Default rough rider idea:

i've been racking my brain for months to find a cool mount for my rough riders. i've looked into bikes, bears, wolves, horses, lizards and even hippo's... [don't ask, seriously...]
then i remembered some fluff i made for whay my IG army used to be, jungle fighters. on what was the homeworld, there were giant bear sized felines, i named them Tigions, cos i was young and couldn't think of a better name...
well, i'm really tempted to have a go at making them now. i decided that they should be based on these.
i know that they are a good size, and that i could easily make a mould :shifty: so i can get loads. but i want bigger. something that looks really nasty. i was thinking of always counting as having hunting lances without the need for the actual weapon.

what do you guys think of the idea of the IG riding on giant cats? i'm open to suggestions. or critisisms. i understand that some may think it daft to put them on cats, seeing as how they aren't easily tamed or taught. but then, lobotomisation... anyway, as i said above, any suggestions?

like a sabretooth. i think i'll make a sketch with my rubbish pencil skills... but yeah, cat's on giant cats. i was thinking of using the creature feature thing to get rules for the evil ferocity of the Tigion. they like to rip people apart...

i shall. but i need to draw some idea's down first.
might be able to do it tonight/ tomorrow. but i have got some other things going.

i should really stop trying to do so many things at once... even my IG tank thing is getting neglected... and annoyingly, a bit ignored...
