Hi folks,

After 6 months of painting I have finally finished my Salamander Sternguard. These models have been completed to the best of my ability as it currently stands. So without further ado on with the pictures.

Holy crap that's some tight painting. Did you use gloss varnish on the armor? Looks awesome!

Nice highlights and blending on the flames. The eyes need to be a spot colour to make it pop though, e.g. yellow.

Hi There,

I used Winsor & Newton Artists Matt Varnish (Spray). Unfortunately it takes ages to Dry and leaves a slight satin finish. This has been exagerated by the flash on my camera as the lighting where I live is poor.

Thanks for the complement. Do you think a complete redo on the eyes or would a few layers of yellow glaze be enough?

The paint job is great! My only criticism is the green eyes. They may need to be red, or another colour as they are a focal point, and being green doesn't let the model 'pop' enough.

Otherwise, GREAT JOB!!!

And paint more stuff as I likey what I see

Stunning work, they look superb. I agree about the eyes though. I think a brighter yellow would look good, but definately need something! Apart from that they are excellent.
