Ulthwe Family Photo

It's been a long time since I did one of these, a single photo of my whole craftworld army:

This shot realistically covers over 25 years of collecting.  Ulthwe has kept along with me through a lot in my life, including a bout with cancer in which I sold off nearly all my models to help pay my medical bills.

Other units have been retired like the original Eldrad, but the first model I ever purchased is still there and still used.

Here's the inventory of the photo:
50 Guardian Defenders with 5 weapon platforms
24 Storm Guardians
10 Howling Banshees
Jain Zar
10 Striking Scorpions
8 Rangers
8 Warp Spiders

I highly recommend people have a bit of fun and put their largest army out all at once and see how massive your collection has grown.  One day I'd love to use the force all at once, though I doubt I'll ever be able to.


  1. This is a thing of absolute beauty! I've just come back to the hobby for the first time since 2001 and am revitalising my Ulthwe, it's bringing me a lot of joy! Out of interest what was your first model? I bought 3 striking scorpions in 1997!

    1. Hi Mungo, thanks! My first models were a two pack of warlocks and a two pack of Striking Scorpions back in second edition. The second edition scorpions were the models that brought me into the game. Unfortunately back in 2004 I had a serious illness and had to sell off the bulk of my army, but I do still have one of the warlocks.
