Horus Heresy 30K Ultra Marines
A client has asked me to build and paint a 30K themed Ultra Marine Terminator Squad and a Leviathan Dreadnought.
This was quite exciting as even though the Ultra Marines are the focal point of Games Workshops advertising I've not seen many armies on the table in a long time.
The main focus for me on this project was the Leviathan, this is a great kit from Forge World and very easy to pose. I’ve set him as requested and added magnets at the waist and on the weapons. The shoulders have also been hinged so that they move outwards for a little extra show and future proofing for other weapons.
The blue is Macragge Blue over a Black prime and transition highlighted with Caledor Sky. The weathering is Forge World weathering powders. He's based on Tarmac to complement the clients playing surface and suitably grubby.
All five terminators and the leviathan came out better than expected. The client is really happy with them and has asked for reinforcements.
You should start seeing images of 20 new Space Marines and a Legion Sicaran coming through training soon.
