Malus Trux Posted December 7, 2012 Share Posted December 7, 2012 So after seeing a number of superb Fireborn & reading the Tome of Fire anthology, I decided to paint up a small number of Salamanders again. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders01.jpg This is my Apothecary character, Shen, for Deathwatch. He's modeled after an existing character from Forgeworld & even shares the same last name. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders02.jpg I rolled well for strength but very high for toughness so I wanted this guy to have some heft to him. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders09.jpg A better comparison shot to get some sense of scale to regular guys. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders05.jpg When I made this guy I didn't have any reference pics so I later found out that skull on the elbow guard is upside down. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders03.jpg So I briefly considered this as the helmet for him, as in 40k this guy has artificer armor & if I make a Terminator unit, the sarge will have one. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders04.jpg In the end I decided against it as the gorget made it look awkward but I still ended up using that bit. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders06.jpg Some paint so far. So this guy is named Shen & Forgeworld released a couple of Badab bonus characters, one of them a Salamanders Apothecary named Harath Shen. If my guy lives, he'll be given the first name Harath & I'll use the campaign as backstory. If he dies, then Harath will have a vendetta against whomever killed his kinsman. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders07.jpg A better shot of the axe. This guy had a hilarious first session in DW. He took a bunch of ork right arms & did some wacky things such as shooting off one & beating one ork to death with another. Then at the end of his run, he ran into an ork nob. He parried a sharpened lead pipe with one of the severed ork arms, proceeded to break the nob's right arm & finally beat the nob's skull in, all with the same limb as a club. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v120/trex238/Salamanders08.jpg A ride for my soon to be made tac squad. I'm hoping the yellow will make a good base coat for the green. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
