Chris' Awesome, trophy-winning Ultra Marine Bikers!

Old School here,

I just wanted to take a minute to recognize Chris and his Ultra Marine biker army. It won him a trophy in a tournament at the Fortress in East Lansing and he has to be one of the coolest gamers in our area from his laid back attitude to the styles of armies he runs and that is why he is our Artist of the Week! The champ above is beautiful and if you look close it has plenty of freehand. Take a look below at some of his work and let us know what you think. Chris, let's here about your armies from the horse's mouth if you are out there! Enjoy the pics.
The bases he uses are actually made with broken tiles from the hardware store!


He used a lot of Ravenwing bits to augment his army and it has a really cool theme because of it!





C'Mon, who doesn't love the Dakka Dread?


This predator has a lot of freehand and it honestly was one of the things that first drew my attention to his army when he started hanging out at the store.







And here is his up and coming Guard army!

  1. Hey! Thanks for the nice comments old school and for the spot light! I'm more than happy to send works in progress or add some thoughts. I'm currently working on my rough riders and have some pictures I can send you. I looked around the blog and could only find DarkFutureGames@gmail.com to send anything too.

    I have to say I've never seen any of my models as big as these pictures before! If anyone has any questions feel free to email me. I just watched all of misterjustin's videos and I'm going to dig up my pastels tomorrow!

    I'm busy with school now so my output will be slowed from the "Meth" Level that capt obvious thinks it's at to more of a "adderall" level.

    Happy gaming!

  2. Those are some good lookin' Ultras. How many bikes are there? How big of force does he play with these models?

    I've never really looked into an all-bike army as a viable option (because of cost), but it doesn't seem like there are all that many bikes there... maybe it is doable after all...?

  6. I'll never live that down, will I?

    However, if you don't start painting more mini's I'll start spreading rumors that you paid for it. (no your mom jokes, please)

    Its either you ass, Erics ass or Jake's ass. Judging by the general skinney-ness of it, I'd say its yours.
