Purist Ultramarines

Post by SpessMarineGuy » Mon Aug 13, 2018 8:42 pm

I've been throwing these on reddit every now and then, someone recommended I posted them here :)

I want to know what everyone thinks! All feedback is appreciated. Anyone else working on space marine, or 40k armies?

Wow, these are primo figures and the mech is awesome. Are we going to get to see them battle?

Thanks man! Maybe one day, but for now I really just like making armies. I started collecting storm/clone troopers as a kid and never really stopped. I was also obsessed with 40k, but couldn't afford to get into it. Then two years ago the idea for a space marine minifig army hit me, and I realized I'd been preparing for that my entire life. It was a really fun project!

Thanks dude! I spent a lot of effort making them as easily identifiable as possible, while still looking cool :)

Ah! I actually remember seeing these guys on Reddit a while back, they were super cool then and they're even better now. Glad to see you've joined us, welcome to the forums! :studgod:

Also, nice of Red to recruit a new member from our Reddit community, perhaps if other BrikWarrriors have connections in the Reddit/AFOL/MOCpages (is that still a thing?) communities they can do a little more recruiting for us.

I'm happy to be here! Can't wait to look at all the armies!

Does anyone know of any other players that made a space marine army? I have been obsessing over how to translate highly detailed 40k models to mini-figs :lol:

Its not easy! But I really want to see what other people figured out. I'm most proud of my terminators. They're not very accurate, but its honestly the most armor I could manage to fit on a minifig.

I remember someone posting a flickr link to Gray Knights made using nexo armor. Don’t remember the specifics unfortunately.

Yeah I think I saw that one, it was a couple of 40k Characters.

I like RedRover's elves, they make for good eldar.

I love all your armies! Especially the elves and dwarves. I found that on google ages ago and drew a lot of inspiration from it!

Thanks for the invite. At last I have found my people.

Thank you! I have done a few changes to Novium and need to retake some pictures haha!

Maybe your faction and the Imperial Magikstrate could meet on the battlefield someday!

There's lots of 40k inspired stuff on here, who was it again that built 'the Swarm' (Tyranid-esque brick-built monsters)? Also on Flickr, I'd be surprised if you hadn't seen this yet: https://www.flickr.com/photos/37535413@N05/6198948254 :)

The dreadnought looks sick, particularly the usage of the wings on it.

Here's the thread: http://brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=16413

Dienekes' stuff is pretty Warhammer inspired. There's also Ken's Brootalz, which are based on orks.
