Rough Riders

A funny thing happened on the way to my bits box... I found 5 original rough riders. Having turned into a speed painter, I had to quickly get these glued up and ready for battle. I was missing a few pieces, but one halved knights Panther and I had all the legs I needed. I have no idea why I painted the horses eyes red, must have been thinking about lord of the rings or something.


  1. You're painting skills are very good, but you need to trim your mould lines. :)

  2. I was thinking the same thing as I posted the photos. My Lysander even has a bit of sprue stuck to him still! I'll have to turn it into some kind of battle damage or something.

    mantra...must clean models first.... must clean models first.... must paint... drat!

  3. Are those the original horses that came with the rough riders as well? As always I appreciate the old-school flair, but in the first pic, the horses look like they're goose-stepping!
