I recently spent some time reading over my copy of Kevin Dallimore's Wargames Foundry painting book. In particular I re-read the section on painting horses. I have about 160 cavalry to paint for my War of the Roses collection!
I have spent some time preparing the horses ready for their 'oil' coat. For the darker horses I'll be using a black oil paint mixed with a little whit spirit. For the lighter colour horses I'll be using a burnt umber. This is my first foray into using oils on horses. I am keen to see what I can achieve.
I will post a couple of pictures as they progress!
