Praetorian Badger Riders WIP (Rough Riders)

Hey everyone, Just thought I would share an update on my Badger Lancers which will be my Rough Rider conversions! So far so good, needs some green stuff and pouches etc but overall its the look im going for!








To come are the Special Gunners and the Company Colours bearer. I need to buy more parts like grenades, pouches, water canteens and so forth to really finish them off. 

Below we have the special character mount, the rider will more than likely be a librarian who will aid the badgers on their journey. So far the rider is gonna be some kind of witch-doctor if I can find the parts, but I am open to ideas!  




Let me know what you think guys!

Oh, and the Comic Batrep is coming...

  1. These look quality, looking forward to seeing them complete. Are you going to green stuff saddles on, or have them riding bare back? Or am I just missing the saddle?

    Also, when you say librarian are you talking psyker, priest or just character model? Definitely want some sort of rough riders for my catachans but still not sure what to do.

    1. Since my green stuff skills are far from satisfactory they are gonna bareback these steeds.

      Librarian as in the Space Marine Psyker. He can give the squad a 4+ invulnerable and add extra punch + powers. Not competitive but combined with the Krieg Rough Rider rules it really enhances the survivability and usefulness of the squad.

      Apes would be a cool one, or some other form of Jungle creature for your Catachans. Giant cats maybe? I always thought some kind of frog or millipede mount would be cool too.

    3. All of the above mounts are mantic models! I dont know what kind of legs you are gonna use, but the saddles on the mounts fit really well with Vic Minis mounted legs. (well the Lion did anyway). So they seem like a great size to start with!

    4. If you end up going with the Mantic Cats route I have a new unassembled unit I could sell you for 50% retail.

      It sounds like a really cool looking conversion.

    5. The Badgers and Lion above were purchased from Eldarian above. Good, trusting trader over all!

    7. I'm in the uk, what would the postage be? Not cheap I would have thought.

      I've been to BC a few times, mostly down south, its a nice place, wouldn't mind going back sometime.

    8. I'll look into it for you. Though we should probably stop cluttering up Jayden's blog. Anywhere more appropriate to continue this? DakkaDakka? Steam chat, Email?

      Let me know :)

    9. Lol, yeah might be best to take it somewhere else. Email would be best as apart from blogger the only thing I'm on is facebook.

      My email is sjb801.sb@googlemail.com

  2. They are looking great so far! Can't wait to see them finished.

    I think that lion will make a great steed for your counts as DA PFG Librarian.

    I'll keep searching for tribal bits for your witch doctor concept too.

    1. Cheers mate. I havent been so excited about a project in a while now.

      For now he has a military cap (like colonel Shaffer) on his armored body like a knight. I couldnt find any tribal bits to suit in my huge bitz box. I will post pics tonight.

      But I am very open to witch doctor parts if you find some.
