View Full Version : Chaos Dragon Mount

I am trying to expand my WoC collection and was thinking about converting a Lord or Sorcerer on Dragon, would just like some thoughts on Dragons this edition specifically the Manticore.

Would you mount a lord or Sorcerer? What build would you take?

Dragons in general are dodgy this edition, but if you want to take one, I reckon Sorcerer Lord is the way to go. It gives him an extremely scary, mobile spell casting platform, and he can also go toe-to-toe with smaller units in combat. Mark of Tzeentch is a must to give the model a ward save. Runesword, Dispel Scroll, and Collar of Khorne sounds like a good enough set-up. Possibly give him the Roar too so that he can put out a tonne of shooting damage.

Manticore or Dragon? I have never used these before so yea.....

Dragon definitely. Manticore is too easy to take out from under the Lord, and if you go Sorcerer Lord you also don't want him frenzied.

There is no dragons in 8th in WoC (Galrauch is exception). Check in errata.

Uh, actually the only part that is removed is the note about including Dragons using a Hero slot. They are still listed as options to be taken by lords.

Either way, if you ever decide to convert a Chaos model on a mount, I love the Slaanesh Lord on Steed of Slaanesh model. Very cool model and easy to make cool conversions with. I made a conversion for my WOC friend with the Slaanesh Lord on a Chaos Dragon but I painted it blues and oranges and made it a Tzeentch Lord/Dragon and it turned out badass.
