He is painted with acrylics and given a coat of varnish. He has a leather collar with a large brass medallion, to which his chain reins are attached. He has a fringed leather saddle, with a belt under the belly.

The armour boots, breastplate, epaulets, and helmet are all sculpted from Super Sculpey and painted silver, then "aged" with brown paint.
