PostSubject: Custom carousel horses   Sun Oct 28, 2012 9:02 pm

A little backstory: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. This brand has a history of doing very nice horses in entirely plausible poses. When they released the 1/32 version of the set, however, they goofed... the only horse poses included are the upper two - the Stumbler and the Swimmer. The awkward poses and molded on tack means they're nearly uncustomizable, and for years I've been on the verge of throwing them out.
But then... Idea Who says awkward poses and molded on tack has to be a drawback?

Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner... I know they're not very good, but now I know how to do it (hardest part: drilling the hole for the pole, because the drill bit on my dremel is too short by about two millimeters). The color on the first horse is intentionally incorrect, because I was trying for a vintage look.

The thing is, of course, that I tend to get slightly obsessed whenever I discover a new hobby. So now I've been going through my body boxes looking for other horses to carouselize...

I think they are awkward attemts at making gaited horses, they look like attempts at Pace and Tölt scratch

I think the first one is actually meant to be stumbling - which is an excellent pose for a battlefield diorama, but not when it comprises half your army. (Unless the Scots Greys had a reputation for clumsiness, that is.)
I'm currently working on another of their [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], stay tuned!

Horse #6, that's not an awkward pose, that's a dislocated knee! affraid horse #4 on the bottom, that's a perfect pose for a carousel! Can't wait to see more!
