I am starting a Salamander chapter, and want to stay true to their "fluff".
I would like to know, how to paint various tones of brown skin and black skin.
Thanks in advance!
Try out German c. black its a vallejo paint and its similair to Scorched brown bit isnt as rich or glossy, Is great for Brown skin.
No i believe they look something like this. Not to sure beccuase there are so many chapter these days its hard to distinguish. Atleast for me
The Salamanders are technically-adept warriors with a preference for short-ranged combat; they have a tendency to favor pyrotechnics. Physically, the Salamanders have coal-black skin and red eyes due to the high levels of radiation on Nocturne.
Scarification is a common practice among the warriors of the chapter.(involves scratching, etching, or some sort of superficial cutting or incision. in this case as a permanent body modification, etching designs, pictures, or words into the skin.)
So they would have actually black skin and to add even more character (like they need it) you could try out doing some scarring, makes me want to start salamanders even more!
I got this info from the good old wikipedias =D
In the way of how to paint it...for coal black I would say 50/50 codex grey/chaos black base, midtone codex, highlight 50/50 fortress grey/codex grey and then wash with badab black
hope it helps,
You can try painting a brown basecoat using the brown gw foundation paint. Then get some tan paint, water it down a little, and put two thin coats on. Then use some flesh wash (watered down significantly if its the old stuff) and put two dabs of that on, then one of a brown wash (watered a lot as well) highlight with tan.
