Mk3 Roughriders, New Sculpts Work In Progress

Yes I've been quiet, busy in fact, but amongst the things keeping me busy has been this.

At long last the new Roughrider sculpts are really taking shape, so I thought I'd chuck up a quick picture. As with the previous two versions (my own and the abortive Phoenix Club set), I'm making use of the WFB Empire Outrider Horses. This time though I'm also making use of the Pith Helmeted Head set which I sculpted for Secret Weapon Miniatures. The Torso just needs a little more detailing, the boots need adding, and the first set of arms still have a fair way to go - the one in the picture is nearly done though. I'm also thinking of turning out a scabbard and holster as accessories to join the Lance components I've already finished.

Hopefully further updates soon.

I will definitely get some of these if you produce them. I've been dying to get my hands on some conversion legs

No idea when the final piece will be finished, at the moment both arms are nearing completion, just the hands to go, and I've just one last little bit of detailing for the torso. The boots still need doing too.

Contemplating some extra bits, a pistol holster and sheathed sword as well, but no firm decision made on those yet.
