Ultramarines Third Company
Today I have my Ultramarines Third Company to show off. Originally, this was the kernel of my Ultramarines army, but the painting style I had when I started out collecting and playing 40k has changed a lot. A couple of years ago I decided to update and redo this company when the current Space Marines codex was released. It is also the only company to have two of the venerable dreadnought models in it (the only two I have actually); as well as being the first instance where I free handed iconography throughout. I also like the faux script many of the models have on their armor, it was something that was inspired by white dwarf at the time as a way to emphasize the stature of each space marine as a hero in his own right.
