Sound like an awesome idea? It does to me.

Too bad I don’t know how to model ac good pair of wings like the PAs do, or I’d totally do it1

I believe someone mentioned that the epic wings work on the new horse. Have not tried it myself yet.

I’d try what ever wings you do have already. You will have to parent them I think and may need to shift them around but its worth a try.

CWRW mentioned working on a unicorn add-on for the DAZ Horse 2. also wings. Someone did a render in the PC renders contest of the DAZ Horse 2 with the Grane (sp?) wings for the MilHorse.

Regarding unicorns, the thing that makes me cross is that traditionally, and heraldically they *are not horses*. They only have horse-like *heads*. They are technically chimeras and it is believed that the people who claim to have seen them were actually describing some breed of antelope (oryx leucorix [sp?] is the typical attribution). But heraldically they are composite beasts, and therefore classified as monsters.

They have cloven hooves, which the designer of the MilHorse unicorn add-on was aware of, but they are supposed to have “lion’s” tails, not horse’s tails (I suppose a donkey tail would do, but you’d want more of a tassel end) and that wasn’t in the old package. They are also described as having a body like a deer’s so I wouldn’t expect them to be as large as a horse either.

Frankly, what I’m looking forward to is a morph package to turn the horse into a deer or antelope. It isn’t as much of a reach as a Llama, and we’ve got that. And further packages to cover a broader range of deer or antelope breeds would be very welcome, too. The old DAZ Buck (which doesn’t even have a doe morph) and the pronghorn antelope are both getting rather elderly and could use an update.

Yes the Kirin was the closest that came to being a true mythological unicorn really

And goat’s beards. They’re supposed to have beards as well.

Unicorn. Old French, unicorne. Latin, unicornis. Literally, one horned: unus, one, and cornu, a horn. A fabulous animal resembling a horse with one horn. ~ The last unicorn.    <- That’s the first thing I think of when I hear the word unicorn :D

I’ve got this book Historia et veritate unicornis when I was young and it has some very lovely illustrations of unicorns. Not horse like but more like goats or deer, very fragile with thin legs, big ears and beards.

Well, I grew up thinking a unicorn was a horned horse with wings and Pegasus was Hercules pet. I may be smart, but smart people are ignorant too. raspberry

The Pegasus is an actual winged horse, and it is from Greek mythology (although I think it was Perseus rather than Heracles who was associated with it—I could be misremembering). But a unicorn isn’t a horse at all. The cuddly 1-horned horses are a very twee abomination that seem to have taken over the popular imagination in the ‘70s. Usually with rainbows somewhere in evidence.

Actually, there was a couple of hippie types who managed to breed a one-honed goat which I think they named Lancelot and advertised as “the living unicorn”. At least one of his offspring also was single horned. There were a number of photographs, and I think a calendar or two. But it was a while ago and I can’t recall any more details.

A horse with both wings and horn is called an “Alicorn”.

I cant wait to have a unicorn and pegasus addon set! one of my favorite types of mythology creatures :D

oh i remember “the living unicorn”! It turned out that it was done through surgery. All they did was transplant the little horn numbs that the goats have to the center of their forehead. it attaches to the skull and grows like normal and voila! instant unicorn - well technically its a unicorn I’d say ;P
