Space Marine Web Exclusive Ultramarine Captain Showcase

Last year Games Workshop offered two Web Exclusive Ultramarine Captains. I picked them up while they were available and have finally had the time to get them painted. Read on to see how I tackled the first one.

I owned the original model that this was based on and I have fond memories of painting it as a child. With that in mind I decided to paint it closely to the GW style. However, I could not help but make it darker, dirtier, more my style.

Weathering could not be resisted. This was also the first use of my own 32mm resin bases Which I feel gives the model that slightly more epic feel. These were also the first models painted with Ichiban Pro Line brushes which I am definitely a big fan of.

With the model finally finished and no Ultramarine army of my own I am putting this guy up on ebay here.

I shall be posting a showcase for the other Web Exclusive Ultramarine Captain in the next few days. Although, as GW painted him as 2nd Company, who’s Captain is actually Cato Sicarius, I like to think of him as a Veteran Sergeant.

Having been playing tabletop games and painting miniatures for most of my life I have a wealth of information borne from success and from the bitter experience gained from my mistakes in the hobby.

If anyone has any questions about the Twelve Olympians or the hobby in general I am more than happy to discuss them with you.

    Cato sicarius was not the only captain of the 2nd……it could have been his predecessor or his successor. We don’t know that.

      Still, if I put him and Cato on the board together one of them would be a fraud 😉
