I think they sound awesome. The only other time I have heard them mentioned is when they were interviewing one of the witchhunters designers and he just happened to mention it. It was in an old WD released in 2004 if memory recalls.

Secondly who says the DA are gay in any sense. I find particular aspects like the ravenwing to be badass and gives them flavour and originality. At best they could be described as moody in my eyes.

If anything the BA sound more gay since GW like putting man nipples on a lot of the models.

Also-1000th post!

I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Chears Admiraldick, I had only come up with a background on a whim so its good to know opinions on it. Only thier home-planet name is set in stone, that and they at least where involved with Rogue Trader and Space Crusade.

As for any pictures i'll more than likly post them on Coolminiornot but I have a link in my signature anyway. I should have acouple more pictures of them by the end of the week as i've finished two more units, a land raider too but I cant find its lascannons (just incase your interested WarMaster Sindr)

Also as reguarding lizardman weapons I had thought of it but I didn't want to use anything to obvious. Been looking at some historical aztec figures to steal thier swords but not found anything big enough. At the moment i'm green-stuffing wild cat hides to the torsos of my sergeants.

For a better selection of my conversions and painting please check out

the Lizardmen Saurus Warriors are clearly Aztec inspired and their weapons are of a comparable scale to most other 40k stuff. you might want to see how they work out. they will certainly be your cheapest and most effective source of weaponry.

edit: just had a quick look at your coolminiornot page; absolutely love your pre-heresy marines. really looking forward to seeing your Rainbow Warrirors now.

Being obvious helps, especially when you're trying to avoid them looking like other chapters.
