Default The Kobra Iron Legion (Updated 7/18/12)Dr. Mindbender

These pics are a bit blurry because all I have is my camera phone. These are just a few models, I have much more, but they are all in the states, and I'm currently abroad. I hope you can recognize the influence ;)

First up is the Commander himself...Only he usually says "ATTACK!" rather than "REEETREEEAAAAT!!"






Here is a small group of veterans...I've got about 20 more of these guys at home...the mask work is a little rough, but it looks good on the table, so thats really all I care about for my "minions" ;)





here's one with the big man.


And finally, a Kobra Flight Pod...better known as a trouble bubble. These will take the place of scout sentinels. I used a mix of the sentinel kit, a tau battlesuit and a bubble from one of those quarter toy machines.










COOOOBRAAAAAAAAA RETREE......ATTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!

Great idea. Well done, nice to see something new. The trouble bubble is excellent.

That is awsome! I love to see people put time and effort into their armies to make them really stand out. + rep!

by the way, does anyone know of any aftermarket helmets/heads, I can use for the stander cobra trooper...I dont have a problem GSing the face mask, but I don't feel like doing heavy GS work for every head for a whole platoon.

These might be your best bet. They're from Pig Iron Minis, a great company for conversion bits, and they're very cheap.
