I have finally started to work on the cavalry leader of the Elf Spear Unit. This was not as straight forward as one might think. The 'bit' of the horse gear around the mouth and the reins were very thick. The reins were in fact ropes meant for steering chariots.
I used the bit and reins of a Chaos Marauder horse. These were very easy to cut off, but I am afraid the head of the chaos horse was beyond saving.
The rider was far less work. All I had to do was add an arm. He originally came with a lance, and his arm as bent accordingly. This would not do, so I found a replacement. Easy enough. I glued it on and sculpted some mail to match it as best I could to the other arm.
I also added a sheep fur saddle which I copied of a Napoleonic Cavalry officer. I thought it would look cool. Not so sure now, but the work is done!
Now all I have to do is paint it! Until that happens - farewell and good health.
