  2. These turned out beautifully and are exactly what I needed. I've not done horses before and I now have ten 15mm from Essex to do. I've primed and inked one of them and will use it to learn on. I'll be bookmarking this page to look at the closeups on the horses as a guide on what to shoot for.

    Thank You!

  3. @Phil, thank you :-)...next unit...infantry!

    @Anne, thank you for bookmarking ;-)...remember you can use washing layers on 15mm too in the same manner.
    Work as a watercolour with the darkest washing at the end ;-)

    @Roby, il bordeaux lo uso spesso come base per il rosso artistico. La sovrapposizione dà un rosso intenso.

    @Tamsin, thank you Tamsin, my ECW army is smaller then your TYW army but it' s growing...slowly...:-)

    Marzio.
