So my limited knowledge of miniature companies has finally caught up with me.

My wife has a running theme in all of her armies: she pretty much uses exclusively women, and we've hit our first snag - Cavalry.

She already has most female cavalry from the Reaper line save the archers (which don't quite work for Warlord's Crusaders) and GW provides no help, so I turn to the great and knowledgable people of the Reaper forums for help.

We're looking for any 28mm scale female cavalry as proxies for the Crusader Light Lancers and Lion's Lancers. They don't need to be riding horses, though anything with wings is probably a no-go.

Thanks in advance, guys.

Seek out Maidenhead miniatures. All female range. I don't know who is stocking them at the moment, but their cavalry ride huge terror birds. and SABRETOOTH CATS!!!

Mega Minis has two, but they are 25mm. http://stores.ebay.c...i.html?_fsub=20

One from I-Kore, but oop so it may be hard to hunt down http://www.nobleknig..._A_GenreID_E_69

Ral Partha/Ironwind did several in 25mm but I can't find them in the current online catalog.

The i-Kore Celtos range, (Gaels in particular) with its' beautiful female models, should be looked at in its' entirety.

It is no longer under i-Kore, except on ebay. The range belongs to Brigade Models in the U.K. Good service.

Well, okay, those models are pretty unmistakeable female, but, errr ...

How about those of us female gamers who like our female figures to be at least as practically dressed as the male ones? Or dressed at all?

Between the chill and the bounce, never mind the weaponry, those warriors llook like they would be excruciatingly uncomfortable.

Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

Well I sure don't mind ::P: ...but yeah, that's not really her style.

Thanks for the help so far, guys. I really appreciate it.

Figured I'd just bring this one back up instead of starting a whole new thread.

We had a new idea: centaurs. I know of Chiral and the other female centaur in Reaper's line. Anyone know of any others along the same lines?

On the subject of female miniatures if you are OK with samurai looking models look for Clan War Unicorn Battle Maidens (though they are currently OOP).

As to Centaurs;

Shadowforge ( http://www.shadowforge.com.au ) do pretty much just female lines, including centaurs and cavalry. I can't access the site from work, so can't check how appropriate the minis are for your purpose at the moment.

I used to be into necrophilia, bestiality and S&M... but then I realised I was flogging a dead horse.
