The Order of the Dragon's Blood?
I am looking for a new name for my Space Marine Chapter. Formerly it was called the Emperor's Dragons but I have already found 2 other people who also have chapters called the same. Both have done theirs in Black as the base color where I went with red. I have decided to give my Chapter a new name. I am currently working with The Order of the Dragon's Blood or simply Blood Dragons. Please comment on what you think about the new name. If you have any legitimate suggestions please put them in comments as well. :) (I was also thinking about "Fire Dragons" but I think that may already be in use)
I have been working on finishing up the Tac squads for the BD.
Here are the 1st and 4th squads.
I have decided to try Cato Sicarius in my army. I bought the model and after a close examination I discovered that he is covered in Ultra Marine symbols. This was not going to work. Something had to be done. so out came the hobby tools and after a lot of work most of the Omegas were gone.
Cato's Backpack was right out! It is covered in symbols. I went with a Space wolf backpack (The one with the wolf head tied to the back.) I added some horns to it making it look more like a Dragon's skull. I think it came out pretty good.
I went for my standard Red Paint scheme instead of the Gold armor I normally use for leader types. The cloak is done more like my my space wolves rather than my normal dragon colors. it makes a nice contrast.
The Gold was done with Tin Bitz, Shining Gold with Dwarf Bronze highlights.
Leather was done with Dark Flesh, Verman Brown and Snakebite leather.
Red is too dificult to describe here. ;)
Here is the finished model.
Army List Idea.
I call it Assault/Suppression
