Here's the painted horses. There's still work to do in terms of muck on the legs etc. Picture is a bit washed, can't see the washes around the veins etc.
Gone for a desat look to them a little bit. Make them look like tired, workhorses as opposed to bright GW style horses. Looks much better in real life I must say.
Starting work on the troopers this afternoon.
Don't forget, the last thing will tie everything together, that is the painting of the base - it will drag everything on the diorama together.
