It's been approximately one million years since I've uploaded anything, for which I apologise! Moving to Germany has been hectic enough without having to wait six whole months for my belongings to arrive after me, which meant that by the time I was able to paint again I've been a little out of practice. Since I wanted to get my arm back in, I opted to start with something clean, clear and obvious, and thus an Ultramarine seemed the logical choice.
I followed the advice of the excellent Mr Duncan Rhodes on WarhammerTV's Youtube account, which I thoroughly recommend checking out for yourself. The videos are packed with advice for just about anything you can conceive of painting, and there's a run of daily tips coming out that touch on small details and little things to make miniatures pop. Cool stuff, and the Ultramarines guide is what I followed almost to the letter to get this dude finished!
All he needs now is a name. I'm thinking Jacius, owing to the Ultramarines' typically Roman-inspired naming convention, but I'm not sure how well that one scans. It'd definitely fit on his banner, at the very least!
