Which is sad, I liked the older Salamanders. An entire chapter of Samuel L. Jackson!

Hopefully I'll have a bunch more units finished off by the end of the month. Depends how crazy things get around here.
these guys look great.
How do you do your green? I'm curious
Primed chaos black, based Dark Angels Green, then Snot Green, with Scorpion Green highlights. I like how the different layers bring out the definition of the green.

*talks to self about starting salamanders*
A revolution never come with a warning [url=http://minibattles.co.cc/][img=http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/jj27/stupid-simon/sig-8.jpg][/url] These humans, their imaginations are strong. Kill a thousand men and they will hate you. Kill a million men and they will queue to face you. But kill a single man and they will see monsters and devils in every shadow. Kill a dozen men and they will scream and wail in the night, and they shall feel not hatred, but fear.

3rd tactical squad. Needs basing and a few touchups. Not great job since the primer gunked them up =/
AoBR Terminators. Note the power fists. I'm going to try and do all PF and T.Hammers with this motif

Yeah. He comes separate pieces with body, head, Gauntlet of the Forge, and his right hand with the Spear of Vulkan.
out of curiosity is that head a seperate bit for vulkan hestan?
Highlights will come soon. I've been trying to finish everything I need for the upcoming tourny at tabletop quality. I'm going to add all the highlights to everyone in one go. And I quite like the chainsword and banner too, thanks
Due what happened to highlights?
The best thing in your army (for me) has to be either the molten lava chainsword for that sergeant you did or the banner on tu'shan. It really look's like it's glowing, great job!!!
Thank you kindly

Here's my newest addition to my army, my Land Raider Redeemer. This has been something I've been looking forward to having ever since I've started my army, even more so since my acquisition of T.Hammer Terminators. Everyone at my LGS will be surprised since I never field terminators, and they've no clue I've been working on this project.
B&C PLC update #3 & completion will be in within the next week.

"hey look sarge, we are in a really noisy tank, but we can snaek up on these guys cuz they are looking the other way and cuz wez red and red wunz go fsaterrr.... waaagghhhh"

And here's each part of my oath, together.
Very close to the deadline, but I was able to pull it off! Now onto the next project!

Also presenting his battle brother Venerable Nal'zar, also with his Ironclad chassis.
I plan on continuing work to complete my vow with the addition of my predator soon.
Posted 04 March 2012 - 05:57 PM
Good luck with the vow, I just have a contemptor to paint then my Salamanders vow is complete...
Posted 05 March 2012 - 01:22 PM
Good luck on the Contemptor, it's a great looking model. As for my vow, the Anvil of Time is going to press me sorely this month but I shall persevere.

I tried painting some scales, but I feel it came out looking more like camouflage. I'll improve it next time by trying to space them closer together and being a little more selective on the brighter colors. Not a bad first attempt though.
Lots of heat radiating off of the lascannons was another attempt at something new. I discovered wet-blending is difficult to do well.
Also I did lots of highlighting, which is something lots of my vehicles are lacking.
To really make the autocannon stand out I put the drake's head on the end and freehanded the flames. I tried a different way to painting the flame this time.
The sponsons are also magnatized, so if I want to paint up and switch out for heavy bolters in the future that option is open to me.
Let me know what you think. Always love comments and advice, since I usually will try suggestions for improvement on my upcoming projects. Speaking of which, with the pred done I will now be working on my 7 sternguard and 3 veteran sergeants to finish off my LPC vow. Lots to do, but I will succeed!

If you try varying the size of the scales more, and make it more uneven, it might come out less like camo.. I like the idea!
The flames along the barrel came out nice, like the layering of several fires! I'd suggest doing the smoke launchers in metal to break up the green a little when you look at it from straight ahead.
All in all a very sweet looking tank! Good job brother!

*plasma pistol whines as it charges* I dunno, you tell me. Did I st-st-stutter?
Posted 15 March 2012 - 01:32 AM
I'll try to tighten up the scales a bit next time I do them. But I'm really glad you each like the flames. I've practiced my freehand flame-work a lot over the last 3 years.
It's funny actually. I usually like ice-world things and dislike flames painted on stuff. However, with 40k I dislike Space Wolves and love my Salamanders so much that actually I've become decent at painting flames. Who knew?
