ECW Work in Progress Parliamentary Horse I

English Civil War - raw metal of horse - 3 x 12 man units plus 2 standard bearers
The Parliamentary Horse begins to take shape as I have some 77 minis now on the painting shelf, for progress over the next month.

Ideally come this autumn I shall be ready to take the field against the cavaliers of Bluebear Jeff.

Hi
Could you post other pictures showing your 'painting devices' for cavalty in full? It looks a very useful trick
Regards

Certainly Rafael,

Perhaps I could do a short video or two of the makings.

Something to consider for this weekend as I am about to base coat these horsemen.

Rafael,

I use "craft sticks" for all of my figures . . . and hot glue the riders to the sticks.

However this means that I still have to paint their feet after everything else is done.

Murdock's system takes up a bit more room (although not much) and eliminates my "hot glue foot problem".

I'll second Rafa's request for a how-to!
