Horus Heresy Space Marine's

Recommended Posts

With time on my hands now I thought I'd get on and reduce the stash a bit.


Many, many, many, years ago, I was introduced to a strange table top battle game called Space Marine by a mate and his brother. It was set in something called the Warhammer 40K Universe during the Horus Heresy.


All very strange, but the companies of troops and tanks looked impressive and we had great full blowing the wotsits out of each other's forces. Many years of fun playing GW games stemmed from that first introduction, but the Hours Heresy setting still fascinated me.


Forward 30 plus years and GW are  a monster of a company, worldwide domination no less than their objective. But I have a big soft spot for the stories set in the Heresy era, and with 50+ books and models galore I'm obviously not alone.


These are the GW MkIII Space Marine figure, there's 10 in a box so there will be a few more posted going forward. 


First up 






Space Wolf Marine painted with Vallejo and Tamiya acrylic. Weathered with AK interactive and oil washes plus some Tamiya weathering powders.










The modern poster boys, the Ultramarines. Same process, and paints. 










Not sure what I'll paint the others as, will see what I've got in the paint locker and go from there.


Stay safe all, and happy modelling!

Coming on nicely! 

The plastic Mk.III and Mk. IV kits are an absolute godsend. The resin ones are OOP now, I think, but they were far too expensive. I’m still kicking myself for not picking up the Calth/Prospero box sets when they were available.
