Swedish TYW Horse
Hard on the heels of the Finns and Croats are two squadrons of Swedish Horse. These took me ages to finish as I really hate painting horses and I was not very happy with the 'look' of the units until after I had applied a coat of shading fluid. I think they look good. One trick I've learnt about my horse painting phoebia is to undercoat and paint them on the sprues and then assemble them. Minimal touching up required. Obviously only works for plastics! I've stuck Wallenstein's Lifeguard together and undercoated them along with some more Finns and a couple of stands of dismounted dragoons. Thankfully more tufts are on the way, as are more mdf bases from East Riding Miniatures.
