I love metal minis. I'm sure it's because I grew up with them, and the look and feel and weight all seem more 'right' than with any other common material. I have grudgingly accepted plastic as the material used by GW. If metal isn't an option, plastic is certainly a better choice than resin, which was just always awful.
The Ultramarines have been getting a big boost lately as I've managed to finish a nice assortment of models that have been half-done or not done for ages.
The Heavy Bike has been done for a long time, but it was pretty lonely (and vulnerable) so now it's got five pals.
This might be my favorite tank now. I rotated the top-piece (requiring a bit of stressful chopping up of the tank underneath) so the turret sits at the back of the tank rather than the front. While certainly less practical, the look references the original Predator model.
Since I just bought Astra Militarum, I decided I'd work on my Rogue Trader Ultramarine army.
After years of rattling around in my bits box, I decided it's really time to build and paint this bike squad. The old "Vincent Black Shadow" bike minis are pretty cool. In fact, they are my favorite of all the Space Marine bike designs, despite being the smallest by far.
Due to a shortage of right arms, two of these bikers are holding bolters. One of them, the sarge, isn't even holding the handlebars (he's that good.)
