    I am not too sure what I will do with this recovering fallen horse but it was a very pleasing conversion.
    He started life as a Bengal Lancer and with a lot of chopping and few boxes of Milliput this is the result.
    I hope that you like this change Guys.
    All the very best

    That's a pretty impressive conversion. Do you buy Milliput by the ton?

    Cheers

    That is quite superb. I have the Lancer and Showjumper, but Breyer's horses would probably do as well.

    Thank you Huw.
    Milliput is not quite by the ton but 10 boxes a time..........cheaper that way on the internet.
    All the best

    Keith your extensive work on this horse and the end result are much closer to scratch building than conversion.Well done indeed!!!

    Thanks Mike.
    The Show Jumper has been sort-after for as long as I can remember.
    I did an Officier de chasseurs à cheval de la garde impériale with the horse and a CG young drummer boy using the face

    Hi again Bob
    I am trying to have a break, with little or no success, from sculpting.
    The idea is to brush up on my deteriorating painting skills.
    Best laid plans and all that.

    Thank you Oda.
    I am never sure where a conversion becomes a scratch. My own rule is that if I use anything that I did not model myself it is a conversion.
    It would be a good subject for discussion on the forum here.
    Cheers

    I found it a great conversion job , out of the usual poses of fallen horses and with a dramatic charge. No matter how much milliput you used, this is art !
    À bientôt

    IMpressive work on this sculpture. This is not longer a conversion. Alot of horses are build on a plastic of metal horse from a commercial one.
    I really like it.

    Hi Keith

    Good to see you posting ....

    Blooming heck you don't do things by half ......great conversion/scratch , like the way the horse is positioned head rearing up perhaps from an injury .

    If I may have a look just above the V straps , possible little bit of sanding .

    The horse furniature is really good ...how did you do the scalloped edging ?

    Crying out for a kneeling figure ..sword in hand ...perhaps slightly wounded ? ......over to you !

    All credit mate even though it's got legs !

    Thanks for sharing
