Today's post is to show some models I finished some time ago, but I was (and still am) very pleased with the results. When I started my personal Savlar Chem-Dogs army, I knew that I wanted rough riders - this army has a specialist form of mutant cavalry called "Chem-Riders". The problem is that GW hasn't released a decent cavalry model for 40k since the Rogue Trader days, and so I set about making my own rough rider models.
I started off with a very different concept (using WFB Chaos Marauder mounts - I will showcase those another time), but I ended up settling on the plastic Dark Elf Cold One kit. This is a useful and very characterful set which is quite easily converted.
As it turns out, the idea didn't need much conversion really. For the riders, I used some resin conversion parts from Colonel Gravis (now of Curious Constructs), old tank rider torsos, and heads from Pig Iron (like the rest of my Savlar army).
