Three different manufacturers here, Gripping Beast (Arab), FireForge (Mongol) and Perry Miniatures (Wars of the Roses).
|A bit of white highlights. Makes them a lot brighter and it begins the shading as well.|
|Flat Brown to paint the patterns I saw from a few images online. Also a Mongol horse all over Flat Brown while I am at it.|
|Painted one Mongol Horse all over USA Tan Earth and decided to wet brush over the Flat Brown horse as I have a few darker looking Mongol Horses already. Used the same colour for some bed rolls on the Skewbald Mongol horse.|
German Grey all over a Mongol horse (still drying at the back), and saddles and leather and other bits and pieces on others.
Hooves as well as inside ears, and eyes and nostrils painted German Grey.
|Beige Brown for some saddles and other parts. The Arab horses have a tassle under the neck. I make all of them German Grey though it's an opportunity for some colour.|
|This Vallejo Sky Blue covers dark colours nicely so was used for a simple pattern on the Arab horse (and the riders border).|
|Flat Brown again for Saddle and other parts.|
|Burnt Umber for bed rolls behind saddles and one Mongol horse strappings at the rear.|
|Khaki for Ropes, Bed roll, and strapping on the Arab horse.|
|USA Tan Earth saddle and strappings.|
|Army Painter Plate Mail Metal here and there. A few streaks of German Grey on 1 Mongol horse tail imitating what I saw in photo reference and Khaki was also used on the arrow bag on the Perry horse earlier.|
|Soft Tone by Army Painter wash. I thinned it a bit for the Skewbald horse in center.|
|The white darkens with the wash so another careful hit with white to help it look brighter again. A good time to do any corrections on the Brown areas as well and perhaps retouch the base if any paint went there.|
