The Ultramarines at one time were found at every game store, and to be honest, I miss them. They are very rare to see around anymore, but there are some big Ultramarine armies out there. Its just now that Dark Angels are the latest marine codex and were in the starter set, it is a fact that Dark Angels are the new GW poster boys. So taking a look back at the only marine chapter to get their own movie.... Ultramarines are the these for this week's Pics of the Week.
I am expanding upon how I do the Pics of the Week for long time readers, and include models done in the theme of the pics. Perhaps some inspiration will come of it. Artists of course are in the pic file name for credit.
Pics of the Week happen every Tuesday where I share from my Warhammer pic library. I collect these all the time from all over, and sharing them is just fun.
The Ultramarines are considered one of the strongest and most honoured of all the Space Marine Chapters in the Imperium of Man, and were responsible for almost single-handedly holding the Imperium together after the Horus Heresy. Highly disciplined and courageous warriors, the Ultramarines have remained true to the teachings of their Primarch Roboute Guilliman for 10,000 standard years. The Ultramarines were originally the XIII Space Marine Legion before the reforms that initiated the Second Founding and reshaped the Imperium after the Heresy on the orders of Guilliman himself.
