... You might want to make some horses in the unit slightly darker or lighter (or both) to break the 'model soldier impression' from a group of almost identical models? ...

Well, as the color for that "bay horse" is a 50/50 mix of two colors, it might well happened before I even know it! Laugh

best reference i have found for painitng miniature horses is in the foundry painting book

http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/books/paintbook.asp

it has a list of horse colours along with the foundry paint colours to get the same llok, and a section of techniques too.

i paint in foundry colours, so it works well for me - but there are plenty of online colour conversion lists and programs such as this one.
