View Full Version : Which dragon is larger?

25-08-2010, 12:22
Is there anybody who has one of the old plastic dragons and one of the new High Elf dragons?

If you do which one is larger, I mean body and head size, wings etc... I know one is stretched out and the other curly but a rough idea would do. Or are they about the same size?

The older one is about twice the size of the new one.

Fantastic, thanks. I was hoping they were different sizes as I want a different dragon model for Sun, Moon and Star.

So I can use the old metal one as a Sun Dragon as it's quite small, the new plastic one as a Moon Dragon (when I buy one) as it's in the middle, and the old plastic one as a Star Dragon.

There are dragons other than Star Dragons? I don't think I've ever seen the middle dragon used.

You'll see it more often in 8th.

I know this is sort of off-topic but that made me curious. Why would you see it more often in 8th?

Because a star dragon doesn't fit in a 2k army, but a moon dragon does.

Ahh, that makes sense. I should have thought of that really, although I don't expect I'll be playing many 2k games.

Even a prince with dragon armour and 100 pts of magic items is slightly too big for 2500. And when you get up around 3000, wouldn't you rather an archmage in there somewhere?

The one I'm sculptig! :p

Now, to address your question the old plastic ones are bigger, cooler--in their "uglier" way, of course-- and... well...


The new one is way too stylized--not that that's bad, it's just that I am fond of the old GW dragons' style--, and probably that why it's a bit smaller in comparison.
