Default Ummm... these are Death Riders?



News! Forge World's got Death Riders.

Now tell me how that is a robotic horse...

I do like the models, though. Shame it's $100 USD for the 5-man squad.

They aren't robotic. Krieg never used robotic horses.

No, they're only genetically modified, occasionally with cybernetic implants. Look at your local stable, and you're not gonna find muscular body builder horses like those in the picture.

Im not a big fan of the fact that they all look like they have nothing to do.

Really? I think they look kind of menacing just standing at ease.

Agreed! And if like most rough riders, they will only do one thing in a game: Die!

Also notice that they have weird mutant toes and not hooves.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

I noticed that too. They may be uber-leet (I thought the uber was appropriate for the Krieg) but something just puts me off, mostly the fact that many ideas I had for a German Cavalry when I have my own guard army have been included in these; the wee flags on the lances especially. Well at least Krieg don&#39;t run around in czapka&#39;s so I&#39;m happy that at least one part of my idea is still safe!

don&#39;t get me wrong though, they are UBERLEET, and for those of you boored by the poses, if these riders are like any other forgeworld unit: they will release other poses.
