I’m so pumped that we finally got a Dragon Kingdom. Even better it comes with The Dragon Soul, our first viable alternative to Valkyrie. I love the artwork on Dragon Soul, he appears to be an Azure Dragon from Chinese legend. There’s only four outstretched claws on his visible limbs but like Celestasia, who is also very asiatic in design, I see that Dragon Soul appears to be swallowing a gleaming Pearl of perfection. Beautiful!
We’re going to see many new team builds featuring this dragon troop once he gets into general circulation.
I’ve had a lifelong love of dragons, always. It all started as a kid when I thought dragons were real because, you know, the obvious proof was that DINOSAURS = dragons. That’s why when I first picked up the “DinoTaur” troop I immediately thought OOoo, DINOSAUR!
My 9 yr old self liked molding brontasaurus and pterodactylus etc out of pottery clay. I painted them in shades of green and grey because my kid brain figured their skins just had to be a cross between an elephant’s and an alligator’s hide. I was also secretly thrilled back then that the British legend of St. George and the Dragon was obviously a historical mis-identification of “real” dinosaur science.
With respect to the St.George type of dragon, Sylvanimora looks more like a classic green Forest dragon, or perhaps a Moss dragon. I don’t have Sylvanimora but, of course, would really like to get her. She has that wonderful Tolkien look that we’ve come to associate with dragons, both scaley and sinuous.
Can’t wait to see the future drago denizens who will populate our latest city. @Sirrian and team, thank you so much!
