    Cyrus goes LOYAL!!!?

    After two horrible months of not being able to get my PC to work I'm back with my latest work. I was turning too much towards the dark side, so I decided to start a loyal army. I had a small marine army catching dust and I had been thinking about repainting them for a long time.
    Now with Apoc out I really needed to do them so I didn't always have to team up with the baddies. The models were painted in a period when I used to drybrush everything and I usually didn't bother to remove the mouldlines...
    The next thing I had to figure out was which chapter I wanted to do. I really like the crimson fists, but I allready had worked enough with blue for a while, so I came up with the idea of doing Salamanders. I always loved the coloursceme and the background and green is my favourite colour so I couldn't go wrong there...

    Anyways... here's what I'm working on right now:

    1st squad's ride. Sorry about the photo, but the light was bad that day and I really wanted to get going...

    I'm going to add some more things, but it gives you a general idea...

    The funny thing is, there is no way you can fit 10 marines in there...

    Well all I can say is if you used to drybrush and that Salamander squad was your next step in painting, kudos to you, mate! Nice work so far, watch the gaps on that Rhino's smoke launchers tho!

    Very nice Salimanders, especially the one with the combat knife drawn!

    Actually, a number of people have managed to model a Rhino's interior with 10 Marines inside it. Even the old Rhinos, too, IIRC.


    Excellent Salamanders, though. I love the precise highlighting you've done there.

    Very nice. You don't see too many Salamanders armies. I am looking forward to seeing more.

    Salamanders are good, the tank interior is great. I think its really damn good. However, i feel the outside is a bit of a let down in comparison. It needs something, a bit more colour and detail. You've given yourself a tough benchmark, now you need to live up to it.

    Keep up the good work.

    A very good looking army so far. Always thought about starting a Salamanders force, maybe now is a good time, seeing all the good stuff I can steal. Can’t wait for more.

    Hey Cyrus,

    sweet looking marines.
    These for the next GT?

    I was doubting whether to go DH or Salamanders and you made it easy: DH it is.
    I can't compete with these

    Keep it up and give us more!

    By the far the best looking Salamanders I have seen in a long time Cyrus. Would you mind walking us through the steps on the green armour?

    Love the worn feeling the rhino has going with the mesh on the front and all the assorted knick knacks along the top. The painting on the marines is very clean and crisp. All in all, good isht, waiting for more updates.

    Re: Cyrus goes LOYAL!!!?

    Okay, on request. How to do the armour (if you you want to do it my way).
    step 1
    I used a chaos black spraycan for the undercoat. Then I used Ork hide shade as a base colour.
    step 2
    I used snotgreen to paint the armour again, but making sure not to go over the deep lines where you still want the ork hide shade to show.

    step 3
    I mixed 2/3 snotgreen with 1/3 scorpion green to do the first highlight. It can be tricky because again you do not want to go over the ork hide shade bits.

    step 4
    I put a second highlight on the armour using scorpion green this time.


    that's all there is to it...
