Himini official news. "Crazy Horse, 1870s"

    Dear hobby colleagues, dear friends!

    Himini first spring release! Another but very special bust!

    "Crazy Horse, 1870s"

    The name was not chosen by chance. Once again we wanted to remember the name of the great warrior and one of the most worthy sons of Lakota people. Unfortunately, there is not a single photo of Crazy Horse, he refused to be photographed even after the end of his struggle. This fact made our work a little easier. Looking through photos of North American Natives and seeing a huge number of very expressive faces, we decided that this new kit should be a bust. The main idea was to show our hero on a horseback, so that the horse head and neck could be seen in all details, because these wonderful animals have rich facial expressions too. Moreover when the horse is reared up for example for the convenience of finding a target by an experienced shooter, the rider is as close as possible to the horse's neck. This is the best moment to show it in the bust of a man on a horseback.
    We like the version that some of the Indians in the Battle at Little Bighorn were armed with the famous "Yellowboy" Winchester carbines mod.1866, so we decided to give an accurate 1:9 model into the hands of a Crazy Horse riding on a crazy horse! :)

    There are very many versions that can be assembled from this kit. It includes two heads, different head coverings, different types of chest ornaments, two horse masks and much more. Even the earrings were made as separate details. You can use details included in the kit or make by yourself a "canonic version" of the appearance of the young Crazy Horse: round wire rings, with a suspended pebble.

    Scale - 1:9
    Sculptor: Stepan Nikolaev

    Available to order in two versions: with and without a horse bust.
    Item #, without horse: Hi-B-005
    Item #, with horse: Hi-B-004

    The indian is fully hand sculpted, except carbine. The horse is a mix of 3d and hand sculpt. All small details are hand sculpted. Horse masks are also "non-digital" parts))

    I think you very well might be right , good to see the headwear option and with or without horse

    Nice to see it's virtually all traditional sculpting though it's hard to tell with such skill

    This will be excellent painted up

    Thanks for sharing

    This is a prefect example of a museum piece in waiting, love it! The facial work is incredibly well done. Seeing a foe coming at you with such a fierce and intensely determined look on his face just might make you soils yur drawers. Excellent work on the "Big Dog" too, very well done.

    Cheers, Ski.
