It’s kind of silly that it’s taken me more than four years to paint this model, but I’m so glad that I finally did! Soon after I bought it, I primed it using Army Painter Army Green, the same as all the other models, but I quickly realised that it was a mistake and that I should have primed it black instead; and it’s taken me this long to get round to stripping it and re-priming it using the airbrush.
Bray’arth is a great centerpiece model and counts as an HQ choice for Salamanders army. I’ve designed my Salamanders army around Vulkan He’stan in that I have a lot of meltas, but there’s no reason why I can’t take both models as long as the points limit allows.

Hey, im a bit of a noob at 40k so I was just wondering, is it possible for vulkan he’stan and bray’arth ashmantle to be in the same army due to bray’arth being a HQ choice? the army I am planning is also built around vulkan with lots of meltas and is 1850 points, so is it possible for bray arth to be in this?
You can have both models in the same army (Combined Arms Detachment allows up to 2 HQ units), but only one can be your warlord. You probably want to nominate Vulkan as your warlord so you get the “Forgefather” benefit (all meltaguns, combi-meltas and multi-meltas become master-crafted). If Bray’arth is your warlord, then you get “Engine of Destruction” (1 Victory point for each vehicle with at least one Armour Value of 12 or more and/or Independent Character that Bray’arth Ashmantle destroys in an assault which involves no other friendly models in the combat).
