Opening pictures of the Dragon Prince unit which is my next major HE project. Painting 7 of them in total although I have 10 as a unit of 7 is all I intend on fielding in any tournament army. Did consider using Silver Helm horses for the unit as they stand up better and as more of the models have kept their tails.
Horses are based on a mixture of moulded bases from IronHalo.net and standard cavalry bases covered in sand. Going to keep colour scheme fairly simple and mutted. Surcoats on horses will be white along with reins in similar fashion to how I paint white robes on Elven infantry. Armour on horses heads will be strictly metallic with highlights of bronze (as with Eagles on White Lions helmets) on the Dragon emblems but nowhere else.
Horses I am aiming to turn out something like the picture below with lighter muted grey coats and speckled (spotty?) bits all over them.
Still haven't figured out how I want to paint the Princes themselves so am trawling the forums/blogs/web for ideas.
Finished the crews for my Repeater Bolt-Throwers last night. I have four of these old style metal Bolt-Throwers which honestly I quite like. Painting the Bolt-Throwers themselves has been problematic as the overall blandness of the model doesn't help, i.e., there isn't any molding or sculpting on the legs and base. RBT themselves are still unfinished.
Snow bases still need some work. Going to have to redo them all mixing Snow Flock with Baking Soda and water down PVA to get a better texture and overall effect.
