Are the Bicorne/Renegade Horses sculpted by the same guy who did the original Artizan Designs before North Star Nick started distributing for them?
Could be, hard to tell; as I have those figures as well I will dig them out and have a look. The Bicorne horses have the best combination of detail, weight bearing, body proportion and hoof/leg placement of any of the historical ranges I have (with the possible exception of the Ebob Mongols, now defunct). Some horse sculpts are awful but I realize that sculptors may have to make compromises for casting reasons. I probably pay more attention to those kind of details as I work in the horse industry.

To name a few, the eBob Mongol horse dollies are now used by Gripping Beast, Artizan designs, 1st Corp and Crusader so their legacy lives on :)

Ah, you will certainly have a better idea of what a horse should look like (micro and macro) than me as I've only ever ridden the donkeys at Blackpool when I was very small :)

Darrell, I'm pretty sure Nick Collier did all his own horses for the Bicorne, Renegade and TAG ECW / TYW ranges (They vary a lot in look though).

Artizan Designs was Mike Owen's own brand before Nick E took over sales. I'd imagine these are Mike's horse sculpts, but I don't know. They don't look like Collier horses to me.

Thanks Richard. I've got models from all three ranges and I think they match up stylistically. I hadn't realised that nick had sculpted the horses though.

I don't know why but I keep thinking they are of a similar style..... probably all in my head   lol
