This vehicle, designated 'Noctus', displays a flam pattern around the turret-weapon mount, indicating that its commander is both a senoir member of the Promethean Cult and a highly accomplished artificer.
That's what I found. I like that idea but as always, GW only put one explcation... anyone knows more about that??? Or what do you think would be the other possibilities???

Thanks!

Whoa, that's quite cool. If there turns out to be no rules for it, you could try using the Rino repair rule, the one where they can fix their vehicle to represent his artificer skills. I don't know about promethean cultist rule, though.

Nothing more to know or any other possibilities.

It's just that the Sallies like Flame livery due to their culture etc, so they sometimes use different flame markings to display different meanings. Just like a Guard tank might paint an ace symbol on their tank, write messages on it, put on kill markings etc.

Needs no rules or anything.

I guess he's trying to say, orks would write...

"Yarrikk liks botem'

It signifies leaders and what not? So other can identify who's tank it is...

Here's some other stuff I've been discussing around with Sallies players:

Armour:
Bravery --> flames on chest (on the hearts)
Sure-footed --> flames on the greave(s)
Sharpshooter --> flames on right hand
Good CC fighte --> flames on left arm
Tactical Excellence --> flame on helmet

Vehicle:
Skillful gunner --> flames on the sponson (or weapon of choice depending of the vehicle)
Skillful Driver --> flames on the front
Shillful Commander --> flames on turret

What ya think about that?

They all seem fair assumptions to me.

With the whole flame thing, I'm planning on getting Legion of the Damned Flame Shoulder Pads for the right shoulder of my Command Squad etc.
