Thanks. Apart from yet having to apply for a job there? msn-wink.gif

 

 

Another small update:

gallery_68666_10081_19868.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_89540.jpg

 

Still needs some more cleaning, but so far I'm rather happy with it.

 

gallery_68666_10081_37011.jpg

 

Can't put my finger on it, but something about the dragon's head feels unfinished...

 

gallery_68666_10081_166368.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_99611.jpg

 

Rivets and flames. Now to figure out what to do with the greaves.

 

gallery_68666_10081_48450.jpg

 

Needs some more cleaning and could do with a few more small details.

 

C&C welcome.

I like how much detail you can get in your greenstuff.

What is that bit in front of the mouth on the serpent?

@Black Cohort

 

Thanks. Well, it's supposed to be fire... might have to rework that.

 

 

Progress continues ever so slowly:

 

gallery_68666_10081_57057.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_55238.jpg

 

Only some small changes, mainly cleaning up the body.

 

gallery_68666_10081_53713.jpg

 

Still not quite happy with the head... maybe a small horn on the nose, otherwise i might have to make some bigger changes.

 

gallery_68666_10081_67391.jpg

 

Stil not quite right...

 

gallery_68666_10081_44511.jpg

 

On the knee will be the Firedrake's icon, on the greave is an experiment I have some ideas for. I'll have to see which one I can realise.

 

C&C welcome as always.

Brother, you work with the finest green is exceptional. It looks like fire from the serpents mouth btw. I think paint will help the pop.

This one took quite a few attempts, but the latest went surprisingly smooth. I'm quite happy with it, not least because  the outline is reminiscent of the Salamanders pre-primarch legion symbol.

 

gallery_68666_10081_96564.jpg

 

Small changes at the dragons head, I might have to bulk up its body a bit.

 

gallery_68666_10081_294931.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_73239.jpg

 

The anvil still needs some more work, the hammer will be crossed with something else, currently I'm thinking maybe a sword or some tongs. A second hammer would probably require me to alter the angle at which it is tilted, that's an option in case my other ideas don't work.

 

 

C&C welcome.

Thanks. Mature or not, that comment made me smile smile.png

 

 

For those wondering what Firepower, Brother SP and Quixus are referencing look here (and then read that thread if you haven't already, or just look at Greyall's Deviantart gallery)

 

 

A tiny bit of progress:

 

gallery_68666_10081_248025.jpg

 

Bulked the body a bit up.

 

gallery_68666_10081_130988.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_153963.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_71063.jpg

 

Still needs some cleaning and the Firedrake symbol needs some more work.

gallery_68666_10081_115411.jpg

Yes, I'm aware it resembles the Stormcast Eternals default symbol.

This is all fantastic.  Totally excellent GS work. Can't wait to see more of your skills.

 

I think the filigree on the greave can work, but It might look out of place if it's not painted gold, IMO.  Salamanders are artisans, no reason they can't be artsy.

@Ovidius Incertus

 

Thank you. My main concern was that the filigree wouldn't fit in aestheticaly with the rest of the ornaments I added, but you are probably right that the paintjob will tie that together if done right.

 

@Ch@oZ

 

Thanks.

 

@War Angel

 

Patience and practice, mostly. The right tools help a lot.

 

 

Another small(ish) update:

 

gallery_68666_10081_40031.jpg

gallery_68666_10081_49156.jpg

 

Inspired by the Salamanders Terminator from Deathwatch: Overkill.

 

gallery_68666_10081_47745.jpg

 

This one came out a bit big, not yet sure if I'll keep it or redo it a bit smaller. In either case it isn't finished yet.

 

gallery_68666_10081_154086.jpg

 

Just the foundation for later work so far.

 

gallery_68666_10081_86675.jpg

 

Another foundation. Aside from that I added a bit of detail to the Firedrake insignia (the eyes and the scales) and bulked up the nose a bit.

 

gallery_68666_10081_87336.jpg

 

Added a bit of detail to the dragonhead, mainly the eyes.

 

Comments and Critique welcome as always.

The next experiment with ornamentaion, I think it still needs some work.

 

gallery_68666_10081_94584.jpg

 

I'll probably add some texture to the scales, though I would love to hear some opinions on that.

A bit more ornamentation.

gallery_68666_10081_57038.jpg

 

Anyone got a suggestion what to write on the scroll?

 

gallery_68666_10081_22313.jpg

 

Main difference so far between this and the last one are the teeth.

 

gallery_68666_10081_29725.jpg

The discs will get more details later on, though I have yet to decide what exactly. So if you have a suggestion, now would be a good time to voice it.
