I’ve been working up the colour with ink and paint washes, but the colours don’t look enough like the colours of real horses to me.
I read a few forum posts on the subject (on The Miniatures Page) but no-one was actually giving away which colour paints they used for specific types (eg bay, chestnut). By chance I stumbled on a reference to Howard Hues’ range of basic horse colours.
So I bought some.
The turma begins to come to life ... but the colours aren’t quite right. Hopefully Howard Hues will rescue the situation.
