Here is a pair of Salamanders Ironclad Dreadnoughts. I tried to make them each unique from one another.

What do you think?







Edit: Well, I put this guy up on Cool Mini. Here's a link if you care to vote, or if you just want to see how he's doing.

They're a little bit unique, but not too unique. Once again, I really like your salamanders minis. Are they for an army you'll be using or for a client?

I like the battle damage on the models, I'll be doing something like that on my Khador models. +rep

The green is P3 Ordic Olive layered up with varying amounts of P3 Menoth White Base in it. That's an Olive Green highlighted with a Bone White color.

The Salamanders all belong to a client of mine. Alas, none of them are with me right now, although I'll probably have another batch of them soon.

They're nice Odin, especially since you've used P3 colours, which to my thinking are better than a lot of the citadel range.

You know, I find it strange how the two lines have been specializing recently. Citadel has been pushing itself as the learn to paint line (with the washes and foundations lines) while P3 totes itself as a great line for advanced painters (using dark inks that mix well with paints or need to be thinned down).

I've actually noticed the tutorials from No Quarter have gotten more advanced, while the White Dwarf tutorials really never got past basic color recipes.

Anyway, the real reason I used P3 paints on this guy was because they had the color that I wanted. There are some subtle advantages to the paint line, but a lot of it is simply color selection.

Interesting that you say that, as I find the P3 colours easier to use, and I'm never going to be a great painter. Anyway where'd you buy them from?

You know, P3 paints have more pigment in them, so they're often easier to thin down and use.

I got most of mine from a local game store, although I've picked up a few online. I don't know a place you could get them in Great Britain, though.
