Hrm..aren't the lenses red on -all- space marine suits anyways? Or is it one of those artistic-licenses painters typically take?

Many do, but it differs depending on the chapter. I believe this colour is correct for the Salamanders, as far as I can remember.

Not all space marine chapters have red eyelenses, but a significant amount do.

You can always BS around it saying that the reason they are that colour is because they have some sort of tactical xray pwnzor vision and they ran out of red glass. Or not.

Weird. For some reason the word Salamander made me think of orange.

Still, looks nice. Couple of scratches and dents and you're set.

Cause orange, is the color of the Lit Promethium, spewing forth from the Heavy Flamers of the Chapter ;)

they are not gold, they are yellow...and I've found lots of pictures from Games Workshop were they do have yellow eye lenses. If GW made it, it's not wrong.

Hi, I just check the Space Marines Codex, and the Salamanders minis have the same eye lenses colour you made on your's (Green/Yellow). Lot of chapters have red eye lenses but not all of them (Blood ravens and IF have greens for instance).

Is the emblem a model or a texture because it looks a little flat?

It's a model, might look flat with the 3ds coloring I made, with DirectX shaders it looks much better.

It's Jetblack, like the rest of the color scheme. And I don't know why, it just is... :P

Won't these guys be hard to see in-game, what with being predominantly black from the top and behind?

The Apothecary and the Techmarine are going to be white and red respectively anyway (I assume), so perhaps something that fits with those colours would be better, like Space Wolves (Light Grey/Blue) or like this: Media.photobucket.com

Actually, Space Wolves might be hard to see against the greyish floors, I'm sure you know what you're doing :)

Great work with the models, just the right level of detail for AS, and good luck for the rest of the mod.
