Current progress on Veteran Sergeant Valdor and his first two squad mates. The two tacticals have been glazed with Guilliman Blue. Valdor hasn't had that done. Not sure which style I like best yet!

Darker in reality than they look here. Had to use the flash since it's dark. Will get some natural light photos up once more of the squad are done.

All three need the final details doing to them clearly.

So it begins

"We are the slayers of kings, the destroyers of worlds, bringers of ruination and death in all its forms. These things we do in the name of the Emperor and in the defence of Mankind. Let none stay our wrath." 

 Captain Cato Sicarius, Ultramarines 2nd Company

From the humble beginnings of this post a single squad will grow into a company and then beyond.

These guys mark my first foray into Ultramarines and my first dabbling in Codex Marines since I began playing 40k some 5 years ago. With the new codex just around the corner, my long held ambition of creating an Ultramarines army is finally coming to light.

These little guys will form Squad Vandar - Also known as "The Victors".

 Squad Vandor

Titus Terentius

Apparently they are noted for having the youngest recipient of an Iron Halo. This was awarded to Veteran Sergeant Vandar for tactical brilliance during the Tamari Rebellions in 929.M41.

And so it begins
