Hello everyone.

This is my Ordinators Space Marine Chapter. This has been a rather long project, just on 20 years. The first 10 or so years there were plenty of other armies and projects in between, the last 6 have more or less been devoted to the completion of the chapter.

My chapter consist on mainly infantry and dreadnoughts. At some point I would like to add tanks/transports/flyers, but space is currently a premium, and to me this is complete, though there will always be more marines.

The chapter consists of a 1st "Grand" company. It contains 300 terminators, and a "Specialists Division" of just under 200 Primaris Marines.
2nd - 9th Companies are battle companies. They contain 6 tactical squads(or Sternguard if you so choose), 2 vanguard veteran squads (allows for more customization) and 2 devastator squads, plus command. 3rd company (Green trim) has 1 sternguard squad instead of a vanguard squad. 5th company (Seafoam trim) has bike squads instead of vanguard vets. Each company tends to follow a theme: 2nd-Gold trim/flames/Salamanders, 3rd- Green trim/My original battle company, 4th Yellow trim/Black Templars, 5th Seafoam trim/Dark Angels, 6th Purple trim/Mk Iron Armour, 7th Orange trim/Blood Angels, 8th Grey trim/Space Wolves, 9th Blue trim/crusade/maximus armour.
10th Company is a scout company.
The chapter runs loosely on the older version of marine chapter's composition.

Using the current codexes and rules, though not looking at faq adjustments the Chapter comes in at 55710pts for all companies as tactical marines or 57130 if you took all tactical as sternguard. I only mention the Sternguard as those models better represnt my fluff/lore of my chapter smithing/tinkering with there equipment. I usually play them as Salamanders, but also have the characters to take them as Ultramarines.

Hope some people can enjoy this. I apologize if my spartan bases trigger people. Here is a link to a google drive with more photos if you wish to look. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1mI6G9w5XoiwusKmONjq6KBatHOBOuTyA?usp=sharing

Yes that is 300 Terminators, or 3 companies. The chapter has had to scour the galaxy for relics. found a few extra suits along the way.

The blue guy? Well, along time ago there was a chapter approved article for "movie marines". I did a squad representing the characters from a Internet series called Red vs Blue, and used these rules. The blue guy is Caboose his shoulder is marked with -1 like. He is the only surviving model still in his colours.

A project this large in scale would have inconceivable, but you somehow pulled it off. You could practically pull off a Vraks-scale game with an army like that!

Kudos! The models look amazing, and it’s really cool to see it all arranged like that. Must have taken quite a bit of effort.

Your chapter appears to have an insufficient motor pool - need more rhinos at a minimum, but some additional armored support wouldn't hurt either. You also lack orbital insertion capability, better acquire some additional Drop Pods, a squadron or twos worth of flyers wouldn't hurt either, nor would a couple Thunderhawks.

The scary thing is that all of the models are really well painted. The amount of work that requires boggles the mind.

Yes, I tend not to like having marines without helmets, so where possible I tried to limit hementless heads. I've fixed the link in my description so you can look at more images if you wish in a google drive.
9th Company, the blue trim has got more MkIV Maximus armour, as well as Mk2 crusade pattern.
6th Company, the purple trim is nearly all MkIII Iron armour.

You are not wrong about the limited motor pool. The issue is space to store said vehicles. I do intend to do at least 10 rhinos, and 10 drop pods, so a company of each. After that a squadron of 3 of each vehicle/tank/flyer. Having a full chapter of vehicles would be awesome, but time and space and other projects are a limiting factor.

My lore/fluff for the chapter is that they tend to put more effort into building/maintaining their terminator plate and dreadnoughts, and other rediscovered relics, then larger multi-crew tanks and vehicles.

The chapter can also call on my titan legions if they ever need the "firepower"

Thank you, and also thank you to all the other comments as well.

I feel that I do a decent enough paint job, I have done better works, but have tried to maintain a sort of standard with the chapter, but as you point out it has evolved over time.

