Ultramarine in MKVI Power Armour

Here is an Ultramarine in MKVI power armour from the Horus Heresy Age of Darkness boxset.

You’ll notice that the roman numerals on the right knee are ‘XX’. This was supposed to represent a company number, not the legion number, but lots of people were thinking this was Alpha Legion instead of Ultramarines, so I have since changed this to ‘XIII’.

These ‘beaky’ marines are really a pleasure to paint. They look great and you can paint them to a fairly high standard quite quickly.
