Nothing much happening today, although I plan to work some more on the Bishop's Horse command element sometime. The troopers are mounted on chestnuts but the commander, guidon and trumpeter will be riding grays. I began with a black undercoat, then a good coat of white, followed by a white wash. Grays have markings on their hind quarters that I replicate using a fine-pointed hard pencil. Just draw the markings on (they resemble small circles in 28mm scale) and put a thin wash of white then a thin wash of light gray over all.
