Crazy Ideas #3, Part 3: fester's idea Cont'd

Wizards of the Coast

Continuing from my last post...

So today, my Dragon and Undead arrived. Well done Wayland. Add me to your list of satified customer. fester will take bribes for more good PR. Ahem

So when I left you, we were talking about my list and the modelling opportunities for the army.

3 MC scale necromancers
2 MC scale shooting platforms
2 MC scale flying shooting platforms
3 40mm barrage shooting platforms

There was only one easy to choose model out of all of these.. and that was the 2 MC scale flyers.
What else flies and shoots alot? Dragons. Right, so I need a cool looking Dragon, who makes one... Hmm..
Oh, I know.

 Excellent. Wait.

Hang on..

Crap. How do I choose?

Oh, I know. Don't. That's right, time for a fluff change to support this.
Stelek was talking about a Fantasy Monster Spam list that would look AWESOME on the table, so let's do it solely with Dragons!
I think we will call this... the Dragon Knights of Calek-Nor. (copyright pending)

Now, we have a crapload of dragons. Lets count them up, with the new and improved list...
Tervigon, Catalyst, Scything Talons, Toxin Sacs

2 Hive Guard

Tervigon, Catalyst, Scything Talons, Toxin Sacs
Tervigon, Catalyst, Scything Talons, Toxin Sacs
10 Termagants
10 Termagants

Fast Attack
Harpy, TL Heavy Venom Cannon
Harpy, TL Heavy Venom Cannon
Heavy Support
Tyrannofex, Rupture Cannon
Tyrannofex, Rupture Cannon

So, thats...
3 Tervigons, 2 Harpys and 2 T-fex's...
2 Venomthropes, 2 Hive Guard
7-11 Dragons :)
So to spell this out...

Tervigons: Games-Workshop Vampire Counts Zombie Dragon
Hive Guard: Mantic Games Elf Battle-Dragon (this was much smaller than expected!)
Venomthrope: Games-Workshop Vampire Counts Blood Dragon on Winged Nightmare
Harpy: Games-Workshop High Elves Dragon
Tyrannofex: Games-Workshop Cave Drake

With that, I will need another 80-odd zombies and ghouls and skeletons to fill out the list.

I suppose at this point I should do the bad thing, and price this baby up.

2 Zombie Dragons @ 35.00
1 Battle-Dragon @ 18.00
2 Blood Dragons: @ 35.00
2 High Elves Dragons @ 27.00 
2 Cave Drakes @ 31.50
Total: 243.50 on Dragons.

Saying that, worse case, I will end up with 11 dragons on my shelf. 11. Dragons. Win.

What say you, is this too much?

It's like sometimes, your brain goes on vacation. Still , it's not as bad as your wagons ( stupid mount Franklin bottle squid? Fail .)

Don't like your new multi dragon theme. Worked better with corpse carts and the like.

We all know Dragons are magical creatures...
Do you think the Tervigons should be Corpse-Carts and have the shooty/fly-y ones be Dragons?

I am open to suggestions, as this is very much a WIP concept.
