    I've been working on this project for several weeks now and decided to post some photos of where it is at now. Still a ton of work to do on the horse. The rider / knight has been base coated, but thats all.

    The figure kit is a 75mm Pegaso Roaming Knight. I have made some color changes mainly in the horse as I felt the box art did not really show the detail sculpted and casted into the horse. Today all I was able to get done was attach the 4 part mane and highlight it afterwards.

    Guy, pictures are not doing this one justice. A great start and I have to admit, as much as I liked it on Saturday, the mane has added a ton of drama to this piece! Anxious to see this one come together!

    That looks great Guy.
    What kind of base are you going to put the horse on..

    Thanks Andy. I am not sure about the base yet. The awkward size and shape of the kit base that needs to stay with the horse makes choosing a base difficult. I will probably bring out several size bases and see what the completed figure looks like on each.

    Jay & Stefano ~ Thanks for the feedback my friends.

    Jay ~ The addition of the mane since you saw it Saturday really changed the look of the horse.

    Guy,
    The horse is looking fantastic .. I have this on order, so when you are done you know I'll be bugging you for paint suggestions...

    Guy,

    Beautiful.. it is such a dramatic pose for the horse.. and the knight..
    fits right in.

    The dry brush on the mane is really great.

    I like also how you have the block of wood and the toothpicks to hold the
    small parts. I am going to make one of those and try it out.
