Monstrous unit ideas for Dragon Rampant?

Recommended Posts

For my son's Christmas present, I'm letting him pick out an army for himself for Dragon Rampant. He's going with a monster theme. He's already picked out a couple Bones Burrowing Horrors, three Beastmen, and possibly some Arachnid Warriors and Archers. Goremaw is also going to have a place in his army. In general he's trying to stay away from humanoid figures (I'll probably get him a few more beastmen just to give him some more options), and he's got no interest in undead or aberrations - he just wants monsters. I believe the plan does call for some hordes of vermin as well. I'd prefer to stick with Bones as much as possible and definitely avoid metal if possible - these are going to be thrown in a box and carted around all over the place, metal figures would be chipped and wrecked in no time.

 

In theory he's picking out his own units but I want to be able to offer him some ideas, and I also want a couple surprises in there when he opens it up on Christmas day. ::): So! Anyone have any suggestions?

 

And for that matter, if you have good suggestions for other themed armies and units, feel free to toss those in... He's going to need opponents. ::): Especially for mounted units!

 

Thanks all!

It might be, but I think I'll grab it anyway and he can decide if he wants to include it. Would make a good leader for his army, I think. ::): Thanks!

Bathalians he might go for as foot soldiers. Good idea. ::): And the dragon tortoise definitely has potential as well. ::): I'm pretty sure he won't want the sharkman, because it's too human, but I'll suggest it to him to see what he thinks.

 

Thanks! ::D:

Some of those D&D minis blink dogs would make a good unit to give the invisibility rule to.

The Pathfinder Jabberwock could be neat as well, especially if he's familiar with the poem.

      I had the opportunity to play some Dragon Rampant last weekend at Huzzah, a convention in Portland, Maine.  I decided that it was time to get these figures off the painting sticks and into play.  DR calls for 6 figure units for war beats and cavalry, but these rats are small enough that I decided that 6 bases was a nice unit of measure.  The two large swarms are single piece castings (01-045 from Iron Wind Metals), and the outrider bases are the DF-106s, originally scultped by Julie Guthrie.
       
      This was a speed painting exercise; total brush time was just under an hour, and they were, as you can tell, mostly dry brushed.

      I spotted this big dragon/dino thing on a blog page. Can anyone ID the maker or source? I would like to find one.
       
       
      The blogger said he found it at a garden store. Spoilered for huge 1600x1280 picture.
