Salamander Update - Sternguard Edition

It's been a while since I last wrote about these guys.  Since last time, I've spent a good bit of time working on two new members that will make up the first demi-squad of Sternguard for my Salamander army.  The first of these is a standard marine armed with a bolter.  Nothing special and yet I feel he stands out nonetheless.  Perhaps it's the silver arm that does it.  For me, there's something about the fairly standard 'I'm-going-to-gun-you-down' pose that's particularly fitting for these guys.  This model also uses Forgeworld MK V 'Heresy' pattern armour on the arms and backpack, as it matches the plastic chest piece that comes with the standard plastic boxed set.

The next fellow has been recently completed and continues the use of combi-weapons to enhance the fire-power available to the squad as a whole.  With this guy finished, my merry band of veterans have swollen to a hefty three members.  Hopefully over the next week or so I'll be inspired to paint the next two veterans needed to complete the demi-squad.  Another combi-weapon and a Sergeant will be perfect additions I think.  Now to get them built and painted.

With this guys finished, the updated stats are as follows:

Miniatures Purchased: 8
Miniatures Painted: 41
Points of Painted Salamanders: 495 pts

Catch you all later



  1. Nice simple and clean paint job, I like these! Thank you for sharing!

  2. agree with the above. There are quite a few colors on these guys but they make really work and make each model look much more like an individual.

    1. I have to admit, I was a little concerned with the number of colours on the model, but I'm happy they turned out for the best :).
