Have thought about doing a tzeentch lord/sorcerer on chaos dragon, and have decided that if the dragon looked like the asian style of dragon it would look pretty interesting and different from the normal westeren "roar, bite, breath fire oh dear here comes a knight" style dragon, does anyone know which company, shop, or site I could get a hand on one?

As far as I'm aware, most Asian dragons are wingless (or at least, that's the way they appear in most illustrations I've seen). Bearing that in mind I'd suggest getting one of the old S-type dragons and puttying over the holes for the wings, perhaps also convert the fore-limbs to resemble legs instead of arms.

You could probably use that cave drake thing from the LOTR range as a starting point.

I agree that the older S-style dragons would be a good starting point without their wings. Asian dragons (again, based on what I've seen) tend to be longer and thinner, you'd just then need to model some details on and perhaps replace the arms.

This could look something like that:

Coolminiornot has a trio of dragons that might fit the bill.

this is a 54mm scale model so it will look relatively imposing on the firld and has that asian dragon feel to it

You can find a very nice asian style dragon not that thin being sculpted for casting in this plog (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=229660&page=27) on warseer itself by WarplockMonkey. In post 536 you will find the latest update.
