This is just an extraordinary model, and the perfect exemplar of just how damn good Games Workshop’s designers have become at sculpting using modern techniques. This miniature literally could not have existed five years ago!
It was also surprisingly easy to paint to a level that I didn’t think I’d achieve given the amount of effort I put in. It’s not much more than a zenithal basecoat with a rattle can, some pin washes, and a bit of drybrushing.

One of GW’s special store anniversary models. A fantastic pose, which was nice and easy to customise with the Salamanders upgrade sprue. I think I finished this chap in a single sitting!
These are the last of the Salamanders models painted for me by The Unrelenting Brush. As with some of the other models, I added decals and flames once I got the models back.
The Unrelenting Brush did a great job of this model. I particularly love the flame effect on the shield. I added the flames on the shoulder pads and the decals after I got the model back.
These Bladeguard Veterans were painted by Darren from Burning Beard Studios.
The Bladeguard Ancient was painted by The Unrelenting Brush. I added the flames and decal to the shoulder pad after I got it back.
This is two five-man Assault Intercessors squads, painted by Darren of Burning Beard Studios. As with the other models he painted for me, he’s added some 3D-printed accessories to make them distinctive. I really like the helmet on this sergeant:
Two of the characters from the Indomitus box set painted by The Unrelenting Brush. I have lots of Overlords but I really like this model – like the Royal Warden, it’s a very macho pose, and a lot more intimidating than the other versions of this character.
These models have been languishing in my “pile of shame” for no less than seven years, so I was very happy that Darren from Burning Beard Studios did such a good job on them. He added some 3D-printed bits to make them a unique squad.
This is such an awesome model! After I got it back from The Unrelenting Brush, I decided to add some flames to the armour panels (I also added the decals) which helps to tie it in with the rest of the army.
Primaris Eradicators are a very Salamanders-esque unit, and I am definitely going to add more of these to my army. Another great paint job by Darren of Burning Beard Studios.
