Army Showcase: Paul’s Salamanders w/ Blood Angels

Hey all, themightysquig here bringing you another army showcase. Today we’re looking at some beautiful Space Marine and Blood Angel models.  Paul brought this army to take on Son of Adam in our most recent battle report. You can see photos of this army in action in our latest batrep teaser.

Two pieces that I like the most out of this army are the scouts and the assault marines.  The camouflage cloaks that the scouts are wearing look amazing in forest terrain, while the assault marines just look really boss. But that’s enough talking for me – take a look at this pics!

Snipers with great camo scheme.

Converted Librarian

Beautiful Salamander tactical squad.

Great detail on the sergeant and his banner.

Salamanders proudly don the name of their forgefather.

Assault marines painted well on some resin bases.

Special thanks to Stomping Grounds for letting us take pictures in their store.
