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

Hey, I know those chaps!

I Just saw these shots on the Warhammer World face book page for Throne of Skulls. When the first one popped up I said with a grin "Hey that's Gravis' work!"

How I did my Rough Rider helmet plumes

Colonel Scipio asked about my helmet plumes and I realised I never loaded up any pics of the wire plumes. So if anyone is curious here is how I did it.

Reinforcements Approved: its now 3500p list.

My nemesis sent me a message; "I checked the points for my list and it came to 3500p, oops" to which I replied "don't worry I'll add a few more men..."

So, what does my list need?

3000p List - "Thunder Brigade" for the Oribella VII Battle of Little Red

Praetorian Expeditionary Officers and Imperial Allied Commanders of His most gracious Imperial Guard.

Presently elements of the the 1st of foot (Macharian Thunder Guard) and support regiments will depart en rout to the xeric single-biome planet of Oribella VII - known by the imperial indigenous as 'Rubella' (Little Red). A small cohort of fanatical Space Marines have been designated 'Renegade' by the illustrious Inquisitor Lady Marwood and it has fallen to my subordinate Colonel Lord Praetori (Honorifica Imperialis, Order of Macharious, Knight of Medusaand his boys to reconcile their souls to the mighty Emperor. I have personally received credible intelligence that the enemy relies on orbital drop pod assault tactics and utilises master crafted melta, flamer and thunder hammer weapons. 

I have noted much recent correspondence on the matter of task force formation. As such, I earnestly supplicate you, my fellow senior officers, to weigh the following brigade formation for the prior mentioned mission and submit you sentiments (if any) post-hast. 

As the Emperor protects, so must we.

(Acting)Brigadier-General Ackland.
