Ultramarines Primaris Lieutenant Horridus is complete!

The title says it all really. I got a bit excited painting this mini and as such Lt. Horridus kind of left his two subordinate assault intercessors in the dust. They're still in the paint queue though and I hope to finish them sometime in the next week or so. Anyways enough rambling, here he is:

Once again I loathe whomever it was that decided on the helmet stripes to visually identify a Lieutenant. 

I'm still fond of the urban camo, though as always it's effectiveness is suspect at best. 

Originally he was going to be a Captain, armed with the relic version of the master crafted auto bolt rifle. Oh well, this still looks better than the bolt rifles used by the other lieutenants. 

Again, note non-standard Astartes Chainsword, suck it primaris purists! I started scribbling in the margins of the Codex Astartes just as soon as I started applying camo! 

I'm quite certain that those scribbles on his pauldron banner say something heroic.

I like him! Weirdly enough, I will eventually be painting mine as Ultramarines 3rd co. as well. He is definitely, still, the best Primaris Lt.

Thanks! Will be interesting to see the two of them side-by-side once yours is finished. I always enjoy seeing folks' different takes on identical minis.

He is defo one of my favourite Lt sculpts, and a great weapon substitute you chose. And if Horridus is indeed a namesake in honour of me and WeeMen then I bow in gratitude mate

I've checked and the high gothic on his shoulders is a recipe for Key Lime Pie.

@Siph: Yes sir it is, in recognition of your help for both myself & Neverness each getting one of these minis for far less than if we were to have bought them here stateside!

@Zzzzzz: lol!
