The various straps, harnesses, collars, bridles, and reins have their wash of dark brown.
Whew! Well, I juts finished all of the straps, harnesses, etc. a short while ago on the horses for the second batch of wagons.
This must surely be one of the most tedious processes involved with painting any sort of horses for a pre-20th century tabletop army, cavalry or transport animals, but it's done. I actually used a rather large, new #4 round brush wih synthetic bristles and a good point to do all of this and did not make too many mistakes that needed cleaning up. Luckily.
But now, it's on to the white markings on the equine muzzles legs, and ankles before continuing to the small metal bits and pieces. Oh, and that stack of pontoons lurking in the back needs doing, but they should be fairly straightforward. Then, comes the varnishing stage and finally the groundwork on the bases.
And then finally -- ha, ha, ha -- the last batch of five transport vehicles: three wagons and two carts along with their horses and an ox. Slowly, but surely, the pontoon and supply train is taking shape.
