Backstory on the Dark Eldar Dragon Rider plus voting!

I came up with an interesting back story for the Dragon Rider I entered into the MWC contest here:
BTW GO VOTE FOR ME I have 2 entries! #5 & #6


I envision him as kind of Dark Eldar Large Game Catcher. Someone that on raids to exotic worlds captures strange beasts for sale or trade when he gets back to the Dark City. He sells these beasts to the wealthy elite for their private eclectic zoo's and personal hunting grounds. In doing so he aligns himself with the most wealthy and powerful Kabals and always gets a favor in return somewhere down the road. It might be an odd job, but eh, it's a living

During raids he only uses the biggest most bad ass of all the beasts he's ever captured ad his personal steed. With the help of a Coven that he did an unusual and exceptional job for a few centuries ago, was able to augment the beast with cybernetics and a neural transmitter that allows him complete control and a telepathic mind link. Only the best of the best for this guy.


This is my second Entry in the contest, Entry #5

This is an older conversion of mine that I recently blew the dust off in light of the new Necron Army coming out soon.

Basically he's a seated Destroyer Lord, but I wanted him to be hardwired into a throne rather than just a Torso mounted in a skimmer and I wanted to add a more Egyptian feel to him, aka Tomb Kings in space!

He is a combination of destroyer and warrior pieces cut into new poses. I custom built the throne and staff from sheet styrene and used a WFB empire wizard hat for this Egyptian style helm. I also used a WFB wizard staff topper as a chronometron. If you look closely you'll see a Necron symbol as the back for the chair.


  1. Nice work! I thought that Destroyer Lord looked like your style, I like it! The DE Dragon Lord got my vote. Keep up the great work!

  2. Holy shat, you're the guy that made that Lord on a throne? I saw that years ago, that thing is class!

  3. Not only does your Necron Destroyer Lord have his Sunday Best on but you did once again when your wrote this post. Thanks for sharing your creation with the rest of us and for continually inspiring us with your work. I hope you don't mind me giving you a shout out in my weekly top x. Cheers and thanks for sharing.
