Hobby Update: Ultramarines Chaplain and Tigurius
I’ve been working on so many different 40k Projects I decided it was time to finish up a few of the big characters that are featured in a lot of my Ultramarine batreps.
Recently I showed the awesome Lieutenant my friend from D6Evolution (shout out to Wes again) sent me from the UK:
And to add to that, we finally have the considerably more useful Chaplain:
He was actually a quicker paint for me. I’ve been using my Black Recipe from Black Legion and the cloak was a lot of fun and I did some goofy things with it but I think it all worked out fine.
The thing about the cloak is that it can look -very- similar in tonal quality to the armour. I did not like the lack of contrast and although it took more time I decided to lighten up the bottom of the cloak and the ridges or waves of fabric. This (to me) added a much needed contrast so it would still pop a bit on the table top!
Next up is one of my favourite characters in the Ultramarine’s lore, Tigurius:
TIgurius was complicated. I wanted some scarred armour, and I elected to stay consistent with my Primaris Librarian and give him glowing eyes as opposed to pupils.
So I went with a glow on the Rod head… sorry it’s a little better in person but blown up you can see it’s a bit out of focus. Tiggy’s head is also a glow with deep thought as he considers his next magic trick.
So there’s a few figs I spent some time on. Right now I’m working on:
Adeptus Mechanicus (4 Ironstrider Ballstarii, and the Dunestider transport)
Ultramarines (A pair of the new Invictus Warsuits)
Black Legion (I made a small tweak to a fig to make my own Ghorisvex’s Teeth Lord)
Chaos Knights (I’m working on the two matching War Dogs to go with my Tyrant/Valiant)
Thanks for checking this out!
