Yonder stuff is old stuff, yonder Potato will be updating the OP to be more relevant soon.
This is an Eighteenth Legion blog, with their attendant Auxilia support.
Hello all. I've been lurking for several years now and have been on/off painting throughout that time. I've had a small blog on another forum where I've hopped between projects here and there, from serious tabletop armies to amusing models (like my Imperialsaur).
However I've always been impressed with the quality of craft shown in this forum, so I thought I'd log the progress of my Salamanders force, for help & hints.
Basically after a large spree at Games Day, plus buying the Strike Force from the latest SM releases plus bits and bobs, I have counted and realise I have 84 Space Marines plus a company strength compliment of vehicles, aircraft and dreadnoughts. So I sworn to Vulkan that I will not touch another miniature till my battle-company is...battle ready!
I'm trying to do this as properly as I can, so I will be whipping up full fluff for each unit. The ultimate aim is to make a little diary of batreps to mark the history of my company, though I'm not sure how I'll explain non-stop defeats in a fluff-appropriate manner xD
But anyways, below is my initial fluff-inspired Company list. I know it's not exactly Codex standard but hey ho it's Salamanders they didn't exactly jump at the Codex when Guilliman introduced it.
Time-wise they are set to be post-Heresy, pre-Scouring & pre-Codex. This is to allow me using newer armour variants, such as the 2 Tac squads which will be sporting Aquila armour. Colour scheme is White Dwarf Green (Warpstone Green primarily) rather than FW's ... khaki? I would have preferred the Khaki but to be frank I think both look vibrant and colourful so I'm not bothered.
Anyways, without further rambling, my company list:
Captain Antellas the Scaled
Command Squad (Apothecary, Master of Signal, Company Champion and Standard Bearer)
Command Squad (Apothecary, Standard Bearer, Veteran Seargent, Company Champion, Veteran Seargent)
Woe-makers of Geryon (10 Tartaros Terminators)
Wings of Vulkan - 5 Veteran Assault Marines
Hammers of Nocturne - 5 Veteran Marines
Venerable-Ancient Persellan (Contemptor Dreadnought)
Venerable Dryomas (MkIV Dreadnought)
Shields of Hesiod - 10 Tactical Marines
Kab'ir's Fortune - 10 Tactical Marines (Missile launchers)
Fiery Ruin - 10 Tactical Marines (Special Weapons)
The Blackened Scales - 10 Tactical Marin+5es (Multi-melta/Heavy flamers)
Unblinking Drakes - Scout Squad (Sniper rifles)
Ash Riders - 3 Outriders (Plasma blastguns)
Plain-stalkers - 5 Assault Marines
Promethean Widsom - Deimos-pattern Predator Infernus (Flamestorm cannon)
Molten Fury - Deimos-pattern Predator Infernus (Magnamelta cannon)
Traitor's Absolution - Fire Raptor
Venomous Spite - Razorback (Lascannon)
Draken Iron - Razorback (Heavy Bolter)
Vulkan's Roar - Vindicator
Rhy-tan's Peace - Rhino
First screens don't encompass the entire company obviously, I haven't even opened the Strike Force. I am getting the FW models done first (including a non-assembled Fire Raptor xD) before I touch them + the veteran boxes.
Anyways pics below and all comments/questions welcome!
