Rough Riders, renowned cavalry troops of the Astra Militarum, hail from the vast steppes of Attila, where their exceptional combat prowess and unmatched mobility make them a formidable force on the battlefield. Whether leading the charge or executing flanking maneuvers, these horsemasters excel in both offensive and tactical roles. As they thunder into battle, the Rough Riders drive their hunting lances deep into the enemy ranks, triggering explosive tips that unleash devastating impact upon their foes.
This multipart plastic kit allows you to assemble a squad of five Attilan Rough Riders. Each warrior is mounted on a sturdy warhorse equipped with essential gear, including flasks, bedrolls, holstered laspistols, and saddle-slung lasguns. Every Rough Rider wields an explosive hunting lance, offering the choice between a frag tip for decimating infantry or a melta tip for annihilating armored targets. Additionally, one Rough Rider can be assembled with an electrical goad lance. The kit also includes components to create a Rough Rider Sergeant, featuring two plumed head options and an optional power saber that can be wielded during the attack or sheathed at the hip.
Customization options abound, allowing you to personalize each squad of Rough Riders. Explore different arm poses for lance-wielding, choose from a wide array of multipart heads, and adorn your troopers with front and rear bandoliers brimming with grenades, pouches, and the distinctive curved Attilan dagger. With such versatility, you can truly make your Rough Riders stand out as a unique and formidable force on the tabletop.

How to paint the Attilan Rough Riders Set
- Step 1: Prepare your models
Clean any mold lines or imperfections using a modeling knife or file. Assemble the models according to the instructions provided.
- Step 2: Prime the models
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to the entire model using a spray can or airbrush. Use a color like Citadel’s Chaos Black spray for a good base.
- Step 3: Basecoat the horse and rider
Start by painting the horse’s body with a base color like Rhinox Hide. Apply the base color to the rider’s clothing, armor, and any other desired areas.
- Step 4: Highlight the horse and rider
Using a lighter shade, such as Gorthor Brown, carefully paint raised areas on the horse’s body and the edges of the rider’s clothing and armor to create highlights and add depth.
- Step 5: Detail the accessories and weapons
Paint the details of the accessories, such as holstered laspistols, saddle-slung lasguns, and other equipment, using appropriate colors like Leadbelcher for metallic parts and Mephiston Red for lasgun accents.
- Step 6: Apply wash for shading
Apply a wash, such as Agrax Earthshade to the entire model to enhance the shadows and add depth to the crevices and recessed areas.
- Step 7: Highlight and finalize
Use a fine brush to add final highlights on raised areas, such as the edges of clothing, horse’s muscles, and metallic parts, using lighter shades than the base colors.
- Step 8: Basing (optional)
If desired, paint the base using textures, such as Stirland Mud, and add details like static grass or tufts for a finished look.
