Hey, I was interested in starting a new army, and I wanted to do one with a really beefed up Lord choice. Reading through the Army Books, a Chaos Dragon lord caught my eye.

I've searched through both the US and CA Games Workshop sites, but I have not been able to find one on there anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find one?

the model is older... If you're going to do one, id convert it.

Hmmm, what base dragon do people usually work off of when converting?

Baudros?
As in the one egrimm van horstmann rides.
Well if you have a spare 60 then go ahead and mail order the bits so long as they havent phased out the damned thing.

Plastic dragon, get 2 combine.
But get hold of a large monster base as the one it comes with is a stupid plastic thing which is much too high and looks really crappy.

If your on about Galrauch the riderless one he's far more affordable but his heads are in the wrong place for using his breath weapons.

Your best bet is to go for either the plastic one(like I stated earlier) or to simply go for a dragon you think is cool and convert your own chaos dragon.
The plastic dragon is the biggest and easiest to work with due to it being plastic, its also the cheapest.

The old plastic dragon of course, not the new HE one.

To which army does the old plastic one belong? Is it just a generic riderless mount?

It was the (second edition I believe) Egrimm Von Horstmann (but with better spelling) miniature for Chaos.

A topic close to my heart. I used the archive wood elf dragon with a mounted slaanesh champion on its back, and at the head of my army he pretty much crushes everything. In fact, I only use him in tournaments and take a friendly army in regular games.

I'm working on a Galrauch variant for my chaos lord. I gave up finding a lord that could sit on him, though. It would require sculpting a throne or something. So I looked around in my bits box instead and came across a WH40k wych.

The plan is to have her standing on the dragon instead of sitting. She looks agile enough to pull it off.

This is the picture of my converted Chaos Lord on a Dragon. The model was bought for 11.99 and I pinned the neck to support the Slaneesh Lord. I havn't painted it yet to how I want it but it's a basic idea on what you can do for little money.
