Default Quick size question about some WH minis (Vampire count range)

Hi

I'm looking into doing a conversion for kroot and would like to bring in a fast, strong creature to basically drag a sled; and I was wondering about the size of these creatures:

- The Varghulf
- The Nightmare dragon
- The Cave dragon
- The Dragon from Khazad-dûm (LOTR)


Which I think have the right feel for what I wish to do.

I would greatly appreciate if you were able to let me know their dimension. thanks

EDIT:
Since the dragon would be too big or too small, how about the size of the Varghulf (how tall and what is the base size)?

I don't know the dimensions but... I think the Varghulf would be best for what you suggest.

True, well if it's about the size of a carnifex (about 2"-3" high) it should work...and this is why i'm wondering in order to have a better sense of the dimension of the above-mentionned minis.

The LoTR Dragon is too big and those stand alone Dragons are too small.

If you are looking for that kind of creature I-Kore do some nice stuff for one of their VOID armies, they have loads of Beasts of War pulling sleds or having Gun Platforms etc.

Shame for the dragon, I guess they are out unless I put 2-4 together to drag the sled...I checked I-Kore there Viridian linwe could potentially work.

Thanks for the input.

How about the, Varghulf? could someone tell me how big they are? I could always attacked 2 to the sled if needed...if it works, it would give a different feel about the wildlife of the kroot worlds

The Vargulf is about as big as a kroot ox.

Actually it's a bit bigger than a Krootox. One would probably work for you, 2 would be either just right or too much. Their pose may not work though, they're just standing there.

Thank you all...if it's more or less the size of a krootox, it could work...but now I just realize the cold one are also there and they could work too.

Decision, decision.
