When the big war started the Imperial Riding School, as many other things was militarized. Acrobatical and ceremonial riders, having perfected their skill soon were used as scouts under the name “Owls”. Nowadays everyone partaking in the war has to have gone though basic military training, before those willing to take the heavily specialized training of mounted marksmanship.

The Owl Guard's inventory consists of basic weapons such as a knife and pistol. They have also been equipped with harpoons, allowing them to pin enemy vehicles, immobilizing them, or dragging them around. They can setup tripwires spanning large areas, changing the control of a battlefield within minutes.

In the cold of the north their equipment had to be adapted like any other unit. Well-fed boots, armor and jackets are a must for everyone. Their collars can of course be popped, and together with their goggles and nose protection will cover the entire face from the high speeds on horseback. Their rig is finalized by three-fingered gloves, a must for any cavalier in the cold.

This is absolutely gorgerous!

Just a question - why do scouts wear a heavy metal armor which can slow them down?

lord have mercy! holy crap this is superb

absolutely stunning detail in the jacket!

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/18/2014 14:51

The jacket is really outstanding.....like the rest! I don't see anything out of place.
I wonder how much effort take you to make just one of these...

Another great piece! I think I like the rendering of the jacket the most, cloth folds, those stripes and the fur.

How long do these approximately take for you to make?

Another solid piece all around, always interesting to read the pixelation threads behind these, leaving a legacy of your progress. My favorite part of this is definitely the helmet.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 10/18/2014 13:03

Technically this is the best of the bunch. Almost flawless. Well done!
