Default Awaken Realms Salamanders Army Showcase - with a scenic diorama for Vulkan!

Hello there from the magma-blasted Nocturne!

Today we present to you the Horus Heresy Salamanders force led by the Primarch Vulkan himself, readying his Legion to depart for the Isstvan V! For some time to every big army we are commissioned to paint we’re doing a diorama for a centerpiece-model of the army. For this project, we’ve created a diorama for Vulkan, depicting himself taming a ferocious Salamander swimming into the Nocturne’s rivers of fire!

We have painted this army at High and Top (particularly the Primarch and his diorama) qualities. It was a really fun project, we find the green and fiery colours to be really contrasting and well suiting each other. And painting coal-black skin was quite a rare opportunity as well.

How do you like our Salamanders army? Did their loyalty to the Emperor is burning as strong as the fires of the surfaces they are standing on?

Oooooh those are pretty. I'd be proud to have an army that looked as good as that!

Stunning work, my only critique is the flames on the spartan, looks a bit too small on such a large model.

Is the second tank an early-pattern Predator?

Regards,

That's a FW Sicaran Battle Tank, it's size is somewhere between the rhino-based tanks (so predator as well) and the Land Raiders.

Weve done recently the other part of the Salamanders army this time with Veterans of the Legion and the Vigilator. Fancy to see them?
