GW: Drachen für Age of Sigmar
Die Draconith kehren in Form zweier mächtiger Vertreter, Krondys, Son of Dracothion und Karazai the Scarred zurück in die Reiche der Sterblichen.
Dragons Are Back, and They’re Going to Change The Mortal Realms Forever
We may think we’ve seen dragons fighting in the Mortal Realms – Black Dragons, Zombie Dragons, Stardrakes, and their ilk. But in truth, these are pale reflections of the ancient dragons of legend, those that predate even the coming of Sigmar and the rise of Chaos – the kin of Dracothion himself.
They may well feature in old folk tales, Aqshian cave paintings, and the odd stanza of Azyrian poetry, but what were they actually like?
Well, wonder no longer.
That’s right. The dragons – or Draconith, as they’re known in these parts – are back, and as you can see, they’re huge. A mainstay of the World-That-Was, and instrumental in the formation of the Mortal Realms and to Sigmar’s place within them, the Draconith disappeared from the realms after a certain End of Empires stamped on all their eggs. And for a long, long while, that seemed to be the end.
But now, with Sigmar’s resurgence, two lost princes of that once magnificent civilisation see a chance to return their order to greatness. The Princes’ affinity with Sigmar and the cause of the Stormcast Eternals makes their arrival a great boost for the forces of Order, who are still reeling from the effects of Be’lakor’s shroud of dark magic and the emergence of Kragnos. The Draconith are about to put the Grand Alliances of Death, Destruction, and Chaos on notice. Let’s meet them.
Krondys, Son of Dracothion
An integral member of Sigmar’s inner circle, Krondys is majestic, wise, and immensely powerful. Already among the most magically potent beings in the Mortal Realms, Krondys also bears the Regalia Fulmentaris around his neck – a piece of armour that magnifies his substantial magical abilities.
On his chest, below his armour, Krondys is marked with the twin-tailed comet – a sigil which represents the alliance between Sigmar and Draconith. Filled with sadness and shame at the fall of the ancient Draconith Empires to which he is heir, it is Krondys’ great hope that, in alliance with the Stormcast Eternals, his kin might once more rise to greatness.
Karazai the Scarred
Finding himself without an invite to Sigmar’s party, Karazai has been scouring Ghur, seeking vengeance for his scrambled kin and wreaking havoc on the forces of Destruction. When a dragon spends too long in the Realm of Beasts, though, a little of that realm may also find its way into the dragon, and thus it is that Karazai has become a bitter and violent creature – all but consumed with wrath and revenge. But doesn’t he strike a pose?
On the tabletop, the Draconith tower over the battlefield. Given their size and the huge amount of detail to work with, Krondys and Karazai will serve as extraordinary centrepieces for an army, and as fantastic painting projects in their own right. And have no doubt the return of such powerful figures will have massive, far-reaching effects in the Mortal Realms, especially for the Stormcast Eternals, who benefit from Sigmar’s pact with Dracothian.
We can’t wait to share more about these awesome new characters, and to see what they can do when they join the Stormcast Eternals in battle! Check back with Warhammer Community in future as we take a closer look at the Draconith princes and their place in the upcoming Stormcast Eternals battletome.
