FW ones are awesome.

Tallarn ones arn't bad.

Use Empire outriders with bretonian lances if you want horses. Or Maruder horsemen javelins.

Use brass rods for the lances, and work up some bitz for the explosive tips.

I use chaos marauder horsmen, the forge world ones are seriously cool though, I wish I could afford them.

you could simply use anything long enough, banners or anything for the lance and add a good tip on it. or as said, brass rods

Really?

They arn't that expensive. I don't know why everyone has this beef that FW is so overpriced. Really, its just a few bucks more than a GW kit.

There is a very small segment on the starwars - 3rd episode that shows republic clone troopers riding what looks like a 2 legged bikes. the legs are reverse jointed - AT-ST style.

This is what I think the most awesomest rough rider coversion would be. However, I just don't see a good way to do it.

I'm working on a squad of rough riders as we speak. I'm using the the SM scout bikes and biker legs with an IG body and weapons... as for the hunting lances I'm saying they are given enough NOS to ma a massive charge ONCE.

Just using a bit of imagination

I live in Canada, with the Euro almost twice our dollar + shipping and handeling + the number of rough riders I would want, it can get really expensive. I got the renegade militia conversion set (arms and bodies) and it cost me over 50$ (canadian).

That would be very cool, I always like the conversions with a rough rider on a bike.
