Ratwig' Final Entry: Varl's Guard Cataphracts (376pts)

My entry for April: Varl’s Guard led by Siq Viq.
6 Doomsteeds: 376 points total.
Equipment: Hand weapon, lance, crossbow, light armor, shield. Unit has standard and musician.

This is a unit of Dark Elf cataphracts to guard Varl, the army general.



The riders are all Marauder figs. Five of the horses are from Essex and the one ridden by the standard bearer is from Gripping Beast. I used the same Gripping Beast Successor Shields as the Black Hearts. The lances were constructed with brass rod and plastic. Saddle covers were made from Green Stuff putty.


Varl and his guards.

And that concludes my portion of the Old World Army Challenge. Have a good day, I’m currently testing a bottle of Jack for impurities…

  10. Great unit and good choice of mounts, much better than the, always looking straight ahead, citadel horses.
