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!
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.
This MOC ranked overall third in BBC#71! I was really surprised to see it get to the top three places considering very little attention had been paid to it on BZPower. But oh well... third place on a BBC... I'll take it!
PS. Just to make one thing absolutely clear. The cape came in a Toy Story set from 2012 (I think). It belonged to Zurg. Therefore it is purist. BZPower contests are purist-only, so this MOC would have been DQ'ed had I used a non-purist part.
