Edit: This MOC got third place in BBC#71! It's my highest ever standing in a BBC! Thanks to everyone for your votes!!!!!

 

German folklore is rich with tales of horrors, whose marks have driven entire genres of books and literary productions.

And we all know of a horseman who rides without a head, searching for mindless vengeance, and his lost skull.


So it brings me great joy to have built this iconic character, and posted it for your eyes to see!

Other Side (Showing tail in more detail...lol!)


I've built several horses over the years, the most recent of which was in 2012. I think this is so far my best in terms of scale, execution, and dare I say photography as well! The picture, while a bit too grainy to my liking, has come out rather nicely. A lot of credit for this build goes to Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, without whom some of the details would not have been possible.

Really nice work! As your third place finish shows, this is a very well done MOC! I agree that the horse is very good; you chose good pieces for the legs, hooves, and body, and the head is fittingly menacing! The horse and the horseman fit together well, with just enough splashes of orange to alleviate the dark color scheme. I think it's cool that the pieces used for the hooves probably can't usually be used as feet, but for a horse, they're perfect!

 

Great job and congratulations on third place!

Thank you! What you see as orange is actually red, poorly photographed as always :P After spending a total of 17 hours on the horse, I couldn't spend any more time to figure out how to light up  my photography environment. That and I suck at photoediting of all kinds so...

 

I also think I could have a bit more when it comes to the rider, but the main focus was the horse, and again.. after having spent 17 hours on a MOC you kinda want to move on to start writing up all your reports and all that :P
