I hope you keep popping back to check out my ramblings and please leave comments.
I have recently acquired a small commission for a couple of Horse sculpts for a friend.
Mmmmm, been a while since I last sculpted a horse (about 15 years actually).
So, Green stuff at the ready I suppose.
Bit of planning was required as both horses will be used either together as a team or as a single animal pulling a small cart.
There are various different tack options, depending on wherabouts they are going to fit into a historical context.
I think a simplistic approach to the tack would be better although I could get these cast as light tack and re-sculpt in heavier tack.
I think the best route would be a medium tack that would work for all.
First up is the armatures.
I decided both horses would be in a slow steady walk.
Dolly's (armatures) completed.
I then started to bulk out the armatures with Greenstuff and leave now for a few days to fully harden.
I do need to trim back a little when I have done a final adjustment on the pose.
These are a couple of the wagons the horses will be used for.
These are from Martin at Warbases and they are very nice indeed. Hopefully they will be more types to follow.

Contact warbases (above link) if interested in purchasing some of these.

Next Sculpt will be an Oxen for wagon pulling duties.
