@Malevengion - that's awesome! Your suggestions hit dead on - I wouldn't have thought of a map case and a compass. THANKS!
@Rogério - Thank You! I'm honoured :)
Maybe I should call the rider Arzach after all :)
So, to complete the sculpt I gave the rider some thick mittens.
As with the rest of his clothes they are fur lined
And then I took Malevengion's suggestions and sculpted an open map-case, some binoculars, and a compass.
I'm really pleased with the result.
And finally a large set of high-quality images.
The sculpt will now cure over the Christmas holidays and in early January I will take it to Karlsruhe and get it burned.
I hope you like it and thank you all for riding shotgun and providing feedback and suggestions!
P.S: The next project will be painting the "Ork Titan" Beppo aka the "Slug Hunter" ;-)
