Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

Now that's more like it.

These completely avoid the Pixar/Jim Henson Company look of the bigger ones, look dangerous, the the riders are good.

I can't imagine how many you get in a box, and they're probably going to cost a gold-plated arm and a silver-plated leg, but these are very nice. And huge!

I wonder if they'd be two to a box? Or more likely just one? Either way, very well done models. I'm still not completely on board with the dragon heads, but they're not awful. Maybe they'd be better without eyebrows

I feel like it’s going to be a Character box, and then two to a box (like the Giant became).

I’m hoping the wings on the spod level ones are freely mix and match for some variety.

It's a minor thing, but I appreciate they gave both a male and female commander helmet option. At least, I assume the female helmet with the drake on it is for a leader (the "normal" male ride has a plain stormcast head, not a ornate one)

I think the best part of these is their simplicity -- they're not covered in bits and bobs. Just the belly plate, saddle, and rider. Makes it easy to do your own thing and go wild with painting. It's one of the reason I like painting things like Carnosaurs or Terradons and the like for Seraphon. They just take very little effort to look amazing with minimal skills involved.

Speaking of Seraphon, I wonder how easily one of those starlizard heads would fit onto the dragon...

Anyone else get Smaug vibes off the dragons? Specifically, the Rank/Bassin The Hobbit version? Maybe its the hair

Maybe 2 a box for £50 - 60 I would get that.

Possibly the best Stormcast release with the new updates.

Also, it's probably too much to hope, but I'd love it if the saddle wasn't integrated into the dragon, mould-wise. Would open the door to more options for conversions.

The real issue would be the armor. Unless you wanted just Stormcast-themed wild dragons.

Though, I guess you could file off the sigmar face and replace it with something else

Oh come on, I was trying to concentrate on my Kruleboyz army and then they do this to me.

I do fear the prices though.

SCE spoil the model, on the up side, you can make a SCE army that has less Sigmarines than other elements.

Do you think the stormcast drill that hole in the wing so they can attach the chestplate strap? Looks painful :(

still unsure how I feel about the Dragons heads, but since I have been swapping out the SCE Helmets with the new models I am very happy with them.

All Dragon Army . Surely its not just to sell lots and lots of really big models

Elves... those are that blind, soulless creatures with bat wings and snake bodies who're riding on clouds, taming ugly sea monsters and worshipping evil sorceresses and giant cows, right? What dragon with clear mind would associate with that lot?

on the forum. Obviously

I really don't get the appeal behind the riders. They look silly to me. A big bulky bloke sitting on a small dragon looks comical, imo.
If they had lighter armor I suppose it would be ok, but it really looks as though they just got a custodes and dropped in on a dragon's neck.

The dragons themselves are fine.
