Decision made for me - FORGE WORLD arrives!!

To All,

When I got home there was a package from Forge World sitting on the dinning room table. Let's look at the contents of the box:

Ultramarines Venerable Dreadnought with Mk IV Chainfist and Right Close Combat Arm.

5 Space Marines in MK3 Iron Armour

10 Space Marines in MK5 Heresy Armour (2 five-man packs)

Space Marine Phobos Bolter 8 pack 

Ultramarines Icon pack (I thought the icons would be bigger than they are)

The direction I will be going in for the Colonial GT is:

2) Run the same list but "upgrade" a few of my figures with either better (read - non black reach marines) figures or better paint jobs

This week I plan to paint up the 5 space marines in the MK3 Iron Armor and replace the four marines in this unit:
5 man tactical with razorback with TL lascannon
I  really like the sergeant in this unit. The figure itself is cool - it's an older metal figure - plus I think it is one of my better paint jobs. This is the unit, plus the Razorback, that I will improve on.

The Stout Smurf


  1. Jim has the luxury of daily conversations with me and my experience with this stuff. Knowing him, and knowing what I know about Forgeworld awesomeness, I made him make the investment. I can't wait to see him paint that dread!

  2. Looks great and if everything so far is just the start I cant wait till the next stage. Good luck fellow ultramaine player. and always remember its for the emperor.

  3. Thanks Bump.

    If Ultramarines weren't the bomb they wouldn't be on the cover of every GW box I buy? (At least that's what i tell myself)
