Ultramarines Captain by SOCMaster Ultramarines Captain by SOCMaster
Usually I wouldn't upload miniatures to DA, as I know folks are waiting for our webcomic, but in this case I have to admit I'm actually too proud to resist this urge... Feedback appreciated!

As so many people left so many kind words, I've decided it might be a good idea to post the link to CMON. If you'd like to vote, feel free. Feedback appreciated even more over there!

And by the way, something I'd like to add:
My darling girlfriend (which might be in desperate need of some spanking) gave this hero of the Ultramarines the less fortunate name of...

Follow this [link] and you'll see. ^^

This is pretty impressive! Like how you converted the hand to hold the shield. :clap:

That's actually wasn't that much work; the hand is from the new Sanguinary Guard sprue. ^^
But thanks anyway :-)

Kritikpunkte: der helle Teil des Umhangs ist zu sauber und das Gold des Adlers auf der Brust und das Silber des Schwertes hat keine besonderen Aktzente.

Aber das ist das einzige was die Stimmung der Miniatur trübt - die Pose ist einfach bombastisch gut, du hast die Rüstung, die Details und vor allem den Umhang schön gemalt.

Außerdem finde ich eigentlich alle UM Minis aus deinem Rogan's Kram Thread sehr schön und detailiert bemalt. Stell doch noch mehr Fotos hier ein, kommt sicher gut an. Eine sehr gute, professionelle Mini - du bekommst von mir 9/10^^

Grüßle Ep

Hm... Mit dem Schwert hast du definitiv recht, aber um ehrlich zu sein, bin ich froh, dass ich es wenigstens so hinbekommen habe. Inzwischen läuft das Ganze zwar sicherlich besser, aber... na ja. Die Mini ist schließlich ewig alt ^^

Was den Mantel angeht, kann ich dir nicht zustimmen; ich WOLLTE das Ding so sauber und hübsch haben. Ein Captain pflegt sein Zeug schließlich ;-)

Und ein neues Bild ist online :-)

Thanks a lot, friend.
Love that kind of feedback - sadly, I ruined the model a while ago - tried to give it another base and had a few accidents :-(

Why does he have a Crux Terminatus?
Reply

SOCMaster Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011
First, it's part of the model (c.f. Masters of the Chapter box), second, because he's a former terminator sergeant and third, because captains just need to have 'em.
Would you like to have a greenhorn as your leader? ^^

is that the chapter master who normally holds his helmet in a powerfist, it looks like a whole new model with the shield. very cool
Reply
:iconsocmaster:
SOCMaster Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010
That's what I wanted to achieve ^^
That helmet-holding powerfist is cool, no doubt about that, but if you get to see something too often, it gets time for new ideas. That's where the shield came to my mind ^^

I originally planned to give him a helmet, but I thought it would be way too static. Besides, a helmet could never make him look as stoic as he does right now.

this isn't a model that can be bought this way right?
Reply
:iconsocmaster:
SOCMaster Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2010
Why, you can buy this model, but not with the equipment I gave it.

This is the model the conversion is based upon - I used an old metal storm shield and a head from the plastic terminator sprue.

And besides: thanks a lot!

SOCMaster Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2010
I'm pretty sure you must have seen it. It's quite a popular miniature. In fact, I'm quite happy noone so far complained because of the "boring" conversion. ^^
But it really makes me happy my effort is rewarded by rendering it unrecognizable :-D

As a student of english literature, I suppose I ought to be able to come up with a pun or something, but instead of complaining that I can't help but finding a faint trace of irony in this comment of yours, I'd like to say something much more trivial:

First of all.... I really mean what I said.... it is a great model and although it wasn't altered that much, it seems really different.
Second, irony isn't my thing:P althought, I can't find what is troubling you about my comment:P

Don't think I meant to insult you. I just had that weird feeling - I think it might be due to the fact that english isn't my first language. I might just have gotten you wrong. oO

Man könnte darauf kommen, dass du GW-Mitarbeiter bist, wenn du die Ultramarines anpreist. Und dafür würden dich manche sicher flamen ^^

Translation (yes, it is impolite to write comments not everyone can read):
Austrian? No proble, as a German I speak German, too ;-)
One might assume that if you praise Ultramarines, you might be a GW staff member. And some people would surely flame you for that ^^

Nice photo, nice clean paintjob that fits the character. I really like the gold here. Also, the subtle conversion work is delish, as Jamie Oliver would say.
The face is awesome.

The red on the cloak is another very nice part of it. Good job, indeed!

But to be honest, I'm not too sure about the photography. Took me ages and almost 50 shots to get where I wanted to be, and I'm not too happy with the overall result after all.

Well it's 49 more shots than I would have tried ^^ and it is very tricky photographing minis.

Aye, that's true. If there are two things about wargaming, painting and conversions, it's priming and taking pics of the finished piece... It's annoying!

I LOVE the way you painted the backpack. I should have thought of painting the crown and exhausts a different colour than the bottom. Truly epic miniature you have there :D

Thank you! I took an old backpack for inspiration; back in these days, they used to pay 'em like that. It's quite a pity they discontinued the idea.

Aye... They discarded many good ideas. It's the same with the website - back then, you were able to order single sprues and bits. And today? Awesome bits packs? Ha! Who needs half a dozen force weapons?
*sigh*
But that's what we got bitz shops for. ^^
