In case you were wondering, some of the parts to make my groovy Rough Riders were sculpted by Rob at Curious Constructs.

Praetorian Cavalry Finished!

With Cavember nearly over I finally have my first 5 cavalrymen finished! I was origenally hoping to have many more done, but 5 is a start. In truth just getting anything finished is really good for me.

Cavember Update: My Praetorian Rough Riders WIP

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:

Cavember - Fifth and Sixth move- Conversions and Colour

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:

Cavember -Third and Forth move- Bodies and Heads.

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.

Cavember -Second move- Mounts!

I have already mentioned this in a previous post, but let’s investigate this again.
Col. Gravis designed his conversions to fit on to outrider horses so this is the obvious choice. But what are the other options?

Cavember -first move- What bases to use; Bike bases, terminator bases or fantasy cavalry bases?

Welcome to CAVEMBER!!

We had the Melbourne Cup (horse race) today in Oz, so it was a very fitting day to launch Cavember. While Victorians got a public holiday I went to work like the rest of Australia, but gambled, drank beer and knocked off early like a good Aussie.
On to the cavalry (tee the bugle call)! Let's start with the basics- bases!
