At the time, for our Naran version of the Barbarian Army, we did a Unit of Warriors mounted on Tiger using the Hero's tiger and for the Horsemen by performing a conversion using the lower part of the Hero and glueing over the top some other miniatures of Barbarians.

When Mr. Grazzini (Mirliton) took over F.W., we suggested to him to make the conversion to make it "official".

He understood that he had made a mistake and put a remedy by making a new version of the Tigers with the saddle.
