Check the Codex Eldar. Those dragons are about 1 day old ;-)
Their stats are not so good. Also, those units should not be to powerfull.
They are fast and shooty (like Jetbikes) and can assault the enemy. I
considered allowing every stand the hero ability (20 points each) which
perfectly fits the codex (Exodites can include a lot of mighty heroes) but
decided against it as Ork Boarboyz could theoretically consist of 100%
Heros (no basic troop or champion) in W40k and are not allowed Hero in
IMHO the other option (assault and space wolves abilities) does not really
