Salamanders Legion part 5

Cassian Dracos the first Commander of the XVIII Legion. Entombed in a dreadnought built by the hands of Vulkan himself to honor the veteran commanders accomplishments.

I decided to paint Dracos different from the other dreadnoughts. I decided black was an appropriate color for a couple of reasons. First is that it helps him stand out in a sea of green. Another reason is that many Legions, including the Salamanders, associate the color black with veteran status. A third reason is that I will be using him as both Cassian Dracos and Cassian Dracos Reborn and I felt that Dracos Reborn was a very dark and sinister character that black was appropriate for.  I will be adding Narik Dreygur to my army as well. Since I've found it difficult getting hold of his model for less than $50 I decided to convert a model to represent him. It wasn't difficult and he is done except for his base. So I'll post my pictures of him next, once he is completely done.


  1. I'm really glad I took the time to look at the big size pictures. So much technique and detail here. Great looking figure.

    1. Thank you. Yeah, the battle damage obscures a little of the shoulder detail, but hopefully it still comes through.
