Default which Dragon

For the first time ever, I recently unleashed a High Elf Star Dragon. By far and ahead, it was absolute devastation.

T6, S7 means it can take the damage and dish it out just as well. It devoured a Dragon Ogre whole, and most of another one on the side. It was hungry.

Now, the problem with the Star Dragon is that it's very, very expensive. There's just about no way to avoid it, either; even with minimalist kitting, you're looking at a 500+ point model. In a decently sized game, that's not too bad but in anything less than 2500pts, that really cuts off your points elsewhere. Not to mention that with the High Elves, you have to structure your tactics around the Dragon as well. A lone Star Dragon will likely just get destroyed by War Machines or something else very nasty; combine the Star Dragon with a charge from some Dragon Princes, and anything will drop.

"In the eyes of the Elves of Ulthuan there exists no fear, only grim determination.

Until one has witnessed them in combat, one cannot comprehend the power that they possess."

I'm not a fan of big flying monsters in the game but then I rarely play over 2250 pts so its too big a risk for a general.
That being said I really like the look of a well converted zombie dragon.

Best looking is probably the Wood Elf Forest Dragon. For destructive power, probably a High Elf Star Dragon. Of course my Carnosaur would eat any dragon for breakfast.

I personally have a soft spot for a good old zombie dragon.

Please Help Level My Daemons. See which one will level faster, will Papa Nurgle get his way, or will the Prince of Pleasure rule?
