Ultramarines Forge World Rhino/Razorback WIP
With the first of my 10 man tactical squads for my 1000pts Ultramarines Army complete, it took little convincing to revert back to armour, looking to build a battle field taxi for them. I will do a separate post on the second squad having used the first squad to refine the way I plan to paint all the infantry for this force.
I am trying to build a 35k Ultramarine force – I really like the new CSM releases (the Sternguard and Hunter/Stalker) and want to be able to include the Forge World Heresy designs as well. The new tactical marines are great but I don’t want to go down the road of full Heresy or full 40k… anyway. In short I want to mix the elements of GW I like with the FW stuff. The best way I can make this work in my opinion is experimenting with paint schemes.
I really like the grey Razorback that pops up in the old codex and on the back of the Razorback box. I don’t know the background to why grey is used but I have seen Land Raider designs using it as well. I think a mixture of some vehicles/infantry with grey panels in the design will do 2 things; 1. Give me a unique spin on your typical Ultramarine paint scheme and 2. Meet the 35k theme I am looking for.
