Default Salamander Space Marine Scouts

Hi everyone,

I finally finished these guys. Firstly, I want to apologise for the absolutely horrendous picture quality; it is near impossible to distinguish shading on the skin. The squad layout is also strange. I didn't really want to have two of the five models with close combat weapons and bolt pistols, but I lost the remaining bolter equipped arms, so I have to make due with what I had. Lastly, I'm sorry the poses look so static.

Anyway, here they are. I've also included some WIP pictures at the end.















A WIP shot:



Also, please note the bases are unfinished.

Thanks for looking, C & C appreciated.

AC

Love them! They're my favorite loyalist chapter and you've done a wonderful job on them!

Everyone keeps telling me the Salamanders are all black though...I always thought the different chapters culled possible acolytes from wherever they could though.

Ya, especially since the Salamander's lost a huge number of Marines in the Heresy i'd figure they would expand to find recruits wherever they could not just from their "home" planet. The vet. members could be modelled more dark though to reflect their Promethian origins.

Salamander's were the first 40k army i ever played and I really like the way the green was done on your Scounts. I think it will transfer well to the power armored marines and vehicles.

One suggestion I have for you though is to drill the barrels of the Boltguns. It will add a little more realism to your miniatures.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll do that once I get access to a pin vice.

No, nice try. It's a new Weber barbecue.

Thanks for the comments.

A barbeque? How strange!
Still, those are some great models.
As said before, drilling holes in the barrels would make them even more impressive.

Really like them. Great gradients as well. Post the rest of your Salamanders up?

What's so strange about a barbeque? Everyone loves grillin'.
