Another Painting Update. . .

Still not much to look at, but the horses are starting to look more like, well, horses in this second squadron of horse grenadiers.

I've spent about six hours over the last couple of days working on the horses, painting white markings and hooves, plus applying black GW acrylic black to the boots and bearskins of the riders.  I'll go ahead and work on the horses now until they are finished before returning to the troopers and trumpeters.  

The next couple of steps will be the application of that medium-dark gray as a highlight to the horse tack plus the silver and brass oils to the bits and buckles of said tack.  The bald-faced horse in the front row (third from the left) will also get some fleshtone around its nostrils and lips.  I also need to work on the trumpeter's horse to prepare it for dappling.  Lots to do over the next several days then!

My Dear Heinz-Ulrich, Greetings!

Your work continues to impress - the final result should be very impressive. I know others join me in hoping to see these lovely figures take the field in desperate battle.

Thank you, Gerardus! Still plugging away, and the horse tack is nearly finished on these. Real life has intruded the last couple of weeks as I prepare for the coming academic term, but little by little.

Best Regards,
