Hey guys. I was just thinking the other day when I was looking at my lists and decided I want to make a list with a big point sink model for fun. It probably wouldnt be the most strategic but would be fun to field a mammoth of a character on the board.
My question to you guys is which big point model is most effective, at least that you guys have seen. Im thinking either a cool converted lord on a dragon, Archaon, or Kholek Suneater.
A tooled up Chaos Lord of Khorne with Axe of Khorne, Armour of Damnation, Shield and Favor of the Gods on a Chaos Dragon. It is actually a bloody good line breaker as the Mark of Khorne affects the Chaos Dragon as well granting it an extra S6 attack.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
Yes he is. However, just watch out for his frenzy. He is great early on in the game, but it becomes a pain late in the game when you can't charge what you need to in order to win.
I tried a Sorcerer on a Dragon my last game, and he did really well. The guy on top died turn 5 due to some bad luck, the Dragon on his own was still awesome.
Whatever Dragon you use, I highly recommend the Collar of Khorne for the MR(2). He always a target for magic, and it helps a lot.
Cool. Good to hear a dragon model is a solid model to field.
I know that chaos fluff says that all chaos dragons are double headed but Im not a big fan of the metal dragon we have. Multi-metal and with how its done i can see it falling over and having pieces break off and whatnot. I was hoping to convert another armies dragon. Possibly the HE or DE one. In general would I get a lot of crap for fielding another armies dragon because its not double headed or its not "my armies dragon"?
Obviously Im gonna do some conversion work on it though to make it look more chaos looking.
Surprisingly, the Galraunch model doesn't really fall over at all. The fact it sits diagonally across the base, and has extra support too prevents it. Bit break off every now and then, but hey, I LOVE that model
Converting up another Dragon is ok, and by all means acceptable. The Chaos one is actually a special character, so in a way, we don't really have a model. I would however, find a way to give it two heads. You want those breath weapons, and each head gets one. If you only had one head, the rules won't allow you to use both.
Aside form that, it might look weird having a chaos guy ride on a HE unconverted Dragon - too 'good' looking, you know? Have a crack though, no sweat,
Sdefreit. I was thinking of using the Hydra as a chaos dragon, If you only use two heads, green stuff over where the heads used to be and order some dragon wings. I looks like it might make a cool chaos dragon. I've not tried it but it looks like it could work
Hey that hydra idea is really good. Made me expand my thoughts on what model to use and thought it might be cool to use the lord of the rings ring wraith flying mount.
If its possible to special order another one of the mounts heads I could use some green stuff to make it double headed. Might look pretty cool.
what yall think?
Sounds good but you cant order the heads seperatly unfortunatly. I was thinking of using ringwraiths as sorcerers with the lore of shadow.
are they to scale? I was under the impression LoTR was slightly smaller?

LoTR miniatures are generally smaller. Haven't saw a Ringwraith mini yet but I'd say it is smaller than WHFB counterpart. Its a great idea though. Just not sure on the scale.
The Hydra conversion sounds good! If you use it that way, you'd have spare heads for a second dragon!
