Salamander Apothecary

OK.  Time to show you what I've been doing.  I decided that for once I need to put my money where my mouth is, and have a crack at one of the monthly painting contests Librarium-Online runs.  The current theme, for those who don't know, is MEDIC!  With this in mind, and recently having come across a great looking mini and piece of old Salamander fluff I dived in.  The mini itself has little conversion work done to it - the main thing being I gave him a straight aiming right arm (why does GW not produce these?  Its annoying... ), the rest is just basics.

Overall I am really happy with the way he looks.  He has lost some of the more subtle shades and highlights in transference to a photo, but it happens.  The only thing I am really not happy with is the "glass" vials.  I just couldn't get it right, something I need to work on.  My favourite part is the red.  Its a really nice, deep tone.  I love it! 

And now... pictures!


  1. I'm impressed. I can't wait to see how you base it.

  2. Nice work, good luck to you!

  3. I really like that man, its a great mix of colours - it makes it a very vibrant model. Good job :)

  4. Looking good! Can't wait to see him based and finished. Do you plan to do some OSL from the lamp on his back?

  5. Thanks guys!

    Da Green Skins - I plan to stick with the Salamander's theme and attempt my first lava base.

    Noeste - I am not no. I am still not confident enough to wander into that territory just yet. One day.

  6. I never would have guessed Salamanders from your helmet tease. The colors look great together.

  7. Jcroxford - That was sort of the point. But thanks. =D
