And now for something completely different …

I was given a Nikon Coolpix S9400 for Christmas so am experimenting with some model photos. When my son was younger, he played Warhammer 40,000 and had a squad of Ultramarines as part of a set that he bought. He preferred Tyranids rather than Ultramarines, so I thought I would paint them for fun. To play the game you need at least two squads plus a headquarters squad, so I decided to shell out the cash to get the minimum to play. The first six photos are the Commander with the five member headquarters squad individually. The next three are the HQ squad plus each of the two tactical squads followed by my little army all together. I never got into playing the game, but enjoyed my attempts at painting these figures. They are basically 28 mm figures used in the table top game Warhammer 40,000. They are painted with Games Workshop paints with some decals that are included with the kits. If you are familiar with the game, they are Ultramarines of the Second Company – HQ squad, II squad and IV squad. A little change in topic and an addition for any sci fi enthusiasts out there.
