Forging a Narrative! (...or maybe just heating and hitting stuff) - Salamanders test Firedrake

I've liked Salamanders since my first introduction to them in the days of the Armageddon mini-codex back in 3rd edition, but this is the first time I've gotten to paint one.

I'm very happy with how this test mini came out- I tried some new experiments with NMM on the warm metal, and think I got the contrast down really well. The base isn't quite done, but I think the mini's worked out nicely, with a very limited palate (most of the colors actually have a lot of the same secondary and tertiary colors mixed in for shades and highlights).
