i decide how to keep him looking good I was going to finish painting something at least.
Then I bought a Stormtalon instead. Oopsies. Now that this badboy has kept me busy on my night off, I can't decide how to finish it off. I'm against magnetizing, I'd much rather just buy a few models to get more options, so I need to decide how to arm it, I'm leaning more towards Skyhammer or Typhoon missiles, but I'd ideally want it to make a decent bodyguard for the Stormraven I intend on getting soon. So if anyone has any experience with it, that'd be very much appreciated.

Cheers in advance guys and girls.

Well, I went ahead and put Skyhammer missiles on the Talon, that many shots was just too tempting. I also added a few shinies to it too, a spare Iron Halo, a heraldry shield, couple of extra Imperial eagles, some scrolls. Just some nice subtle things to keep the model looking great, but with my little twist on it.



I also painted Fabian's arm. Yes, just the arm, but I'm really happy with how it looks, the newly re-primed Fabian should look great when he's done now, not too garish, but, as the original thread was; An Ultramarines Captain, worthy of the title.


And excuse the 20p, I needed something to prop it up.

Any C&/orC guys? Cheers for looking anyway!

That gold is by far better! As for the storm tallon I'd not to bother to glue on the weapon options so then you can just swich them around as they can just slot in. Sorry a bit late now that you have glued it! TBH both missles are fine, one is the best tho can't rember! But your lodaout is pretty good for tanks...

Thanks a lot bro, I'm really happy with how the arm came out, and you can't really see it on the picture, but I managed to get the glow of the plasma coils looking a lot sharper, I was gunna try some OSL, but I think it's looking pretty good.
As for the Talon, it's for taking down light vehicles, and troops, I plan on getting it around the back of fliers and just spamming them with shots, so hopefully it should do the job.

Now, I need everyone to make me promise to have some form of update up tonight. Work have given me the night off, so I should use this new found free time wisely. I will have an update on here within the next 12 hours!

Backpack and cape painted


I quite like the darker cape, and I've found a dark brown to be better for scroll work than black. I'm going to make a start on either Fabian himself or the servo skulls in a minute.
   
Made in gb

Here's how Fabian's looking so far. The gold bits and the loin cloth are done, the armour needs touching up, highlighting and glazing, the purity seals all need doing, as do the eyes, the leather parts have had their first coat, the grenades, shoulder trim and sword all need starting, and the piping on the stomach needs doing too. There's also a ton of parts need adding on, such as the finished bits above, 2 servo skulls, the banner, a small eagle clasp on the rope, signum and the GS extension of the cape to be modeled on last, after the whole thing is assembled.
So, lots to be done, but he's shaping up nicely, far better than his previous form, and now out shadowing his champion.




So, what does everyone think of the good Captain?

And Hazzer, you haven't been updating as often lately, this makes me sad.

Great news, I'll be waiting for any updates.
Also, anyone reading this, go check out Hazzer's blog, it has even more Ultramriney goodness.

tigerstein wrote:Lovely looking ultras.


Why thank you kindly

But now, here's the paints I've used so far on Fabian this time around, and bear in mind, I've still got other bits to paint...

One model, one small model, and all that so far.

Serious picture time though, here's Fabian as he is now. Couple of little touch ups need doing, and I still need to paint and glue on 2 Servo Skulls and a small Signum. After those are done, I can get the GS out and bring the cape around over the shoulders and onto the clasp, and when that's dried, I can stick on the new clasp from the Commander box. When all that's done I can glue on the backpack (thankfully already painted, see above) and make a start on my old arch-nemesis... The backpack banner!
But yeah, Fabian:


EDIT: And I need to paint the power sword. Oh woe is me and my slow painting hands.

Thank you very much, I'm really happy with how he's shaping up now.
Just getting a quick update in before midnight, that was personal challenge, get one more update before midnight. Painted the skulls and signum and glued them on, I'll start the cloak later tonight, or in the morning, depending on whether I sleep or not.

Apologies for bad camera work, as I said, in a rush to fulfill my little personal challenge. But I'm loving the new, more imposing look I've given him.
All C&C, as always, much appreciated.
