Ultramarines! Or Why did I sell these again ..? Part 2

Welcome to the conclusion of an old project I sold ages ago..  This project was a great test for Deco Art paints and I had got into a great rhythm painting the Ultramarines.  I choose to continue the colour scheme into a new project.

Oldhammer is what many players are calling the 80s period of the hobby.  For this project I wanted to get into some classic models.  That last thing I had painted for the previous project army was Terminators so I decided to continue..

One of the things I like about these models is the concept has not changed much over the years.  They are still very recognisable.  Once I started the squad I quickly added a classic Terminator Captain to the production line.  Again I added designs and detail to the officers.  Though this wasn’t too hard.  The knee pad had an embossed skull & Iron cross onto a quartered background which was copied onto the shoulder pad and belt buckle.

 

For sergeant and assault cannon I didn’t do anything too fancy.  Sometimes completing a project is better than being too ambitious and not completing it.  It can be seen that The Inquisition has favoured both those brothers and they proudly display the accolade.

 

After completing both projects they went into my eBay shop.  The RT Terminator squad lead to a further commission of more terminators from the original release.  The client was going to use them all for Space Hulk and had special bases prepared so I left the bases blank.

 

I really enjoyed this commission a great excuse to paint more models.  Perhaps one day I will revisit my painting roots.  Though there are excellent models being released all the time, it’s important to remember the classic models from yesteryear.
