Yea I dig them. I loved my Egrimm von Horstman, but that dragon was janky. I'll never play these models, but I will try to find a way to get one and paint it up.

Which is funny considering the old world had the worst dragon sculpts ever put into print.

The high elf dragon, dark elf dragon, and forest dragon are an insult to all creatures capable of visually perceiving shapes.

Yeah, I'm not vibing with the heads. They're kinda cool and make them look wise (and way too much like Smaug). But a good headswap will do wonders. Armor being optional is a nice touch (the sigmar comet on the chest will need to go, but its not a huge issue)

Two things that surprised me:
GW is okay with calling them dragons sometimes, not star-drakes, draconith, some copyrightable name.
The dragons don't have split tails.


The SC head has something about it that I can't quite place. Too aware and not enough beast, I guess? Taking that beard off and changing how the eyes are painted might fix it.

Their best effort at a plastic dragon, though it's disappointing to see since it's a multibuild kit it seemingly doesn't come, without some conversion legwork, with a generic option instead of "Sigmarine dragon or heavily scarred dragon."

Also they seem almost ashamed of their goofy """copyright""" name in the article now.


It's now been brought to my attention that the open mouthed head is missing almost half of it's teeth (No wonder I thought it looked a bit off) and that both have the Sigmar birthmark sculpted into their chest.

So yeah, not very interested at this point. I might do a lot of conversion work, but I lack the skill of major resculpting work to the point of mimicking the style of missing teeth to the point it wouldn't be very obvious.

I feel like it should be longer or more angular.

Hmm, yeah now that you mention it the stormcast armour one's face is giving me Spyro 1 npc vibes. Not the worst vibes per se, but a little clashing with the rest of the model's art style.

The scarred one's muzzle looks long enough, but the lack of teeth makes him look kinda like a hillbilly or something once I became aware of it.

They're not dumb brutes, so it makes sense that they look fairly aware?

Honestly, I'm loving Karazai's backstory. Love the scarring. That'll be the one I go for.

They are not gaps, they are folds and the painter decided to emphasize them for some reason.

The lines that coincidentally cross the joints in the fingers of the wings are not folds... but gaps? Okay

You can see them better in some of the other pics. It's apparently where there are joints in the wings

Yeah, if you look at the top shot of the red dragon's wing, you can see they are folds. Just from a functional stand point, I'm not seeing how they could be separate parts.

Weird design choice for sure, and the paint job does certainly make them pop out.

Think you need to go to Specsavers there mate...

They're gaps. That is obvious. It is super clear when you look at the innermost membrane which you'll note lacks the gaps as it is a single piece (presumably).

This is your lucky day. Grimtuff is speaking bollocks, the seams are nowhere near the areas he circled. Majority of the wings is one part. If it were a seam, you could see it from the reverse shot. Reverse shot shows a clear fold instead.

Wings are definitely intentional. It's an odd design rather than an assembly flaw, but you're welcome to dislike it all the same.

I absolutely LOVE this dragons, but I already love dragons overall.

Sure, it is not saying much; Old World serpentine dragons were from not bad but nothing to write about (black dragons) to absolute disgraces (metal gak dragons).

But Karazai the Scarred? GOOD STUFF.

Each to their own, but, are you going to compare the gak metal worms? really?

The Old World dragons look cool in TW, but they don't compare at all with the original sculpts, or rather, the original sculpts don't compare at all with the TW models.

Those are folds you'd expect on real membranous wings, you can see that the lines don't appear on the back of the wing...

Of course, you can always wait and see the actual sprue.

Eh greenstuff has one issue. It's solid connection.

Gw promo models are generally not glued up fully.

you won't expect them in real wing, whatever animal has such straight lines and the membran in that angel has a problem (membranous wings do not bend in a 45° angle straight across)
and those are also on the back, just not as visible in the middle (otherwise they parts won't be glued together)

but I can be wrong of course so lets wait for the sprue

Regarding the wings it's also worth remembering that the the painted models are resin prints and don't necessarily go together in the same way as the final production plastic.

Seems incredibly generic, especially since I'm sure these will be $120-150ish.

When I'd initially heard about dragons I assumed I'd be spending money on new stormcast cavalry, glad I can save some money.
