    A Quick Question: Do all the Horses have armourplating?

    Hi,

    I'm just starting to build a WE army and i'll be getting the battalion soon. I think i'm going to do some minor convertions to the glade riders but on the OZ gamesworkshop the horses are shown without the weird armour plates on their heads, are the ones with the plating new models or are they just a varrient?

    Move like a shadow, strike like a huricane, leave not a soul alive...

    If you're talking about the leather bits on the heads of the glade rider horses, then yes - the horses in your battalion box (and in the glade riders box) will all have the bits of leather on their heads. However, the Wild Rider horse heads (much thanks for using a photo of my rider, Maraschino 8Y) are metal and only come with the wild riders.

    If you saw horses that looked differently than the two pictures Maraschino provided, you saw a conversion of some type. The heads are separate pieces on the models, so swapping them out would be pretty easy.

    hahahaha, you can't link to your desktop CDocuments and Settings\Aspire SA MMX1\Desktop\Reubenswork

    Almost every race which uses horses have different heads (at least at one time). So finding a simple horse head would mean bying a different battalion box or ordering individual bits
    Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

    Youre refering to these:



    which are exactly the same horses as i posted in my first post, just photographed from the left side as opposed to the right side (which is how i photographed them)

    as cyric said, the horses in your batallion box will be the glade riders which are the same as above.

    the horses you saw with armour plates are either wild riders (see below) or a conversion


    these images are from GW website

    none of them have barding and all count as fast cav for movement - that's how I read the question anyway.

    (just being a smarty on a Wednesday morning)


    Those are some nicely painted models maraschino ;?
