As a part of my shattered legions-themed 40k project, I’ve started working on Salamanders. Raven guard is in another thread. Decided on paintscheme and now it’s forward. First out is some tactical marines.

Thank you! I’m thinking about darkening the green with a layer of nulnoil, but I’m not sure. Don’t want to ruin a painted model...

I’m happy you said that because I’m moving towards a full 5-man squad at a terrifying pace. Servitor-mode.

Continuing the good work there, I think the wash could be a good idea, I've seen a few darker Salamander forces and really preferred the look.

I have my moments 😀 you think they look good for tabletop? Eyelenses and shoulder insignia is left to do and some minor tweaks like more flames and purity seals and such

Once the lenses, flames and shoulders are done, I'd definitely be happy playing with those on the other side of the field. The thin rims on the MKIV pads could look nice done in gold, I think it would work nicely with the black and pick out the edges.

Great, thank you! A question; i read somewhere that salamanders dont show squaddesignation (arrow for Tactical etc) they instead have a Flame-icon and squad number?

Unfortunately I'm not overly wise on the Salamanders, but I've also heard their markings are non-standard.

Yup. That’s basically what it says in the new codex. :)

Excellent painting skills, would love to hear what your method for painting flames is, if you're willing to post it.

 

I'm another person who prefers to go for a darker, richer, shade of green for their Salamanders. But it's one of the things I love about this chapter is that people vary a lot in their view of the shade of green, and we get to enjoy a lot of variety but still consistency within our little corner of the hobby.

 

All of it looks great man!

Thanks alot man! Of course! I begin outlining the flames with khorne red (khornered is a little more subtle than mephiston I think) then painting the whole flames with khorne, after that I’m painting smaller flame-shapes with wild rider red and last of all small flame shapes with yellow. I’m making sure the paint doesn’t dry before changing Colour so there’s a little wet blending going on 😀

Yeah I hear you, I think my green is a little too bright for my liking...either I repaint the green or try to darken it a bit with nuln oil...haven’t decided yet
