Dead Ultramarine by warp-zero Dead Ultramarine by warp-zero
Alright....the secret is out. I play Warhammer 40,000. Just when you probably thought my geek levels could not rise any higher huh?

Anyways, here's a piece of terrain I built. Its some jungle terrain with a pool of water in the middle. Laying in the pool is a dead Space Marine. I wanted it to look like he had died there a long time ago. What was his story? Why did he die alone? Who shot him? Who knows?

Well, whatever the story is, I'm sure the Eldar passing through don't care. If they had any thoughts on the matter, it would be thoughts of mild joy in knowing that there is one less Marine running around.

Oh, and yeah, the Saim-Hann Eldar Guardians in the pic are painted by me as well. Its my main army at the moment.

If the Marine died a long time ago this could be one of the Eldar Maiden worlds. 

Edit: There is precedent for the Imperium trying to colonize those worlds. If they knew Eldar were on the planet the Astartes would be a natural choice to try and take it.

The armor can still be salvaged.

Quite the contrary, playing Warhammer 40k increases your manly level.

Nice piece of terrain. One less ignorant Mon-Keigh!

Thats wicked.. Poor marine :< +Fav!
Nightbringer24 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2009
I don't give a shit that it's an Ultramarine. Their glory hogs. If it was someone like Black Templars or Dark Angels, I'd be upset.
Nice terrain btw.
Dylaren Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009
Yeah it wouldn't be them thought. A Templar or a Dark Angel would have killed the Xeno properly ;)
davidmn Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
That is wicked! RIP marine. And there is nothing wrong with playing warhammer! be proud! Do you play eldar?
dandomrassed Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2009
Love it! Question though. Where did you get the skull for the space marine? I don't recognize it from any models i've seen. Of course i'm still a relative new comer to the Warhammer 40k universe myself, so it may just be my in-experience.
Go Space Marines and Necrons!

Very nice in every respect.
You use a blue or purple was on the Guardian armour? I like the effect and may use it myself.
alterecho Featured By Owner May 5, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
from what I've heard about space marines, he could still probably tear up those guardians :). Sweet piece dude
Sebbythefreak Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2008  Professional Filmographer
Well judging by the humongous gaping holes in his armor, I think it's a safe bet to say he was a t the wrong end of alot of bolter fire...

I bet he was taking too long while taking a dump in that puddle and the rest of his squad became conviced he was a follower of nurgle and just executed him as a fire line xD

My brother won't be happy at seeing this - he collects Ultramarines and i'm an eldar collector xD
And warhammer is far from geekish, in my opinion.
Great modelling and painting skills anyway :)
SatanicRetribution Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2008
Wow, nice Ultramarine. He got what he deserved, the pompous bastard! Nice paint job on your models.

Now THATS an awesome conversion!
NickAlmand Featured By Owner May 7, 2007
Ooooh, awesome! I always wanted to get into WarHammer, but I never had the guts to just go ahead and do it. This terrain is excellent, man! The Ultramarine's paint job is seriously quality, with the dirt and scuffs. ^^ Not sure what else to say, but sweet!
ColonelYeo Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Very nice! The battle damage looks great...ravaged but not over the top. I play warhammer too, but I do the fantasy game. (Thinking of 40K later on though.) Only thing I think could make this look even better would be to have darkened the bottom of the purity seal parchment. Make it look like the water soaked in. maybe even add a creeping plant starting to grow over him...depending on how long he's been there.
