In part one, I went over my motives for building my unit of rough riders, where I found parts, etc. Now that I have everything to do a prototype model, I’m going to put the parts together and see how it looks.
As I figured, the Blight Wheel casts were pretty simple to clean, mostly just cutting down the spot where the sprue attached. I used Kromlech Orc “Afrika Korps” Heads and ork torsos that I ordered from eBay. Everything seemed to go together really well.
I couldn’t wait for my 40mm bases to come in, so I stole one from a meganob so I could see how well it would stand.
I then got some 3/32 brass tubing and cut a 3″ section off to make a lance pole. I then drilled through the choppa hand to accommodate the rod. I’m still debating whether or not I want to attach a stikkbomb to the lance.
