Hey everyone, if you are unaware what I'm doing from the modelling thread, I've started a Salamanders company and have started painting so I will posting all the pics up here.
To start off, I was hoping to get a vote on what colours look better.
Orkhide Shade basecoat
Snot Green overcoat
Goblin Green highlight
Scorpion Green highlight
Orchide Shade basecoat
50/50 Orkhide Shade/Snot Green overcoat
Snot Green highlight
Scorpion Green highlight
I'm looking to find out what colour green looks better. The first model is not completely painted as I was unsure which colour set to go with. PLEASE let me know.
I like the left one more. The right hand one looks a lot like a Dark Angel, whereas the lighter green seems more typical of Salamanders. Will look great when finished imo.
Yeah deffinently the left one, as cool as the right one looks the left is more salamander green.

They both look good, but it comes down to how you see your army. I am currently working on a blood angel army and instead of the usual bright red scheme that they are i went with a darker shade of red to differentiate them from the pack. I would have to say the darker green one.

Personally I don't think either of them has enough depth to them. The one on the left doesn't have enough shading, and the one on the right is too pale and colourless.
I think the one on the left would work better, but needs more shading.
My Dark Angels look alot like salamanders before their last wash.
The way I do them is:
Knarloc Green Basecoat
50-50 Snot Green - Scropion Green Basecoat
Thraka Green Wash
The wash will give you the desired shading while still keeping the colour light enough not to be mistaken for DA.
Hope I helped.

The left one looks more like a classic Salamander colour, however I prefer the darker one on the right personally, perhaps you could use more extreme highlighting to bring it closer.
One tip I would give you is to water down your highlights a little bit more. You are on the right track with them, but there needs to be some blending between the basecoat and the highlight.
Hope this helps
I like the left hand one, he looks more like the Salamander's scheme. I agree that that the shading could be a little bit deeper, a darker green in the depths of the armour would achieve this.
I would go with the left also... The right one seems too Dark Angel-ish...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Thanks everyone for your feedback. I am currently working on finishing up the Assault Squad, and then onto He'Stan, which im sure everyone is waiting to see now for awhile. No picutres at the moment to update you guys with, but as soon as i'm done, i'll post something. Enjoy the holidays.
Both looking nice, but I agree with the majority of posts. The left looks more like salamanders and the right looks Dark Angel'ish.
Looking forward to seeing some more pics
