    off course it's a viable option the big problem is how do you protect the rider on top of the dragon. magic and shooting will eventually hit your highborn which either means spending a lot more points on magic defence and on armour upgrades for your lord leaving little room to get the offensive stuff.
    I agree the fluff for dragons is great and the modelling opportunities are going to be awesome but it's a pretty heavy investment point wise and Might not bring enough to the table to be worth it.

    Cheers Jayz

    in 2000 point games, expensive choices are less viable. in 3000pt games however, it isn't so much of an issue.

    personally, i think if you bring a dragon to a 2000pt game, either the rest of your character line-up is going to suffer, your troop choices are going to suffer, or both. You really need to figure out your battle stratagy for your entire army, and how this paticular character would fit into it.

    Typically, i prefere the *what characters support my troops* as opposed to *what troops support my character* approach. while characters play a vital role in the battles, i think they take a backseat to the troops.

    I have played with the dragon and it is a fun model to run on the field. I don't think it is tournament quality though, as it takes up so many points and leaves not enough room for other units. In the tournaments I play you really need the versatility to go up against all the different armies out there, and tying up so many points in one character for this army just isn't a great option in my opinion.

    I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
