Finally decent pictures of the limited Cities of Death Ultramarine Captain I painted a while ago! I really like how the model turned out – I like how the blue banner provides a better contrast to the attached parchment over the ‘Eavy Metal version. I did some minor conversions to the model: I added the backpack from the plastic SM Captain sprue and filled the battle damage on the right leg with Greenstuff as no other of my Ultramarines has visible battle damage. The model isn’t perfect though, the face is a bit weird and some proportions here and there seem a bit off, I can’t say who sculpted this model for sure, as the sculptor wasn’t stated in WD, but I think it’s an early Juan Diaz sculpt. Truth is most of the limited Edition models are either trainee pieces or stuff that wouldn’t have passed quality control otherwise so you often find some minor issues on these models.

I said "ever works" I wanted to say ALWAYS work… sorry, I just woke up.
Very nice indeed. I agree that the banner looks better in blue.
Your painting is so crisp and neat. It's inspiring.
Thanks Garfy 😉

Very good mini and very good paintwork!!!!.
The captain backpack ever works for this kind of mini cause a captain should have a captain backpack (I did the very same with my assault on Black Reach Cap).
