    Looks great, Roc! Sorry for not following this thread but do you undercoat w/ acrylics? Your oil finish looks very rich in tone. Well done!

    Looks very good, I like the natural shine of mane and tail, what did you used to get that? Varnish or it´s just the oils shine? Nice done Rocco,

    Hi Rocco
    Looking good

    I would really think about inserting a thin nail or a metal spike into one of the horses legs to attach it to the base to give it strength as He stands on only 2 out of the 4 feet and mine leaned over quite a bit after a while despite having a longer nail inserted into one of the legs and it was quite tricky to repair
    Just a thought, it will be easier now than later

    Apart from that it is looking very good

    That takes care of the easy bit! Now for the figure...............

    Cheers

    Anastasios., thanks for the kind words.
    To achieve the sheen on the mane and tail, I adde a few drops of Llinseed oil to the mixture.

    Cheers

    Ciao Rocco,
    la pittura del cavallo mi piace molto.
    Per quanto riguarda le rifiniture rosse sono già pronte così?
    Se si, io personalmente lavorerei sui chiaro-scuri del rosso accentuando le diversità tra luci e ombre.
    Oh! intendiamoci sono gusti personali.
    Aspetto di vedere il pezzo completato.
    Nonostante siano passati diversi anni, devo dire che la serie dei samurai P.M.
    è enz'altro sempre di altissimo livello.
    E pensare che qualche anno fà scambiai il generale seduto Kato.... con qualcos'altro. Mha!...che stronz...
    ciao
    maui ;)

    P.S.
    Io ho il kit: SH1 Saxon Housecarle c.1066
    ma per caso è il primo kit delle Poste Militaire
