Adeptus Titanicus Reaver Titan

Here’s a Reaver titan to go with the Warlord titan I finished late last year. Definitely much easier to paint! I managed to slightly mis-position the feet and toes, meaning that the armour plates on the leg are a bit wonky, but thankfully it’s not too noticeable. I won’t make that mistake again!

I’m now working on some Cerastus and Acastus knights. Rather than going for a homebrew House I’m going to paint them as House Malinax.

Salamanders Intercessors

I’ve finally finished my ten-man squad of Intercessors! The squad is set up so that I can split it into two five-man squads: one of the battle-brothers has a Forge World shoulder pad so he’s easy to “upgrade” into a Sergeant.

Of course I’ve pre-ordered Adrax Agatone, so expect him to make an appearance on this blog in the next few months!

Necron Seraptek Heavy Construct

As soon as Forge World released this model I knew I wanted one! My amazing other half bought me one for Christmas, and I’ve just finished it.

It has the same basic colour scheme as my other large Necron models: I used a piece of firm sponge to stipple Warpstone Bronze over a black undercoat, and then drybrushed with Brass Scorpion, finished with a highlight of Vallejo brass. Simple but very effective!

The Sons of the Forge

Last night I thought it would be fun to lay out my entire Warhammer 40,0000 Salamanders army (at least, all of it that’s painted). I did a quick tot-up and it turns out that I have over 4,000 points worth which is a lot more than I would have guessed!

Another nice surprise is how consistent the colour scheme is between the first model and the last, despite there being a six-year gap between them. My painting skills have definitely improved in that time but the old and new models both work perfectly well next to each other on the table.

I still need to paint (or finish painting):

  1. Two three-man Aggressor squads
  2. A five-man Sternguard Veteran squad
  3. A five-man Terminator squad
  4. A five-man Scout Sniper Squad
  5. A Librarian (converted from the model in the Deathwatch Overkill game)
  6. A ten-man Primaris Intercessor squad

I also have ten Mark III tactical Marines and ten Tartaros-pattern Terminators, but I am not sure if I am going to put those into my Salamanders or my Horus Heresy Word Bearers.

You can see blog posts about all of the models in these photos here.

Salamanders Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought

My love affair with all things Primaris continues! Just like the Hellblasters and the Astraeus, the Redemptor Dreadnought is both an awesome model and also really easy and fun to paint: all the green parts were painted separately from the dreadnought’s superstructure, so the whole process was relatively quick and easy (albeit spread out over several months since I no longer have a permanent hobby space).

The flames on the armour plates were painted using Duncan‘s technique for Salamanders flame heraldry, and I am very happy with how it’s turned out! I may be going back to some of my older models and adding it to them (especially the shoulder pads on my tactical and assault marines).

The right arm weapon is magnetised so I can swap the plasma incinerator (which is the obvious choice when fielding Vulkan He’stan, since you get a re-roll to avoid the mortal wound on a roll of 1 when supercharging) with the gatling cannon, if appropriate.
