Even More Dragons Are Coming to the Age of Sigmar – and Now They’ve Got Riders
The Mortal Realms have been shaken up once already by the shock return of the Draconith: last week saw the return of Krondys and Karazai, the remaining sons of Dracothion the Great Drake.
They’re big fellers, but two dragons against the combined might of Chaos, Death, and Destruction hardly feels fair. It’s lucky, then, that they’re not alone. We go now to our dragon correspondent, James Workshop, for more.
Thank you, James, you make a fair point – horses really aren’t all that and a bag of potato chips.
There’s so much we want to say about the Stormdrake Guard (and we will) but here’s the single coolest thing about them – if you take a Knight-Draconis as your general, your Stormdrake Guard units become Battleline. And you know what that means? An all-dragon army.
Just let that sink in.
Get a load of this guy. With his flaming sword* and fancy helmet with built-in moustachios, the Knight-Draconis is exactly as much of a beast on the battlefield as you’d expect from such a mighty champion of Sigmar.
It’s hard to decide which is the best detail. The Dragonith’s special hat is a strong contender – this is a kit with much more than its fair share of fancy headgear – but the tilting plate on his breast is very cool too, not least because it implies the Stormdrake Guard enjoy a spot of dragon jousting…
And we repeat, if you take him as your general, you can run an entire army of dragons.
Stormdrake Guard are Stormcast Eternals who have forged a symbiotic relationship with their Draconith mounts. Clad in thunderstrike armour and adorned with a rare Draconith beastmark, these warriors can be armed either with a drakerider’s lance or drakerider’s warblade.
Much like the larger Stardrakes or the flightless Dracoths, both of whom already fight with the armies of Azyr, Draconith are children of Dracothion – whom you’ll remember as the Celestial Drake who rescued Sigmar from the remains of the World-that-Was. He’s still knocking around, but it’s the Seraphon who’ve been hard at work incubating eggs and returning Draconith to the Realms long after Kragnos brought them to their knees.
We can’t wait to tell you more about the Stormdrake Guard – or about the many other surprises contained within the rapidly approaching Battletome: Stormcast Eternals.
* More correctly, it’s an aeonfire blade, and it hits like a train.
