... 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

I'm now taking commission work!

Examples of works I’ve done; http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=41668.0 and http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?action=gallery;su=user;cat=132;u=1642

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


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.
