I've always been a fan of the vox net - with my luck any extra point of leadership is good.But for your army its quite fluffy to have "wardens" leading each squad.

Have you got any ideas for your Rough Riders? - I love seeing those conversions. The idea that immediatly springs to mind is mounted Wardens with Stun Batons/Lances.

Just one thing from a fluff point of veiw "Light Infantry" doesn't really seem to fit.

ahh, the vox net is expensive and vulnerable. if you know what youre doing the vox hq will easily go west.
vet sarg and close order drill will do the job just as well.

The light infantry doctrine represents lightly armed and armoured troops. EG Tanith first, who are only wear kevlar armour and carry carbine lasguns, as opposed to regiments of heavily armed and armoured regiments such as Volpone 5oth.

a penal legoin will be neither armoured or armed well, as the death of the entire legion will mean nothing to the commanders. therefore it isnt a bad choice gamewise and could easily be incoroprated into fluff.

Good point. My impression of the Light Infantry doctrine was of really well trained troops etc. But your one also makes sence.

You could also look at getting Conscripts - since that is basiclly what they are.

Well i thought about the last chancers! I think their fairly cool.

As for the rough riders, im probably going to do them the same way as the rest of the army ie, plastercard, greenstuff, chaos termi heads for a few, mix of cadian and catachan plastics + any other mini i like. After all they steal most of their kit anyways. But i think i'll mount them on the old cold ones. I thought about the old mutie steeds but apparently you cant get them any more! boo hoo

Great I was going to suggest the cold one idea but I'm thinking of using it.

Great minds.

I like the idea of the sabretoothed cats from the Ogre Kingdoms army, I have seen the coldones done quite often, it looks cool though.

I've seen teh Sabretoothed cats done twice. Once was in a Amazon/Dogs of War Army for Fanatasy and the other was a Squad of Rough Riders for Golden Deamon Australia. It didn't win any awards unfortuantly which I thought it should have since i was very well done, it was just in a montage of pictures.

I think the main reasons people don't go for those as mounts is because there are only two poses, they are metal and very few people know how to paint stripes or spots well enough to look natural. Cold Ones are quiet simple to paint. I'm am seriously considering making a squad of them even though a lot of people do them.
