Today I’m showing the new Ultramarine Centurions Assault Squad that I picked up a few weeks ago. I must say that after looking at Garfys post on how he converted the model, I wish I did the same. The models as they come are fairly static looking. I would have really of liked the option to have a bit more variety in the poses. So hats off to Garfy for doing this so well. I painted them using the same colours that Septembers White Dwarf magazine used in a tutorial. I actually really liked using GW’s colours as the blue’s they produce are very vibrant. Normally I always tend to use mainly Vallejo paints, so the change was nice. Overall I’m a bit 50/50 with whether I like the models or not. I think if they are converted to be a bit less static they look nice. I’m currently in awe of the some of the new Forge World models that were being released at Games Day last Sunday in the UK. What do you guys think about the new Centurions?
Hey cheers Garfy 🙂 I'm still with your marines 🙂
Wow…the paint job you have created is stunning!
I like these best of all your work!
Really, really nice.
These are great, love the weathering!
Unfortunately, you can't polish a turd
Well I think TeN has done a great job of taking said turd and rolling it in glitter to make it look fabulous.
I think that's funny because TEN has indeedly polished said turd.

First of all I gotta say I LOVE the paintjob on these, I think they look stunning. The blue especially is amazing and really makes me think of the more recent illustrations I've seen of Ultramarines on book covers, etc.
As for the Centurions themselves, I won't ever be buying any. I don't game, and I personally can't stand the concept behind the models! For me they stand on the toes of Terminators way too much and make them conceptually redundant. I would have rather seen maybe a new Dreadnaught variant or maybe a type of robot for Techmarines to use.
Hi. Amazing work as ever!
Please can you advise on the name of the Blue that was used to paint these. Thanks!

These look really cool. They have a nice grim-dark feel to them. I've been working on mine recently, I''m going to drool over these pictures a little longer to inspire me some more 🙂
