Old Stuff Wednesday: Ultramarine Captain (Now OOP)

This is an old one, about 2002 for me.  I picked it up back then because I liked the Roman Centurion overtones.  I was probably the first time that I really tried to do some blending.
GW's spacemarines have really come a long ways since these OOP metals.
Ah the power gladius.  I believe that I converted the sword as the gladius was so short.

  2. Yea...its a cool old Marine. I think this is one of the pieces that really got me to thinking about how to paint. Thanks for the kind words.

  3. I had this guy in my painting queue a few years ago. This post reminded me that I really need to finish him. BTW, nothing says old school, '90s old school particularly, like red weapons! :)
