The fallen mounted figure is attached to base and left arm armature glued to bed roll of standing horse. Sculpting the arm took some time, I had to be extremely mindful of the sword of the mounted figure for fear of breaking off. In hindsight, I should have made all sword armed hands seperate. Luckily, no incidents and sculpting the arm and hand turned out better than planned.

A fellow modeler asked me what colors I used for the bay/chestnut colored horse. I primed the piece black and used the colors pictured.

I like using unraveled twine for field grass. It has a natural twist or snarl.

I've been a painting fool lately. Painting a figure mounted to a horse, NOT easy.

Using a cheap synthetic brush for base coats and saving the Sable brushes for finer painting.

At the remote workbench cleaning up and shiming horses. I have an idea for a large mounted vignette down the road. The good thing about having a workbench away from my current projects, is that I can walk away any time, leaving a mess and manageable clutter.
