Background Story:
In ages past, the ancient Dragons who were near death flew to the land of Northrend to die. To this day there are entire Dragon graveyards that are littered with massive petrified bones and skulls. When Ner'zhul the Lich King took control of Northrend, he used his powerful magics to raise the ancient Dragon skeletons from the dead. Now the skeletal Dragons radiate cold power and think of nothing other than serving their dark master. Frost Wyrms have a cold-based breath weapon that can do shattering damage to enemies both on the ground and in the air.

Didn't know how I felt about this at first since I was very used to the classic look, but comparing it with the regular dragons in game made me realize how much of an improvement this is over the original in about every way.

First off actually having all four legs is nice, and I appreciate the inclusion of the classic wing style as an option as well!

The glow not being team colored works well to convey the unit's focus on frost magic and slowing/shutting down buildings significantly better than the original team colored crystal did. Fine work you have done here!

This model looks great... but her wings seem to be roughly impaled on her back and do not look like a single whole with the rest of the structure, it seems to me it would be nice to mount them on the sides so that the work of these wings seems ALIVE (pardon the pun)

-The dragon lacks the upper portion of a wing humerus. That is the arm bone that connects to the shoulder. Instead, the wings encompass the upper portion of the thoracic vertebrae (upper-central spine). I am going to ask you to fix this to at least look like it's anatomically correct from a fantasy/video game perspective. Funnily enough, you can look at dragon anatomy on Google where two types of humerus are connected to one scapula, one for the front leg and the other for the wing. You could probably elongate the shoulder attach the missing wing humerus, and then peel off the leathery remnants of the wing from the spine.
