The Drake Queen & the Terracotta Sentinels

Not many can claim an ancient bloodline said to be intertwined with that of dragons but the Drake Queen is one such being. Regardless of the truth to the mythos she claims as her heritage one thing has proven true, that she bears an affinity for both earth magic and for bonding with draconic beings. Her title is self given and as it stands there seem to be no links of her to any form of royalty nor does she have any lands beneath her rule, she lacks people who follow her and possesses no family to call upon for aid but even so she is a formidable leader due to the Terracotta beings that form her warbands raised from the earth with almost as much ease as one might breathe. These earthen constructs often seem to take shaped similar to the large and powerful forms of the Stormcast Eternals and it is often the case that the Drake Queen will take to battle alongside stormhosts bringing her earthen constructs and allied stormdrakes to bolster the efforts of Sigmars chosen.

Whilst she often may appear to her enemies as but a simple human woman with naught but a blade and ornate looking armour once battle begins with a flick of her wrists and a string of incantations a great Terracotta draconic beast bursts forth from the ground striking out with claws and fangs at her foes with heavy swings in great contrast to the quick and graceful movements of the queen herself.

Some of this army lore may change subject to whether I change which tabletop army will represent them :)

Fun lore! Is this supposed to be a Cathay/China homebrew faction?

Definitely massively inspired by Cathay due to my enjoyment of my Miao Ying playthrough on total war 3, tabletop wise I'm planning to use a pre-existing battletome and make them a counts-as sort of conversion project though I'm still fully settling on which faction. I was originally going to do stormcast dragons but have since realised as cool (and low model count!) as they are they may be a touch too oppressive as a pure army currently.

I guess Cities of Sigmar is also always a strong contender when Stormcast are involved. Probably the easiest way to run a bunch of miniatures from different factions in one army. They even have some dragons of their own!

True, my only concern is I already have so many CoS armies 😅 Though I suppose It would give me an excuse to run some outriders converted to look like mongolian horse archers... (I've always liked their style in Medieval 2 total war)

I will definitely have a consider of CoS though and see if I can keep it with a small model count. Hadn't thought of combining the CoS dragons and Stormcast Drakes. That could work quite nicely.
