Forge the Character, Ultramarines Captain WIP & Calth

Hey All,

Id like to challenge all the fellow bloggers who stumble across this post to “Forge the Character” over the next month or so. Though I expect to end up being the only one doing it, its quite simple; Make a character and tell us his back story, play a few games with him and describe his feats. It can be anything from a Dreadnought or Tank Captain, to a Helbrute or Eldar Autarch. It doesnt matter what race or what, just to make a character and tell us about him. You dont have to build something new if you dont want to, you could just tell us of the Nid Warrior that solo’d a space marine captain.

I am building something special, here is my Ultramraines captain, the marine to lead the my Ultramarine force.  I have built him from the Solaq captain. He is exactly what I was wanting out of this kit and I cant wait to paint him up. I am still working on what to do for the backpack, and I am a little stumped with it, torn between having one and not having one at all. Perhaps someone from a command squad standing to next to him? As for Name, Exploits and lore background, Ill get to that eventually.

Unboxing of Solaq in the Lead Up to Calth

Originally I wanted to talk about both Solaq and Calth in this post but I might have ranted on about Solaq a bit more than I expected, So I think Ill leave it like this now and do another post on Calth,which will hopefully be a bit smaller.

In the Shadow Force Solaq, you get the following: Contents from the Sternguard box, Vanguard Box and a Land Speeder.  A shiny new Captain and some special rules. Unfortunately this box is not as good as the previous ones that Games Workshop has released, and strange that they then have done something like Calth after it where they’ve got some good savings on what you get.
