In a change of pace, and to take a small break from painting Purple, I present to you my Ultramarine Praetor in Cataphractii Terminator armour.
Inspired by the recent Ultramarines pictures from Warhammer Fest and my recent reading of Know No Fear, I decided to paint up the spare Praetor I had.
I've always wanted to collect one Traitor and one Loyalist, and I was preparing for Blood Angels (my first army back in 2nd Edition), but I decided they would play too similar to my Emperor's Children. Reading Know No Fear really put the Ultra's in a different light for me. They are certainly not the boring marine chapter of 40k.
I have yet to decide on the bases. For my Emperor's Children I chose to base them on the defining point for the Legion, Lear. The defining point for the Ultramarines is Calth, so I will most likely choose to do some ruined city bases, but for now, they will remain blank,
Expect to see more Ultramarines in the future to give myself a break every now and then from my Emperor's Children. In the mean time, here's some more pictures.
