Post Apocalyptic Horses (Waiting For Riders)

It's been a while since my last post. Life has gotten interesting.

Whilst in Spain I lost my phone which was also my camera. And thanks to various (software induced) technicalities it is is proving difficult to get another one. I have also become a foster parent which is proving to be fun. The lucky young person in question is keeping me and my other half very busy so I have hardly had a chance to pick up a paint brush (well once) in the last month. All sorts of changes have been going on at the Jackson house in the last few weeks.

These have been sat on the table for a little while waiting for the riders. These were just about finished before I went to Spain.
Painting horses has never been my favourite task but as my skills have improved I have looked more and more at  pictures of horses so that I get the colours right. Given that I haven't got round to the riders yet I thought I would take some pictures and put them up here.
I wasn't too unhappy with the end result. The ink makes some of the textures show up a little bit better. The camera I am using in tmy HD video camera with a stills option. The pics are pretty good.I'll get round to the riders eventually. I like the new mounted figure from TheScene and the Khurasan riders look pretty good too so they may have some opposition in the not too distant future.
