As the battle draws to a close, the day in nearly won. Knights dismount, removing their battered helms and breathing in the smoking air. Suddenly, a shadow falls across the battlefield, accompanied by the deafening beat of massive wings... and the fight is far from over. This fall, all of Europe shall tremble before the might of three new creatures!
BattleLore: Dragons, the upcoming expansion for the beloved strategy game BattleLore, brings to bear the awesome power of one of the most iconic figures in the fantasy genre. These majestic creatures promise to lay waste to their foes as they fly unhindered about the battlefield.
Silence falls across the forest, and the air smells acrid as small creatures scurry for cover. In these woods, all life knows better than to be around when the Wood Wyvern is flying over head. Armed with a vicious bite and toxic breath, the wyvern is able to poison anything it faces. As the venom courses through the veins of those who stand before it, horrible spasms wrack the victim. The wyvern waits mere moments before the afflicted fall dead at its feet.
Mirroring the deadly effectiveness of its woodland brethren, the Ice Drake descends from the frozen north. Able to fly over a battlefield with ease, this fell creature can unleash the power of the glaciers - freezing enemies in place! While not harmful in and of itself, frozen foes find themselves unable to move or act, making them a perfect target for the Ice Drake’s bite or its allies.
The strongest of the reptilian forces is the Fire Dragon. The gouts of flame issuing from this creature’s mouth are so hot, armor is no protection. As it flies from one side of the battlefield to the other, fire rains from the sky and sets unit after unit ablaze. Once it tires of cooking the enemy, the Fire Dragon has a vicious melee attack to dispatch any remaining fighters.
Make sure to check back, as we will be previewing these beasts in more detail in the weeks to come!

Sounds great...but I am hoping it is priced a little nicer than heroes...40$ was kinda nuts for that set....especailly when you compare it to games like Pegasus where ti is jam packed for about the same price...easy does it FF .
Very nice! I wonder if there are different costs associated in using different dragons or if that is compensated for in the Mana that they use.
I was wondering where the skull on Frostmourne came from. Now I know. An Ice Drake.
