Am I the only one who has thought this, but a really efficient way of getting Dragon Princes may be to combine the SIlver Helms andthe new Dark Elf Corsairs and Cold One boxed sets
The Corsairs have quite a few "Dragonish" bits, and the Cold One knights have quite cool leg/torso combinations.
That could be a reasonable way of doing plastic dragon prince models
The Dark Elf stuff looks a little bit evil though, I haven't seen the sprues so there could be useful stuff. Even so, combining 3 kits for one unit.... You might as well just buy the metal ones by that price. And you will have heaps of unused stuff.
I smell BITZ!!
But seriously though, thats gonna be a very expensive unit, so unless you want to start a small DE force as well, which I don't, I wouldn't do it.
5000p. High Elves
are the CoK going to be all plastic or are some of their parts still metal? I know Corsairs are all plastic. Actually, you're not getting as many, but you do get a box a bit cheaper now than before.
The CoK (don't say that aloud ) are all plastic on sprues. It is going to be the new standard cavalry box, 5 plastics for that price, 35-40 AUD I think it was.
It may be less models than the 8 man (and horse) boxes, but hell 8 was a stupid number anyway. No one uses 8 cavaly in a unit. Unfortunately 6 is the most common number, so it probably works out more expensive to get 2 units worth and more wasted models, but oh well.
Unless you get 6 boxes and field 5 units ;-)
I would seriously consider purchasing these models though purely to use the nice "really" heavy armour that they seem to be wearing, and having a new "household" cavalry regiment. The cold ones I can palm-off to the jealous Lizardmen players....
This may be heresy to some of you guys, but I would prefer that my army be flexible enough that I could try out the new DE book. It seems to have a lot more flavor and character than the HE one. Nearly twice as many "useful" magic items, interesting units and traits. I think the new models look good, maybe I'll just get some CoK to use as dragon princes or as CoK. Phoenix Guard could pass as Black Guard and spearmen are spearmen, RBT's are RBTs. All I need is a hydra and to put some Cold Ones on my lion chariots and I've got a formidable DE force. I could convert some characters out of my corsairs (think those models look great) and use my wizards/necromancer models as witches (I don't like females much on the battlefield)
