    I don't play Targaryens, but my dad just bought their starter set (which is cool), and like everyone else who supports Targaryens, is understandably itching for some dragons. This is how I would personally prefer to see them done:

    I wouldn't want to see them in "baby" form either, or even included in a Targ Hero box 1. I would prefer they came in their own Dragon box set or as Heroes 2 or whatever you want to call it. They would be the adolescent form of the dragons like what was seen in seasons 4/5 of the show. I would want to see Daenarys mounted on Drogon as the largest, with the model mounted on the large base used by the likes of the NW stone thrower. The two other dragons I think should be smaller and mounted to like a flight peg on smaller bases. They would operate like cavalry, but would be able to move through terrain and other units without penalty (flying). They would all have "dracarys" as a special Order short-ranged attack that wouldn't allow armor saves, kind of like the Savage Giant "Mighty Swing", but would also cause Panic after rolling attack dice.

    As to the stats, I couldn't even begin to say, but this is roughly what I'd like to see from them. I think it's a decent compromise between disappointing baby dragons that don't quite scratch the itch, and giant dragons that are way too expensive in points and/or dollars, and take up way too much room on the table and in the army list. That was sort of the issue with the G Dubbs Oliphaunt. Awesome model, but due to high point cost, became more of a novelty that only made it into those uncommonly large games. I think it would be a shame if the dragons were taken in that direction, as cool as it is. I would want to see them on the table more often than not.

    With dragons I'm betting there will be 3 baby dragons on a base as an NCU representing the vague sort of political clout having 3 dragons gives Dany. On the field, I'm expecting (at most) adolescent Drogon for starters since he was described as the biggest of the dragons and the only one to make an appearance in the books actively doing things and fighting.

    My bet is Drogon has a nasty ranged attack (likely ignore armor saves and vicious like Pyromancers)and pretty decent melee, and maybe a 4+ save with the same rule as the Giants leading to every 2 failed saves = 1 wound.

    I magnetized all the bases for storage and sprayed the trays to a better color over the weekend.

    Hoping I’ll be able to order mine in about a month or so, as a b-day present to myself. Otherwise, I’ll likely have to wait till CMON Expo...

    I am confused by the CMON pre-orders that have popped up at Miniature Market. First Shriekers, then Unsullied, followed by Targaryen Heroes. I ordered the lot but now they sit in pre-order limbo until they are all released. My question is, how long will it take CMON to actually release the three expansions? I cannot imagine them being released all at once but am hoping it will not be over a period of months. Does CMON have a typical pattern based on the other houses?
    I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and madness...

    I seriously distrust Miniatures Market - they seem to just put anything they here even a small rumor of up for preorder, without any actual information about the release schedule

    Would be nice for cmon to put in place a release schedule so people could get a good idea of what to pre order .

    That would rely on them getting rid of Asmodee as a distributor haha

    Since Asmodee got that distribution right, pre-ordering has been chaotic...and that's me staying nice. My local store has given up on the game due to that, even if i had a "get me 2 of everything" going on, and i've had to turn to the web to get the new units.

    The online stores that post pre-orders can do so as soon as they get the product numbers, which are usually (actually, always so far) correct.

    They don't know when it's going to be released though, and that can really hold your order for a long, long time since many months can separate the release of 2 expansions you pre-ordered at the same time. That's also annoying for the store, who has a product laying in their backstore for months waiting for another one to come out...without knowing when.
