    Imperial guard boar Boys(z)?

    Ive always loved the orc boar boyz because the boars are just so cool looking (dont ask me why) Since i need some rough riders for my Imperial guard i decided to try my first conversion.

    I have never actually put together (or seen) the boar models and i am an inexperienced converter. so their are a few things i need to know before i start:

    I doubt that guardsmen legs would fit across the boars backs so what should i use to get the guards on the boar's backs?

    what figures should i use for the humans on the boars backs? i was thinking i may be able to buy knights from the empire or bretonnia but that would cost alot more money then i think i could afford right now.

    Are their any things i have not adressed that could lead to problems? any and all help is very apreciated

    You may be able to use SM biker legs and model them as being armored chaps for your RR.

    try modelling a specialised saddle that would let the guardsman kneel on the boar's back with straps across the back of their legs to help them stay on. the idea of using warhammer boars for RRs sounds pretty good

    Where could i get large amounts of SM biker legs? i would need a minimum of 10 rough riders so this could get expensive

    where could i find kneeling legs for humans? this sounds a lil harder but still an option

    thanks for the help so far everyone

    You could bitz order the legs through your local games workshop or try online. Personally i think they would probably fit on the boar you should give it a try before you spend money on bikers.

    Knights from the Empire are actually quite cheap for 8 of them, and the legs should be easy enough to put onto the backs of boars. Sell the otehr bits you don;t use as sprues to would-be converters or modellers. Alternative would be the Pistoliers, who have even better detail on them, and they wear more English Civil War type armour, so would be easier to convert to look futuristic...And the horses from these boys would sell like hot-cakes on bitz orders.

    SM Biker Legs will NOT fit a Boar, they are almost straight, and the gap betwen them is too narrow. Additionally, SM legs are too obviously SM legs, and much bigger than standard humans

    Go to TheWarStore.com or BitzBox - Warhammer and 40k Plastic Bits . I perfer bitzbox- it's cheaper and has cheap international shipping ( around $5 ). However they are constantly out of stock and if it's a popular bit you have to get it when they restock. That said knights legs should be fine, but I cut them in half, spread them, and fill it in. Otherwise they would never fit around the boar.
