A few extra photos.

These are for those who were kind enough to say they wanted more photos.

The camera gives a more truthful image of the horse colour than the scanner. The undercoat does not alter the colour as much as one might expect.

I would like to thank Mr Mike Siggins, for generously sharing his experience of working with oils. He is one of the real gentlemen of wargaming today.

"I am not a huge fan of imaginary armies": yet you magnificiently paint imaginary units!


P.S: any pics of previous years' units? I think I know of one on the OSW group, but your pics are so mouth-watering...

Great to have some fresh posts John. As I am currently working on some horses your photos and writing are an inspiration. A very elegant unit and an intriguing alternative history.

Glad to see you back in the saddle John - i've missed your blog updates. A friend of mine uses oil washes over coloured undercoats and gets a finish very similar to yours. I still use the oil dab method on top of a white undercoat (usually followed by one of more darker oil washes) - it's very time consuming, but it's what i am comfortable with so will probably not change. BTW have you tried liquin in your oil washes - it speeds up drying time to a few hours..?

As Jean Louis says, you should take a picture of the entire imaginary army that you have collected.

A very brave-looking unit indeed. And I really like the colors you've used and the textures you've achieved.
