The Emperor's Dragons

861 Favourites
First piece in two months, running around on holiday! So good to get back to work, though I thought it would be great to get on with a brand new fun piece to kick start!

This is a captain from the third company of the 1st battalion, Emperor's Dragon legion. Last legion of the Emperor. Comparing him to my first one 12 months ago:… I'd say I've come a long way!!

Hope you like it =)

As a dumb or silly question. Can you make a primaris Emperor's dragon Marine? And cataphractii? But I absolutely love your art.😁

I would love to and have plans already, just need time. I've got a mental amount of work to do!!

Since they are the 21st legion, which orginazational structure did they go with? If I remember right, each of the 18 First Founding legions had their own unique take on the same thing.

Full strength of the Emperor's Dragons is unknown, with 10 battalion's of anything between 1000 to 10,000 marines under the command of a Commander.  Dragonatus, the Eternal Dragon and primarch of course leads the Legion as a whole.  Organisation of each battalion is similar to that of the Space Wolves, if only in organisation and nothing else, with squads of 10, 15 marines, command, etc in over-all similarity to the wolves, reason being that since the Dragon's roam the extreme fringes of the empire, they need a loose, adaptable formation to take on any of the Emperor's foes alone, as they are a secret and unknown force to a great deal of the imperium, except of course to those in the order 666 and inquisition...
