Drakon Rider Completed

I completed the Drakon Rider last night and based him. He is magnetised for ease of use.

Here are a few photos of the completed model.

The photos tend to dampen the colour in the griffon's plumage which is brighter in real life. Next time I'll get my light box out to get a better outcome.

Happy with the figure which has a lot of sculpted detail. The most important thing was to get something that matched the existing army. I had had intentions of making up a Horde of these beasties but I may stick with just a Drakon Hero initially. Checking last night I can now put a full painted and "operational" army on the table. As I hate playing with unpainted models that is a "win" in my book.

This figure works as a Drakon Hero but trying to rank 4-6 up as a Horde would be a nightmare. I'm interested in what models people are using for Drakon units - I think I'm right in that Mantic doesn't make any models (?).

This finishes what I need to paint to play the PEGs so focus will shift back to terrain and the Sisters of Sigmar Horde.



  1. As far as I'm aware there are no current Mantic model for Drakon Riders. There were original metal models but they were as bad as all their initial Elf models (

    A significant variation in the height of the flight stands would allow you rank them up without the wings smashing together.

    1. *shudder* why did you remind me of their existence...

  2. I'm working on the 2 gw lotr great eagles with glade riders on them for a regiment. Everything fits alright with the eagles at a staggered height (one sets of wings as a V shape and the other straighter). Reckon the 2 of them are a decent size for the stats. Will be adding longer spears and a shield to the riders, and filing off the quiver.

  3. you could try the flight stands at different heights and different places on the bases (corners etc) would need some material to counter-weight them. Looks great btw!
