You have seen these skeleton cavalry in the prep stage for quite a while, but now here is the finished color test piece! It was really odd to be painting a skeletal horse that was not one of the old plastic GW figures.
There are definitely a lot more complicated things going on with each of the joints. Many more tiny bones!
After working with this one, I am glad that I chose it for the painting bone video. There are lots of different things going on, and you have just enough items like straps and armor to provide opportunities for color and shading contrasts.
It really was the ideal figure for what I needed which is very cool! I could get all sorts of fun color variations. Subtle green and reddish tints, even some greyish blue in places. All this provides for much more interesting colors to look at besides bleached bone and brown wash. In fact, there was no bleached bone used. :-)
On the flip side, it is not so complicated that it will require a frenzied pace to get it all finished in the time limit.
I hope that you all enjoy following the video of this guy!
