I really like the pose of Eorl actually, and the fact he is a "natural rider"... you will have noticed that there is no saddle no bridle and no reins! A "wide rider" which is exactly the case for these ancestral horse tamer... Beside if I remember well, Felarof could not have bridle nor reins, this horse was too wide for that

I have got mine today! Eorl looks pretty good! So does Felarof. But there is one little thing: what`s the matter with Felarof´s upper lip? It´s contours are too sharp in my opinion. Or is this an exceptionell minor defect of my Felarof?
As the 'sponsor' of the Eorl/Felarof combo I thought I'd better just drop in to say he does indeed look bloody brilliant! I shall have to buy one once I've given thought to what other figures I need to order at the moment (to justify the postage costs and all that...). Anyway, thanks to The Man for a fine bit of mini sculpting. A Tubb Triumph.
