Gauntlet of Flame

      I started with the scouts and there's a problem. Need help! What color should I paint the pants? I was thinking of grey but don't know if it's going to look cool. If you have some time, it would be nice if you give me a suggestion. Generally, I'm really happy with those models. They look quite original and have a nice salamander aspect. Especially the Serg is the crown jewel of the unit, with all his war gear. It will be a pleasure to paint them.


Spider webed temple

     I have a little guessing game for you. Here it goes.
An HQ of what army will be standing on this base ?

Hint: He wears a hood ;p

Bearers of The Flame

     Another five guys done. I'm getting there. I didn't paint any flames on the legs because I want to have a difference between both squads. Also I did a freehand on the flamer's head. There is no way that you won't notice where the special weapon in your squad is. I'm quite happy with the flames on his face. The Sergeant wasn't forgotten as well and he has some lizard scales painted on his Power Fist. Another five guys and I'm done with the tacticals. After that I'll get my hands on scouts or transports. How do you like them ? ^^

Pimp my rhino

     I finished the preshading on the transports. Now they are ready for some brush action. I was thinking of all the weathering I need to do and it occurred to me that rain is not a common thing on Nocturne. So now I'm thinking I would have to do some heat corrosion from the lava and great temperatures. For the life of mine I couldn't think of a way how to paint such a thing. So I went straight to Google, uncle Google knows all. I found some notes of  what high temperature corrosion really is and what it looks like. It's this first picture, after seeing this I thought that it wouldn't look nice on the vehicle.

    The final conclusion is that I will just go with ordinary scratches and dirty, ash-grey stains because it always looks quite well.

Protectors of Nocturne

     I present to you finished 1st squad of my Salamander Marines. Those guys have been a pleasure to paint. Still have ten more so got some more painting goodness ahead of me. I feel that this army will present itself really well on the table. I hope I will manage to sell it all in one piece. It would be a shame to see it spread out squad by squad around the world. Anyway, if you are interested in this project right now and want to make it your own you can give me a shout and we'll talk :). Otherwise if you could refer this project to your friends, it would be awesome.

Okay I'm off, need to get some sleep,
Cya tomorrow

Flaming pants

      Still a lot to be done on these guys but I just wanted to give you a second glance on how I'm going to paint my troops. The 1st squad of  five space marines with a Sergeant will accompany Vulkan in a Razorback. I wanted to give them something extra. That's why they have flames on their legs. The rest will only have this feature on their right shoulders. I still need to add salamander symbol on the left ones, finish up eyes, purity seals and a bunch of other stuff. This project will consume more time that I expected but I'll do my best to have it done as soon as possible.

Don't step on the lava

      So I've started painting Salamanders and I'm happy with my results so far. I'm really excited about how it's going to turn out as a whole. For now I've got a dreadnought work in progress photo for you but he's almost done. I still need to add weathering and paint the weapons of course. Anyway you can see the color scheme and get a general feel where I'm going with this project. Comments are welcome as always and if you like what I do, please subscribe or like me on Facebook if you want to show support. 


PS: TL-Autocanons or.... ?

Till tomorrow,

Isabella Von Carstein

I present to you finished Isabella, hope you like her.

Dragon's flu

      Hey, not much today but got Isabella ready for primming and I also did some sculpting on the rhino. Can't wait to paint these two things ^^. I'll get to it probably tomorrow.

     For Isabella I switched her dagger for a short sword and I added four tormented souls summoned by our Lady of the Night. My client has his army themed mostly around ethereal creatures so I wanted to give her an aspect of that as well.

     As for the rhino I decorated side doors with one of the salamander chapter's symbol. It turned out quite nice in comparison to the original. The bigger pair of horns is a bit too big but I think it's OK. Certainly, you won't mistake it for a chaos symbol or anything else. At this point the symbol looks like a Dragon's head with a bad case of flu xD. I'll do a comparison photo when I finish painting the symbol.

Volcanic Mountain Scouts

     Through the volcanic mountains and lava-filled rivers they travel to seek any danger that can come to harm their beloved people of Nocturne. It's a broad and dangerous waste land that doesn't forgive mistakes. That's why only the most tough and resistant space marines can belong to Scout Squads. Their duties don't end on simple reconnaissance missions. They also specialize in setting ambushes and traps for advancing enemy troops. Using the perfect knowledge of their home world to their advantage.

     Taking this into acount I decided to convert original scouts to make them look more fierce. Using some space wolves and chaos maruders bits I think I accomplished just that. Need to make some final tweaking and off to painting.

      Also guys, I picked up Isabella Von Carstein from my local miniature shop so you will be seeing a lot of Isabella from now on.
And they never saw her again...
Just kidding, that's a HIMYM reference. I will be painting her in next few day so keep your eyes open.

More Marines

      Hello there. More progress on th salamander project. Two tactical squads almost done, just need to get some Power Fists and I'll have them ready for painting. The first group is meant to travel in a razorback with the Forgefather. They have a Flamer, Sergeant with a PF and three tactical marines which makes a total of six guys. The second squad is a group of ten men. They travel in a rhino, the one you saw before. They also have a Sergeant with a PF, a flame thrower and a missile-launcher.

      I leave you with a WIP of a Sergeant from the scout squad. I equipped him with a combi-melta gun and ofc yet another PF. Did anyone noticed where I'm going to get all those Fists ? ;p


    Okey Happy Easter everyone I wish you a good relaxing time spent with your loved ones and family. Till Tuesday.

     The Salamander chapter is not like any other: " a Chapter are unusually concerned with civilian casualties compared to most other Space Marines and believe that one of their most important duties is to protect the lives of the Emperor of Mankind's innocent subjects whenever and wherever possible. This is an attitude that developed as a consequence of the Salamanders' own unusually close connections to the Nocturnean people, as they are one of the only Chapters of Astartes who continue to interact with their families and the people of their homeworld after their transformation into Space Marines..." Taking this into account I decided to base the whole salamander force on lava bases to represent Nocturne. This is what I've come up with:

I got more bases then I need. Now it's time to finish building all the minis and go straight to painting.
