The Charging Mamluk...

...with apologies to Géricault  and the French Romantics.
The fairly familiar Willie figure with a few gentle bends and twists. I just need to bash out some wire for a scimitar. And prop up the horse with some brass wire so it doesn't sag to the ground under it's own weight.

Elastolins may be a bit light weight (literally) but their horses may rear for decades without ever fearing for their ankles. My Britain's Hussar Officer on the other hand is waiting for someone to pull his horse off of him, brace it upright and camouflage the supports so he can take the fields again. Its been a few years now but his day will come.

This fella will look magnificant when done.

I have rarely seen a Willie handled so well.

Can't wait to see him and his steed fully painted!
