    Hi all,

    Goldflash requested a Dwarf Cavalry unit in the WH Discussin Thread, so i decided to have a go. I just hope that he didnt mean a gunpowder unit...

    So here it is: a mounted Stuntie

    Thanks to aaglo (who made the Longbeard unit) and Kryten (who made the Riderless Horse unit) for the original units

    Hope you like it :)

    EDIT: The Death flic was a little off, and it looked weird, so i have fixed that problem and added the new flic as an attachment

    EDIT 2: Realised download doesnt include some of the sounds needed, so these are posted as yet another attachment. Sorry for the inconvienience :blush:

    Here's a preview: Run > Default > Fortifty > Attack > Death



    The download

    Very nice!

    The Sovereign Stone series, by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, features nomadic dwarves on ponies - they're modelled on the Mongols, I think. They spend so much time on the ponies that those dwarves unable to ride, because of physical injury, are called the "unhorsed" and considered the lowest of the low...

    It's a long time since I read The Hobbit, but don't the dwarves ride their ponies in it?

    It does look like he's standing on the poor horse ...
