Ultramarines 1000pts, Army Lists and the distractions along the way! (At last!..)



Here are some shots of everything I have finished since Apr 2013.  1000pts would have come up sooner but things inevitably caught my eye (the Glaive, the Scorpion, the Falchion and Terminators – most of which still unfinished!! Terrible ><). 







The look and feel when set out like this is pretty realistic or as realistic as a Space Marine paint scheme can be if you see where I am coming from.  The models set out look like a lot of the pictures Forge World produce (the ones that look like film action shots, only not quite the same quality).





The Grey and Gold that appears throughout the Army add some great extra colour to the blue and I will keep this going.  I thought about changing the Land Raider somehow but actually I think it works fine even though it is just blue.  Most of the infantry is just blue and they look good.




My list at 1000pts is as follows:

Tigurius

10 Tactical Marines (Lascannon, Flamer, Combi-Flamer) – Drop Pod
10 Tactical Marines (Lascannon, Flamer, Combi-Flamer) – Drop Pod

5 Sternguard (3 Combi-meltas) – Drop Pod

5 Devastators – 4 Plasma Cannons

Aegis Defence Line
Quad Gun

So what next?  Well I am already playing at 1500pts and enjoying some success with the Ultramarines.  Here’s how that will look – I use the Land Raider to bring up more points fast for now and in fairness it performs pretty well.  This list also shows what I am working on next in italics:

Chapter Master; Shield Eternal, TH, Auspex, Artificer Armour
Tigurius

10 Tactical Marines (Lascannon) - Rhino
10 Tactical Marines (Flamer, Combi-Flamer) – Drop Pod
5 Scouts

5 Sternguard (3 Combi-meltas) – Drop Pod
5 Sternguard (2 Combi-flamers) – Drop Pod

Stormtalon Gunship (Skyhammer Missiles)
Stormtalon Gunship (Skyhammer Missiles)

Thunderfire Cannon
Thunderfire Cannon

Not much point talking tactics as 7th in bound, but this works pretty well – lots of fun stuff I can do with Gate of Infinity and the other Divination powers. 

Not only does it look nice, it is starting to play pretty well to which is great.  I hope it carries across into 7th! HTB.

  1. The grey/gold really does make your ultramarines stand out, the look far more interesting than the 'normal' ultramarine colour schemes you see, all in all it's an impressive army.
