The Aeldari Fire Dragons fulfill a crucial role in combat, specializing in attacking enemy strongholds and armored vehicles. Armed with powerful fusion guns, they can swiftly reduce both troops and tanks to mere vapor or molten metal. In the event of an advancing enemy vehicle, the Fire Dragons resort to melta bombs, expertly breaching tank armor and obliterating any survivors with their deadly precision.

How to paint the Fire Dragons set
- Step 1: Prime Your Model
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to your Fire Dragons model. This will provide a solid base for the subsequent layers of paint.
- Step 2: Basecoat the Armor
Using a brush, apply a basecoat of orange paint to the armor of the Fire Dragons. This will serve as the main color for their armor. For example, you can use a combination of Troll Slayer Orange and Jokaero Orange.
- Step 3: Highlight the Armor
Select a lighter shade of orange and use a smaller brush to highlight the raised areas of the armor. This will add depth and dimension to the model. Consider using Fire Dragon Bright or a similar light orange color for the highlights.
- Step 4: Paint the Helmets
Using a brush, paint the helmets of the Fire Dragons with a bright yellow color. For example, you can use Flash Gitz Yellow or a similar yellow paint.
- Step 5: Paint the Guns
Use black paint to carefully paint the guns of the Fire Dragons. For example, you can use Abaddon Black or a similar black paint.
- Step 6: Paint the Gems
If there are gems on the model, use a brush to paint them in vibrant colors. For example, you can use Waystone Green for green gems, Troll Slayer Orange for orange gems or Soulstone Blue for blue gems.
- Step 7: Add Metallic Details
Paint any metallic details on the model, such as buckles or weapon parts, with a metallic silver color. For example, you can use Leadbelcher or a similar silver paint.
- Step 8: Add Fine Details
Use a smaller brush to add fine details, such as insignias or markings, to the model. You can use colors like Abaddon Black, White Scar, or metallics to enhance these details.
- Step 9: Base the Model
Consider adding texture to the base of your Fire Dragons model to enhance its appearance. You can use texture paints or other materials to create a realistic base. For example, you can use Astrogranite texture paint and add drybrushed highlights with a lighter grey color.
- Step 10: Varnish the Model
To protect your painted model, apply a layer of varnish. Varnish comes in different finishes, such as matte or gloss. Choose the finish you prefer and follow the instructions on the varnish can for proper application.
- Step 11: Admire Your Finished Fire Dragons
Once the varnish is dry, you can proudly display your beautifully painted Fire Dragons, ready to bring devastation to the battlefield. Remember to showcase your work and share it with fellow hobbyists!
