I have returned to modelling like Caesar crossed the rubicon. With the interest in the Horus Heresy, and having recently read Know No Fear, I decided to make the Ultramarines 5th Grand Company in the time shortly after the consolidation and embarking on the Great Hunt. The army would include dreadnoughts, tactical squads and a custom model representing Roboute Guilliman. The first thing I was going to do was start with some research. I read the descriptions and searched the great google machine for inspiration. Having found a number of pictures including fantastic cover art and a bunch of deviantart sketches I began compiling what i thought were the bet representations. Some pictures are over the top, but some really great material is available. I'll post some of the pieces in the next post. Next, I began sketching my own ideas. This too will follow. Finally I started putting the pieces together. Below is a teaser of the finished model.
Hope you enjoy. Happy Modelling.
