Ultramarines 7th Company
I originally built my Seventh Company army for a GT way back in the early 2000's. I themed the army to be fighting on a volcanic planet, with lava flows on the bases. They are also fighting Necrons, and some of the models have Necron bitz which they are ripping off, or are on their bases. I used chalk dust to weather the models, creating a sooty, volcanic ash look. Another element I added was a number of Ultramarines with Death Watch shoulder pads to add some variety to the army. Later I added models to make the full company, and these just have grey bases without the weathering. Another thing I did was re purpose the first Tyranid Hunters squad I built to be the first squad for the army, which is why they have snow bases. At some point I need to update their bases.
