Default My Salamander WIP

Okay so this is my first WIP so bear with me. I plan on finishing a 2000 point army of salamanders. I don't really have a deadline, I just want to get them done. So enough talking, here's what I got so far.

This my tactical squad, from AOBR

This is my assault squad, it is currently being redone as Sallies. It was Black Templars.


My one termie.

Two out of three models that are actually painted




And this is my techmarine. He is the pride and joy of my army so far, as I really liked the way he came out.
Well that's all so far. I'm expecting 10 termies, a captain, and two dreads in the post. So as soon as those come in I'll update. Well wish me luck.

Nice work, the two finished models look pretty cool, I think we neeed a better pic of the Techmarine though, bit hard to pick out his details.

What sort of force are you going for?

Thanks reaper. Sorry about the pics. I plan on doing a drop pod force, or a rhino rush. Not too sure yet.

Okay so it's been half of forever since I last did anything to my sallies.(damn school and life gets in the way) but I give you now some updates.
This is my converted dreadnaught.



For the base I used bullet rounds that I dug out of the earth.
Here is just a stock dread.

And some termies

This is just another marine I painted up.

This is my termie I posted earlier just painted


This is my commander in termie armour. He's missing his cloak and head.duh




Well thats all for now, I hope I'll actually get some stuff done, and not let this thread just sit here. Please C&C is always welcomed. Thanks

Are the eye lenses yellow in the Dex scheme?

Yellow is pretty hard to do as a gem effect, red might work well and is easier to do.

Nice work so far the green is good and rich too.

Umm I think the eyes are yellow in the dex. But yeah I had a hard time with the yellow eyes. However, they are yet to be finished,I need to add the "gem" process with a lighter yellow, followed by white. But thanks.

Thank you Liber as well.

Pretty solid green, looks nice and crisp on those Tacticals - I don't know exactly what it is, but I'm afraid I like those better than the others - maybe it's just because the pic of them is slightly better quality, for whatever reason. Overall, I really like them though.

Can't wait to see the finished Dreads.

Salamanders have red eyes nowadays; but it's your army m8, you paint them as you please

Doing Sally's too (my WIP is in here too, somewhere), so glad to find some inspiration here :p
Love the pose on your commander! Are those the shoulders from forgeworld?

Keep up the good job man!
