Looks really cool actually. I'd like to see your version of a crusader now How would transports look??

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

@ Lightmonkey - im aiming for a low tech race so i think 2 cannons and a firey breath should work just fine ;)

@ Lord Reevan - version of a crusader? i dont think there will be such thing, unfortunately,
How would transports look??
i can imagine, the people on a dragon holding on for life! maybe like a chariot type thing... or just grabbing onto a chain and hopeing they dont die.

i like the idea of chains and maybe they can can swing of and litrally jump into battle so can get mixture of leaping and charging rule when "disembarking" i think that idea looks really good......... but also slightly like a krootox

i was brainstorming some ideas up for a HQ choice and i came up with this.

HQ
Name Pts WS BS S T W I A Ld Sv
Warlord 80 6 4 5 5 3 3 3 10 4+ / 5+ inv

Wargear
Heavy Rune Armour- Gives the wearer a 3+ save -20 Pts
Runes of Protection- Improves the wearer's Inv save by 1 or gives the model a 5+ Inv save. -20 Pts
Dragon eye's- (+1 BS) -10 Pts
Instict's - (+1 I) -15 Pts
Dragon Skin - (+1 T) -10 Pts
Wings- The model moves like jump infantry -30 Pts
Spines- (+1 A) -10 Pts
Dragons blood- Regeneration -30 Pts

May take up to 2 weapons and the Breath of the Ancients
Weapons
Breath of the Ancients- Gives the model a flamer weapon that it can use in the shooting phase -5 Pts
Rune Sword - Power Weapon, May take 2 for rending -10 Pts
Rune Glaive - Power Weapon, May be used a a one shot weapon in the shooting phase. range:24" S-8 AP-2 Assualt 1 -10 Pts

so what do you think? i tries to balance it by kind of following the stats and upgrades of a hive tyrant, added afew extra points on some things though

-Riandro

EDIT:added that range

It's really good! one thing though. what's the range of the glaive? and by one shot do you mean it can only be used once per game? Bar that thing That's really impressive. I'd love to see a model for it

what's the range of the glaive?

oh yeah, i forgot that ill add it in, i think 24" will be fair and yeah it can only be used once per game, you will loose the weapon completely after you have thrown it though. all to balance out the b[powerful hit
