From the Archives: Imperial Mashup

So the lads were talking about the old 40k Tallarn Rough Riders, and I mentioned that I have a test model from a project that was both conceived and abandoned long ago (though not in a galaxy far away). I still have the necessary Cold Ones and Tallarn Riders for a squad of these, but they'll remain stowed away in a dusty box for the forseeable future.

This is a straight up kitbash, basically just the Tallarn horse rider reposed with pliers and pinned to a Dark Elf Cold One. 

The rider doesn't even fit that well on his mount, though these photos hide it well.  I remember being pretty pleased with the paint job on the lizard but now the painting just looks rudimentary to me.

The only custom element are the reins, made out of Green Stuff. I'm amazed they've survived intact after all this time.

So what do you think. Should I continue to include old painted stuff as part of my blog?


  1. He looks at least 3.78 times better than an Attilan Rough Rider. I also find it a bit humiliating, that your 'rudimentary' paint jobs are the same as my really good paint jobs.

    I for one am all for showing old stuff on your blog. In fact, I am going to post some pictures of my old Stormtroopers and Chimera in the next day or so. Although my blog standards are quite a bit lower than yours.

  2. I love kitbash stuff like this. Now all you need is a game to use it in ;)
