Probably a stupid question, but ive never heard of rhinox riders before in a battlereport in this forum, so i was wondering if they are a special thing beside the Ogre kingdom rulebook or if they are included in the rulebook, and anyway, how good are they? whats theyre stats(as much as can be allowed without breaking rules of forum/GW, i guess you are not allowed to give full statline and points, but just some hints). Just for my quriosity:rolleyes:.

They are not in the rule book and there is two different sets of rules for them out there.

They are good, but they make your elite army even more elite... so just hope there are no war machines...

are there any models for them or do you have to model some of your own?

You have to convert them your own, and now that you can't bitz order the rhinox from the scraplauncha anymore it's a lot more pricy to do...

I've always like the ideas if usinga stegadon as a bull rhinox though... give the model heavy armor and a iron fist and you have one crazy model for a reasonable 163 points.

Edit: Bah... what am I saying. There are the forgeworld ones.

Errm ... there IS another way ... assuming that you're not playing in a tournament or some assorted dickweed that insists on GW figs ... check out:

Not to burst your bubble Shinankoku, but those models you showed us on your link don't look they would fit the scale of the Ogres surrounding them.

If you were to take the rider off the mount they look like they'd be 1/2 the size of the Ogres joining them in battle.

Exactly, those figs are on 50mm bases. A (bull) Rhinox takes up a 50x100 base.

Trollkin are much smaller than people think, those figs riding them are NOT Ogre sized.
