Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Terminator Squad

•May 6, 2012 • Leave a Comment

After a looooong hiatus, I am back!

The box art…

I guess this is the final jigsaw in building a balance ultramarines army.  This box set comes with 4 terminators and 1 terminator sergeant model.

Such hulking madness…

This is the sergeant with power sword. I did away with the flag as its kinda silly.

Standard terminator with storm bolter (combination of 2 bolters) and power fist:

According to the Codex, 1 out of 5 terminators may choose either a heavy flamer, missile launcher or assault cannon.  This terminator selected the assault cannon. I painted it to look well-worn:

Look at the difference between a Terminator and a standard space marine:

My Ultramarines army…. hope that it is more well-balanced now:

Maybe an assault squad next?

Another much needed addition to my Ultramarines army….

The box art…

The Vindicator boasts a lethal  strength 10 Demolisher Cannon. With its dozer blade, a player can re-roll a Difficult terrain test.

Vindicator without the dozer blade…

With dozer blade and full chapter markings…

Side profiles…

Huge shell for the Demolisher Cannon…

I chose the hunter killer missile as the secondary weapon…

Now this is what i call a PROPER tank!

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Tactical Squad

It is said that a tactical squad is the backbone of a space marine army.

The 10 man squad is primarily armed with bolters but you have a choice to take along 2 heavy weapons.

This is my first HQ unit, and my army is now a GO!

This kit gives u lots of options with a variety of war gear to choose from.

The box art…

This unit sports the bolter and the relic sword. I used lots of gold to resemble a Roman army general…

For the Imperium!

Overall a satisfying build.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Dreadnought

•December 5, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I decided not to get the Assault Squad as they may not complement my current army, which focuses on long range firepower. So after consulting my local hobby store, i turned my attention to the Dreadnought which dishes out impressive long range firepower. It also has close range weapons options to deal with enemy troops that manage to break through my screen of firepower.

The box art…

Ultra Marines Dreadnought with the Assault Cannon and Dreadnought close combat weapon (with built in heavy flamer) – Total 125 points:

I dry-brushed the autocannon and the heavy flamer… making it looks really old and rusty…

The close combat weapon with built in heavy flamer…

Rear view… the Venerable Dreadnought has 4 exhaust pipes compared to the 2 on this regular Dreadnought!

Runners showing optional weapons and gear: Twin-linked Lascannon, missile launcher, searchlight.

Dry-brushing…

I now have a 500+ points army.

Next up shall definitely be a HQ unit. Definitely.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Predator

Finally a Predator to lend some heavy support to the ground troops.  Its basically a suped-up Rhino to perform the anti-vehicle/personnel role.

The box art…

I decided that my Predator’s primary weapon will be the autocannon. The side sponsons will feature lascannons to deal with enemy heavy armour. Finally, I opt for the storm bolter instead of a hunter killer missile.

The turret and sponsons can swivel or you can just glue it fix in one position.

The rear ramp can be lowered to expose the interior of the Predator… really cool…

However this feature is merely superficial as Predators do not have transport capacity.

More Predator goodness…

Techmarine handling the Stormbolter…

My Ultramarines army now stands at 454 points ^^

Next up should be a HQ unit or Assault Space Marines. Time will tell ^^
