From BrendonW - Git on ya Horses (161 points)

15 x 28mm Horse and Riders, 2 x 28mm foot (1 hand painted shield and all Plastic).

Still on leave but this week we have had the Grandkids visit so not as much time for painting and only one post for the slave to administrate. [SLAVE? Moi? Here's hoping you copped a dirty nappy!]

I did have a lot of horses without mounts ready so that helped a lot. The Arab Shields had also been mostly completed before this week so that was helpful as well.


First the 3 Perry Miniatures Light Horse riders. White and grey horses take me a little longer than brown or black so don't know why I chose this week to paint them.




Next is more Gripping Beast Arabs for the growing mostly mounted Army. I gave 2 of the riders shields that actually come in the infantry set. They are not in the mounted sets. All LBM decals except for the foot mounted horn blower.



Last Fireforge Plastic Mongols. There are some parts from the Arab Heavy Calvary set on these.




That's it until next week. Enjoy your painting everyone. Cheers

Another lovely entry and a great addition to a collection that must really be chewing up some shelf space now Brendon. Grey horses do take a little more effort depending on your technique but they always add something special I think. I've not seen the FFG Mongols assembled and painted til now and they're a most impressive sight.

This lot earns you another 161 points including 1 for the shield. It would have been more but I'm too busy slaving away to add them up. :-) Cheers, Millsy

    1. Thanks. The Mongol horses I actually painted before they arrived. So only had the riders to do.

    1. The plastic kits are excellent. They end up looking so animated. The resin heavy Mongol cav I found a very big disappointment. Very inferior sculpts compared to the plastic sets. They will probably paint up reasonable though. Cheers
