I'm trying to mount my dwarf lord on the Tsar Boris bear (will count as shieldbearers) but am having trouble finding legs suitable to use. Does anyone know of any mounted dwarf models or dwarflike models made by GW? I want to keep it potentially GW tourney legal. I've searched classic models across the ranges and can't find any.

At the very least I'd like to find a dwarf or similar model that shows enough dwarf leg that I could cut it off and straddle the bear and greenstuff any gaps to the torso. As it stands the current dwarf models barely show their feet let alone enough of the legs to make useable. I'm not a greenstuff artist so my skill don't extend much beyond gap filling.

All help is appreciated.

You could hunt for Squat biker legs from Rogue Trader off ebay!

Other than that, the only other stunties I remember being mounted were some halflings back in the 80s.

Again, a very old model, but I believe there was a Dwarf riding Pony model

(by old, I'm talking in the 1980's...)

Maybe the old Dwarf Mountaineer model may be easier to convert, as IIRC his legs are slightly apart, to take account of his skis...

I think the old Gyrocopter pilot (http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/store.uk?do=Individual&code=COMP0205008&orignav=301116) might be workable for what you need.

Yes, the old Gimli is the only mounted (Citadel) Dwarf model I remember. And it's a fine model, but good luck in finding one :(

Yes, you are right. I have both the foot versions of him from the old range, but i have never actually seen the mounted one in person.

Gobbo wolf rider legs? Not armoured but at least they're a bit stunty.

The old Hobgoblin wolf rider chief probably has the best legs for what you're after. Just need to fatten up the boots a bit.

i would consider sculpting a platform on the bears back, sort of like a palanquin. that way you could swap the lord model off of the bears back and put him on a regular base.
