Seasons greetings.

A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all who read my blog. A final couple of pics for 2012, the completed horse base referred to below. I'm sticking to just five basic colours for my horses now, enough to add variety to the units. I'll record these here for future reference, these have evolved out of a lot of trial and error with 6mm horseflesh, which requires some slightly exaggerated highlights especially on the hind quarters and the neck and raised muscles.
  • Citadel Calthan Brown - highlighted with Calthan + white.
  • Cote D Arms 'chestnut' highlighted with Foundry 'Tan'. ( + a small touch of white can be used sparingly)
  • Cote D Arms 'Buff' perfect for roans! A touch of tan will warm it up slightly and a touch of white can be added to highlight.
  • Blacks, highlighted with Foundry Charcoal black.
  • Greys - 33b Arctic grey highlighted with pure white.


  1. Great project. Will be following your posts with interest.

    Best wishes,

  2. Looks great.

    I am following your project and would like to create something similar, but I'm not sure my painting skills are sufficient for the desired result.

    Best regards
