Vulkan the Forgefather by MajesticChicken Vulkan the Forgefather by MajesticChicken
Colored up this pic of the Forgefather of the Salamanders Chapter.

Added little bits of scales to his armor, some smoke coming out of a vent as I believe Salamanders are an industrious lot so I was just goin with it.

As usual, don't know who the original artist is.

Whatever happened to Vulkan? Guilliman is in a state of maybe-death, as is Lion'el Johnson; The Khan, Corax, Leman Russ are lost in the Warp, and Sanguinius, Dorn, and Ferrus Manus are all dead. Does anyone know what happened to him?

I think he went wandering around the galaxy, maybe going into the Eye of Terror like Leman Russ.

:w00t:Quiet an incredible work you did on coloring this image that really brings out the magnificence of an Astartes, due I really most Point out that this isn't at all Vulcan Primarch of the Salamanders or rather his:

Vulkan He'stan who is the current Forgefather of the Salamanders. He'stan was originally the captain of the 4th company and served in that role for a century. The Chapter Council then called him to set aside his duties as captain and become the Forgefather. As he let go of his old duties, he also received a new name; Vulkan He'stan.

As Forgefather, He'stan has worked his way from system to system in search of the nine artifacts of Vulkan, his only clues coming from the Tome of Fire, which is extremely difficult to interpret, let alone put into use. Instead of calling solely on members of the fourth company, He'stan can call on any number of Salamanders to aid him in his quest. The Salamanders are more than happy to cleanse an area of a world on a rumored that a piece of their history is there.

Ahh thanks very much for the clarification. I thought his armor was a little too modern but I digress, I will change the title now!
