Here is a built and painted example of the Steel Dragoon heavy cavalry for my Wooden Wars: Queen Victoria's Robot Wars expansion. The Robotic V-Rex is quite stout, and the rider has two arm variations and the option of a full face mask.


I've painted up these based upon the 17th lancers. The dragoons steer the dino via lever controls on the saddle, which basically guide the head in the direction needed.

Steel Dragoons, being heavy cavalry, count as two attacks (automatic hits) in the first round of melee if they charge. This means that they can tear up a unit if they make contact.

Very intresting stuff the paint jobs really bring the models to life.

Very nice….flats may be making a comeback if you post many more pictures of your work. A partnership with Litko could be profitable for both of you.

Your highness and Frederick- I am constantly surprised at how well they come out and how fun they are to paint. I can't even look at my 6mm nappies anymore without a tinge of regret, knowing I may never finish them now…

JSchutt- Thanks for he kind words. I think that Mr. Litko has plenty to do with his own awesome line, of which I am a huge fan. I'll be producing my Wooden Wars line to the public soon.

I love these and feel like I am looking at something that walked right off of a children's adventure story book.

Cool stuff.
