Thanks everyone for your kind and very encouraging comments!
Some questions that have popped up in other posts I figured I'd answer here just in case there are others wondering the same thing.
-The eyes are genie turban jewels and they are connected by a squashed rubber hose that was threaded through the helmet.
-Yes he has a chicken brain
perhaps not the first thing you look for in a battle horse... but gives a nice jaw look
-The legs are again not my invention as shown in the description link, and they are in fact very sturdy! Im more afraid of the skeletal arms breaking than the connection being weak.
-And if you havent looked at Eilonwy77
photostream its a must
especially if your ever going to work on tapestry, tiling, or stained glass windows!
