Where can you buy an Empire Army Imperial Dragon? Where is a run down of its special abilities? Has anyone ever fielded one? What does it look like?

The only way to field the Imperial Dragon at present is by using Karl Franz w/ it as hit mount. I've never used it, as I can't justify that expense in my army, preferring more units instead. As for abilities, its a pretty standard dragon, with S4 breath, IIRC.

I'm not sure if there is a model, the rules are under the rules for KF found in the empire army book- I think he has the same stats/rules as a Star dragon possibly, though I've not got the book to hand

One way to buy it is to get the HE Dragon and Karl Franz with a HE-playing mate that wants a non-Eltharion Griffon-rider, he takes the Griffon and the HE rider, you take Karl Franz and the Dragon.

Sounds like a good idea. Well done that man!

Of course the real problem is finding a HE player that wants a Griffon over a Dragon ;)

There used to be a metal Imperial Dragon model way back in the day and I think it`s still GWs largest metal model. The wings were so big that you had to make the membrane your self using aluminium foil. We aren`t allowed to post stats, so I would advise you to have a look in the Empire AB.
In 5th ed. everybody could field one and it had pretty much the hardest stat line in the game.

I think I'm still safe telling you that it's stats are "Mostly sixes".

Thanks for all the info. I have the stats but I guess I overlooked the breath weapon info. I barely noticed that KF could take a dragon. I searched the web and found nothing on an imperial dragon but I might by a HE dragon just to have it if its cool looking. Plus I hate when people threaten to use a dragon so I want to be smilingly smugly as I reply go ahead dude and I'll bring mine.

they wish.

I don't think there has ever been an empire dragon, karl franz has always been sold on the griffon instead, but theres plenty of suitable dragons to put him on
