WIP – Rough Rider Sergeant on Servosteed
This is a work in progress for a potential rough rider squad. I may never get around to building a full squad of them but I always liked the concept of using the undead steeds as the basis for a rough rider riding animal. The idea is similar to the servo skull cyber-robots made from the heads of trusted imperial servents except in this case it is a trusted horse which has had the dubious honour of being cyberdized. Oddly enough I have never seen anybody do a decent effort at this concept that was not just a really lame looking cadian on an unconverted undead horse – if anybody has come accross a good one please link me!
I have opted to not bother with the rather cliché hunting lance and have gone for a bone splintering chainsword which the preferred cavalry weapon on Necromunda where it is used for crowd control in the underhive 🙂
Ohh yeah and I have also taken the liberty of intergrating a storm bolter into the Servosteed for sheer awesomeness (and you never know when you will be called upon to crowd control a genestealer cult).
The mechanical bitz come from clockwork watches which Ms. VonBismark had previously scavenged, I highly recommend getting your hands on some old scrap watches for parts, especially for the tiny buzzsaws 😉
There is more detailing to go on this fellow before it is finally ready for some paint.
