On the Eighteenth day of Xmas The Emperor gave to me:
Sor-cerers a' cast-in'
Poi-son and cont-a-gion
Big blue bastards
12 Butchers Nails
Ten Ma-chine addicts
9 Angels weeping
Psy-chos a' skin-in'
Seven breachers breaching
Sa-vage laugh-ing kill-ers!
Dirty ditch diggers
And a Legion full of mys-ter-y
Former Names: Dragon Warriors
First Captain at outbreak of Heresy: Artellus Numeon
Forge World Paint scheme:
SALAMANDERS COLOUR SCHEME
1. AIRBRUSH WITH TAMIYA FLAT GREEN
2. BLEND IN A HIGHLIGHT OF LOREN FOREST GREEN
3. WASH WITH LAHMIAN MEDIUM AND BIEL TAN GREEN
4. BRASS – WARPLOCK BRONZE AND RUNELORD BRASS
5. WASH WITH A MIX OF AGGRAXEARTH SHADE AND SERADHIM SEPIA (50/50)
6. SHADE – DRUCHI VIOLET
7. EDGE HIGHLIGHT - RUNELORD BRASS/ RUNEFANG STEEL
Alternative Paint scheme:
Spray or base coat with FWs Vulkan green
Wash the model with a mix of Agrax Earthshade and Klear floor cleaner (this is to make the model smell nice) (only joking!) (I mean it does smell nice but it also means the wash goes straight into the gaps)
Layer with neat Vulkan Green for a nice foresty fragran- I mean nice foresty look!
Warplock Bronze followed by a layer of Sycorax Bronze
Typical 2500pt list:
Praetor: archaeotech pistol; thunder hammer; iron halo; Mantle of the Elder Drake 190
9 Tactical Space Marines: chainswords; + 1 Tactical Sergeant (heavy chainsword) 155
• Rhino: heavy bolter 50
9 Breacher Marines: flamer; meltagun; + 1 Breacher Sergeant (thunder hammer) 270
4 Tactical Support Marines: + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant (close combat weapon and augury scanner) 100
Contemptor Dreadnought Talon
• Contemptor Dreadnought: heavy conversion beam; multi-melta; havoc launcher 225
4 Firedrake Terminators: 4× Dragonscale storm shield; 4× thunder hammer; + 1 Firedrake Master (Dragonscale storm shield; master-crafted thunder hammer) 350
• Spartan Assault Tank 295
4 Pyroclasts: + 1 Pyroclast Warden (power fist) 175
Predator Strike Squadron
• Predator: magna melta cannon; heavy flamer sponsons 145
So I started with a praetor with the Salamanders mantle...it comes with Eternal Warrior so why the hell not? I followed up with 3 troop choices, this is to unlock 1-3 fast attack and heavy support options. Now, Salamanders are a close range army that fight with insane brutality and pack a nasty punch. To me, they are a very specialised force similar to the Death Guard. They wipe planets with 'cleansing fire' instead of poisons and virus, but essentially they are the same. So I opted for a despoiler squad, breacher squad and a flamer tactical support squad. Nice!
Then I have taken a Contemptor with a conversion Beamer (esoteric), Multi Melta (flamey) and a havok launcher (just 'cause) and 5 Fire Drakes in a Spartan (maybe they could hang with big V?).
Heavy support - I have taken a Melta predator with Flamers for soooo much fire! A vindicator, for that close range punch, and a squad of Pyroclasts (MOAR FLAMES!) boom!
Let's not forget big V hisself though...he is coming. He is bringing the purest fires of hell.
I hope you have enjoyed my post 😊
