  1. A while back I ordered some elves from Thunderbolt Mountain by the legendary Tom Meier of Ral Partha founding. They are beautiful, but I have a question -- advice to ask, really, about the horses. These are definitely elven horses, impossibly elegant, refined, like an Arabian cubed, almost insect-like, like the three-dimensional embodiment of George Stubbs' stunning eighteenth century horse portraits. Which means they are gorgeous, but yikes, their legs are thin. So I have, for example, this model: Which, by the way, is true 25mm scale, so even smaller than it looks. Now of course it needs a little filing and clean up, but my question is a little more material. I am scared to remove the support sprues under its legs. I have terrible visions of that one rail-thin rear ankle supporting the entire model and succumbing to even gentle in-game handling. I appeal to the combined wisdom and experience of the boards. How would you deal with this? Is it kosher to leave the sprues in? Can they be maybe camouflaged? Painted black and pretending they are not there? Covered with tall grass? Will more experienced modellers mock me for my cowardice? Help?
