Khador Greylord Outriders…

As with most I’m not a fan of some of the original horses that came packed with the unit. There are a couple that are not anatomically correct and that bugged me.

I’ve been searching for alternate mounts and luckily a friend had some models he wanted to get rid of. Better yet I could actually try to dry fit them in person to see how the proportions were and what kind of modding I would have to do. It was as if fate wanted me to convert the unit since the models were perfect. There was very minimal modding and I just had to shave a little of the top fur off and that was it! I decided to also use some epoxy and make belts for the saddles and proceeded to use a mechanical lead pencil to create the studs/rivets on the belt. All in all I’m really happy with how they came out even though I could’ve done a little more work to make the saddles sit more flush on the wolves. I also experimented with making frosted hands because I thought that would look cool.

As far as the unit on the table goes, they are pretty awesome. It’s nice to have something so fast for Khador and I usually run them with any of the Vlads for the Signs & Portents or Hand of Fate upkeep spell on them. Sprays are delicious!


Sing to the tune of Crossfire “Wolf riders! You’ll get frosted by the, Wolf Riders!”

  1. Army Painter Desert Yellow Primer on the riders & P3 White Primer on the wolves
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
  3. Used Army Painter Dark Tone Ink all over the miniature using a big flat brush
  4. Minimal highlights (flesh, teeth, tongues, studs, rivets, etc.)
  5. Bases are comprised of Woodland Scenics grass & a Autumn Mix Leaf Scatter
  6. I varnish with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Coat (Non-Yellowing & UV Resistant) & then use Testor’s Dullcote to take away the gloss
  7. Finally I use Vallejo Gloss Varnish on the frosted hands and wolf tongues
