Just built my ten pyroclasts models, I will be painting them for next two weeks.....
I did get a bit distracted by finding a dreadnought drop pod off a mate for £20! I've stripped it and took it apart fully...going to use some brass rods on the door hinges so it's like new. So much old thick super glue and green stuff stuffed into gaps that could of just been straightened lol.
Not going to touch the drop pod thou.... it's not in my tournament list. Maybe if I finish my projects I will paint it up.

I love how the plastic got people into Heresy that otherwise wouldn't have but I hate all the plastic models, I can tell a big difference between the resin and the plastic Contemptor makes me ill🤢

Those pyroclasts are brilliant Jimmyp. I really dig the fuel canisters colour as it really offsets well against the salamander green. Great stuff.

Excellent. Even though I'm not a fan of Salamanders, I'm really enjoying watching your army develop. Those Pyroclasts look epic.

No particular reason or anything against them - it's just their background, style and the way they have been written in the BL books has never really captured me. I can appreciate well-painted models of them but their narrative doesn't grab me in the same way as Sons of Horus, Iron Warriors or the Thousand Sons for example.

Great pyroclasts.
