I am fairly new to warhammer, and I would like other peoples opinion on the Wood elf forest dragon. Is it worth its point cost
Stone of the Crystal Mere helps (3+ Ward for rider and bearer until failed).In 7th it wasnt because it was impossible to protect... in 8th you can take common items to help protect him and make him really nasty, but whether or not its worth it probably depends on who you play rather then what you play. Against enemies with cannons all dragons in 8th are basically just fodder and are lucky to survive to turn 3, but if you arent playing an enemy with many war machines then it'll be great. Its a relatively cheap dragon and fills a huge hole in the WE army- it can actually deal out large amounts of damage against high T or good AS enemies (shock horror), just try not to get it stuck in huge ranked up units... you may never lose, but you'll never get out of the combat.
