While trying to figure out what army to play, i have been reading various 40k stories and a short time ago i encountered the Nick Kyme's Salamanders series. I read the omnibus and found myself hooked, especially on the character of Vulkan He'stan, so imagine my disappointment upon finding the standard issue model for him in the SM codex. Far from a dynamic and powerful warrior it look s more like he is wrapped in a shawl and about to trip over. And his spear, the Spear of Vulkan, capable of even burning ceramite! ...which looks more akin to a rusty poker.
All in all, most disapointing.
So it occurred to me to knock together a model more in keeping with the dynamic and skilled warrior that is Vulkan He'stan in the books.
So here is the prototype build...
So there you are - the first draft. (Sorry for the dubious photo quality!) Although distinctly lacking lizard bits, a cloak, or anything else like that, i hope it still gives you a rough idea of the pose/movement i'm going for.
Any comments, feedback, advice, feedback, etc. welcome as per usual!
