We've got something on the radar sir. Something old.

So, here we have my first objective marker for the army. The lost ancient wargear of Brother Ucoh.

The idea I was going for here was that the 1st company stumbled upon the remains of an old venerable brother, lost in battle. I assumed that this would be something that wished to retrieve.

With my objective markers I had an interesting dilemma: just what would the 1st company of the Thunderbirds be going after. Obviously things they considered important. I wasn't going to make the objectives things they were attempting to kill, but rather, the reason they were mounting for battle. 

I've continued the canyon sandstone look here. The metal, however I wanted to look very old. I threw more browns on it than I do for the actual terminators. If you look, the left eye has been clawed out. I imagine that the fatal blow was some incredibly powerful attack that glanced from his shield and into his eye. Something that could have brought the venerable Ucoh down. Something like a point blank melta shot or a desperate swipe from a broodlord. 

So there you have it. One objective down. I've got another one WIP. It's my Eddie Izzard objective.
