Gashants,Sandrunners or ?

Righto chaps, its time for you to help solve a dilemma of mine...

Having been a longtime fan of Hinterland Miniatures (http://hinterlandminiatures.weebly.com), last year I bought a brace of the excellent trencher figures to be my Sturmfraulein detachment. I also got some of the Lancer cavalry figs, sans horses so I could put them on something a little more exotic

So what choice of mounts?  I have these two in mind but would love to hear about any other options 

First up is the Gashant, the classic Native Martian mounts on the Space 1889 setting.
These are the Royal Mounted Gashant Corps from kmfrye's excellent Burning Sands of Syrtis Major blog here.  


Alternatively, these caught my eye long ago but I never had a use for them.  Urban War's Junker faction have these excellent looking 'sandrunner' mounts, which are available in these three variants sans riders.

Love the way these are painted

So what do you think chaps? Help me solve this concundrum!

For me that's a no-brainer: the Gashants definitely! I have the Sturmfraulein as well but no lancers yet. I'd like to have the support weapon set as well but for now I have too much other unpainted lead...

Love the Trench Raiders! My vote would be for the Sandrunners...but either way I shall look forward to seeing them all painted up!

Sandrunners for me!

They have to be Dino riders surely!

Tough decision. I'd maybe go with the sandrunners, myself, but that's mainly because I already have gashants with Martian colonial riders waiting in the queue.

Why not both? Regular Troopers on the Sandrunners and Officers on Gashants? Perhaps over a certain rank or class of breeding would only ride the Gashant ans a noble, regal beast of burden but the average soldier gets the 'workhorse'?
