I hope the same, but mostly cause I want a dragon army, not a "dudes on dragons" army.

I feel like there must be something wrong with my eyes because I feel like the stormcasts look too big to be riding the dragons.

Like there must be something weird going on, I've still got my Lord Celestant on Dracoth and he looks fine, so why would these guys not when I assume the dragons are the same size or bigger?

I really like the new stormcast I've seen and have bought so far but I'm not sure on these guys, will need to see in person.

War Horses could carry a fully armoured knight, and they’re much daintier than any Dragon of at least directly comparable size.

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.


Couldn't say it any better. The Dragons themselves are great, but the sce stick out like a sore thumb

Im reconsidering either not getting Yndrasta now, I mean she would look rad with reptilian wings rather than angelic. Or maybe just to convert her wings. For OCD sake.
Would fit my deathcast theme too.
The poses of these dragon are all I could have asked for so dynamic and elegant. Why couldnt they have done something similar with the big one is beyond me.

I'm weirdly not a fan of these. I think it's the flight stands and the Stormcast riders really making them "meh" to me.

Would look far better if they'd gone for a 'breath weapon' attachment so the dragons could look like they're strafing the ground or some ruins that serve as an attachment point towards the tails or talons. The Stormcast riders could have stood for getting something like a breastplate, pauldrons, bracers, and greaves rather than "full plate head to toe".

People is freaked out because the dragons have lips: you might think on dragons like theropod, beakless dinosaurs, but even those are considered to have lips like lizards too. Crocodiles and other reptilians on fiction settings don't have them, but I love the fact of them having lips.

Also, the heads of the dragon princes make them look like they came from a Don Bluth production, and I'm all down for it.

You don't like Sigmarines on dragons? maybe it's because of the silly helmets, but that's why they have optional bare heads, and you can always use Demigryph Knights shields, or get rid of the dawi face from the shields, and paint them on other colours rather than gold.

And fluff-wise, we have to thank Seraphon for this, so I expect to have a proper reward when our BT releases.

Because this guys are much smaller. The brothers will, by the look of it, be on 160 mm bases. I expect the Stormdrakes to be Varanguard size.

Varanguard come on 75x42mm bases.
Dracoths are on 90x52mm bases.

There's a 175x105mm(used by the Mortek Crawler) and a 120x92mm(Mortarchs, for example, have this one) base.

I'm thinking that the 120x92mm base is the one this will get.

Nah, for example Archaon mount is huge, has a fat body and limbs in comparison yet that kit is packed with dynamic.That kit is old too.

I must admit that my first thought on seeing how big the storm cast riders were compared to the dragons meant that my spare high elf dragon rider would look great on it.

I think that another problem with the riders is that they are stiff as hell. Gw already showed that they can make rider dynamic and look like they are in motion. Wonder why they didn't go it for these

I think they are not so much stiff as conveying a sense of power and might. Plus they appear to be in more of a "heroic pose" as opposed to battle charging pose (least a couple of them).

I think its different to say the blissbarb riders where they are clearly going for an action battle pose and an elfish (warped) sense of agility.

Stormcast aren't elves, they aren't dancing on their mounts, they are solid and stoic.


I'm sure if GW re-did the green dragon for Sylvaneth (old Wood Elves) there'd be a pair of dragon surfing aelves atop

War Horses could carry a fully armoured knight, and they’re much daintier than any Dragon of at least directly comparable size.

Different animals have different weight-carrying capacity, and flying animals aren't well known for carrying any sort of weights. As it's a fantastic creature laws of biology clearly dont apply, but the riders look too big and chunky for the size of the baby dragons to me. I never liked the tiny hawks the elves sat on taking 1/2 of their backs either if that helps.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Mostly the same- I'd love some nice dragons for RPG purposes. Saddles and Sigmarines don't fit.

Don't necessarily mind dragon-riders here or there, but gimme some lithe, unarmored techno-barbarians if you're going to go that route.

I still have my fingers crossed for some more Kruleboyz releases (Wolf, Gnashtoof or vulture riders please!) but time is quickly ticking away on those being revealed. If they stick to the August release stated earlier by Warcom we only have the 21st or 28th of the month for them to be released, assuming that we get all the new stuff released at once.
