Painted: Heresy-era Salamanders Apothecary

Greetings once again InterWebs!!! More work was done in the hobby room, paint was applied everywhere it seems! The work on my Heresy-era Salamanders continues with an Apothecary. Once again he is in Mk IV armor like everyone else in my army; I wanted to keep it a theme and thanks to Forge World I am able to come close to having everything in Mk IV armor. My Apothecary is a fairly standard build with only the addition of an auspex (on his belt) and his drake scale cloak (which all of my 'characters' wear) to set him apart from the basic model.

Here he is waiting to be based:

Left shoulder waiting for the upcoming Mk IV armor Salamander shoulder pad:

Even the Apothecary has a fetish/trophy rope. I added these to help show the early stages of the Promethean Cult and to show the prowess of the Legionnaire.

I kept the cowl on his drake scale cloak intact because I liked the way it raised up behind his helmet:

A closer look at his tabard and the auspex on his belt:

The model is supposed to be stepping up on something it seems so I will make sure to have him stepping up on something when he gets based this weekend. I thought about using a cloth banner I have for him but the cloak and the backpack apparatus all seem to interfere with it.

That is all for now, next up will be my Legion Terminators. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! Take care!


  1. WOW! I just got caught up on all of your posts.
    Great photography! I like the highlights and contrasting cloak colors. It seems as if the Chapter serf is akin to a "red shirt" (Star Trek).... poor guy.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks!

      The chapter serf (named Baldrick now) is just a marker to show the Librarian has a storm shield. I went with the red scale cloaks on most of the guys as I feel the red is a nice little help to the green to make it pop a bit more. Thanks for taking a look!
