I think I'll do it like my other flamer nozzle in a bronze colour then add scorching, I just think it looks to fantasy that's all. For some reason I don't think it works as well as what I did on my dreadnought.

Could we see a frontal shot? I imagine the head would be pretty wide compared to the gun. Sideways on it looks pretty good; just a shorter barrel needed, as you say.

The head is wide but works with the chunkyness of the terminator. That said I'm going to file down the cheeks a little as I don't like the "chipmunk" shape it has. I'll do that tonight as I'm stuck at work at the minute!

Ok so here is the 2nd incarnation of my flamer, it's still in a rough draft kind of state as I was just mocking it up but it show's what it's going to look like when it's finished.

The only problem I can see is that the dragon head is placed slightly too highly - the pipe looks like it is attached to where the dragon's tongue is, not quite the back of its throat.
If you agree that it needs changing, I'd consider shaving down the tongue instead of moving the head - it doesn't very much of a difference, just a mill or so, but the pipe below stops you doing that easily otherwise.

However, the overall effect is very impressive, that's a well done flamer! Nicely painted marines too, with very unique visors.

Well I've slapped some paint on the flame thrower, but it's missing something. I think there's just a bit to much red on it, I may do the cylinder on the back black/yellow chevrons any other idea's? Please excuse the shocking photo's they were taken at work.

Definitely too much red on it. I'd probably make the gas cylinder all one colour (i'd go with black) and then dull the red up a bit on the rest of it.

The actual flamer head looks bitchin' though, mind if i steal the design in the future?
