really nice work, here. I love your take on vulcan (the pose on the GW model really irks me) and I envy your collection of FW and chapterhouse bits

Thanks!

Not my sculpt of Vulkan, I bought it from a mysterious Russian on eBay

I too am not a fan of the GW model, but love this one!

Nothing new to show, just complaining that Land Raiders are BIG - also, Snot green takes at least 2 coats to cover the base coat of Orkhide shade. Sigh.

Yay! Another Salamanders player! I already LOVE your painting.

Got a bit disheartened by how big the LR is and how slowly I was progressing, so I ground to a halt.

Hoping to re-motivate myself with a post on here...

Here's the WIP so far:



Next up is going to be a set of Terminators - I plan to use the FW Tartaros models:



And though I haven't bought them yet, I did get the weapons I wanted via bits sellers:



Now, I had an idea for these - I thought the shields would be a bit dull in green, but then I remembered the OLD Salamanders colour scheme:



So my plan is to use that yellow/black camo scheme on the shields - I think it might look pretty cool

Well, that particular self-motivation didn't work, but now 3 months down the line I have got stuck in again and the LR is progressing.

Hope to finish it soon, will then post pics

Finally finished all the green bits of the LR last night! That is a weight off my mind

Done about 50% of the "bling" too - I may actually finish this soon - amazing

Love the land raider and hestan If you can do the shields like that without them looking garish then i would do it, if not i wouldn't as it just wouldn't look right with the rest of your army. ALthough i don't doubt your painting skills, best of luck

Managed to get my brushes out for the 2nd night in a row, which is quite some achievement for me in the last 6 months. Now the "bling" is progressing well.

I plan to do one as a prototype and see how it looks. Aiming for a fairly orangey yellow, so hopefully won't be too bright...

Forgot to mention that this takes me to 950 points of painted models, and I am now out of Salamanders models to paint.

I will order the Terminators from Forge World soon, but might paint some Sedition Wars minis while I wait...

Well, my Sedition Wars Kickstarter box arrived, and I have decided that I should paint all the contents of that.

Going for a pretty quick paint style, and so far I have already managed 12 of the Strain, which is world record pace for me

Just a v simple base coat and Devlan Miracle wash, I am pleased with the results.

On the Dreadnought shoulder the salamander symbol, Is that Forgeworld brass etching?

Yes, it is, I've also used other brass symbols on the Land Raider's doors.

I haven't been in a painting mood for a few months

But I have got started again - I'm working on the Techmarine for my Thunderfire Cannon!

Pics when he's finished.

I'm guessing your TFC was a metal one. I read stories of how infuriating is to assemble that model.

Lovely tech-marine, I really like that Obsidian-like blade. I'm hoping with so many months away you are ready and pumped for more Salamanders action!

Yes, metal. So many of the bits just plain didn't fit it was painful. I have it together, but it's not perfect...

Thanks for your kind words on the Techmarine - Yes, I am hoping to keep up the painting momentum this time

The Thunderfire Cannon is complete:



You may notice that there are a couple of bits missing, this is because it was 2nd hand from eBay Thankfully I still had enough bits to make it usable, just the bottom recoil thingy and the 2 rear feet are absent...

PS I have ordered my FW Terminators!

Terminators arrived! However only 1 or 2 of the torsos are usable, the rest have horrible mould slip :(

FW are going to send me replacements, but I can only get 1 or 2 assembled and painted for now...


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Well, the 2nd torso wasn't worth using, so I just have the one assembled:



So I can get him painted up while I wait for the replacements.
