Cavember has been moving on beautifully. Col Gavis has opened up his competition to any rough riders, Victoria Lamb has released her own Cavalry kits and I've seen a few really stunning Praetorian cavalry conversions. An honourable mention has to go to Col Winterborne, Check these out:
So on to my progress. I have got the basic colour on the horses. I'm going to give them more shading.
The riders are coming along too.
The thing I can't work out now is whether to keep the helmets white. I was going to paint them silver and gold as polished helmets. But I think white may go with my troopers better as my command sqauds have white helmets.
The slate on the bases is real but also painted to get the colouring. My parents have a property near a slate quarry that has that colour slate. My other Praetorians have bits of slate on their bases but I waned my cavalry charging over a slate ridge, so they have full slate bases. I have had a lot of practice getting the colour right and I'm pretty happy with how these bases have turned out.
Still there is so much more to do- and this is only my first 5. I have 30 to do all up and now Victoria has brought out her kits I'm thinking 50 would be nice in an apocalypse game....
The other thing is I can sense my Necrons moving in their long closed tomb. Its just a matter of time before they take my attention away from the cavalry.
Yep, these chaps are old!
