A very nice horse miniature. Very realistic.

Beautiful creation. Your sculpt would be a joy to paint, particularly if the rider matched the quality of the mount.

I do hope this proves a commercial success and we see him appear in the best known ranges. There are enough heroic posed horses, galloping around.

Walking is welcome for parade dress or even 90% of a "charge"!. Frankly, standing still might be even better. Perry, for example, do the standing cuirassiers' and standing French Light Cavalry horses………very very welcome……….but that is it, beyond some officer steeds!

That is a very roman nose horse, nice job :)

Very nice horse, seems very realistic to me(though I don't know much about their physiology).

The anatomy is more what can let them down, though, if we are talking physiology, one does see some very strange poses too, I must admit. Some strange leg flexions and galloping horses do not usually have as many legs on the ground as is a must for modellers, requiring some stability and resilience.

They can be a bit puny (horse, not modellers), they can be a bit slender, with spindly legs and they can be curiously massive in front and tiny behind (still, horses, not…….). For each a different manufacturer comes to mind.

The Roman nose is certainly seen in horses…….this horse is proportionally nicely done. Not 100% convinced by posing of rear legs, but I am being over-critical. Pulling a cannon or caisson out of Wavre to Plancenoit mud, perfect. Very nice work

Well, horses are the hardest thing to understand in the world, after women.
