Cavember has been moving on beautifully. Col Gavis has opened up his competition to any rough riders, Victoria Lamb has released her own Cavalry kits and I've seen a few really stunning Praetorian cavalry conversions. An honourable mention has to go to Col Winterborne, Check these out:

Conversion and Extras
Obviously the options here are endless so I’ll just cover what I’m up to.
I have added head plumes (still a WIP), chainswords, pistol pouches, an ammo crate and bed roll. As well as making my own lances (as mentioned in a previous post), taking off the reins, chaos markings & spikes, and green-stuffing the horses and helmets.
Here is where I am up to:
Easy move. It’s got to be col Gravis’s conversion kits. Hands down the best bodies you will find to match our Praetorian/Mordian armies.
A few choices here.
The top choice would have to be the secret weapon heads. Im going with these. But there are lots of other head options if you want to stay with pith helets or diversify a bit.

Praetorian Expeditionary Officers and Imperial Allied Commanders of His most gracious Imperial Guard.
November is hereby declared "Cavember".
I will be doing my upmost to have my detachment of Cavalry (courtesy of Col. Gravis) ready for frontline duty.
I know many of your regiments have received your own supply of Gravis's elitist chaps, so i respectfully urge you to do the same.
Victory is imperative.
Sign up here to follow.
If you feel inclined to leave your command bunker and joining the heroic charge yourself, post below so we all can celebrate your conquest.
Prise be the Emperor and Tally Ho!

This month I moved house. Between that and work the modelling was light. Despite this there was some interesting progress…

As well as being fanatically involved in WH40k I am trying to finish up my PhD. So I guess my blogging will be sporadic until March 2012 when I get to call myself doctor and have way more time to paint, game and blog.
So to keep thing brief and organised, 3 starting points:
