I've just recently bought a few SM minis (a bike, a commander, and an apothecary) after resisting Space Marines for years, and I've decided to paint them up as Salamanders.
Can anyone give me advice on a good "recipe" for Salamander green? According to GW I'm supposed to be using snot green and I have been, but I'm not happy with the results so far at all. My guys look as if I'd colored them with "Green" out of the Crayola crayon box, it's very boring and flat.
Anybody have a good method for giving Salamander armor a nice deep look?
Water down some green ink, that should help a ton.

...with a drop of surface tension breaker or dishwashing detergent to help it find the nooks and not make the green 'glow'. :yes:Originally Posted by Sabe
Also what color are you using underneath. You should use a basecoat of black then Dark angels green, then a half and half Dark angels green and snot green. Then snot green. I suppose you can skip layer three. And yes the watered down ink will help.

Slap on some Army Painter - Green Skin spray paint, paint eyes yellow, guns black, chest aquila gold/silter, and dip in dark brown Army Painter Quick Shade http://usshop.thearmypainter.com/pro...=1#DARK%20Tone Should take you about a day to paint and polish a 2000 point army if you're looking for the quick and dirty.
Other than that, you wanna look up some painting tutorials on shading and wet blending if you wanna spend the time. The GW site has lots and type in stuff on YouTube, you'll be surprised at the amount of videos people post to show you how to paint things.
I agree about army painter dark tone dip. I sprayed mine with a snot green spray from Montana Gold spray paints. You can get them from wayland games and several online art shops. I used "Greenery" colour as it is a fraction lighter than snot green. I then painted all the black aread in as dark a grey as I could find (a lifecolour panzergrau) then did the guns in boltgun metal and adeptus grey on the flexible bits behind the knees abd elbows.
Dip on the whole model (painted on not dipped) and the superdark panzergrau is deepened further to make it almost black with shading. The green armour gets a nice shading too.
