    Hi Jay, thanks for your comments.
    I have veen always using Citadel Charadon granite for boots and shies, it is an amazing color for that cause all you have to do is add few washes of black and for lights you can add some buff or similar color to the base ( charadon Granite) and that will do the trick.
    Unfortunately this color is not available anymore simce it is part of the old Citadel base paint colors, the one that is supossed to be the replacement it's not even close to it.
    I am saving my last 2 pots as if it is gold.

    I have added 4 more troopers.
    At the moment workimg on the horses, all left to do on these chaps are the hats, face, shirt cuff and add the hands holding the swords. 20210526_195253.jpg 20210526_195204.jpg 20210526_195225.jpg
