I was searching all over round here, and i cant founf¿d any nice bull to make any coonversion for a great taurus, but today I found this http://battlecollege.wikispaces.com/file/view/long-riders.jpg Hordes trollblodd Long Riders Cavalry unit, unfortunately I dont know how its the size of this … so maybe some of you can know, i hope that this be bigger than an Ogre Rhinox or a Chaos Juggernout
by the other hand I never had the chance to see a Great taurus here, so how its the size, its like Karl Franz Griffon, or bigger (or smaller)
Heightwise, those appear to be about the size of a horse. If they were slightly “beefier” (excuse the accidental pun), I’d say go for it. However, they might look a bit too small. I’m tempted to get some myself (bisons are just WAY too cool and as a cavalry mount PWN FTW!).
As for the size of the Great Taurus, it’s larger than a pegasus, due to it’s bulk, but smaller than a griffon at a guess), but not by lots. A good size is about that of the Wood Elves’ Great Stage. I believe Mr. Xander did a conversion built from that model.
i think those on the equivelant of a 40mm round so prolly on the small side. I doubt quite seriously that it would be the size of or larger than the forgeworld rhinox. As too the juggernaught size wise i think those bison are smaller but not by much. Granted those are opinions as i do not have those minis in my hand… tis based on the lines that i have seen.
may have to pick up a few for some bull centaur action, that bison blend is just too nice.
But not all Taurus’s are created equal, lol… also depends on what fluff you fit for your army. the Bison taurus could be quite nice.
For the rider, my first idea was to use a tall hat rider, but im now thinking in to make a reallly bad ass lord:yar
for painting schem im not sure, the skin will be black as well as wings, I was thinking on put some fire or lava as the balrog, but im not sure ho or where ( iwill love some ideas), I thought that maybe some flames on the Fur, but not sure, probably will be grey…
the armour definitly will be red and gold as well as for rider