The 1st block of 100 terminators in Indomitus Pattern as well as 3rd company with the Green trim, are my earliest and longest standing paint jobs. Though the colour scheme originally did not have white, that was an evolution to break up how dark they were. Later I tried my hand at extreme edge highlights, but wasn't fond of the look, and a LOT of effort to do well.

In some of the Terminators you can see that they are a bit brighter but still dark. I had decided to go with a light dry brush highlight at the time for those squads. During this time I did a bunch of High elves and liked the blue I developed for them. It was much brighter, which is what you then see the bulk of the companies in. 2nd company was the next built and after that point i decided to build the rest of the chapter.

With the Primaris I started doing my normal colours but then decided to have them done in my original non-white colour, but with a metallic sheen, and the blue not a dark. A bit of a throw back to what I originally started painting 20 years ago. Unfortunately no fully assembled models from then exist.

I can only imagine how much storage space is already taken up by what you already own - can't wait to see your posts in a few years once you've bulked up on the vehicles!

Nice one. Was it the plan from day 1 to collect a chapter, or did it happen gradually, like you'd done a company, which is doable in a couple fo years right? and then you just went feth it, in for a penny...

No, it was never the original plan. To begin with I had 3rd company (green trim) and I think it was 30 or 40 terminators. I then decided to make a terminator 1st company of 100. All of these models then had edgehighlights done to them as they were so dark. After doing 200 models like that I decided to instead dry brush a slightly brighter blue. This can be seen on several forgeworld terminator squads and 3 contemptors.

I took a break from doing spacemarines at this point and did a huge amount of fantasy, and other 40 armies. See how my painting had improved I decided to do a new company. So second company (gold trim/flames) happened, it better suited the salamander play style. At this point as well Forge World started releasing unique legion squads for Terminators and infantry, and the calth/prospero boxes appeared. So I decided to increase the terminators to 300 and then make companies out of those boxes. This pushed my chapter out to nearly 4 battle companies and a 300 terminators. At this point I looked at the black templar, dark angels, blood angels, space wolves kits and decided to companied of each of those and the scout company, so the chapter idea was then planned.

Just as I'm nearly two thirds of the way done GW releases primaris. So added them too.

At least they can't legends them out of 30k, right? What was that? Cawl was actually creating Primaris for Horus and they replaced the legions, but then everyone forgot because of the Emperor's pseudo-death, so only Primaris in 30k now as well?

Firstly, that is bloody impressive, hats off to you on an epic endeavour.

This is the sort of thing that should be in White Dwarf, that is if it were no longer a glorified sales device.

Anywho, how much have you used in one game? I strongly doubt that you'll ever get the chance to use it all in one go... Still, if you ever did. Wow!

The objective of the game is to win. The point of the game is to have fun. The two should never be confused.

I hear GW is retconning Tyranids to have won the Horus Heresy. Astartesthropes will be the first big reveal of the New Year.

GW Sales Team - Allegedly: "Tyranids can adapt to anything right? How about Power Armor Tyranids? They can be just like SMs, except bioweapons! Make them super OP as well so all the meta chasers buy 'em by the truck load for the hoard play. Then, a few years down the line and a huge profit margin later, we can say we decided it was a silly idea and completely retcon them out of existence, banning the models from all official tournaments. Thus, effectively selling a bunch of minis with no need to balance them. We will make millions out of this con!"


Automatically Appended Next Post:
All jokes aside though, this collection is awesome! I've seen people with a few SM armies of several thousand points each, but I can't say I've seen any put them together in companies as a whole Chapter. Seeing the all laid out in parade really makes it hit home just how many that is as well. Inspires me to want to grow my own collection to this size, though space is already a problem currently. It also makes me want to do similar with the IG, though that would be a nightmare of a lifetime project considering how big most regiments actually are. I am also envious of your Titans.
