Salamander Firedrakes WIP


So here at the Open Day amongst many things is a new Salamander squad, the Firedrakes. These are the new Terminator squads that have access to the Dragonscale Storm Shields. As shown they are still a work in progress but looking at the quality so far I cant wait to see the finished product!

Let me know what you guys think.

  3. Thanks for the photos! These are the Firedrake terminators - images of the Pyroclast squad (artificer armour, flamer/melta weapons) were posted recently on the Forgeworld site.

    Fantastic detail on these. Still hanging out for Alpha Legion news before settling on a legion, but the Salamanders keep on saying "pick me, pick me!" every time new photos go up...

    1. Have you checked our legion summary post? What you think of the legions?

    2. Just saw it then - I'm now completely sold on the Alpha Legion. Flexible tactics, a more interesting sniper character to replace the Vigilator in my recon squad, and all kinds of dirty tricks when fielding Alpharius.. all is now right with the world. Time to finally start painting the figures I've been putting together over the last year!

      Being able to steal a unit from another legion when using their Rite of War is a nice bonus, too. Almost like it was designed for players who still like the look of something in a rival legion... ;)

  5. Hi,
    Im currently building a Salamanders legion and have 10 Firedrakes as part of this (alongside Vulkan, a squad of Pyroclasts and the Dreadnought Dracos).
    My question is that the unit entry says that one can be upgraded to have a heavy flamer option; however none are provided in the set. Do you know if the Cataphracti Special Weapons Heavy Flamer would fit?
    Thanks, and as usual keep up the epic work!

    1. It won't fit the arms provided. It kinda sucks, you would need to heavily convert as the Cataphractii heavy flamer has pteruges under the arm where as the Fire Drakes have drake skin. I was planning on some similar builds when I get round to them but it's going to be a lot of work. Let us know how you get on.

    2. Yeah it looked difficult and my conversion skills are non existent! But I'll give it a go and see what happens!! Ive also asked Forge World to see what they suggest and will let you know!!

  6. Forge World have said that it wont fit unless converted to like you said, they may release it in the future but aren't aware of any plans to do so!
    Ive got a 40K heavy flamer and Salamander terminator shoulder pads so going to see what I can put together!!
