I believe all the HE dragons use a chariot base, which is 50mm x 100mm. I know at least the Star Dragon uses this size, but the others may actually use monster bases.

They all use the same base of 50mm x 100mm (they are made from the same box actually).

There are two HE dragons, one on 50x50 and one on a 50x100, so its really up to yourself - but the BRB says 50x50 :)

Well actually there are 3 HE Dragons, Sun, Moon, Star.

I know that the kit my friend bought to make his Star Dragon came with a 50x100 base, but I never inquired about the other dragons being made from the same kit.

Holy crap, Red Scourge is right! The 50 x 50 dragon looks like a special character model though...

The rule normally is, the base is the one the model kit comes with.

The old dragons were on a monster base 50x50mm, and as rebasing is usually a pain, you might want leave them there.

Model-wise, there's no difference between the three High Elf Dragon statlines. The miniature doesn't change, any more than you use a different miniature to represent a Noble or Prince. That's not what The Red Scourge is talking about.

Model-wise there's the current High Elf Dragon kit on a 50x100mm base and the previous Prince Imrik who was on the plastic snakey dragon, on a 50x50mm base (the one linked to by Zuey). In addition, the Wood Elf dragon is on a 50x50mm base, as is the Dark Elf Black Dragon and the Chaos Dragon.

Condottiere, is that the rule in Warhammer? I remember there being an official list of base sizes for 6th edition, but I'm not sure what the case is in 7th edition.

In any case, the dragon I use didn't come with a base, so that option's no use. For that matter, neither did two of my Chariots or one of my Griffons. :)
