Size of dragons..?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm considering a Reaper dragon as stand-in for FW  "Warpfire Dragon". Description says the kit is about 5" tall, so I first thought about 77328: Cinder or 77279: Narthrax

But the FW dragon is on a quite large scenic element, maybe they're too large, and something smaller would be more similar in size. For example, the Pathfinder Dragon (which is also a great model).
My only concern, is that it could look a tad small next to the most recent GW miniatures...

 

Advice, suggestions, and a pic of the Pathfinder Dragon next to a Stormcast would be greatly appreciated :)

I don't have Stormcast, but I do have Space Wolves.  Would that help?

 

Space Wolf Grey Hunter next to Pathfinder dragon:

Comparison with Cinder (Please forgive the screwdriver holding him(her?) up and the missing wing.  I have not assembled the model so I had to snap the picture fast before it fell apart!):

Is a warpfire dragon something any AoSkirmish faction can take or is it strictly Stormcast dudes?

 

(A Dread Saurian is strictly Lizardmen...)

 

It looks like the forgeworld model is shown on a chariot base. Bloodhowl if you had a chariot base that would be quite a useful comparison.

 FYI, forum rules about commerce prohibit direct links to commercial sites - you might want to change that link... Simply right click on the image of the dragon on the page, select view image, and then edit the link to point to the URL of the image itself.

I tried to post a pic of both dragons and a chariot base before we were interrupted by server maintenance, but server went down as I clicked "post" and was unable to get the picture loaded until now. Here you go, hope it helps!

Thanks Bloodhowl, that definitely helps.

Warpfire Dragon is Chaotic, I believe, so I think it can't be taken by Stormcasts...

He might be a little large, but I wonder if Verocithrax (77361) would be a good stand-in for the warpfire dragon. He matches some of the gnarled and twisted look.
