Throwing a monkey wrench into the mix in order to get more content out I thought finishing off these guys and letting my ideas collect for the leader and his retinue was in order. Switching my direction of travel like throwing the E-brake and drifting into these minis seemed like a good idea. We’ll see how well it worked out from your opinions.

Horse painting commenced and breaks down as follows….

Brown:
Airbrush VMA Burnt Umber 71.040
Drybrush RMS Intense Brown 09138
Drybrush RMS Chestnut Gold 09073
Wash GW Reikland Fleshshade

Black:
Airbrush VMA Black
Drybrush 1:1 VMA black/RMS Midnight Blue
Wash Nuln Oil

White:
Airbrush Gray
Drybrush 1:1 gray/RMS white (slight contamination of previous brown that wasn’t cleaned off well)

I initially had no set idea for what could be done for the patterns of fabric but I believed that I might want to see about getting some help in reducing the detail level somehow. That didn’t happen as I kept rolling around the thought of “If you do something, do it well; leave a sign to let the world know that you were there”.

Here I’ve looked at the footsoldiers and considered what was done with the dishdasha on the 4pt box art for soldiers and hearthguard. I think I went a step beyond what I intended but I stepped back and considered the color palette. These needed to be brighter as it would be more expensive and attention grabbing; my problem had been solved by pigment prices.

Further on with the cavalry I had an idea about the riders. Yet again I find myself both loving and hating the fact that I push the envelope for detail at times. I was inspired by the decorated Easter eggs that are typically seen all made up for the celebrations of Orthodox Christians and then my recollection of the intricate tile work of the Islamic world.
