I couldn't stop thinking about it! I needed something like this, so I went back to the internet. I searched and searched for inspiration. I was striking out on what I wanted in the undead category when the world wide web threw me a curve ball! While searching for skeleton horse this photo came up.
Once I saw this, I new my project needed to change slightly as I could pull this off and would be way happier with the results.
It just so happened my dear ol' chum Blue had just sent me a Marauder Unicorn, that would work perfectly for my mount.
I had remembered Nico had done some amazing chaos knights awhile back, and one of them happened to be a unicorn version. So I started there.
The stressful part on Black Vasken was I had to sculpt my own helmet plume! Gah I was a bit nervous as I am terribly impatient, and using putty is so fiddly to me that I always end up mucking everything up. The orginal plume ahd been cutoff an exhisting figure, but I ddin't feel like waiting or forking out the cash for jsut the plume. So I set to work, and I am quite pleased with the results.
I also did some slight additions with putty on the unicorn. Some mane work, and I reworked his eyes as the originals were to small for my tastes.
Then I had to paint the skeleton on. I was a bit apprehensive, but with a couple small reworks it turned out splendidly. But I will let you be the judge.
