Looking great. I want that board!

I'm about to spend three weeks in Nashville training and was going to paint some salamanders while I sit there myself!

In the Salamander Omnibus (almost done-so don't ruin it ;) ) the author always refers to salamanders with orange hair, so I figured, "why not?"

Finished the Salamanders (minus bases) and got started on the next unit for the Peace Marine Legion...Venom Thorns. I have 10 tacticals and 5 Terminators and a couple of vehicles.

My last post got caught in the site going down...ah, well...

here are a couple of test bases for the salamanders. Pics kinda blurry.

Started work on the Venom Thorns. Only found one reference to them in a short story. Armor like a beetles carapace and gold helmets and sigils. I figure anything else I can do what I want :)

Great work! Those salamanders rival your dark Eldar! I'm down for a nashville game/ hobby time! If you have WFB, Xaz, it would be a great time for Triumph and Treachery...

I finished up the basing on the salamanders this morning. They are all now peace marine marked and ready to join that force. Pics later.

If you and Xaz want to head here and play and smoke a brisket or something we can do that too.
