Okay, we’ve had a lot of requests for separate rider’s legs for those who’d like to use other mounts, like horses, dinosaurs, etc., so I’m happy to announce that we will be offering those as well. So, there are now two ways to join in on this project. The regular way, as described below, and rider-only, which will net you ten sets of riders legs and shock lances which can be used on other mounts. The price is the same either way, and both include shipping. Make sure to be specific about which door you want to use when joining the project.
So, if you want to go that route, send me a PM.
Now that the Female Imperial Guard project has come to a successfull conclusion, my club and I have set our sights on a new project. We want to gather together a group of Imperial Guard players, pool our resources, hire a sculptor, and make some really nice Cadian Rough Riders for ourselves.
Rought Riders are one of the best and cheapest (points-wise) counter-assault units the Imperial Guard have available to them, but most players are turned off by the models, so we're going to make them ourselves.
Big BIG thanks to kugelblitz who created the concept art and worked out the design. What's brilliant about this design is that they can be used as regular rough riders, but have enough armor that players could also field them with the rules for carapace armor if they want to without having to convert the models. Alternately, players could also use these with the rules for xenos cavalry, but the way the model is designed they won't have to unless they want to.
The project calls for the riders legs to be sculpted as part of the mount, so players can use any torsos they want to when building the model, so it will be compatable with all types of Guard armies, like catachan, Death Korps, Pretorian, Mordian, Tallern, etc.
This creature is based on the Moa, an extinct eleven feet tall creature native to New Zealand.
The Moa is very similar to a Veloci-Raptor, both in silouette, speed, ferocity, and intelligence, but it is unusual in that is has no arms/wings, not even little ones. Moa were very strong, able to break through a man's skull or snap a man in half with their lightning fast beaks as effortlessly as popping a balloon. The Moa has been the inspiration for other Sci-Fi creatures you might be familiar with in movies like Wizards, Naausica, Final Fantasy, and some Star Wars critters.
The shocklance would be an equivilant weapon that would use the same rules as a hunting lance.
Here are the parts that will be sculpted:
Moa head and neck (so that it can be positioned when assembled)
Moa body with rider's legs attached.
Two sets of Moa legs (one walking one standing)
Shocklance arm and tip. (A piece of brass tubing will be necessary to make the shaft)
Here's our concept art:
Send me a PM if you want to join in. The deadline to join the project is September 30th, at which time sculpting will begin. When casting is done, models will be sent out to people in the order that they joined in, so the sooner you join, the sooner you'll get your models. The buy-in price is $50.00, which will include the cost of shipping the models out to you once they are done. Each person who joins in will get 6 sets for each $50.00 they put towards the project(mount body, mount head and neck, mount legs, and rider arm with shocklance)
i may join this after i see the model because the female cadians project i only liked 1 of the heads and real military fatigues are the same for men and women so with kevlar vests on you can only slightly see the body difference between a male and female in a kevlar vest and the biggest difference is probably the sholders
Is that $50 US?
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
well i didnt like your last model so i'll just stick to cadians mounted on cold ones(warhammer fantasy lizardmen mounts) i bet i can convert it to look better than your oversized turkeys LOL
Does each 6 sets make one model? or 6 models?
6 models 50$ it is reasonable but i dont like the mount(turkey) so no thank you
Can I see some pics from the completed female cadians first?
