As promised I will start the WIP on my next 7YW unit: The British 3rd Regiment of Dragoon Guards. I started out with base-coating the figures in Army Painter Rat Fur. This is a reddish brown which is very nice for buildings, terrain features but also for doing horses.
I hate doing horses so anything to make the process go faster is welcome. Therefore I used a wash of Valejo Game colours ink Skin Wash 72.093, to give the horses coats a bit more body.
Next up I gave some of the horses, but not all, black manes with Valejo German Camouflage Black.
This was followed by the drummer's horse, they were grey, receiving the same colour as basecoat.
Next up will be all the base tones for the rest of the details, they will follow in Part II of this WIP.
