Orcs on Horses - options? was created by ChicagoWiz
In my campaign world, my orcs don't ride boars or lizards or other creatures - they ride horses. Which, oddly enough, is very hard to find in the 25mm world!

Now, I've found two options on the IWW site - they are not listed as Chaos Wars specific, but I'm curious if these figures could be somehow combined with horses AND if they are True 25mm:

Orc Archer / Reptile Mount - 01-244


Orc Knight / Reptile Mount - 01-243


Anyone tried that? Can I purchase just the riders and ask for horses as substitutes?

As of right now, I was forced to use these guys from Alternative Armies. I like 'em, but I' would like to use RP/CW orcs...

Since they are mounted,even if they were 28's they probably wouldn't stand out as much as an infantry unit.

Does IWM make some of their 51-xxx minis in 28, as versus 25?

Some of the mid/ late 80's sculpts, including some of the original chaos wars personalities were definitely a 'heroic' 25 scale.

Well, if I could talk Jacob into selling me those bad boys with horses instead of reptiles...

@ChicagoWiz, the two orcs you showed at the start of the tread are far to big for most horses currently available. They are fairly large even for 28mm. Maybe the two armored Chaos horses? Jacob would have to speak towards the future availability of orc riders at 25mm scale.

Thanks, DarkPoet. That's a shame, those are nice figures for Orc Riders. It would be neat if they have Orc riders for the future that are true 25s.

(Gavin at AltArmies won't mind more business....)

Agreed, I like them as well. I may check next time I'm down there to see if they fit the chaos steed.
