More Space Marines?

It's funny how doing something like painting that teeny tiny Terminator can spark off a sudden need to paint some 30mm Space Marines. I really enjoyed painting the high contrast saturated green and although in theory Salamanders wear more of an olive green these days, I am really tempted to go for the bright 'in your face' look of GW's Moot Green (in other words, how I painted the Epic Terminator)

In the meantime, while I decide on colours, I have started to put together the unit. Here are the first two from a command squad - Battle Standard Bearer with storm bolter and another veteran with an obligatory melta gun (heck, they are Salamanders after all).

They are going to be battle worn and gritty despite the brightly coloured armour - you might even be able to see some of the chips and bullet holes I have carved into them already.


  1. Can't wait to see them! I am trying to "power" through my DV boxed set :P Ugh, so much detail on those chosen...

    1. Thanks Zab! These are a little more plain than the chosen, but I am trying to get enough interest in them to make them a bit more striking. I've been trying my hand at sculpting a Salamander logo on a plastic shoulder pad...
