Default The Iron Dragons so far.......

Well I don't know if this is the right spot to put this, but seeing as I'm new to the site I thought I'd introduce you all to my chapter, the Iron Dragons.
Now I've not come up with much for them fluff wise as I've not played any 40k before, but I'm loosely basing them on the salamanders (until I can come up with something better!) Anyway enough of my rambling here's some pics.

Welcome to Heresy online.

This is certainly the right place to be putting this sort fo thing. Some nice models there, and I like the gold polarised eyes, very effective.

These do like like well weathered marines.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Good to have you here!

I agree with Hum..., I really like the effect of the gold eyes. They look like cool sunglasses.

They look pretty awesome! love the visors, how'd you make them like that anyway? really makes them stand out a bit. And were you going for a master-chief look on your terminator, or did it just turn out like that.

It was an idea someone else had used on another forum I use, for the marines. You just slice across the top of the visor level, then into the bridge of the nose and carve it out to shape. The terminator is on it's version 2.0, at first I just cut a slit through the eye lenses but it was only a couple of mm thick and didn't look right, so in the end I just pretty much cut off the nose up and levelled off to give the fuller faced effect. I'm really really pleased with how the visors turned out, they just have a really cool glow to them. As for the masterchief look, it was by accident but I quite like the similarity. Makes them stand out from normal SM's without having to do anything drastic, which of course can be saved for the good stuff.

I like the banner, the flames are very well done.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “The current system of servitude is barbaric and inadequate for today's generation. We appeal to the leaders of both the Imperium and the Coalition of Hateful Assholes and Organised Sin to seek to change this for the betterment of all its citizens”

Lorgar: “Guess there was one plot thread we forgot to erase ...” Mortarion nods in agreement, while Ahriman looks on suspiciously.

Aerith/Aeris Gainsborough: “We feel trapped, we feel oppressed. And we urge our governments to release us from these metal boxes-”

Lorgar: “Oh shi-”

Firraveus Carron: Leaping to his feet. “METAL BOXES?!?METAL BOXES!!!THEY RIDE IN METAL BOXES!!!”

Ok so this is an extremely rough, very very basic mock up of a potential heavy flamer for my terminators. I know the barrel is to long but it was the first piece of pipe I could find at the time. What's peoples thought's

Your dragon on your banner looks a lot like a doodle I did back in high school of a rock wyrm. I like the dragon head on your flamer, its a nice touch, just got to have a bit of flame spouting out to finish it off. IMHO that is.

Do not fear the Hive Mind for it is good and we are all together. . .Or you will be! *Chomp*

Thanks, but I'm still not sold on the flamer head. Hopefully it'll grow on me while I'm working on it more.
