What do you guys think of these as Dwarven Cav? I sort of loath the badger-rider concept, but really enjoy these guys. If multi-based, do you guys think three would adequately represent 5 Badgers for rule-of-cool?

Checks out! And three per reg is probably cool. They almost have the same problem as repping gryocopters - the flight puts them halfway to Elohi. But unlike gyro flight stands these floater bois look to be closer to the ground, so easy badger lad counts as.

Got plans for the guns? Give the unit a shooting attak or hack the guns off the models? Or just count them as short range nail gun combat weapons?

I THINK you can do a build that is gun free, and just close-combat weapons, as I don't have the kits in hand yet. If I need to, I have a million Dwarfy bits from assorted kits, so maybe I can find them some pick-axes, etc...

You know, I think you're right. Spears in the right hand, stabbing gauntlets in the left, double-handed drill if there aren't enough / for added brutality.

Main problem would be the fact that the models give the impression that the unit is supposed to fly.

Hum, maybe give the the unit the pathfinder artefact to represent them not really flying but floating over most difficult terrain ?

It's a popular artefact on cavalry anyways.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

Norba Miniatures has dwarf bear riders if you want an alternative to badger cavalry..

No, I could see that looking pretty good. Weird, but in a fun and orky way.

I'd be fine with these as dwarf cavalry also

realism is a lie

Mee too
In a more "Steampunk" like dwarf army they are perfect as cavalry
