I really like the unit. It retains some Mordian value but now looks like an 18th century Dragoon. It would be especially awesome if you made a Rough Riders Squad out of them.
Eventually, I will. Not any time soon, though, as converting an entire army to have these hats will already take months, but once I'm done I'll definitely look into cavalry.
Concerning the unit you posted. I know its primed, but are you still gona go with the gold/yellow trim that looked awesome.
Yeah, it'll be painted like the other trooper. I just wanted to show you guys a white plume with red tip, but didn't have time to paint the entire model.
I never liked the Mordians, but your unit just comes out as something completely original. Like a pocket of 18th Century in the year 40000. The feather looks awesome. On my first cadians, I denoted different platoons and squads on their shoulder pads. Here you cant do this, but the American Sailors during the Revolutionary war would sew a cross on the top of their hats so their snipers in the Raven's Nest (lookout on top of sails) wouldnt fire at them. Just an idea. Since youre the one thats gona be looking at them the most, some sort of aerial identification might work for you. I like the feather idea too. The hat stitch is just another example from history.
Hm, worth trying, I think. But it's one of those things that will cost a lot of extra work, so I'll first convert and paint up the models, then I'll see if I can add some more extras like crosses and whatever else. Keep this kind of ideas coming, though, even if I don't use them right now there's always a chance I'll use it later on!
I noticed youre keen on being called Mark so I did my best not to call you Terra's Guard.
Nah, I just think it looks a bit silly
I put it in my name too because some people kept getting confused about the sig. I'm not gonna kill you if you say Terra's Guard instead of Mark! (I might hurt you a little, maybe break one or both of your legs and cut off your genitals, but I'm really not going to kill you over it...
