Ultramarines: Predator

From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.

I painted these two Predators some time apart from each other.

Ultramarines Predator

The first was done quick in a week ahead of an event (a narrative event at (I think) DunDraCon that involved taking 500 points of “allies” (back in 5th edition before the allies was part of the game) which. In the last game of the event everyone’s allies betrayed them after deployment. Your opponent got to control them. I had Orks as the allies, but wanted to beef up my main force.

Ultramarines Predator (with sponsons)

I think the second was just simple force expansion.

As usual for my marines, the weapons and sponsons are all magnetized, so they can be used in a variety of configuration.

Godfall Superman

This model was my entry for the January Game Kastle Proam. $5 buys you the model for the month. Photographs are due at the end of the month. January’s model was Superman from Knight Model’s DC Universe game.

Because I have to be special, I wasn’t satisfied with any of the options presented in the package (Superman, Bizarro, and Red Sun shields are all included). Instead I went digging through Superman costumes and came up with Godfall.

I added shoulder straps, belt, and built up the boot armor pads with green stuff. The rest is just paint.

Fyreslayers: Battlesmith

This Battlesmith is the last of my backlogged painted Fyreslayers. I shook things up a bit by making his mohawk the red I use as an accent elsewhere, and a silver helm.


The Age of Sigmar escalation league I was participating in collapsed, so this is the last of the Sigmar models I’ve painted. I do have enough on sprue to get to a full (if suboptimal) 2000 points. I hope to return to finish it off sometime.

Fyreslayers: Runemaster

I don’t love the rules for the Runemaster, but I do dig the model. Plus, there are few enough non-character options for the Fyreslayers that I feel I need to load up on the characters.


The Runemaster gets the same slate chip base treatment of the other characters. It makes him pretty tall, but it helps him to stand out from the other infantry.

His hair also helps. The Runemaster felt like an elder, so he gets the obvious white hair to match.
