Remember the Macedonian cavalry.
They started of looking like this.
And then this.
Under attack from Dettol.
They are now ready to receive paint.
Shadow Grey for the saddle cloth.
Vermin Brown for the riders body.
Bestial Brown, Codex Grey, Vomit Brown, and Bleached Bone for the horses.
Manes and tails in contrasting colours.
Base in Bleached Bone.
Officers cloak in Mechrite Red.
Riders flesh in Bronzed Flesh.
Boots and helmet crest.
Horse tack in blue.
And all the fiddly bits.
Finally a wash in Windsor and Newton Nut Brown ink.
And finally finally a coat of varnish and a magnetized plastic base.
Texturing will follow on later.
