It would work, but I guess that you're opponents won't like it! There's not much in only 500 points that can hurt a dragon, but it could be fun to try out just to see the look on the other guys face;)

Do it and shed your tears when that little mage is shot down :)

That list will be incredibly easily beaten. Shoot the mage and whatever is left of the archers. Although it would be fun. Lowest points i have ever used a dragon mage was 1000 and he dominated the field. You have to use it as agressively as possible to make him work though.. in my experience.
Good luck

Even if you shoot down that mage his list isn't incredibly easy...you still have a dragon to deal with if he passes his leadership! Slowing down any movement, burning, then charging at the last second.

it will work but your opponent will be singing curses (unless he is packing an ancient steg).

What do you really expect your opponents to have in a 500 point game that can deal with a dragon?

So the dwarves and Empire are covered, assuming they're willing to drop 1/5 their points on a war machine.

How about everyone else?

A dragon is pretty grand at low pts levels. Be warned that as you increase game sizes then you are going to have more problems w/ the little dragon mage and may find it to be a bit of a points sink!

Enjoy the look of terror in the sub 2K world with that thing! :)
