Of all the new Chaos models, the Helldrake appealed to me the most. For one thing it is a flyer, for another it looks like a dragon. So I knew I had to add one to my Chaos army.
Upon building the model, I was some what disappointed. For one thing, the way the wings layer on to the model makes posing it fairly static. For another, the lack of weapon options makes it either a ground attack aircraft or an anti-aircraft flyer. While I chose the anti-air build, I have heard the flamer can be quite devastating in game.
I stuck to the same pallet as the other Thousand Sons models. The final result I think worked pretty well, however I don't know if I will add another to the force.
I'm a life long reader of sci-fi and fantasy; and have been painting and modelling for about 10 years. Interested in chatting about some of the other books I've read? Send me an email or drop me a line on Shelfari.
