Finally got some pics up of my first rough riders. Up first is the RR Sgt:
- Horse - WHF Empire Pistoliers
- Legs - WHF Empire Pistoliers
- Torso - Cadian
- Lance/Arms - WHF Bretonnian Knightly Order
- Heads - Mixture of Cadian & WHF Empire Pistoliers
- Misc. Bits - Cadian sprues
The biggest challenge of the conversion has been filing down the right shoulder of all that armor plating. I still don't have it down to where I really want it. I think a better option might be found with a regular IG arm and swapping out the hand/lance. That would probably give less of a "knightly" look.
Although I have gotten all my misc. bits attached, I still need to scrounge a flamer and a meltagun for two of my riders, as well as some melta-bombs for the sergeant.
Although I really like the horse RR, I recently saw some very cool conversions done using the SM Scout bikes. I might take a stab at some of those.
I will be painting these with standard Vallejo German Uniform on the pants and the smock/helmet will be done in an Autumn Oak Leaf camo pattern. I will go with various shades of brown for the horses. If anyone has ever seen a reasonable tutorial on painting horses please send it my way.
The war goes on,
