Forge World Salamanders project

Post by Rivan on Fri Mar 08, 2013 7:20 pm

Got home from work and saw the first of several orders from FW arrived cheers


Spartan Assault tank
LR Achilles
Deimos Predator Infernus
Deimos Predator Executioner

This is for my future project of building and painting a FW heavy Salamanders army. It's going to have almost all FW models/upgrades that a First Founding Legion can have. I had initially planned on doing Space Wolves but I really like the Salamanders Smile

The next orders will include:

SM Legion Fellblade
Typhon Heavy Siege tank
Deimos Predator
Deimos Rhino
Storm Eagle
Caestus Assault Ram
Mk2b Land Raider
Contemptor Dread
Dread Drop Pod
Bray'arth Ashmantle
Tartaros Pattern Terminators
MkII and MkIII armor types
Various Salamander upgrades

I love the Achilles - it's a really good looking tank.

Love the Fellblade!

Strangely enough, I'm working on an Imperial Fists army and I got some MkIIBs. Just be careful and check the kits as I was missing some key parts (I.e. the lascannons) and one of the replacements sent out was missing a whole lot more than that. All sorted as of yesterday so I can crack on and assemble my armoured column... Also contemplating making a MkIIB redeemer from the spare bits I have left :p

Yes, main reason I love them is because they are true defenders of humanity. And yes I'll paint their skins exactly how they are described in the books--jet black skin with red eyes.

Seems fun! I happened to get the Horus Heresy Book and want to start on a pre-heresy World Eaters army from forge world. But it's really expensive TT.TT

Not sure about Vulkan. I wasn't planning to go full pre-heresy. It'll still be a current Salamanders chapter but since they are a First Founding Legion, they would definitely have all the pre-heresy stuff as sacred relics. So in addition to having the pre-heresy tanks, they would definitely have the pre-heresy wargear as well. I plan to sprinkle MkII, MkIII and MkIV armor and assault packs probably w/ the Sternguard and Vanguard units.

Awesome. It sounds like there are endless possibilities for the concept behind the force you are making.

3rd of 5 packages came in...smaller box that contains almost all infantry:

tartarus pattern terminators, MkII assault squads, MkIV command set, etc plus some Salamander's specific rhino and LR doors Smile


To my surprise, my son's Tau order came in too. Didn't realize he's been saving up for the new Tau models Razz


I now I have a good idea on how his list is going to look after I saw the 5 broadside boxes and the 2 riptides. Anyways, I'm excited to borrow them as allies hehe bounce
