I think the Archmage on a moon dragon will suffer from the same flawes as a normal dragon mage. That is, anything that so much as sneezes at your mage will blow your way too expensive mage off the dragon (bow fire/magic missiles). Sure, you have a 4+ wardsave on the archmage now, but are you really willing to risk so many points on such a fragile model?

a mage with a sword. Just give it up and get a lord on a star dragon.
